Glacier Hotel Grawand (Italy)

Glacier Hotel Grawand Italy

Elevation: 10,538 feet
Vertical drop: 4,091 feet

Accessible only by a cable car, this hotel — the highest in Europe — is surrounded by other 9,000-plus-feet peaks in the Ötztal Alps. Guests can ski directly out the front door and for nearly five miles into the valley before taking the first lift. The solitude of this extraordinary place settles in once the final cable car departs to the valley floor in late afternoon. In addition to the stunning vistas, those staying at the hotel are treated to breakfast and a four-course dinner in the facility’s Panorama Restaurant.
