Make sure you’re there when crowds of excited children, high-spirited dancers and happy, smiling faces come to the Cavallino Bianco!

Where the slopes never end

Family fun in the world’s largest ski circus

Dolomiti Superski: the world’s largest and also probably one of the most delightful ski circuses. Countless slopes meander between the glistening peaks. The sun shines and warms cold noses, music sounds from the huts and you are right in the thick of it!

The snow paradise has twelve ski areas, 450 lifts and an impressive 1,200 kilometres of pistes, reached in just a few ski lengths. There is an amazing variety of different descents for people of all ages and skill levels. The Dolomiti Superski area is a winter dream come true – also for freestylers, cross-country skiers and heliskiers!

“BelLino” children’s cosmetics

100% organic, 100% protection

Babies and children have particularly sensitive skin. Our BelLino care line is designed to protect the sensitive hydro-lipid mantle and nourishes the skin in a natural way. Mild ingredients such as marigold, sea buckthorn and olive oil guarantee maximum effectiveness and tolerability. All BelLino products are dermatologically tested and protect and moisturise children's delicate skin.

Baby pool

Splash around safely

Small children love splashing around in warm water. So that they have the chance to enjoy the Cavallino water world like the bigger kids, we have created a special baby area with lots of colourful cartoon characters. Lean back and relax while your little explorers have fun. The shallow pool depth ensures maximum safety!

Bike school

Little heroes on wheels

Cycling in the sunshine was so lovely as a child. Feet firmly on the pedals, eyes straight ahead and eagerly awaiting the final destination. In the countryside surrounding the Cavallino Bianco, a bike tour is twice as much fun for little ones. The scenery is so beautiful you won’t even notice the effort.

For all children from the age of four who like riding in a group or improving their technique, the MTB School Ortisei has something special on offer: summer MTB tours and technique courses in the Skills Park! Professional guides get young cyclists fit for cycling. When they take part in their grand finale race, parents will burst with pride at their progress. Lino's tip: hire the necessary equipment from the hotel.

Healthy with Geoway

Slimming and anti-stress

The SUN 400XL is a true all-rounder. It combines warm infrared rays and gentle movement and delivers a lasting regenerating effect on body and mind. Toxic substances are excreted through perspiration and vitamin D production is stimulated.

Thanks to the heat, training in the integrated reclining ergometer is particularly gentle and effective. Plus, the skin is visibly tightened, which then makes it more receptive to cures and treatments.
Try out this exceptional wellness device – you can see and feel the difference!

Kids & Junior

We don't want to leave anymore!

Do you remember when you were a child how you would be so completely drawn into a game, you entered another world and forgot everything around you? At Cavallino Bianco, we want to give your children precious moments of pure happiness just like these. For little superheroes aged between three and a half to eleven years old, we’ve created a proper play and fun paradise. A place they will never want to leave.

Between ball cannons in the Pirate Land, mini-sports arena, Lego building site and giant dolls house, every moment turns into an adventure. We have a dedicated team of entertainers with games, sports and handicrafts every day. Lino the mascot also pops by every now and again and makes the kids laugh.
Young nature detectives can head off outdoors and discover what the forest, river and farm dwellers have in store for them.

10 useful tips for the adaptation of teenagers

The scent of the Alpe di Siusi…

The fun of barbecues and alpine huts

On sunny summer afternoons, we all hike up to the Cavallino hut together. Once there, we’re rewarded for the 40-minute walk with a delicious lunch, beautiful views and lots of great games!

Who will be toboggan king?

Thrilling tobogganing fun in the mountains

Even little kids love sledging. So, a day on the toboggan run is a great family experience.

Children's theatre

Light off, excitement on

Small members of the audience from three and a half years of age are accompanied to the performances by our childminders. Once a week, the children swap places with the artists and slip into amazing costumes and amusing roles themselves. This is when all the hard work of rehearsing for the big performance pays off – thunderous applause. Take the stage!

Family lagoon

Family ahoy!

Baby pool, slide and lounge – the fun lagoon in the family hotel Cavallino Bianco leaves nothing to be desired. Children large and small can race down the three-lane slide together.
