Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

It’s hard to decide what we like more about the Hotel Aaritz – the elegant interiors with the comfy sofas that invite you to relax in the lobby or the location, right in front of the Ciampinoi gondola. It couldn’t be easier to head up into the mountains and discover some of the best trails in the Dolomites. Just don’t forget your camera as the views are incredible!

You’ll be well taken care of at this hotel. There’s a very relaxing atmosphere throughout, helped by the warm colours in the lobby and rooms. They’ve all got private balconies that are nice place to relax before dinner. Or you can head to the bar and try a glass of local wine. There’s so much to see and do around the area but if you do find yourself with a bit of spare time, we recommend heading to the spa. There’s a lovely indoor pool that has access to the garden so you can top up your tan. There’s a Turkish bath, sauna and fully-equipped gym too. If you fancy spoiling yourself, book in for a treatment. It’s the perfect way to get those legs ready for some more mountain trails the next day.

Transfer time: approx. 2 hours 30 mins by coach from Verona airport.

What to see on a Selva holiday

Hiking in the mountains is a must when you visit Selva. The wild flower meadows are in full bloom from mid-May to mid-July, so remember to bring your camera. The trails stretch for miles and early birds can enjoy a spectacular sunrise before tucking in to a well-earned breakfast on the mountain. Keep an eye out for marmots in the wild and golden eagles soaring above you. Visit the Wolkenstein Castle to take in some local culture and when it’s time for a break, find a spot in town for aperitivo and relax with a well-deserved Aperol Spritz.

Things to Do

Things to see and do in Selva

Selva is directly below the Sella Massif. You can expect amazing scenery from this unique mountain range and the Gardena Valley. Most people head for the mountains to explore the endless paths and hiking trails. Rent an e-bike to take the strain off the uphill climbs or jump on a lift for a picturesque ride up to the higher peaks. However you get to the top, expect panoramic views that will blow you away.

Back in resort you’ll find plenty of shops, restaurants and bars. Pop along the road to Ortisei to check out the markets. The town’s known for its traditional wood carvings. 

Food & drink 

Whether you’re after an espresso, crisp glass of local wine or a cocktail, there's plenty of great places to choose from, both in resort and on the mountain. The food won’t disappoint either. The typical mountain fare has more Austro-Hungarian influences than it does Italian. Nothing beats rich goulash with dumplings followed by homemade apple strudel after a day exploring the mountains. Although Italian food lovers needn’t worry, it’s easy to stumble upon restaurants serving delicious pizzas, stone baked to perfection.


Mountain biking in the area is second to none. Selva’s Trail Arena has a number of different runs for all abilities. Experienced riders should head for the freeride trails through the forest and for those after something more gentle the winding routes on the family line are just as fun. Best of all the lifts take you to the top of the runs, so all you need to do is enjoy the ride down.

One of the best things in Selva is the Active programme. It includes Nordic walking tasters, rock climbing for beginners, mountain biking, visits to local stables, cookery lessons and yoga. Most of these activities are free.
