Hanging with Messner at Forestis
Reinhold Messner—Italian mountaineer, explorer, and author from South Tyrol—will relive his adventures at the place he calls the origin: FORESTIS. On October 8, Messner returns to the five-star conceptual retreat for a unique event surrounded by nature.
Facing the remarkable Dolomites, Reinhold shares precious memories from his mountain experience in the Villnöss Valley around the FORESTIS campfire.
"I see the mountains as they were climbed. To me, that belongs to the origin; it is the origin." Messner said. At FORESTIS, departure is also a grand word for a new beginning, representing a very clear turn towards something new and unique.
The property features 62 luxury suites with panoramic views of the infamous Dolomites Messner conquered. The landscapes of the Dolomites region are rolling with charming views through all four seasons, positioning FORESTIS as an ideal destination to hike through the mountains where Messner climbed every peak, solo or led by hiking guide, Herbert. After a long day on the slopes, the FORESTIS spa invites guests to rejuvenate through signature treatments, such as the mountain pine body scrub and healing wood massage, to round out the experience of time, nature, and self in a truly unique place.
Limited rooms are still available at FORESTIS to experience an evening with Messner and can be booked through the website.
