Val Gardena is a special treat for cross-country skiers: the Vallunga in Selva Gardena, the Monte Pana in S. Cristina and the Alpe di Siusi offer a unique, fantastic panorama.
The valley, which offers more than 135 km of well-prepared cross-country ski runs in all degrees of difficulty, can be described as the eldorado for cross-country skiers.
Crystal-clear air, in snow covered meadows and forests, the impressive Dolomite mountains: come and discover a little cross-country paradise!
Enjoy nature at your leisure. Plenty of walks past meadows will bring you from small rivers to idyllic farms, until reaching comfy benches ideal for relaxing. There you can admire the beautiful landscape, the villages, the woods and mountains. You will be enchanted.

The "DSV Nordic Active Park" in Vallunga is born as an innovative concept of the German Skiing Association DSV. The Centre is open all the year: in the winter for cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing and in the summer for nordic walking.
From Selva Gardena, Vallunga provides a magnificent backdrop for cross-country skiing. A total of 12 km of trails lead from the Carabinieri Sports Centre to the end of the valley. There is a cross-country Ski School and a ski hire at the start of the trail.
The Vallunga is also excellent for snowshoeing and snow-hiking.
Many ski schools in Val Gardena offer cross country lessons.
