Say goodbye to your desk! Now it is time to enjoy. On your 1.5 hour hike from the hideaway hotel SILENA up to the Fane Alm at 390 meters above sea level, you will get closer to the roots. With every step up the hillside, you feel the balance of nature. Every meter above sea level gives you wings to your soul. The excursion from Vals to the loveliest mountain village in South Tyrol, with its little chapel and the traditional buildings, is delightful at any season of the year. There is always something new to discover whether you are on a mountain bike, snowshoes or take a sled with you.
We appreciate and we honor the real thing, authenticity. This is the source of our energy. And with values which last for a lifetime. Fane Alm at 1,739 m above sea level is just one of such gems that we love so much. We love to go walking here, far away from the hustle and bustle. We love to enjoy the gifts of nature such as the spectacles of the sunrise or the full moon.
If you wish, you can also during your hiking vacation in South Tyrol, drive by car for about 10 minutes away from the Fane Alm and then from there start your hiking tour through the Gitschberg-Jochtal mountain valley. If you are fit and foot-sure then we suggest a full-day tour on the Wilde Kreuzspitze (3,134 m), the main summit of the Pfunderer Mountain range. After an ascent of about four hours (walking time) you can enjoy the wonderful views over the Zillertal Alps and the Wilden See Lake. A hike of about three hours brings you back down again to the carpark.
In the winter you can discover the other side of the Fane Alm above Vals. Farms are more or less asleep and the animals have all been brought down to the valley for the winter, but there are still two mountain lodges which stay open and welcome you with a crackling open fire, tea and coffee. A chance to be a child again with red cheeks from the wind in your face – feel it when you take your sledge up the mountain with you and then toboggan down the Fane Alm to the valley in Vals.
Everything was lovely, the welcome, daily sweets at 3pm, yummy multi-course dinner every evening, huge breakfast buffet. The staff are super-friendly and genuinely so, the standard room I was in was spacious, convenient and had lots of nice details to it (tea kettle, knapsack for hiking, ...). My floor has a popcorn machine, the one above an honesty bar. Great also that you can attend free yoga classed and accompanied hikes.
Accommodation and personal were excellent. Great food. Wonderful and clean rooms. Our company enjoyed it very much. Highly recommended. Thank you SILENA the Souful hotel!!!

In the Silena you will find spacious rooms, friendly staff, delicious food, the best breakfast ever, fully equipped spa, everything on the ski slopes just 2 minutes walks from the ski cabins. Moreover you are only 30 min drive from some stunning little towns like Bressanone, Brunico, Vipiteno or Bolzano.
We stayed at the Silena for our honeymoon and it was absolutely excellent!! There's absolutely nothing that we could fault, from the beautiful location, excellent facilities, gorgeous food to the wonderful family who run the hotel, led by Ida and Sepp. The staff at the hotel were so accomodating and no request was too much for them. The hotel facilities were excellent, and were perfect for a nice relaxing break.
