Selva di Val Gardena Travel Guide: 55 reviews and 197 photos

This is an example of the landscape in the Dolomites area of northern Italy, bordering on Austria and the Alps. You will find the high green pastures and then the stark and bare mountain tops.

As you drive the area between Bolzano and points north and east from there you will come across dozens of ski lifts dropping into valleys and rising into the sky on the backs of the mountains.

As you go higher, so the valleys lay further below you. Watch out for that first step though. You can just see on the left side of the picture, yet another ski lift, they go over roads, over power lines and even over towns.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful for hiking, riding or just sitting
  • Cons:Seems to be all uphill and curves
  • In a nutshell:You will love it if you are not in a hurry.

    Martin, we just returned from this area of the world! Part of our trip was spent just 30 minutes north of Bolzano and we are in LOVE with the area. We will absolutely be going back. Nice to see we have another thing in common.

    Woah! Just what I was looking for! I don't enjoy skiing very much, so I'll spend some time with Eric. Hope the pools will have warm water. : )

    Never knew the Dolomites looked like this. Imposing. And very funny: calling cold water 'refreshing'. hahaha!
