It’s important to understand that your journey from Milan to Selva Val Gardena will take you to a very high altitude. This may present its own potential complications such as altitude sickness.
Milan airport sits at 235m, while Selva Val Gardena ski resort sits at an altitude of 1570m. Some of the passengers can experience mild discomfort, such as nausea, headaches and dizziness can be symptoms of the change in air pressure. Young children are often at risk to feeling unwell.
When you combine this air pressure change with a steep, serpentine and challenging road, the transfer journey can be difficult. If needed, ask your driver to lower the temperature in the vehicle to help you feel more comfortable.
