At the foot of the Sassolungo and surrounded by Alpine meadows is the smallest village in the Val Gardena valley. Santa Cristina is strongly influenced by the Ladin way of life. The village is perfectly situated for all those who can hardly wait to conquer the Dolomites on holiday. Santa Cristina offers direct access to local ski areas and is an ideal starting point for hikes of all degrees of difficulty. One of the yearly highlights in Santa Cristina takes place on the slopes of the Alpe di Seceda Alpine pasture. The Gardenissima is the longest giant slalom race in the world.
