Trip Details: Sölden is located in Ötztal, Austria (in Tirol), one of the hot spots of the Alps with three peaks over 10,000 ft., access to two glaciers, great entertainment, restaurants, and incredible après ski and nightlife! The town of Sölden is located in the heart of this impressive mountain landscape. It is also the place for World Cup skiing and snowboarding in Tirol, and offers a huge range of winter sports – the US Ski Team has chosen Sölden as their official European training base!
The Sölden-Hochsölden-Gaislachkogl sector of the Ötztal Arena Ski Area has over 60+ miles of trails connected by a number of high-capacity lifts and long runs, the greatest of which descends for 6 miles over a 5,500 ft. vertical. This area is now even bigger thanks to the lift link to the glaciers meaning that the 30 plus lifts, many of them state-of-the-art gondolas and chairs, link up to around 90 miles of runs, all accessible with the Ötztal Superskipass. Off the mountain there are plenty of activities for your enjoyment such as cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, ice skating, curling, toboggan runs, sleigh rides, and a thermal spa. For additional activities you can take a shuttle from Sölden to the train station about 20 miles away and take the train west to St. Anton-Zurich or east to Innsbruck-Vienna.
Sölden is famous for its great après-ski scene. At the end of the day the entire village turns into a party location where those in search of fun and entertainment meet in one of the numerous open air après ski bars along Sölden’s main road. When the day comes to a close everyone heads for the ultimate restaurants, pubs, and clubs across the village. Nightlife at its finest!
Lodging is at Hotel Tyrolerhof**** located in the center of Sölden, only 100 yards from the Giggijoch gondola. In the Tyrolerhof, traditional and modern combine to create a wonderful atmosphere. The modern rooms all feature cable TV, safe, Wi-Fi, bathroom and more. The hotel features an indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, steam bath, spa treatments, and fitness center. The on-site restaurant offers Tyrolean Cuisine and international dishes, and guests can enjoy après ski around the Grizzly bar’s crackling fire.
After skiing, those adding the trip extension will travel to Majorca, a place to disconnect and truly relax. Puro Palma Hotel**** is a boutique design hotel with connected beach club and restaurant converted from a XVII century palace in Palma de Majorca’s old quarter (La Lonja district).
