Holidays on Mount Vigiljoch near Merano

The car-free mountain above Lana

Long closed to road traffic, Mount Vigiljoch is a short cable car ride from Lana. Mount Vigiljoch is ideal for hiking and mountain biking, with various trails crossing mountain pastures and larch forests and past thermal springs, with breath-taking views of the Dolomites.

The traditional mountain restaurant on the shore of Schwarze Lacke lake is just one of many places to stop for a meal along the way. The elegant 5-star vigilius mountain resort is located just next to the Vigiljoch Cable Car mountain station.

In summer, Mount Vigiljoch is transformed into a family holiday destination, with outdoor activities such as hiking, Nordic walking, mountain biking and paragliding. In winter, this small ski area has all the facilities needed for a perfect skiing holiday, away from the larger bustling ski areas.
