Summer in South Tyrol

The hills are alive in the Val Gardena

Your active summer holiday in Selva

Of course, it’s not just here at the Savoy that there’s always something happening. The whole of the Val Gardena offers plenty to do. Nature has given the valley huge monuments – the world famous Dolomites, which offer magnificent terrain for walkers and mountaineers. Since June 2009 the Dolomites are a UNESCO World Heritage site, and amongst the most beautiful mountains in the world.

Endless sports and opportunities for outdoor activities are available, from gentle walks to demanding mountain climbs. Like a cobweb, a network of hiking paths spread gently from the alpine meadows of Selva to the narrowest mountain peaks.


Our guests never tire of the nature that surrounds us – no wonder, because Val Gardena is one of the most beautiful corners of South Tyrol. This was confirmed when the “Osservatorio della Montagna”, an Italian marketing study, crowned Val Gardena the “Queen of the Alps”.

But it’s not just friends of nature who will be in their element – art enthusiasts will also find plenty to interest them. Here in the valley you’ll find woodcarvers producing religious and secular statues, pictures and furniture.

Artists who are gifted with their hands still create unique works of art from wood. No mass production. No, each piece is a one-off. You can see this traditional craftsmanship up close in the workshops of the Val Gardena /South Tyrol.
