Travelling by car
Val Gardena can be reached using the Brenner Motorway (A22). Coming from the north, follow the route Innsbruck – Brennero – Chiusa. Coming from the south, follow Verona – Trento – Bolzano. Take the Chiusa/Val Gardena exit. Following the well-marked roads, you should reach Ortisei in about 20 minutes, then S. Cristina and Selva Gardena. At the end of the valley, you come to the Dolomite pass ways. They are only a few minutes away. You do not need a car to get around in Val Gardena. The lifts depart directly from the single towns and there is also a good organised bus service.
