Winter Walks in Selva Gardena


The walk through the Vallunga starts from the Parish Church on a tarmac road leading in the direction of Garni Broi. Follow the path to the left of Garni Mezdì, which rejoins the road after about three-quarters of a mile. The walk to the end of the valley (Pra da Ri) takes about 1½ hours (open in winter).

"Via Crucis"

There is also a path running beneath the Stevia Wall, which is one of the oldest in Val Gardena and leads through particularly beautiful scenery. This path starts in Daunëi and leads to St. Silvester’s Chapel in Vallunga. It is also a path of meditation, with fourteen stations of the cross, which were created by a group of local artists and the young people of the village in 1983. The various stations of the Passion have been carved into tree trunks and wood. An explanatory booklet is available at the church. (The path is also open in winter.)

The ruins of Wolkenstein Castle

Can be reached by a steep path that branches off to the left at the Carabinieri training centre in Vallunga. The path can also be reached from St. Silvester’s Chapel. The return route is via Daunëi to the centre of Selva. (The path can also be used with caution in late winter).

Belvedere walk

The Belvedere walk ("sa i uedli") leads from Hotel Corona in the direction of the Dantercëpies Gondola. At Pensione Scoiattolo, there is a turn right and the path zig-zags steeply up to the ridge of Piz Ciaslat (15 minutes). The views from the top are very rewarding. The path is not recommended in winter.

The old line of the Val Gardena Railway

Is now used as a path that takes you to S. Cristina in a leisurely hour, and on to Ortisei in a further hour. Or you can follow the trail of the Val Gardena Railway in the other direction, to Plan and Plan de Gralba (open in winter).

Monte Pana

The walk to Monte Pana starts from the Oswald von Wolkenstein Cultural Centre. The route starts as a zig-zag path to the left before descending slightly to the Pensione La Pineta. Then turn left through the woods to La Sëlva and continue through wood and meadow to Monte Pana (1½ hours; not recommended in winter).

Keep-fit path

There is also a keep-fit path with a total of 18 exercises leading from the Oswald von Wolkenstein Cultural Centre to a fine vantage point. The view towards Vallunga reveals the prehistoric processes of glaciation in the valley. The course takes an hour to complete if you do all exercises as recommended (not for winter use).
