Santa Cristina

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, S. 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

Santa Christina

The small village with the old centre and the typical mountain-farms appears very romantic and particular. The village lies in the middle of Val Gardena and is the ideal starting point for skiers and excursionists, who can walk in the middle of nature, while admiring the manifold
Alpine flora, surrounded by the beautiful Dolomite mountains. An experience you will never forget. Thanks to its isolation in the past, the valley has developed an own tradition and culture that is still alive. S. Cristina (1.428 m) is the ideal place for the mountain-friend, who likes to hike, for the nature-lover, who cares about health and is looking for silence and rest and for the one, who loves to spend an amusing ski-vacation in a great atmosphere.

Walks in winter

Even in winter, all of Val Gardena is suitable for walking – the snowcovered Rasciesa, a walk to Plesdinaz offering panoramic views, or an excursion to the dreamy Vallunga: all kinds of walking enthusiasts will feel at home in Val Gardena in wintertime.

TIP: All winter walks in Val Gardena as well as opportunities for snowshoeing with detailed descriptions are contained in the new Tabacco map: cross-country runs, winter walks, toboggan runs and snowshoeing paths on a scale of 1:25.000.

The following lifts can be used by walkers in winter:

• Piz Sella Cableway;
• Chairlifts Rasciesa, Monte Pana, Cir and Piz Setëur;
• Gondolas Alpe di Siusi, Seceda, Col Raiser,
Saslong, Ciampinoi and Dantercëppies;
• Underground funicular Val Gardena Ronda Express

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…
