The height of summer
Calling all mountaineers!
What would a holiday in the Tyrolean mountains be without a climbing adventure or two? Via ferratas, a rope garden, climbing garden and of course the indoor climbing wall in case of inclement weather. Bouldering, climbing, multi-pitch climbs… What are you in the mood for today? Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis has the perfect offer for families and couples, for experienced climbers and for beginners. Once you have overcome your reservations and reached those dizzying heights, you’ll be hooked for life!
A natural high
Put on your climbing shoes, check your harness, dip your hands into the chalk bag…. And then it’s just you and the rock face. The family climbing garden of St. Georgen-Rappenwald in Serfaus is all about conquering your fear. Beginners can get a taste for climbing on easy routes, while experienced climbers can tackle the overhangs. The climbing rock offers 19 routes of varying levels of difficulty. The lower part of the rock is flat, with small handholds that are perfect for kids to practice their skills. Further up, steep overhangs provide an athletic challenge and that much-coveted adrenaline rush.
Climbing tower, climbing wall and boulder hall
The climbing tower at the Mini&Maxi Club in Fiss-Ladis and the climbing wall at the entrance to the village of Serfaus are perfect for families with kids.
Climbing lessons are warmly recommended to anyone who would like to try this sport to master the safety basics. In the Alpine schools of Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis, climbing courses and taster sessions are on offer. In case of inclement weather, the PlayIN indoor play & climbing world in Serfaus is a great alternative. The Spider Web, the Geometrix Lines climbing towers and a boulder room with a range of obstacles, an interactive laser game and gigantic softplay area are well worth a visit (or several!). A play paradise right next to the valley station of the Komperdellbahn in Serfaus, where the little ones can burn off steam while the parents chill out in the relaxation area.
Climbing in the treetops
Forest rope garden
Climbing high among the treetops – that’s the X-Trees forest rope garden in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis.
Find your balance among the trees, feel nature, hug a tree or two – climbing in the forest rope garden in Serfaus is more than just exercise: It is an outdoor adventure that gets you up close and personal with nature. The forest rope garden is suitable even for very young children. The “Murmli Schnupper Parcours” is a custom-made route for children up to 1.50 metres. Taller kids (from 1.10 metres) can go up all the way!
Climbing trail with exercises
The X-Trees rope forest garden in Serfaus takes you to heights of up to 14 metres, high among the treetops. The routes have varying levels of difficulty and are clearly marked by colour. Climbers can choose between 12 routes with 100 exercises along the way. Younger and older climbers will get the adrenaline rush they’ve been looking for: Balancing, climbing, crawling, all while perfectly secured with carabiner shackles and harness, you will make your way from platform to platform through the branches.
Once you’ve made it through the Spider Net and the wobbly Indiana Jones Bridge, you can whiz back down to solid ground on the Flying Fox.
Via ferrata tips
A word of warning: A via ferrata is not a normal hiking trail! If this is your first time on a via ferrata, make sure you go with an experienced guide.
The correct equipment (climbing set, harness, helmet, appropriate shoes) is mandatory. Always check the weather forecast before a climb.
Anton-Renk Waterfall in Fendels:
Ambitious via ferrata for advanced climbers, with two overhanging key points. Modern design, steel rope (pleasant to hold on to, correctly tensioned), rock anchors (mostly eye-lug anchors), footholds (brackets). No emergency descent.
Goldweg and Tirolerweg Trails in Nauders:
Two fantastic via ferratas that may be reached easily by the Bergkastel cable car line. Both are sophisticated day tours. Experience, sure-footedness and good fitness levels are required. Do not underestimate the descent. Both are classic gneiss routes that partly run along the ridge, offering amazing views across and down, of Lake Reschensee and the Goldsee Lakes respectively. No emergency descents!
