A day in the mountains
Scena/Schenna is located in a vast hiking area which is ideal for outdoor activities, family walks and mountaineering enthusiasts.
Hiking in Scena between palms and mountains with stunning perspectives - a veritable hiker’s paradise. A wide range of hikes, from easy walks down in the valley such as the “Waalwege”, historic irrigation channel pathways, to more difficult routes between Merano 2000 and the Hirzer peak. Well marked hiking trails cover a unique combination of Alpine-Mediterranean landscape: from cypress, olive, palm and many fruit trees up to the high altitude regions with impressive peaks.
Numerous hiking trails are found at higher altitudes leading between mountain huts and shelters, while mountaineers can enjoy climbing and rock-faces with or without an experienced guide. After a long day outdoors, hikers can relax at one of many family-run spa hotels in Scena.
Thanks to the mild local climate, the hiking season in Scena lasts from March to November. Several hiking trails start directly from the hotels, and a modern cableway system connects to hiking areas at higher altitudes. The village of Scena itself is worth visiting. Information can be found at all bus stops regarding the distance between stops and local places of interest. Other information about places of interest, the amount of calories burned during walks and resting places between destinations is also provided along the way.
There are numerous mountain inns and huts for hikers to stop for breaks. Along with delicious traditional South Tyrolean food, light meals are also served, alongside more exotic options such as hayflower crème brûlée with silver fir-scented ice cream and cherry compote, egg gnocchi with mountain herbs and Alpine cheese, homemade ravioli with organic corn-fed cockerel, and much more.
