Yes, Houdini has an excellent (best in industry imho) support for Python scripting. Houdini Python module can be imported to regular Python session, or used inside Hython, which is like regular Python interpreter with builtin Houdini module. With Python you can do everything Houdini can offer (some omissions can be found but don't relate to anything important). Some references for you: 

Opening and inspecting scene:
