HIKING AND BIKING IN LANA
Mountains on one side, the wide plateau of the Etschtal Valley on the other - Lana is a central starting point for hiking and cycling tours at all altitudes. Enjoy the numerous cycling trails, panoramic paths and mountain routes even without a car. All hiking destinations are within easy reach by public transport or cable cars.
Start your excursions into nature directly from your apartment. Above our house there are two beautiful paths, the “Alpenrosenweg” and the “Naturlehrpfad”, which connect other hiking and walking paths. Flat paths wind their way through Lana’s orchards, also ideal for buggies. Or how about a bike tour along the Wine Route?
Especially popular with families are the two irrigation channels “Brandiswaalweg” in Lana or the “Marlinger Waalweg”. The latter leads almost evenly along an irrigation channel and offers fantastic views.
From leisurely hikes in the valley to challenging mountain tours to one of the many three thousand metre peaks. The surroundings of Lana offer endless hiking possibilities.
The Vigiljoch is reachable on foot or comfortably by cable car, which starts only five minutes by car from our aparthotel. At the top you will find a true natural idyll among larch forests, alpine meadows and healing springs.
Further beautiful hikes run in the hiking area Meran 2000 and in the Texel Group Nature Park, like the high-altitude trail “Meraner Höhenweg”.

In Lana and surroundings not only nature lovers get their money's worth, but there is also something for those who likes culture and history. In addition to numerous churches, South Tyrol is rich in castles and museums.
