The resort of Selva Gardena is set amongst truly spectacular Italian Dolomite scenery. The village has traditional Tirolean-style arhictecture and charm due to the fact that this area was for a long time part of Austria. A relaxed and low key resort, it is perfect for families and groups looking for an authentic mountain ski holiday.
Selva enjoys a breathtaking location beneath the dramatic walls of Sassolungo, the peak that sits immediately above the slopes of Ciampinoiand the Gruppo del Sella. This fortress like jagged rock massif that measures 6km wide lies at the centre of the famous Sella Ronda, a 40km circuit of pistes, lifts and resorts that circumnavigate this natural behemoth.
The ski slopes offer some of the best views of mountain scenery you will find anywhere in the world, with particular mention for the decent from Dantercëpies and Alpe di Siusi. Selva's own ski slopes spread out on both sides of the valley, with the lower pistes surrounded by woods and above open Alpine runs
