Fancy winning a holiday to South Tyrol in the Italian Dolomites? South Tyrol has a unique landscape and provides a stunning setting for a range of outdoor activities. It also boasts an average of 300 days of sunshine a year so it’s the perfect short-haul destination from the UK to enjoy an active break whilst soaking up the sunshine and celebrating the region’s fantastic food and wine.

For the active, there’s 13,000km of natural hiking trails available ranging from gentle walks to more challenging Alpine hikes and glacier treks. The area has been awarded with the title of UNESCO World Heritage in 2009 joining the likes of Stonehenge and the pyramids of Egypt. They were formed around 90 million years ago and are an impressive attraction to visit.
You can try out cycling, mountain biking, golf and watersports too.
For the less adventurous, the region has a huge range of quality spa experiences, from the traditional to the quirky, all of which combine ancient tradition with modern techniques. 

South Tyrol’s restaurants and bars are bursting with award-winning locally produced wines and world-leading gastronomy. The region boasts an impressive 23 Michelin stars, more than any other Italian province, and visitors to South Tyrol can sample some of the best food Italy has to offer – from local favourite Speck, a dry cured ham, to modern, innovative cuisine. 
Their website can give you information about their beautiful hotels and the amazing food and wines of the region. You will find everything about activities for all ages to do this summer; whether it’s swimming, rope climbing, hiking on the Sassolungo/Langkofel-mountain, or relaxing in a sauna South Tyrol offers opportunities to suit all tastes. You could even wander through the Botanical Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle which was recently voted, ‘one of the most beautiful botanical gardens in the world’.

Whether it’s adventure, gastronomy, culture or relaxation you want from your summer holiday, you’ll find it in the mountains and towns of South Tyrol – and one lucky couple who win a trip to South Tyrol will be able to do just that.
