Thanks to its central location, this vibrant town on the Adige River is an ideal starting point for a variety of active and leisure holiday activities at all altitudes: from leisurely hikes in the valley to challenging mountain climbing at one of several 3,000m high peaks and mountain bike tours in the fascinating surrounding mountains.
Passionate cyclists will find historic passes and mountain roads in Lana and surroundings, while families may prefer a stroll along the Waalwege trails, exploring the child-friendly hiking trails on the Vigiljoch mountain, or cycling in comfort along the Etschradweg trail or the South Tyrolean Wine Route.
