The Val di Fiemme is a valley in the Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol region in northern Italy located in the Dolomites mountains region.

The valley composes the Avisio’s river basin with Fassa Valley and Cembra Valley.

The valley has been in a dispute between Austria and Italy during most of the 20th century before it was resolved with a treaty between both nations in 1971.

As a tourist attraction, Fiemme Valley has become well known for its skiing areas, even hosting the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships for both 1991 and 2003. The town is also up for nomination for the 2013 Championships after being a nominee for the 2011 where it lost out to Oslo.

Fiemme Valley’s skiing area is the Fiemme-Obereggen Valley, that is part of the Dolomites super ski.

The area near Cavalese has seen two major cable car disasters, one in 1976 and one, caused by a United States Marine Corps airplane flying too low, in 1998. In 1985, the Stava Dam Valley collapse killed 268 people in Tesero.
