The fantastic three
On a high plateau bathed in sunshine at a height of around 1,400 metres above sea level, Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis sits enthroned above the upper Tyrolean Inntal valley. In winter, the holiday region is one of the top 10 alpine ski resorts. And in summer? Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis offers the whole family the amazing chance to play sports and games or simply enjoy the region and relax. This summer all three mountain villages will kick off the holiday season on 27 June and invite you to stay with some new surprises.
The summer season in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis kicks off on 27 June
After weeks of uncertainty, an initial easing up of the rules in the tourism and gastronomy sectors in Austria is now imminent including the Tyrolean Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis holiday region. Most restaurants, facilities, accommodation and attractions will open in compliance with the preventive and safety measures now in place. Owing to the current planning uncertainty however, all summer holidays in 2020 which are booked through the Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis Tourist Board can be cancelled or re-booked free of charge up to one week before arrival. At www.serfaus-fiss-ladis.at/en guestscan find up-to-date information about the facilities, mountain restaurants and attractions due to open along with the cancellation guarantee and preventative and safety measures.
Not only for mini mountaineers: the three new via ferratas at Laudeck castle
What's the best way to conquer a castle? Simply climb the rock on which the castle stands! This is simple to do on the easy-to-climb rock at Laudeck castle in Ladis. And perfectly safe as well. This is where you will find three short and perfectly safe via ferretas leading up to the castle. They all have very melodious names Via Claudia Augusta (blue = easy), Pons Laudes Steig (red = medium) and Laudecksteig (black = difficult). Climbing enthusiasts of all ages and abilities will meet with the perfect challenge here. And once they reach the top, a real reward awaits them: a hearty snack at Rauthof guesthouse – and a wonderful panoramic view down into Inntal valley and across to Kaunertal valley. Please note: a full set of via ferrata equipment including a climbing harness, via ferrata set and climbing helmet is required for the three via ferratas. And if you like challenges of an even more vertical kind, why not practice first at the Rappenwand Family Climbing Crag below Serfaus.
All roads lead to Rome, and a new single trail leads to Serfaus: the Jochtrail
Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis has an almost legendary reputation among mountainbikers. Not only because of the magnificent bike park to be found here, but also because of the perfectly signposted network of trails. The gondola lifts take MTBers to the mountains around Serfaus, Fiss and Ladis. A highlight in the truest sense of the word is the top Schönjochbahn cable car station at 2,440 metres above sea level. The new Jochtrail starts here on Fisser Joch ridge: the 5.8 kilometre long high trail offers a host of single trail fun and forms a direct connection from Fiss to Serfaus for mountainbikers. The medium difficulty single trail is made up of a combination of natural trail and north shore elements in the form of exhilarating wooden structures which you can detour as well. And if you fancy a break en-route, the Feel-good Stop on Mittlerer Sattelkopf is the perfect place for you. Here you will find loungers that invite you to put your feet up and benches for having a snack and, of course, a fantastic mountain panorama.
For little and large explorers: Georama Lassida and the Source Trail
Fossils at 2,350 meters above sea level? Yes, but only in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis! Everything revolves around rocks, minerals and fossils in the area around Lassida mountain restaurant. The smaller archaeologists among the guests can go on a tour of discovery with a shovel and brush in their hand in the extensive excavation area – and uncover many a prehistoric relic in the Georama Lassida alpine family adventure world. And once the little fossil hunters have tried out their funny stone balls at the different play stations, they can test their balance on the Motor Skills Trail on the way back to the mountain restaurant. Where they will find their parents waiting – nice and relaxed!
Fancy taking off into the mountains and enjoying the water? Then it’s off to the new Source Trail! This high-altitude buggy-safe hiking trail leads gently from Fisser Joch to the Komperdell in Serfaus. Edutainment stops along the way tell stories about water – and wave beds placed directly in the avalanche barriers invite you to relax together.
The "Super. Summer. Card.": not new, but always worth it
Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis asks its holiday guests the same question every year: "What would you like more of?" Action perhaps? More views? More pleasurable moments? Or more mobility? Then don't forget to take advantage of the "Super. Summer. Card." for extra freedom of movement between the three villages and up the mountains. Every guest receives this service card when they book accommodation in Serfaus, Fiss or Ladis. It means that all the gondola lifts open along with the hiker's bus and numerous children's adventure experiences can be used free of charge.
