Val di Pejo

Pejo, nature and wellness in the Alpine setting of Trentino Pejo is the oldest tourist resort in Val di Sole, surrounded by some of the highest peaks in Trentino. Immersed in the Stelvio National Park, it is famous for its thermal waters, which have been renowned since 1650. The name actually refers to two different locations: the village, at an altitude of almost 1,600 m above sea level, and, about 1 kilometre away, the hamlet of Pejo Fonti, at almost 1400 m, where the renowned Pejo Thermal Baths are located. Actually, make that three, including the Pejo 3,000 m ski area, a paradise for skiers. Thermal waters, yoga and meditation Known for centuries for its healing properties, the Terme di Pejo, more than a treatment centre, is a place of peace and recollection, where one can rediscover a harmonious balance between mind and body, including through meditation, dynamic yoga and breathing exercises. The courses and therapies based on its waters, which come from no less than three springs—Antica Fonte, Nuova Fonte and Fonte Alpina—are designed to combine physical and mental wellbeing through pleasant sensory and emotional involvement. The wellness area is fitted out with warm and elegant materials and divided into two zones: the hot area, with Finnish sauna, biosauna, Roman bath and steam bath; and the wet area, where you will find whirlpools, neck-massage waterfall, Kneipp path, ice waterfall, sensory and Scottish showers. There are also salt rooms, chromotherapy rooms, a solarium and a fitness area, all interconnecting to allow you to take a treatment and relaxation path designed for every need. The world's first plastic free ski area 20 kilometres of slopes and 7 lifts, the Pejo 3,000 ski area, with its star attraction, its cable car, which reaches an altitude of 3000 metres, has everything you need for fun in the snow, also for families: slopes for adults and children, snow parks, ski schools, fun slopes and a family park dedicated to the little ones, in a setting of snow-covered peaks and centuries-old forests. As of 2019, Pejo 3,000 has also become the first plastic-free ski area in the world. The project, shared by the tourist operators of the area, who have abandoned plastic plates, glasses and bottles, is the first step on a path that aims to preserve the natural mountain heritage and promote eco-sustainable tourism with an accent on fun. Hikes for all tastes Are you a slow walker or an extreme hiker? It doesn’t matter either way: you will be spoilt for choice in the Pejo Valley, with trekking routes suitable for every level of difficulty. If you enjoy demanding and strenuous climbs, you will find something to your liking by tackling the ascent to Rifugio Vioz or Rifugio Mantova; while for the less competitively inclined, there are simpler but no less enchanting itineraries, such as the Cevedale lakes tour or the trails to Lago di Covel or Lago di Pian Palù. And if you prefer to travel by mountain bike, there are plenty of options: among them is the impressive Great War tour, following the sites and historical evidence of the First World War. A museum as big as a valley The many cultural, historical and architectural itineraries have led to the entire Val di Pejo being designated as the Eco-museum of the Val di Peio Piccolo Mondo Alpino, an immense area that can be visited, which coincides with the extension of the valley and aims to promote local culture and community, the conservation of knowledge and historical memory. The Ecomuseum focuses on values such as the spiritual and the sacred, heritages such as water and minerals, traditions such as wood, bread, cheese, linen and wool; and historical events such as the Great War. It is housed in the former primary school in Celentino, a hamlet of Pejo and a venue for meetings, workshops and exhibitions.
