Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Immerse yourself into the calming surroundings of the Campolongo pass where you'll find the Hotel Grifone. The beautifully designed hotel sits between Arabba and Corvara, surrounded by the spectacular Dolomite mountains. Guests staying here can be sure of a great holiday, taking advantage of the spacious rooms - they're all equipped with a balcony to take in the stunning surroundings.

After filling up each morning at breakfast, early birds who want to make the most of every second on the mountain can be on the hotel's free shuttle bus from 8.30am. You'll be taken you directly to the Mont Cherz lift which leads straight onto the Sella Ronda circuit. For those who want a lie-in, don't worry, the bus runs continually all day so no rush to get out of a nice cosy bed.

If you fancy an afternoon off from skiing, we highly recommend the hotel's wellness centre. Take a dip in the pool, close your eyes and relax in the steam room or turn up the heat in the sauna at no extra cost. If you do fancy splashing out, massages and beauty treatments are available for a local charge.

The hotel's piano bar really brings the whole place to life both before and after a delicious four-course evening meal. Enjoy a tipple next to the warmth of the open log fire, sit back and chat about the day's events in the comfy leather chairs or join in with the evening entertainment.

Transfer time: approx. 3 hours from Innsbruck airport.

Ski Holidays in Arabba

Of the resorts that make up the celebrated Sellaronda circuit, Arabba has some of the most interesting slopes, and is a real skiers’ holiday base. It boasts excellent, challenging pistes, and the stunning slopes of the mighty Marmolada glacier are within easy reach. The highly recommended Hidden Valley is close by too. Part of the spectacular Dolomiti Superski area, the modern lift system ensures Arabba links easily to the Sella Ronda, with Canazei in the Val di Fassa to the West, and Corvara in the sunny Alta Badia ski area to the North. This compact, friendly village has a natural ice skating rink and a small selection of shops, bars, restaurants and pizzerias. Après-ski is low key and relaxed, the skiing anything but! The fast 'Ornella' run down to Pescoi is one of the big thrills for local skiers – and one of the biggest local challenges.
