Walking is great, but what about a ride through the lush green natural Alpine landscape of Merano and Environs? Around Schenna, there are about 124 miles of marked cycling paths. So whether you're a recreational cyclist, on a cycling excursion, or interested in downhill cycling, fun and enjoyment are guaranteed.
If you don't want to bring your own bike, the Hohenwart Hotel supplies mountain bikes (free of charge) and e-mountain bikes "Hardtail" (25 Euro per day and 17 Euro per half-day). Excursion programs for biking and route options are available at www.merano-suedtirol.it/en/scena/cycling/.
A challenge for bikers is the Sella Ronda Bike Tour around the Sella Massif. The 33 to 36 miles long route with breathtaking panoramic views over the steep rocky slopes and peaks of the plateau-shaped mountain is leading up to the Sella Pass in four stages. Depending on your level of physical fitness, a section of the ride at altitudes of 9,800 - 13,000 ft, may also be covered by mountain railways. The fast descents are, for the most part, single trail.
Traditionally in August the cycling day (car-free) takes place at the Stelvio Pass, the "Queen of Pass Roads". It winds its way 17 miles through the national park up to the 9,055 ft high Stelvio Summit. The impressive views from Italy's highest mountain pass will reward you for your efforts.
Our tip: Explore South Tyrol with the Bikemobil Card. The ticket enables the use of bus, rail, and rental bike throughout the region. The Bikemobil Card enables you to use all public transport in South Tyrol for 1 day, 3 or 7 consecutive days without restriction, and to use a rental bike on one day. The bikes are available at various rental shops at the railway stations as well as in various service points marked "Südtirol Rad - Bici Alto Adige".
