Val di Fassa ski hotels and holiday packages

So tell me about it...

The Val di Fassa, in the heart of the Dolomites, occupies the northeastern corner of Trentino, on the borders of the provinces of Bolzano (Alto Adige) and Belluno (Veneto). Val di Fassa lies in the heart of the Dolomites, 300km from Milan. This is a long curving valley of mostly small villages and small ski areas, linked together by ski bus. Located in the 20km-long Fassa valley, it boasts some of the most stunning scenery in Europe. Farming is a major industry here and the ancient language of Ladin is still spoken in the area. Val di Fassa's skiing is linked into the vast Dolomiti Superski lift pass, which also includes the Sella Ronda circuit. Canazei and Campitello are the access points for the circuit, which can take around five hours to complete. There is terrain to suit all levels of ability and the choice and standard of restaurants is much raved about. In winter, the Val di Fassa is first and foremost for skiing, but it is also an enchanting place bursting with natural wonders, fun and cultural interest. While nature is sleeping under the snow, the fun runs wild on the slopes by day and in the pubs and discos by night. An unforgettable holiday among the most beautiful mountains in the world.
