At the head of the Valgardena valley, there is the municipality of Selva Gardena, located at 1,563 m asl. Extending at the foot of the impressive Sella alpenstock, the scenery in which the village is embedded is fabulous and ideal for various outdoor sports. Located between the Sassolungo, Gruppo del Puez and Sella mountain ranges, Selva Gardena is a popular place both in summer and winter.
Also the famous ski circuit round the Sella alpenstock, that is to say the Sellaronda, runs past Selva Gardena. In summer, the tour round the Sella alpenstock can be cycles, crossing four fantastic mountain passes. Other sports facilities such as the Pranives ice stadium, the golf course, horse riding schools, tennis and squash courts and a skate track complete the offer regarding leisure time activities in Selva di Val Gardena.
Starting from Selva Gardena you can reach the neighbouring Dolomite valleys of Val Badia and Val di Fassa (Province of Trento) via the Passo di Gardena and Passo Sella mountain passes.
Our tip: a visit of the S. Silvestro chapel at the entrance of the Vallunga. In the course of restoration works in 1993, frescoes that are more than 300 years old have been exposed, illustrating the suffering of Jesus.
