The Dolomites experience


Finding freedom in the mountains: hiking, biking and skiing in Val Gardena.

Rugged cliffs, pale rock and gentle high plateaus marked by Alpine pastures are all characteristic of the Dolomites. This mountain range, south of the Limestone Alps, surrounds the Val Gardena village of Selva and makes it an ideal destination for all those looking to experience nature – whether in summer or in winter! During the day, explore the mountains around the Sella massif, savour traditional South Tyrolean mountain fare in one of the many Alpine huts and, in the evening, marvel at the famous Alpine glow as the setting sun turns the pale dolomite rock a bright red. The unique qualities of the Dolomites meant that they were added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 2009 – and the Mountain Residence Saleghes is located right in their midst, with views from the rooms and apartments that each day inspire guests to experience this fascinating natural world on foot, by bike or on skis. The Dolomites of the Val Gardena will get under your skin and into your heart, staying there forever in the form of unforgettable memories.

A paradise for hiking, climbing and mountain biking:

summer holidays in the Val Gardena Dolomites.

The Dolomites of the Val Gardena appeal both to the physique and to the eyes. The Sella massif, the Sassolungo, the Cir peaks and the flanks of the Puez group all provide Selva with a stunning visual backdrop. Meadows, forests and rock towers together produce a fabulous setting for anyone wishing to explore the natural world in summer – with the Mountain Residence Saleghes as the perfect starting point! There are innumerable hiking routes, mountain bike trails and tours in the immediate vicinity, while there are also fixed-rope routes and climbing tours that offer a – literal – feel for the mountains. The Val Gardena Dolomites can even be experienced from on high, looking down from a paraglider. When it comes to adventure here, the sky is truly the limit!

Fun on skis and adventures in the snow:

winter holidays in the Val Gardena Dolomites.

Skiers and snowboarders zoom down the slopes of the famous Sella Ronda, while cross-country skiers skim over the white expanses, snowshoers and winter walkers crunch their way through the forests and ski tourers strive for the next summit. The local Val Gardena ski area offers a total of 175 kilometres of pistes and forms part of the Dolomiti Superski carousel, which boasts no fewer than 1,200 kilometres of ski runs. The Mountain Residence Saleghes in Selva is located just 900m from the lifts, the access to the Sella Ronda and the practice slopes. There is a private shuttle service for holiday guests that runs every day between 9 am and 10 am, while a free ski bus stops regularly at the bus stop outside the hotel during the day. It is even possible to ski directly back to the Mountain Residence Saleghes, as the ski trail, open until middle of March, passes right by.
