The Val Gardena is an approx. 25 km long tributary valley of the Valle d’Isarco and is located in the north west of the South Tyrolean Dolomites. The valley stretches until the Sella- and Gardena mountain passes. The Ladin hospitality and big varied holiday offers make the Val Gardena a very popular destination for alpinists in summer. The Dolomites are tempting with their unique natural landscape, clear mountain lakes and high mountain tops.
Brown, red, orange – the colours of autumn can be found in the larch forests in the Val Gardena. While the cold season already comes to the saddles of the Dolomites, the last mountain hikes can be done on the sunny hillsides of Rasciesa, Seceda and Alpe di Siusi. Down in the valley the Törggelen starts. With sweet chestnuts, fresh new wine and hefty Tyrolean food the harvest season is celebrated!
The Val Gardena is a real paradise for all winter sports enthusiasts. Nearly 200 kilometres of pistes, 42 kilometres of cross country ski tracks and plenty of destinations for snow shoe hikes and ski tours make Val Gardena a highlight. The valley is also connected to the Dolomiti Superski, with its more than 1,200 km of pistes and to the Sellaronda. A splendid paradise for winter sports fans!
Until Easter skiing is possible in the Val Gardena. While the skiing areas operate until Easter the temperatures become milder and milder in the valley. Nature wakes up on the sunny hillsides of Laion, in the Vallunga the crocuses start to bloom. And at the end of May the funicular from Ortisei to the Alpe di Siusi already starts the summer operation.
