High slopes and fantastic scenery make Arabba simply unmissable.
Arabba (1600m) is situated in the Veneto region of Italy in the south east section of the Sella Ronda - the huge network of connected slopes across the Dolomites linking the resorts of Arabba, Val Gardena, Alta Badia and Val di Fassa. Set between the Gruppo del Sella massif and the Marmolada glacier, Arabba offers the most spectacular scenery as well as some of the highest slopes in the region.
In Arabba, you will find the same wooden style of architecture and mountain village feel as its neighboring resorts in South Tyrol. Although small, Arabba offers an intimate and charming mountain-village feel as well as easy access to the ski lifts from most accommodation.
Despite the limited après options in the village, there are still a number of decent bars and restaurants around serving up generous and delicious platters as you might expect from the famed Italian cuisine. For the best views head up to the livelier mountain restaurants that cater to those enjoying the linked pistes of the Sella Ronda ski circuit. We recommend that you try a tipple of 'Il Bombardino' - a specialty (and rather potent) drink from the Dolomites.
Overall, visitors to Arabba can expect a more laid-back Italian atmosphere and an environment in which one can be totally absorbed by the serenity and beauty of the Dolomites. For those looking for a quiet place to relax after a day enjoying the vast Dolomiti Superski area, Arabba is the resort for you.
