The "Marlinger Waalweg" path is the longest ex-irrigation canal in South Tyrol and is only a 12-minute walk from Marlena. It is known as an ideal destination for dog walking and winds through the fairly flat paths of Monte di Marlengo passing through the villages of Foresta, Marlengo, Cermes and Castel Monteleone. Starting in Tel di Parcines and ending 12 km later, just before Lana, it can also be walked in stages. Your four-legged best friend can run happily between the green meadows and apple orchards.
