DOLOMITES Val Gardena: the Dolomites’ valley par excellence

The Dolomites’ valley par excellence offers an incomparable mountain experience throughout the year. Surrounded by the untouched Puez Odle Nature Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a stay in Val Gardena will be something you will cherish forever. Discover a new facet of the valley, something which doesn’t consist in skiing every day. A unique panorama featuring the most beautiful peaks of the South Tyrolean Dolomites and Val Gardena’s landmark, the Sassolungo, make holidays in the sun-kissed valley unique.

Guests can make the most of 300 days of sun a year as well as a spectacular 360 degree mountain view and a mixture of traditional customs and festivities paired with enjoyable and sporty outdoor activities set against an alpine backdrop. The valley is considered to be one of the most traditional mountain regions in the world, but also wins tourists over due to its Ladin population: a modern folk, engaged in sports and with a gift for languages, as they speak a good four of them! The uniqueness of Val Gardena is therefore characterised by a mixture of existing legends but also by a variety of activities and innovations.

 

Sustainable Development

With the recognition of the Dolomites as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the need also arose to protect this wonderful mountain area. Here are some simple tips to contribute to the sustainable development of the area:

  • avoid the car and use public transport
  • try to save water and electricity
  • do not leave garbage around and separate it
  • avoid unnecessary packaging

Even small gestures can make a big difference!
