The Schlern/Sciliar area is a famous hiking paradise for both the young and not-so-young. You'll find plenty of well-kept and well-marked hiking trails that offer a variety of length and difficulty. We'll be happy to advise you.
Starting right at the hotel, you can hike through blossoming meadows and mixed woods to a mountain lake called VÖLSER WEIHER/Laghetto di Fiè, a bathing paradise right under the Schlern mountain. From there, proceed to the alpine pasture called TUFF-ALM (1,270 m/4,150 ft) or to the HOFERALPL (1,364 m/4,475 ft). If that is not enough, walk through the dramatic gorge of the Schlern and up the "Prügelweg" to the top of the SCHLERN (2,457 m/8,061 ft) and "Schlernhaus", probably the nicest mountain lodge in the Dolomites.
By car, or using the complimentary shuttle bus, you can reach the lower station of the SEISER ALM BAHN within a few minutes. This cable car will take you to the SEISER ALM/Alpe di Siusi (1,800-2,100 m/5,900-6,900 ft), a splendid plateau that is, with its surface area of 54 km2/21 mi2, not only Europe's largest pasture, but certainly also one of its nicest. In summer, this fantastic hiking area is a wonderland of alpine flora that will be hard to find anywhere else.
Cool your feet in a mountain creek, take a leisurely hike over the pastures, work your body up a steep mountain, dare to climb a rock in the LANG- and PLATTKOFELGRUPPE/Sassolungo & Sasso Piatto - you can be sure you'll find your calling.
