Val Gardena - paradise in the Dolomites

Walking Holidays in the Dolomites

In Val Gardena nature is the true protagonist. When you walk through the woods, you will find pines, larches and maple trees. From an altitude of 1,800 m, Swiss stone pines and mountain pines will make their appearance. You will also be able to see many different wild animals, such as deer, ibexes, finches, rabbits or foxes. At higher altitudes, if you are lucky enough, you may even be able to see some eagle.

The charms of a summer in Val Gardena

The Dolomites are a stunning destination during all seasons. If you love hiking, Garni Crepaz is just the ideal starting point for pleasant walks and unforgettable hiking tours to the peaks of these majestic mountains of the Dolomites. Many families choose the tour “Naturonda”, an easy walk on the path that starts from Sella Pass and leads to the “Stone Town” (Ita. Città dei Sassi), and area in which many eroded stones are lined up so that they look like a natural city.

  • Sassolungo and Sassopiatto: an easy hike, mainly on flat terrain or downhill, but still very worthwhile because it is surrounded by breathtaking scenery.
  • Devil's claw: during this hike you will get to see the Devil’s Claw (Harpagophytum procumbens) a very rare and protected flower that gives the tour its name. The tour is not particularly challenging.
