Overview of Selva Val Gardena

Exuding the charms of the South Tirol, including the isolated Ladin dialect, a ski holiday to Selva di Val Gardena is plentiful in everything you’re looking for from a ski holiday. Sitting at 1565m, the resort elevation is similar to its nearby big-name Austrian neighbours but with a variety of skiing including tree-lined runs, open alpine and of course access to the majestic Sellaronda, it’s much more than meets the eye.

Selva is the largest, most established and well know of the three villages in the Val Gardena valley. It is also linked to by the beautiful and quaint satellite villages of St Cristiana and Ortisei. These villages still offer skiers great access to the Sella Ronda but a more tranquil and relaxed experience compared to the bustle of Selva.
