Dolomites Val Gardena is the ideal holiday destination for families who would like to spend their vacation in a location where both children and adults feel good. Our smaller guests will be able to make the most of their downtime with countless adventures in the mountains: a varied network of hiking paths, amazing cycling routes and huts and restaurants which will welcome your children with open arms.

Dolomites Val Gardena doesn’t know the meaning of the word ‘boredom’. The Pana Raida thematic path and the tightrope path in Ortisei are just two of the countless rewarding day trips in the region. Believe it or not, even parents feel relaxed during a family holiday in Dolomites Val Gardena. Indeed, plenty of hotels and restaurants offer special deals for children ranging from playing corners to child-friendly menus and a lively entertainment programme. Stroppy children who throw tantrums are a mystery to us: our small guests are always in the best mood, which allows the adults to relax and enjoy their well-deserved holiday in peace.

Family comes first!

A lot of families dream of getting to their holiday destination and start relaxing from the outset. However, in Val Gardena this isn’t just a dream: everything is ready to ensure that both you and your family can fully enjoy your vacation. Is it your child’s birthday during the family holiday? Then your child will receive a birthday present by heading to the Tourism Office. Incidentally, while you’re at it, you can also request a babysitter list and book professional child-minding services. There’s no need to feel guilty about it, as you deserve some quality time with your other half, too. Your child will relish the varied entertainment programme during the summer as well as the Kids Active programme, bursting with learning activities about nature taking place in the beautiful Dolomites mountains. Numerous modern playgrounds and day trips in the region are the perfect excuse to let your hair down and for your kids to have a world of fun.

TIERES - Animals in the woods

Find the animals in the woods

We live in an enchanting nature, this fantastic Dolomite territory is also a natural habitat of numerous wild animals such as deer, chamois, foxes, squirrels, marmots and hares. Animals that live free are very difficult to meet, so the idea of a thematic path was born. In collaboration with the Professional School of Arts in Ortisei, 15 students have carved the life-sized animals in wood and then they were positioned along the walks and near the woods around Selva.
