What to do in Val Gardena

Alpine Fairytale Val Gardena leads you directly from the regional capital Bolzano to the Dolomites. While the Seceda and Rasciesa form the Northern hill of the valley, Alpe di Siusi forms the Southern edge. Because it is the most populous town in the valley, Ortisei has much to offer at its 1230 m. In both Summer and Winter there is lots of things to do. Whether it is hiking or shopping that you love, there is something for anyone in our town!



Winter Just like in summer, Val Gardena is also a lovely place to visit during the winter. All the facilities transform into vehicles that connect you to the biggest ski carousel in the world. Over 1220 km of slopes keep you entertained during your skiing and snowboarding holidays in Val Gardena. Because we love to collaborate with our neighboring valleys, we have been continuously working on connecting our skiing resorts for you to enjoy the unique Sella Ronda – a journey which you will never forget. Still curious? See who is enjoying themselves right now on the live cam.

There is much to do in summer in the Dolomites. Rock climbing, mountain biking or simply exploring the hidden gems in the mountainst are all enjoyable on a warm day. Clear skies and low rainfall make your holidays in Ortisei unique. From La Rondula, the nearby Rasciesa and Seceda cable cars directly take you from the center of the town to relaxing forests. In these, squirrels, deers and rabbits all welcome you to this unique fairytale. On the opposite hill of the valley you can visit the biggest high altitute meadow Europe’s, the Alpe di Siusi. Again, there is a quick cable car which directly brings you to the top if you prefer not to hike. Take your family and spend an afternoon of relaxation under the warm Italian sun.
