Seiser Alm isn’t a conventional ski resort but a collection of buildings scattered around the piste. Adler Mountain Lodge, reached by a track or gondola from the valley village of Ortisei, is one of the most remote hotels in the Alps.
Couples or families wanting privacy – you’re unlikely to bump into anyone you know, and celebrities will be left well alone. Foodies will love it too: chef Hannes Pignater uses ingredients sourced from local farms in South Tyrol to create dishes such as omelette with meadow herbs and hay-roasted lamb.
When to go
January or March are best, although this far corner of the Dolomiti Superski area is quiet even in high season.
