Val Gardena is one of Europe's best-kept ski secrets, a beautiful valley of three villages nestled inamongst the Dolomites in the Italian region of South Tyrol.
It is a place of raw Alpine beauty - in fact, it was recently granted UNESCO World Heritage status in recognition of its stunning scenery. More importantly though, Val Gardena is also a Mecca for serious skiing pleasure. There are more than 175 km of in-bound pistes to explore, from Val Gardena in the middle of the Dolomiti Superski-region, you can access to 200 lifts and 500 slope-kilometers, for example - not including the iconic Sella Ronda, a world-famous 65 km circuit which takes in four villages around the Sella mountain.
The Val's three picturesque villages bridge the cultural gap between Austria to the north and Italy in the south, making for an intriguing mix of Teutonic efficiency and Italian charm and cuisine that really has to be experienced to be believed.
