During winter a fairy-tale scenery in white.
In the summer, a unique variety of nature's beauty.

In every season, the world of the Dolomites demonstrates its particular charm in an impressive beauty. The towns of Ortisei, Santa Cristina and Selva Gardena (in all only 6 miles distance) not only offer beautiful nature, but also a wide variety of art and culture. Ortisei 1236 m, S. Cristina 1428 m and Selva Gardena 1563 m, is situated at a height of 1200 to 1700 meters above sea level. The alpine meadows and ski pistes rise up to 2518 m and the mountain peaks up to 3181 m.

Ortisei (1.236 m)
Ortisei is the hub of activity in Val Gardena and an ideal location for lively and varied holidays with full entertainment value. It combines magnificent scenery with fine sports amenities, culinary delights with cultural highlights, and so many things to do that a holiday always seems too short. Direct connections to Seceda, Alpe di Siusi, Rasciesa and the skiing circuit Sella Ronda.
In the surroundings of Ortisei, there are three small villages: Bulla, (1.481m, 5 km from Ortisei on the road to Castelrotto) a unique small spot earth, which is embedded in a dreamed landscape, San Giacomo (1.433 m) the small idyllic mountain village on the sun side above Ortisei, with wonderful view to the Sassolungo, and Roncadizza (1 km from Ortisei) at the valley entrance.

The altitude of 1,236 m above sea level makes of Ortisei the ideal place for winter and summer holidays. This town, with its old and solid mercantile tradition and rich history, has a particular urban plan that blends harmoniously with the landscape. The centre and its pedestrian only area are a wonderful meeting place but are also ideal for shopping. From here one may easily wander off into the woods in search of some old farm. The Seceda and the Alpe di Siusi can be reached by comfortable lifts.

Snowboarding on a white gold.
Design long curves on the slopes, jump, kick up the powdered snow, feel the snow crystals on your skin. The Dolomites in front of you. The white slope beneath your board. Laugh and have fun. Enjoy life with the crew. Snowboarding in the Dolomites means redefining the mountains, it means live piste experiences with a new dimension.

The culinary pleasure of Ortisei and Val Gardena are many and varied. Above all they are as international as the visitors to the valley, combining the finesse of Italian cuisine with traditional fare an local dishes. There is something for everyone to enjoy. Obviously you shouldn’t leave the
valley without having tried the Knödel, the Kaiserschmarren and the Appelstrudel. That is part of a holiday in Val Gardena! Simply let you spoil by our local cuisine…
