Nature and Recreation in Lana and Environs

Feel good in alpine-mediterranean area. Relaxing between mountains and river delta.

The Lana region is where Alpine mountains meet southern fragrances. Around these parts, roses and chestnut trees grow almost side by side. Mountain peaks, Alpine pastures and extended orchards all offer the natural spectacle before your eyes. Dotted around the countryside are numerous spots for rest and relaxation: down in the valley, in the forests or ensconced between mountain peaks

Due to its hybrid Alpine-Mediterranean climate facing south of the Alps, the Lana region is home to a wide range of fauna and flora. Inhabiting these high mountains are chamois and marmots, as well as a number of bird species and amphibians indigenous to the Lana Falschauer delta. Down in the valley, palms, olive trees and tropical plants proliferate, while Alpine roses and mountain pines grow in the mountains. Although some organised tours are centred on discovering Nature, recreation is also prominent – such as excursions into the untamed Gaulschlucht gorge. There are also guided outings to the Kränzelhof estate in Tscherms/Cermes, with its gardens and winery, and visits to the famed Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle in Meran/Merano.

Mild temperatures in sunny Merano and Environs

While there is still snow in the Alps, in and around Merano/Meran everything is already starting to bloom. Rising to an altitude of over 3,000m a.s.l., the Texelgruppe mountain range protects the Merano basin from precipitation and winds from the north, allowing warm air to blow in from the south. The resulting mild climate produces lush, Alpine-Mediterranean vegetation: pines and birches grow alongside palm and olive trees.

In April, apple trees are in bloom, while in summer the dense forests provide welcome shade. In autumn, colorful trees and vineyards turn the region into a spectacular setting for hiking. The sun and mild temperatures in the spa town of Merano enable outdoor activities from January to December.
