The whole family can go for a walk and relax on a trail circuiting the Wolfsee, a reservoir in Fiss built for artificial snow making. In the upper reaches of the tree line up to 2000 metres, enjoyment trails switch over to hiking trails leading to panorama platforms with marvellous vistas. If you take the cable car to the Komperdell midway stationg in Serfaus, you can continue on the Panorama Enjoyment Trail towards the Moseralm and Ladis without any major differences in altitude but with a wonderful view of numerous summits around Fiss.
The Serfauser Sauser
At the Sunliner valley station offers adventure loves a rather different perspective of the mountain world - from 85 metres above the ground. This is made possible by a special steel wire rope construction enabling a panoramic flights in four intervals at a top speed of 65km/h!
Experience the adventure of flying with the Fisser Flieger - a kite like aircraft that swoops across the mountain meadows near the Moseralm. Four passengers are secured with hang-glider belts and then hoisted up backwards at 40km/h. Then it's hold-on-to-your-hat time as the descent is twice as fast, with the device reaching speeds of up to 80km/h. The Fisser Flieger races over the alpine meadows 8 to 47 metres above the ground giving you a breathtaking sensation of flight.
Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis provides an attraction for climbers of all ages with its X-trees forest rope course. While the younger family members master Murmlis Schnupper Parcours at 1.50 metres off the ground, children of 110cm and above in height are allowed to venture up to the realm of the squirrel and the woodpecker. Amidst huge pines, climbers with a head for heights can reach a height of up to 14 metres.
For those looking for something more then check out the Family Climbing Crag where experts and experts to be can choose from an array of climbing routes. The climbing rock near the hamlet of St Georgen below Serfaus is suitable for both beginners and sport climbers as it has 19 different climbing routes ranging from difficulty levels III to VII.
The climbing tower at the Mini & Maxi Club in Fiss-Ladis and the climbing wall at the entrance to Serfaus provide for even more high flying adventure.
A journey in to the past of Serfaus' smugglers
Once upon a time, there was a great deal of smuggling in the area surrounding the Tyrolean villages of Serfaus, Fiss and Ladis in the Upper Inn Valley. Since then, the holiday resort has dedicated a hiking route to that exciting and dangerous era known as the Smugglers Trail.
Coffee, cigarettes, saccharin and nylon stockings are just a few of the treasures that were sneaked over the border via secret, ever changing routes from Samnaun in Switzerland all the way to Innsbruck. In the Summer, smuggling was more tedious than in Winter, when most of the distance could be covered in skis, but it was also less dangerous.
Visitors to the holiday resort can now follow one of the same trails set out on an exciting journey into the past and learn about the tricks of Serfaus' smugglers. The six hour hike requires a certain degree of fitness and agility. The differences in altitude are easily manageable though thanks to the Komperdell and Lazid cable cars at the beginning and at the end of the tour.

The hikes lead over beaten tracks past tree stumps, mountain meadows in bloom and streams, grazing cows and lively marmots. It is suitable for children and yet full of adventure.
