Val Gardena

The Val Gardena valley in the heart of the Dolomites is a year-round centre for alpine sports and woodcarving

Active holidaymakers get their money's worth in the Val Gardena, also called Gherdëina or Grödner Tal: Hiking paths run through the heart of the Dolomites, lifts take you to lofty heights, guided hikes show the beauty of the Puez-Odle Nature Park, and in winter you can explore the four Dolomite passes on skis by following the Sella Ronda.

The Val Gardena, a Ladin-speaking area, is not only famous for its alpine sports, but also for its woodcarvings. In the individual villages you will find carving workshops and artists who exhibit their work or sell true artworks made of wood, while Santa Cristina displays the world's largest hand-carved nativity scene, which is open to the public all year round.
