The Nature Park Hotel Stefaner is committed to the idea of careless holidays. It is the ideal starting point for numerous fantastic hikes in the Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park in the Dolomites, a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site.
Depending on your physical condition and your mood you can either take a leisurely walk to the Schönblick mountain inn or undergo a more challenging excursion up to the Sciliar mountain. An insider tip is the tour through the fairytale forests to the Tschafon Alpine hut and then further on up to the summit cross on the Völsegger peak. From there you can enjoy a breathtaking view across the Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park. Another highly recommended hike leads from the wild and romantic Tschamintal valley to the Tierser Alpine pasture or the Grasleiten Alpine hut from where you can admire the imposing peaks of the Catinaccio and the Dolomites.
An exceptional excursion for experienced hikers leads through the Bärenfälle ravine on to the Alpe di Siusi Alpine pasture. Unforgettable scenery and a majestic panorama await you. All of these impressive hikes can be initiated on foot or by bus from the Nature Park Hotel Stefaner. There is a bus stop next to the hotel, where in winter a free ski bus operates. In just 15 minutes you can reach the Carezza ski area.
The provincial capital city of Bolzano/Bozen is a 45 minute bus-ride away and the bus starts hourly in front of the Hotel. The advantage taking a bus, is that you sit back and enjoy the wonderful scenery of South Tyrol. Bolzano is the central point of the transport network in South Tyrol; from here you can easily continue on in all directions.
