Summer Season in the Mountains
Hiking tours, Durlassboden reservoir, Western riding, paragliding, cross-country skiing and Nordic Walking tracks, a high ropes garden as well as surf and sailing school activities promise great diversity during your holidays in Gerlos. It is the perfect starting point for active moments and sunshine – discover the diversity of summer. In spring, summer and autumn numerous lifts and mountain railways as well as the free hiking bus take mountain bikers and hikers a bit closer to the peaks.
The fresh spring water of the Durlassboden reservoir gets warmer during the summer months – the water temperature reaches approx. 21 degrees and is great for bathing, sailing, fishing and cruising across the lake in a paddleboat. Relax on the lawn at the lake with large playground and BBQ facilities or enjoy an idyllic walk around the lake where you have many options to stop by: Gasthof Finkau inn, Bärschlagalm pasture hut and the Seestüberl on the dam crest. The Riederklamm adventure park promises 100% adrenaline kicks – learn how to climb or improve your technique on various tracks for different ability levels. True highlights are the two Flying Fox routes which take you at 80 meters above the ground across the Riederklamm gorge.
