Over 133 km of trailsCross-country skiing

Endless distance & cross-country trails

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 133 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!

Cross-country skiing in Selva Val Gardena

The Vallunga offers a great landscape for cross-country skiers in the Natural Park Puez – Odle, just north-east of Selva Val Gardena. Only 15/20 minutes on foot from the parish church of Selva Val Gardena. You can park your car behind the training centre of the Carabinieri (parking place La Ciajota). In the near vicinity you will find the branch of the ski and cross-country school of Selva Val Gardena, which also serves as a meeting place and as a storage facility. A cross-country ski hire centre is also on site.

In the first, flat part of the Vallunga there are short cross-country slopes, identified by green and blue signs. Ideal for beginners. For experienced cross-country skiers there is a 5 km red training slope, which has also been approved for national cross-country races. If you're looking for a longer cross-country hike (black sign), the whole valley can be crossed on a 10 km itinerary until the “Pra da Rì“ field against the stunning backdrop of mountains.

  • 3,0 km slope 2 - level of difficulty: easy - altitude difference 55 m - blue

At the entrance of the valley lies a biathlon centre: local athletes of the Ski Club Gardena train here as well as the Carabinieri sport group. At the beginning of the Vallunga there are many opportunities to rest and quench your thirst and hunger. For further information:
