Val Badia is situated in the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage Site's unique natural landscape and is therefore also known as “the heart of the Dolomites”. The valley begins at San Lorenzo in Val Pusteria and extends as far as the majestic Sella massif. With its five municipalities, Corvara, Badia, La Valle, San Martin de Tor and Marebbe, the valley is one of the most popular, well-known winter sport and hiking destinations in the entire Alpine region.
In winter, the Alta Badia ski resort in Val Badia offers 130 km of perfectly groomed slopes and 53 state-of-the-art ski lifts. Part of the Dolomiti Superski route and the famous Sellaronda, the Dolomites ski area offers endless fun on the slopes for both skiers and snowboarders, as well as families, beginners and experts alike. Stunning cross-country tracks, toboggan runs, winter hiking trails and ice rinks complete the scene for those who enjoy active holidays.
In the summer months, the Fanes-Senes-Braies and Puez-Odle/Geisler nature reserves, as well as the Sasso di Santa Croce, Piz Boè and Lagazuoi mountains invite hikers and climbers to the region. It’s also a true paradise for mountain bikers, thanks to Val Badia's many, well-signposted mountain bike trails and routes.
A perfect blend of tradition and modern life awaits in the land of the Ladin language and culture. Culture lovers will enjoy a visit to the Ladin Museum in the castle Ciastel de Tor, following the historical footsteps of the Dolomite Ladins as well as admiring the traditional, hand crafted costumes worn at various religious festivals, processions and parades. Furthermore, the ‘Viles’ – clusters of typical Ladin houses which line Val Badia’s hillsides, are also of particular interest.
Food lovers will be just as satisfied as those in search of active pursuits, or those seeking peace and quiet. In Val Badia, you will find traditional inns offering local and Mediterranean cuisine alongside impressive, renowned gourmet restaurants.
Look forward to an unforgettable holiday in one of the most beautiful holiday regions of the Dolomites.
