There are also excellent hiking conditions in winter and thanks to the mild valley climate many of the walks in the lower reaches near Parcines/Partschins remain free of snow. The Waalwege trails along the ancient irrigation channels are ideal for a leisurely family outing, while sportsmen and women can go snowshoe hiking in the white winter splendor of the Texelgruppe Nature Park. There are great winter hiking trails on the Nörderberg mountain, including the Bad-Egart circuit and the Hochwald route.
After a day in the outdoors, all-day hikers can choose to relax in the pools and saunas at one of the hospitable spa hotels in Parcines, Rablà/Rabl and Tel/Töll.
Snow sports and wellness can be combined for a skiing holiday in Parcines/Partschins, with four ski areas only half an hour away. The Ortler Skiarena complex consists of the family-friendly Merano 2000, Mount Vigiljoch near Lana, the unspoiled nature of the Schwemmalm area and the exciting Schnalstal Glacier with snow all year round.
After a day out on the slopes there is nothing better than relaxing in one of the spa hotels in Parcines, Rablà/Rabland and Tel/Töll, in Merano’s thermal baths or in the Naturno Adventure Pool.
