Running is good for you – that is a fact. At Arosea Life Balance Hotel in Ultental-Val d'Ultimo, we firmly believe that targeted training allows you to perceive and sense your own body more consciously and intensely.
Running is great fun, keeps you fit and even helps melting love handles, which is a welcome side effect. It makes us feel more relaxed, with new strength and an increased quality-of-life on a spiritual level. Running in a unique natural landscape such as the one in Ultental-Val d'Ultimo, in the heart of the Stelvio National Park, has a much more positive effect on body, spirit and soul.
For a long time, however, running was considered a relatively easy sport and rather underestimated. "Anyone can run" – it is true until a certain extent, but this does not necessarily mean that everybody does it correctly! Arosea Life Balance Hotel has special guided running weeks for your active Alps summer holiday in South Tyrol. Targeted training units under professional supervision and a tailored nutritional programme make running at Hotel Arosea a holistic concept with a high fun factor.
Nordic Walking has been a popular sport for quite some time. It is ideal for everyone who wishes to improve their walking fitness and move correctly in everyday life. Nordic Walking uses the same movements as cross-country skiing, but is mainly practised over meadows and snow-free roads. Since Nordic Walking uses poles, the routes normally cover a medium to long range.
Nordic Walking reduces strain on the musculoskeletal system, relieves muscle tensions in the shoulder and neck area and improves the heart and circulatory system. It also burns 400 cal per hour, being an excellent outdoor training programme for weight loss.

Stand up Paddling
SUP (abbreviation for Stand up Paddling) developed in the Pacific area, just like its close relative surfing. As opposed to that it calls for a paddle and is practiced standing on the board all the time. Since it is quieter than surfing it does not need waves but also works in calm waters.
Zoggler Stausee, the lake on whose shores Life Balance Hotel Arosea is set, is perfect for SUP. You can also practice it on lake S. Giustina which is only 40 km from the hotel.
