A bike season lasting from March to November, about 300 days of sun a year, fantastic panoramic landscapes, and hosts and Bike School that know what they are talking about: We can highly recommend Merano & environs for a mountain-bike, road bike or trekking bike vacation.

Merano & environs is truly varied: there are blooming orchards in the valley, while alpine and high-alpine landscapes await you in Val d'Ultimo/Ultental. Avelengo/Hafling and Scena/Schenna offer plenty of panoramic landscapes and tour options, just like Naturno/Naturns, Plaus and Rablà/Rabland. Regardless of the bike type you prefer: you will be surprised about the large number of tour proposals that the South Tyrolean BikeHotels and the Bike Schools can offer.

Highlights for a road bike, pleasure or mountain-bike vacation in Merano & environs:
  • The road bike highlights Passo del Rombo/Timmelsjoch, Passo di Monte Giovo/Jaufenpass, and Passo delle Palade/Gampenpass
  • The trail area surrounding Naturno and Rablà
  • The apple blossom in spring – attractive for pleasure cyclists
  • "Törggelen" – Thanksgiving for lovers of traditional South Tyrolean cuisine
  • The organisational talent of the South Tyrolean bike hosts and Bike Schools – you won't have to think about anything!
