Hiking! Leave your everyday thoughts in everyday life, simply walk, enjoy the large and small miracles of nature while breathing fresh mountain air. We think that there is not much that is as relaxing as a nice hike. And your recreational holiday in nature will be absolutely perfect, if you also enjoy the accommodation and the setting. Here are some hotel tips for you. Now, you only have to decide which mountain you want to climb, lace up your hiking boots and off you go.

Picturesque Landscape in South Tyrol

The Ötztal Alps surrounding the glacier of Schnalstal make the hearts of nature lovers beat faster. Particularly in summer, you can enjoy the pristine alpine world of South Tyrol during extensive hikes. The alpine lodge Josephus is located in the middle of nature, surrounded by ample meadows and with a view of the mountains. It is characterized by its lovely details, natural simplicity and a peaceful atmosphere: a cozy and exclusive retreat. And the South Tyrolean cuisine makes things perfect: Josephus knows exactly how to combine rich Tyrolean dishes with Italy’s Mediterranean lightness – and make hungry hikers happy.

Relaxation and exploration in the Black Forest

Hotel Lamm is located in the most densely wooded township of Baden-Württemberg in Germany – the perfect place for adventure and exploration. Here, you are surrounded by idyllic nature and Europe’s most extensive network of hiking trails, waiting to be explored. It’s worth it: the natural region of Baiersbronn has been certified with the quality seal “Wanderbares Deutschland”, and rightly so. The team of the quaint and cozy Hotel Lamm makes sure that you can return to your daily life bursting with energy. The sustainable Selfness Hotel is characterized by harmony and relaxation and provides comfort and culinary delights.

Well-being at Schwarzwald Panorama

The hotel Schwarzwald Panorama is located a little bit further north. It is not only the perfect starting point for explorations of the endless hiking trails of the Black Forest mountains. Moreover, it is a wellness- and health hotel with an integrated selfness center, forming the so-called “Gesundheitsberg” (which can be roughly translated as mountain of health) in Bad Herrenalb together with an adjoining medical center. It offers basically everything that is good for body and mind. Do not miss the reinterpretations of the traditional Black Forest cuisine at the hotel restaurant “La Vie”.

Striking out in a new direction – at the Machu Picchu

To satisfy your wanderlust, we also recommend Peru. Of course, the highly frequented Machu Picchu offers a spectacular hiking experience. But you should definitely also try to go off the beaten track. The Inkaterra hotels near Cusco, Inkaterra La Casona and Inkaterra Machu Picchu, are a perfect starting point. Inkaterra is not only a good choice in terms of accommodation. The hotel group is closely linked with the Inkaterra Asociación (ITA), which is committed to preserving Peru’s biodiversity and cultural heritage. Here, you learn a lot about sustainability and regional culture and nature, for example on rainforest tours guided by experts. The travel report on the German blog travelita is a wonderful source of inspiration, describing an exciting five-day tour through the Andean highlands with their stunning mix of flora, fauna and rich culture.
