Val Gardena (Italian: [ˈval ɡarˈdeːna]; German: Gröden [ˈɡrøːdn̩]; Ladin: Gherdëina [ɡʀ̩ˈdɜi̯na] (About this soundlisten)) is a valley in Northern Italy, in the Dolomites of South Tyrol. It is best known as a turistic skiing, rock climbing, and woodcarving area.
The valley’s main river is the Rio Gardena, a tributary of Eisack river. The mountains that surround the valley are formed by dolomite rocks, which confer them a characteristic appearance. Most of the steep slopes are covered by pine woods. The favoured cultivations are barley, rye, potatoes, flax, buckwheat. The three municipalities in Val Gardena are Ortisei, Selva, and Santa Cristina; they were served by the Ferrovia della Val Gardena from 1916 until 1960.
al Gardena is one of five valleys with a majority of Ladin speakers (two of these valleys are in South Tyrol). The form of the Ladin language spoken in this valley is called Gardenese in Italian, Grödnerisch in German and Gherdëina in Ladin.
