Explore the incredible nature at the crown of Val Gardena
If you are thinking about the Italian Dolomites, you are probably already imagining yourself skiing down the snowy mountains, but think again. The scenic region is packed with amazing nature sights that are just as beautiful in the summer months as in the skiing season – if not more. There are multiple ways to experience Val Gardena outside the winter months. If you like mountain biking, there are hundreds of different bike routes to choose from. Actually, Val Gardena is the only “Approved Bike Area” in South Tyrol, guaranteeing active mountain-bike holidays.
Another way of experiencing Val Gardena is simply walking, but it can be tricky to know exactly where to start and where to go after you’ve put on your best hiking boots.
Curona de Gherdëina is a unique guided trekking tour on the fascinating mountain crown of Val Gardena on over 2.000 height meters. The 60 kilometers long tour goes from the Natural Park Puez-Odle in the northeast (Unesco World Heritage), to the Sella plateau in the southeast and the Sassolungo mountain group in the south of the valley. The Dolomites show its particular beauty; on every part of the trekking, the “pale mountains” seem to take different shapes. Relaxing opportunities are provided in the mountain huts in which you can enjoy typical dishes and live unforgettable sunrises and sunsets.
