Ready for your summer holiday in Selva di
Val Gardena?

Have an incredible summer experience in the lush meadows of the Puez-Odle nature park in the South Tyrolean Dolomites and around the imposing Sassolungo mountain

The Ladin Val Gardena is hugely popular with its brilliant blue sky, fresh mountain air, flower meadows, mysterious forests and the pale mountains which light up as the sun sets during enchanting evenings in the Dolomites.
Those who experience the Val Gardena mountains in summer remain extremely loyal. This place embraces visitors with a big heart and offers many delights. Come and see for yourself!

You will have unforgettable experiences in the South Tyrolean Dolomites. Go hiking through the flower meadows with local alpine guides and climb a peak or two in the craggy mountain range. The Hotel Freina offers you a chance to experience all these things. The guided walks and climbing tours are free of charge for our guests! The Val Gardena Active Team in Selva offers guests the following options:


  • Mountain bike tours - 3 weekly tours with professional guides and, if you fancy taking it a bit easy, electric bikes are also available
  • Cookery course – why not watch an experienced farm cook preparing some traditional South Tyrolean and Ladin dishes: every Monday
  • Woodwork course – on Tuesdays and Wednesdays you can find out about the traditional craft of Val Gardena woodcarving
  • Language course – on Friday you can exchange your first words in the Ladin language with local native speakers
  • In autumn – the Dolomites ablaze: the larch trees change colour to yellow and a really special deep sunlight effect makes the Dolomites appear to glow red, a fabulous natural phenomenon
