Val di Fiemme – winter holidays for a reasonable price

The Val di Fiemme Valley has become a true mecca for cross-country skiing fans. In these places, which are usually called the gates of the Dolomites, excellent trails are laid for those who like to ride on the plain, want to live in good comfortable hotels, use rentals and service stations, but are not ready to pay a lot of money for it.

Preparations for this grand skiing holiday are in full swing: a new stadium has already been built in Lago di Tesero, hundreds of volunteers are polishing their language skills to make it as good as possible to receive guests of the Championship.
