Experience The Ranch Malibu’s transformational weekly wellness program amidst the majestic mountains in Northern Italy from August 25 to October 5, 2019. Modeled after The Ranch’s results-oriented, signature 7-day stay, which combines an intense fitness regimen – centered on morning mountain hiking – with a highly structured, plant-based nutritional diet, The Ranch Dolomites immerses just 22 guests in the natural splendor of the Italian landscape.
“Having experienced The Ranch Malibu and The Ranch 4.0, I jumped on the opportunity to go abroad with The Ranch on their pop-up program in the Dolomites this past summer. True to form, it was an amazing week! Many of the trails were very challenging, but the beauty of the scenery and the majestic views were worth every step!” – V.O.
Staying at the lovely, boutique Hotel Rosa Alpina, guests spend mornings under the guidance of experienced Ranch staff and highly skilled local hiking guides as they explore the terrain of this UNESCO Natural World Heritage site. Centered in San Cassiano and near Cortina, the hundreds of miles of trails offer spectacular views of the picturesque countryside, emerald-green meadows, waterfalls, Alps and jagged peaks of the Dolomites. Following a well-deserved naptime, afternoons are filled with fitness programming including strength training, yoga and meditation along with daily massages. Many of the activities allow guests to connect with nature’s healing elements, taking place outdoors. Our highly knowledgeable staff tends to your every need and is trained in all aspects of fitness and rehabilitation to support and nurture, while guiding you to achieve personal program goals.
“As my first Ranch experience, the Dolomites set the bar very high. I do not know if there exists more beautiful scenery. The hikes were magnificent, the hotel was amazing and the staff was super accommodating. Everything about this experience was of the highest quality!” – B.A.
To complement the active schedule, The Ranch culinary team will be joined by Rosa Alpina’s renowned staff to serve a nutritional diet of locally grown plant-based cuisine, inspired by regional Italian flavors.
