Selva Val Gardena is getting ready for a very special Christmas.
The idyllic village of Selva, in the heart of the Dolomites, at the foot of the majestic Sella mountain group, is, at 1550 metres above sea level, the highest town in Val Gardena. With its direct connection to the legendary ski tour 'Sella Ronda', it offers 500km of perfectly prepared slopes for every ski lover.
This Christmas in Selva an old fashioned cable car of miniature wooden cabins, shining with fairy lights, can be found hanging above a magical Christmas village. A typical mountain hamlet will be brought to life with traditional huts of stone and rustic wood, like those of times gone by.

Strolling through the village you can stop to try a steaming hot mug of mulled wine or warm mulled apple drink, and you can easily find the perfect Christmas gift such as sweet scented pine pillows, cosy mountain slippers, warm woolly socks, wooden nativity scenes, and many other items to decorate your mountain Christmas.
Thousands of twinkling lights infused with sweet Christmas melodies will be sure to light up the hearts of young and old alike.
