"DOLOMITTEN SMITTEN!" Top 5 Page for this destination Selva di Val Gardena by sandysmith

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

Selva in the Val Gardena is a great centre for all levels of hiking and mountaineering and experts can tackle the via ferata (iron ladders). The valley is flanked by mountains on either side and at the head is the wonderful Sella Group.

Enjoyed 2 wonderful weeks in the summer with so many different hiking options to enjoy and the cable-car transport for a helping hand. I just love being in these mountains with their jagged peaks and could easily return to do different hikes.

I was so smitten with the beautiful Dolomite mountains here that we returned for a winter holiday....I love to see the same places in different seasons.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:stunning scenery summer or winter
  • Cons:two weeks is not enough

    As you indicate, what's not to like about the Dolomites! Wonderful seeing Pass Pordoi with no snow, so different to my recent trip!
