Summer, sunshine and endless possibilities

Hiking holidays in South Tyrol – walking into happiness

Welcome to South Tyrol, the hikers’ dream destination! How about a leisurely walk to the meadows covering the sunny slopes of Mt. Plose? Or would you rather challenge the rocky peaks of the Dolomites? Whatever your choice, the Fernblick is conveniently located in the Eisacktal uplands to offer you a perfect base camp for your trekking or cycling pursuits.

Exploring South Tyrol’s mountains

The St. Leonhard circular trail, starting right in front of our hotel, leads though shady woodland and sunny meadows and offers a stunning panorama featuring the Dolomites, the Zillertal Alps glaciers and bright blue skies. It takes two hours to complete this leisurely hike and get back to Hotel Fernblick. Another tip? Take the lifts to reach Mount Plose, where you can choose from a variety of trails running the gamut from unchallenging meadow walks to exciting climbs up the Gabler, Telegraph or Plose peaks.

Mountain bike tours in the Eisacktal valley

We are the ideal starting point for mountain bike tours on the Plose: Bike to the valley station of the cable car to St. Andrä, let yourself be taken up the mountain - and then bike to the Rossalm, for example. Or do you want to be more adventurous? Then the Plose Single Trail will lead you down into the valley in steep curves. Or experience flows and Whistler feeling on the 4 new lines built in 2018 by the Whistler makers from Gravity Logic? That's pure adrenaline!

Swimming, horse riding, paragliding & more

Whether in our outdoor panoramic pool, the Lüsen lake or the Acquarena waterpark in Brixen, you will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy a refreshing dip. By the way, remember that BrixenCard holders enjoy free 3-hour admission to the Acquarena outdoor pool (Sundays and public holidays excluded). If you are seeking to spice up your holiday with a bit of adventure, options range from tandem paragliding flights on Mt. Plose to horse riding in St. Leonhard – there is something to suit every taste!

Summer events in Brixen

Every Thursday night in July and August the historic centre of Brixen comes alive with the Summer Emotions festival. Residents, visitors and live music fill the ancient alleys, while gastronomic stalls offer a variety of local (and not so local) delicacies. Connoisseurs can also look forward to a number of wine-themed events focusing on the finest white wines of the Eisacktal valley.
