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 walking trails in the Dolomites. Just don’t forget your camera as the views are incredible!

A relaxing Dolomite retreat

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.

Inviting spa facilities

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.

24/7 support & tailored advice from our local resort team


Selva is one of three villages in the famous Val Gardena in the Dolomites. These mountains are like no other, not only in geological structure but in their unique beauty. The Dolomites are simply out of this world, with distinctive jagged tooth-like peaks that glow pink at dawn and dusk - a phenomenon called ‘enrosadira’. They’re so special, the whole range is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. The entire area is a network of national parks, nature reserves, and endless walking opportunities with festivals, concerts, fairs and sporting events taking place throughout summer - there is plenty on offer for the whole family.

Walking in the Dolomites 

Buy a Dolomiti Supersummer pass to use the lifts and ramble across hundreds of kilometres of mountain trails with endless walking opportunities, or get a Gardena card if you want to stay local - this area has some of the best views, after all. Many beautiful trails start in Selva Gardena. One of the most popular is the Seceda Ridgeway, a 6-mile walk from the village centre to the top of the Seceda mountain, winding its way through lush meadows, dense forests and rocky terrain. All, of course, with unbeatable views. The Puez-Odle Nature Park, a protected area with some of the best Dolomite scenery, has a number of routes with varying difficulty, ranging from leisurely walks to strenuous hikes.

Family adventures in Selva 

The Val Gardena Active programme has lots of fun and free activities for kids and teens. With plenty of family-friendly hikes too! Set off together in search of adventure playgrounds or local wildlife. Teenagers will love the mountain lifestyle with plenty of things to do to get their adrenaline pumping, with zip-lining, hiking, mini-golf, and even mountain biking to try out. See our 'things to do' tab for more information on family activities. 

E-biking in the Dolomites

Tackle the hills and cruise along valley paths with the help of an electric motor, giving you the time to take in the mountain views. It doesn’t get much better than an e-bike tour of mountain huts, or ‘rifugi’ as they call them, to combine outdoor adventure with local food and wine.

Selva culture and history

Selva is steeped in culture and history. It has a rich Ladin heritage, with its unique customs, traditions and cuisine to discover. The region was also strategic during World War I with battles fought between the Italian and Austro-Hungarian forces along the mountain fronts. Cut into the mountains here are caves and tunnels, which are open for visitors to explore on walks.
