Adventurous active holiday in South Tyrol

Schenna Hotels – nature experiences in a class of their own

Active holidays in South Tyrol are available in many variations. If you are looking for a certain adrenaline kick, Schenna Hotels near Meran offer the ideal holiday accommodation for you.

Meran 2000

The leisure mountain Merano/Meran 2000 lies above the spa town of Meran and is a true Eldorado for active holidaymakers in South Tyrol. The largest cable car in South Tyrol takes you comfortably to the sun-drenched local recreation area below Ivigna/Ifinger in just a few minutes. From here, you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the South Tyrolean mountains – the view extends from the imposing Ortles/Ortler to the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage site. Varied hiking trails for every taste and every fitness level will take you to rustic Alpine pastures or to mountain peaks with a great view. Action-packed mountain bike trails with a 360° panoramic view lead over forest and Alpine paths – ideal for taking in the breathtaking natural landscape. If you prefer a cosy atmosphere, you can indulge yourself in traditional huts with typicalSouth Tyrolean dishes. Children will also get their money’s worth in Meran 2000: the Outdoor Kids Camp at the mountain station of the cable car offers the ideal setting to let off steam.


On an active holiday in Schenna, you can experience the intense diversity of the region while climbing. On the Taseralm in Schenna, you will find the Taseralm high ropes course – a dream destination for your climbing holiday in South Tyrol with the whole family. Here, you can climb up to 15 metres in altitude under the supervision of professional mountain guides. The special feature of the Taseralm high ropes course is the 45-metre-long suspension bridge with the so-called "flying fox", a 60-metre-long cable car. The spectacular panoramic view of the Ortles/Ortler mountains, the Texel Group, and the Stubai Alps is also a real highlight.

During your active holiday in South Tyrol, discover the high ropes course Xsund in Terlan (which is ideal for the whole family), the climbing course Saustall for true professionals in Naturns (with probably the most difficult climbing routes in all of South Tyrol), the climbing course Burgstollknott in Partschins (for beginners, but not suitable for children), or the demanding Heini Holzer via ferrata over the south-western flank of the Piccolo Ivigna/Kleiner Ifinger (self-securing required).


Game, set, match – if your heart beats for the great sport, an active holiday in South Tyrol is exactly the right thing for you. In Schenna there are two well-maintained public clay courts. These are playable daily from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and illuminated in the evening with floodlights. If you are looking for even more tennis fun, the Tennis Club Meran has 13 perfectly prepared clay courts – 4 of which are in the heated tennis hall, 5 of which are illuminated in the evening – and its own tennis school with experienced coaches.


Who hasn’t dreamt of flying high in the air, gliding over the mountains and seeing the world from a new perspective? The Tandem ClubIfinger offers active holidaymakers in South Tyrol tandem flights at any time of year with starting points such as the Hirzer mountain station, the Taseralm at Montescena/Schennaberg or the Hochmut Inn in Dorf Tirol. If you wish, photos can be taken during the flight, which you can take home with you as a souvenir.


Another highlight for active holidaymakers in South Tyrol is rafting, which is possible from May to September. Jump together with the professional rafting guides of the Acquaterra Adventure Club into the thundering waters of the Adige/Etsch or Passirio/Passer rivers and explore South Tyrol’s wild water world on a rubber dinghy. If you are looking for the unusual, we recommend night rafting, kayaking, canyoning, or hydrospeed!

Nordic walking

Nordic walking fans will find a wide range of tours for all levels around Schenna Hotels. Discover the Nature.Fitness.Park Schenna-Hirzer-Meran 2000 with a total of 7 tours and the Nature.Fitness.Park Naturns with 10 tours. Alternatively, you can walk on one of the varied walks and irrigation channels around the sunny village of Schenna.

The basis for this trendy sport from Scandinavia is a cross-coordinated gait. The left arm and the right leg move simultaneously, and vice versa. The cross-coordinated gait is basically the same one used when walking. The rhythm is also important in Nordic walking, i.e. stick and foot are put down at the same time.
