After spending a week in Trentino going via Ferrata, canyoning, exploring Trento, and hiking in the Dolomites (plus more hiking, and even more hiking!), an afternoon at QC Terme Dolomiti wellness center was just what I needed!

Powered by the natural spring Alloch, the only sulfurous spring in the Trentino region, the spa is an oasis for the senses. From the moment you walk into the spacious lobby, a serenity washes over you as you are greeted by the friendly staff and soothing aromas.

Once you change into your bathing suit, the most difficult choice you face while being here is choosing which room experience to start with.

Our group spent the afternoon experiencing as many of the 40+ practices available as we could. From whirlpools to waterfalls, Japanese baths, salt rooms, relaxation areas, and a diverse range of saunas and steam baths, every experience took off another layer of stress and drove us into a deeper state of bliss.

As you walk through the complex, it's clear that the staff is meticulous about ensuring every detail is just perfect. In fact, even the grass was chosen (and imported!) for being the best grass for walking barefoot on — something your feet appreciate more than you would think!

I've never been to a spa that impressed me so much, and definitely not one I would consider a tourist attraction all on its own, but QC Terme is no ordinary wellness center.

I raved about my time here so much once I got home, that my parents felt compelled to adjust the itinerary for their upcoming trip to Trentino and include a day at QC Terme on their last day in the region. They loved it as much as I did, and I don't think I've ever seen them come home so relaxed after driving around Europe for two weeks!

Here's what you need to know about visiting QC Terme Dolomiti during your vacation in Trentino.

What To Expect

The ground floor is packed with innovative variations of baths, steam rooms, cold rooms, and saunas. Every room is so incredibly different, creative, and interesting.

There are tubs that cater to different temperatures of water, that offer music therapy, ‘starlit' ceilings and many other features. Other rooms are more active and have jets to help stimulate microcirculation.

Are your feet sore from hiking? Try a Kneipp foot bath. Is your whole body sore? Try a salt room or a Vichy shower. Or simply make your way through every room on the ground floor. You'll feel like you just finished a one-week beach vacation.

Once you step outside, the views take your breath away. It's easy to spend a day in this heavenly setting!

The second floor has a slew of themed relaxation rooms, one better than the next, and each with a view of the Dolomites. Two of my favorite rooms had hanging beds or pods. Floating in the air on a comfortable pillow while enjoying a spectacular view just hit the relaxation spot.

I also loved the red sauna room that had the most amazing full-length pillows I've ever sat on! Our group spent a lot of time hanging out in silence and enjoying the serenity. We then almost fell asleep hanging out on waterbeds in a dark room with a screen on the ceiling playing nature videos. Pure bliss.

The pool starts indoors and continues outside, which is something that appeals to my inner architect. If I had a house with a pool, this is exactly how the pool would look like! #Goals

The outdoor spaces allow you to completely immerse yourself in nature and enjoy the preventative health benefits of “forest bathing” while admiring the beauty of the Fassa Valley.

My biggest surprise was a room next to the pool exit. The pool was still when we entered, and we pressed the activation button expecting water jets, only to find ourselves in a torrential downpour!

It was shocking, but also surprisingly pleasant and revitalizing. I found myself laughing hysterically at the mix of emotions I was feeling.

After exhausting all the rooms on the first two floors, we headed outside to enjoy the outdoor facilities.

The outdoor sauna was another treat. If you're a people watcher like I am, you'll love this one.

Trentodoc Tasting

As if our time at the spa wasn't pampering enough, we were then treated to an exclusive Trentodoc experience in one of the instagrammable whirlpools. We were able to try four various Trentodoc wines, each with their own distinctive taste (loved the Rosé one!) and paired with its complementary locally-sourced appetizer. It was divine.

Trentodoc is a sparkling wine made only with Trentino grapes, and it was one I got very familiar with during my week in Trento. Winemaking in Trentino is documented as far back as 3000 BC, which is very impressive.

A distinctive element of Trentodoc sparkling wines is the “classic method” of production. This includes a base wine, a secondary bottle fermentation (where the bubbles form), riddling (where residual particles are removed), and disgorgement. It takes about 15 to 36 months or more to make a Trentodoc!

There are 52 Trentodoc wine cellars in Trentino – here's a list if you want to visit one during your vacation. Cantina Villa Corniole sells tours online of their winery, and a Trentodoc tasting is included in their gold and premium packages.

QC Terme provides towels, robes, slippers and any hair and body care products you would need. You'll also have access to a locker for the duration of your stay.

You may want to bring a waterproof adventure camera (like a GoPro) if you want to take pictures. You'll want to stash away all other electronics considering how much water is around.

Getting There

QC Terme is located in Pozza di Fassa. The best way to get there is by car – you can park right in front of the spa.

Locations & Map

Aside from the Val di Fassa location, QC Terme Spas and Resorts have six other centers across Italy, and one in Chamonix Mont Blanc, France. In Italy, you can find one in Milan, Rome, Bormio, Pré Saint Didier, San Pellegrino, and Torino.

If you're vacationing in Italy, I definitely recommend carving at least half a day out to rejuvenate and relax before heading back home. I guarantee you won't regret it!

Nearby Accommodation

We stayed at Agritur El Mas, a farmhouse inn located in Moena. A quick 15-minute drive away, this was the perfect location as a base while exploring Val di Fassa. Our dinner was locally-sourced and as-organic-as-it-gets since all the produce and animals are grown on the farm.

Sleeping at a farmhouse surrounded by the Dolomites is very serene, and a perfect complement to a day spent at QC Terme. Read more about my experience of staying at Agritur El Mas.
