Winter hiking for the entire family

Enjoy the untouched winter landscape in the car-free Vigiljoch nature reserve

The only way up to the Vigiljoch pass is by cable car, which happens to be the second oldest suspension cable car in Europe. And although it's only a seven-minute drive up from Lana, time seems to pass more slowly here than in the valley. Enjoying a relaxing hike through the idyllic winter landscape of the car-free nature reserve takes you past the Church of St. Vigilius, one of highest churches in South Tyrol, across spacious meadows and through the Vigiljoch forest blanketed in deep snow. 

The view of the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites is impressive from both the viewing platform and the hiking trails. The easy winter hiking trails, some of which are pram-friendly, are designed with family outings in mind. Little ones can have fun at the petting zoo with rabbits, goats and donkeys. In addition, children up to 8 years of age can ride the cable car free of charge. If you want to go on a snowshoe hike beyond the tracked trails, you can rent suitable snowshoes at the valley station of the Vigiljoch cable car in Lana.

The joy of snowshoe hiking

Closed to traffic, panoramic and family-friendly. The nostalgia of the Vigiljoch hiking area is especially evident in winter. There are glittering paths, dense coniferous forests and cosy huts that will spoil you with homemade specialities.

Experience magical moments

Mountain peaks sparkling in the winter sun. Solitary tracks in the snow. Crystal clear winter air.  Fall in love with the South Tyrol’s romantic side in winter during a visit to these quiet places.
