Running promotes concentration, health, and, as far as we are concerned, wisdom. Running is all about ourselves and overcoming that bantering force that keeps us from putting on our shoes and getting out there. Even though we know how good we feel after a run. During your holiday in San Genesio/Jenesien in South Tyrol, we will make life easier for you. After all, who wouldn’t want to get out and go with so many hours of sunshine and such a wonderful panorama? Once you have experienced the healing powers of the forest during forest bathing, it is even easier to run free. During your holiday in Bolzano/Bozen, you can start directly from your Hotel Saltus and boost your immune system, while you run across Europe’s largest larch meadow, along the magnificent pulpit of the Salto/Salten and through the forest landscape around San Genesio/Jenesien – with a view of the horizon, of the jagged mountain peaks of the Dolomites, which shine like uncut jewels in the early morning sun. Of course, all the hiking trails around our Hotel Saltus are also suitable for jogging – or trail running, as the pros call it.
Running is a philosophy,
a thrill, and boundless freedom.
Either way, the first step is getting started. Then everything will work out by itself and you’ll be running across the blooming Alpine meadows at 1,100 metres above sea level, an altitude that has been proven to promote your health. The oxygen supply to your body is optimised by the increase in the preliminary stage of young blood cells. At the same time, your stay at this altitude acts like a fountain of youth for your entire body. It reduces your cardiovascular and blood pressure and makes your pulse behaviour more efficient, improves the blood sugar level and blood lipid metabolism, and even helps you lose weight in a healthy way. In addition, there are many positive neuropsychological effects. Our altitude promotes a positive attitude towards life, improves reaction time, promotes sleep and sleep quality, and much more.
The AMAS 2000 altitude study has proven that your stay in our mountains has a health-promoting effect on your entire body. No wonder – here at 1,100 metres, the air is so clear and fresh every breath is enjoyable. Whether you walk through San Genesio/Jenesien and the region around Bolzano/Bozen, hike through it, or just take a leisurely stroll, you are doing something for your health with every step you take.
