Walking heaven

Great for summer walking using cables cars to access the high mountains and pastures. Plenty of mountain huts for refreshments on your routes.

The venue is a two hour journey from Genoa airport which is a negative but this is a nice area to walk. The paths were well maintained. the views were good and the people friendly.

The three villages, Wolkenstein, St Christina and St Ulrich are very beautiful. The mountains, alpine meadows and mountain huts are as beautiful as the most beautiful Swiss places, but come at a 30 % discount

My wife and I have been to Selva in Gardena several times now and always really enjoy both the valley with its villages of Selva/Christina and Ortisei and the many walks to be found on the high ground above them . Some of our favourite walks are.....1. Walking across the Sella Group taking the funivia at Passo Pordoi to the... More

Follow the old first world war railway line from Selva to Ortisei. It's a good walk if you struggle with mountain terrain as it is on the flat.

Wow what a place! Took a train up one of the mountains from Ortisai, then walked down 3 hours - which wasn't too tough - my 7 month pregnant wife did it! The area is amazing, just the fact that there are houses there is fascinating. If you are reading this thinking about visiting, don't think twice!

All the paths are clearly marked and many even tell you how long it will take to get to your destination. It's almost impossible to get lost. Many of the paths are very challenging as it's a mountainous area but there are also many low level buggy friendly paths for a gentle stroll. I was there in August and it... More
