Camping Seiser Alm offers great comfort in beautiful surroundings just next to a trekking paradise, the Dolomites!
We rarely stay at the big camping sites praised with multiple stars. If we decide to stay at a camping site, then we normally go after the more simple and smaller ones. They typically have less facilities but often times a vibe that fits our preference. While the Camping Seiser Alm is certainly a big site then it’s location is ideal for trekking the Dolomites!
Booking can be done through below link. While camping can also be done by tent, they also provide houses. Bolzano airport is only 30 km away. For a bigger airport you have Innsbruck (Austria).
If you are into wild camping then you will find it difficult to find an overnight place as all areas we came across were restricted against overnight stays (and controls were allegedly carried out). For that reason we decided to stay at this camping site and coming from more primitive camping or wild camping, we almost felt like being on a spa resort!
The camping site also has a quite big pool and a good little grocery shop from where you also can pick up freshly baked bread in the morning.
Seiser Alm camping is located in the beautiful province of South Tyrol. You are in walking distance (1.5 km) to the closest small town nearby, San Costantino West of the camping site. To the East you got the bigger town, Siusi Seis, which can easily be reached by public bus (5 km). It is also from here you take the ski lift up on the Compaccio which together with a range of other mountains make up the Alpe di Suisi.
The ski lift tour up to the plateau where trekking routes runs from is in itself a great experience. There is a range of trekking routes to pick from. The trek we picked were well marked and followed good paths. We trekked for about 4 hours up and probably 3 hours down with plenty of height meters covered. The turning point was at a nice little café where you could have or eat your own lunch, get some beverage and a snack. The view from here was great in May with the bright clear air and not too warm trekking either.

This was the spot we got for our van – first class view.
