Selva

For lovers of walking amidst the dramatic scenery of the Dolomites

At the head of the splendid Gardena valley, Selva is located beneath the jagged peaks of this most spectacular part of the Dolomites, a particularly beautiful Alpine mountain chain in the Süd Tyrol region of northern of Italy.

Selva di Val Gardena (to give it its full name in Italian) is also known as Wolkenstein in Gröden in German or simply Selva in the popular local Ladin language, with all three linguistic cultures intermingling to create a fascinating fusion of human life.

There is a range of activities for guests to Selva, especially for walkers who take gentle rambles along lush river valleys as well as more invigorating high altitude ridge treks accessed by an extensive lift system.

Activity Information

Things to do in and around Selva

  • Bolzano or Brixen by bus, takes 1½ hrs but it’s worth it
  • Visit nearby Ortisei for shops, museums, churches
