A wonderful location in the legendary Dolomites

Selva Val Gardena is located at the heart of a breathtaking natural landscape, a picturesque valley surrounded by the Dolomites which have been declared a UNESCO World Natural Heritage because of their uniqueness, beauty and huge impotance for humanity.

The Dolomites: the most beautiful mountains in the world


Many guests have confirmed the Dolomites are the most beautiful mountains in the world. In 2009, UNESCO also recognised the region’s uniqueness, its geological significance and, last but not least, its beauty. After all, it would have not acknowledged the mountain region ‘Dolomites’ as a World Heritage Site if that were not the case. Only regions with a special value for humanity are listed, and they deserve to be protected to preserve this inestimable value. Dolomites Val Gardena shoulders the responsibility which stems from this recognition seriously. Extensive protective measure towards the environment, research and teaching about the peculiarities of the Dolomites go hand-in-hand with an openness to tourism.

Location of our hotel in Selva in Val Gardena

Location of our hotel in Selva in Val Gardena

The Hotel Sun Valley has an excellent sunny location in the centre of Selva (not on the main road) right opposite the ski school. The Dantercepies-Ciampinoi connecting slope leads directly to the hotel. Just 100 m from the hotel you can get on the Ciampinoi lift and the Costabella chairlift, which give you access to the biggest ski circuit in the world, the Dolomiti Superski, and the Sella Ronda ski tour.
In summer the hotel is an ideal base for the walk from Selva to Ortisei (about 8 km). Further, the Langental Valley can be reached on foot too (about 1 km).
