The Upper Inn ValleyWonderful hiking in Austria from our 4 star spa hotel in Ladis, Austria
Ladis rests on the western slopes of the Upper Inn Valley, at a height of nearly 1200m, on what the locals call the ‘sunshine terrace’, a broad expanse of meadows rising slowly southwest through the neighbouring villages of Fiss and Serfaus.
A network of footpaths and cable cars helps us explore this perfect alpine area, taking us through meadows, scattered woodland and beside mountain streams, along ridges and pano ramic paths, even to peaks. The views are often amazing, especially of the permanent snows to the south and east of the Ortler and Oetztal Alps. It is hard to think of another area which offers such varied walking at different grades.
Ladis itself is a quiet Tirolean alpine village with an old fish pond, woodrimmed public fountains, outdoor baking ovens and a 13th century castle standing guard. An Alpine idyll.
The D+ walks on our June 8 departure are for flower lovers and walk at a slower pace.On the two-week D+ holiday departing June 8 only the first week will be for ‘flowers’ and the second will be at D+.
NEW: Nordic Walking from Ladis
Nordic walking is just ordinary walking made up to 40% more effective by the use of specially designed poles and using their upper body as well as your legs. A new cross training walking technique which burns more calories than normal walking, gives a good aerobic workout, strengthens your upper body and reduces stress on the joints whilst generally boosting your fitness.
Why not improve your Nordic Walking experience with great days out in the Austrian, Italian and Swiss border country. Give yourself a good aerobic workout and enjoy great Upper Inn Valley alpine view.
This holiday is aimed at those who take regular exercise and have a reasonable fitness. You will probably have already been introduced to Nordic Walking on one of our UK Nordic Walking holidays. Our walks will be on good tracks but may involve undulating terrain and short uphill sections. Nordic Walking pole hire is included in the holiday price.
