Things to see and do in Val Gardena

  • For summer time, we recommend buying the Mountain Pass (MTP) for Alta Badia. This gives you unlimited rides (for the days purchased) on the listed mountain lifts and discounted public transport which is far cheaper than buying your tickets from the lift station
  • A trip to the Hidden Valley with its frozen waterfall and horse pulled tow-ropes at the bottom to take you back to the ski lift
  • A long ski from La Villa (or slightly shorter from Corvara) to the bottom of the Marmolada glacier takes you to the Sottaguda gorge - this is definitely worth the burning legs getting there but you need to be on the first lift to make it there and back!
  • Pisciadù waterfalls is well worth a stroll to in the summer. It takes around an hour if you start from the centre of La Villa
