Discover the magic of summer in Val Gardena at Hotel Grones.

The Dolomites are a true paradise for active holidaymakers. Countless hikes, challenging bike trails and climbing routes guarantee the ultimate adrenaline rush.


Explore the area on the well-kept and neatly marked paths of the Dolomitic mountain world. A modern and incredibly efficient lift system can whisk you in comfort to higher places. Every day you spend in Val Gardena turns into an exciting experience if you like walking amongst alpine cabins, mountain streams and larches.
The Gardena Valley offers plenty of hiking opportunities of varying levels of difficulty to accommodate all individuals: you can take the gondola lift up to the flat alpine pastures on Alpe di Siusi plateau, ascend either to Rasciesa-alp on board of a modern funicular, or to Seceda-alp. From here you can proceed farther till you reach the Puez-Odle mountain group with its countless hiking trails.
If the range of opportunities offered by the Gardena Valley is still not enough for you, you can access the Sella Pass, the Pordoi Pass or the Gardena Pass and go hiking on the tracks of enchanting mountains such as Fanes, Marmolada and Catinaccio. It won’t be easy to make a choice but any excursion will be ravishing and worthwhile!

Mountain bike

The whole Val Gardena is a true eldorado for mountain bikers who have a vast array of tracks to keep fit on with a lot of fun! An endless range of easy and difficult routes will take you through the magic mountain world of the Dolomites.
With the help of a mountain bike guide and profiting from the local mountain railways you can ride your mountain bike around the Sella massif in one day (Sellaronda MTB Track Tour). The passes of the Dolomites have always represented the hardest challenge for all bikers. That’s why they represent the main highlights of the area. On Sellaronda Bike Day for instance all Dolomitic passes around the Sella massif are closed and accessible only by bikers.

Climbing and mountaineering

The Dolomites are known worldwide as one of the most beautiful areas for climbers and mountaineers. The peaks are exceptionally fascinating for lovers of this sport!
For all climbers and mountaineers walking on ridges and climbing steep walls are unforgettable experiences. The Alpine school Catores and its experienced guides will be glad to recommend a long list of routes throughout the valley. The via ferrata Meisules, via ferrata Oskar-Schuster and via ferrata Pisciadù are maybe the most famous of the several climbing tracks Val Gardena is rich in.
All villages in the Gardena Valley - Ortisei, Selva and S. Cristina – are equipped with outdoor and indoor climbing walls where you can practice on rainy days. Another exciting trail experience for the whole family is the new Adventure path „Emozion Col de Flam” near Seceda station.
