Hiking in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis

Are you familiar with this situation? You put one foot in front of the other and you keep going higher and further. You feel your thighs and calves with every step. And the scenic views of the surrounding mountains are so incredibly beautiful that you can’t take your eyes off them. A deep breath and your lungs fill with fresh, crisp mountain air. And then, finally! Between 1,200 and 3,000 metres above sea level, you start to feel the “summit tingle”! That’s how you know you’ve made it to the hiking resort of Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis. 

Hiking variety for all ages in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis

There are 500 kilometres of hiking trails at the holiday resort of Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis. Lush green pastures, harsh rock formations and well-developed hiking trails are waiting for you to explore them.

Route tip for mountaineers

A ridge walk and cable car hopping in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis

On the Schönjoch, hikers can experience a balancing act of the special kind. First, you take the Waldbahn cable car up to the Sunliner and then the Komperdellbahn cable car to the mid station. Just plop down in the cable car and soak up the sun as it gently sways up the mountain. 

The ridge walk across three summits starts at the mid station of the Komperdellbahn cable car. The first leg is also the highest point of the hike: the Vordere Brunnenkopf at 2,685 metres above sea level. Then, you’ll continue to the beautiful scenic viewpoint up on the Oberer Sattelkopf at 2,596 metres. Once you’ve reached the summit, you’re not far from your goal. One more step and you’ll be rewarded with a breath-taking view of Serfaus, Högsee lake, the Komperdell and all the way to the Lazid. Then, it’s time to take some holiday snap shots and a little breather! 

The early bird catches the worm: Start your day early and head up into the Inntal mountains. Watching the sunrise up at the summit and squinting at the first few rays as they climb over the mountain tops – that’ll be a sight to behold! 

Tip: The hike can be reached from the Fisser Joch as well! And in case you’re hesitant to tackle the tour by yourself, you may take part in a guided hike! More info …

Mountain hiking is usually a pretty safe sport and emergency cases are highly rare. But still, you can not preclude happenings such as sudden health problems or getting into bad weather or thunder storms, where you might need immidiate help.

The SOS-system for mountain hikers in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis rests on two columns. Column number one is the hiking map, which you can find inside of the hiking guide. In this map you will find all important signposts with the related numbers. The second column is the SOS-signpost in the terrain itself, on which emergency signs got affixed this spring.

The whole region contains about 500 of these signs, which are provided with green-white labels. These signs show the number of the signposts, the telephone number of the mountain rescue service and the telephone number of the international rescue service, the map datum, the GPScoordinates and the current height above the sea level.

If an emergency situation appears, you can dial the emergency number with your cellphone and give out information about the GPS-coordinates and the map datum (for example: WGS 84). This allows them to find your current position with centimetre precision and the rescue service does not loose any time by searching for an inaccurate declared position.


The app is intendee for all those nature lovers and amateur athletes in Tirol who like to move in the open air and in the mountains and have a smart phone with iOS or Android.
This is the only emergency app that is connected directly to the control center Tirol.

The main functions in an emergency include:

  • Automatic transmission of personal and location data (GPS coordinates) to the control center Tirol via the internet or SMS.
  • Establishing a telephone connection to the control center Tirol.
