Holidays at Ratschings and surroundings

Ratschings is a young community originating from ancient settlements. The village is located at the south of the Alps and includes the three valleys Ridnauntal, Ratschingstal, Jaufental and the Jaufen Mountain Pass. All valleys are limited by mountains at the end. Numerous hiking paths and sunny pastures await you.

Ratschings is part of the Alpine Pearls Association promoting holidays without a car. During your stay you can use the busses, trains or taxis. A hiking shuttle brings you to your preferred hiking area.

The Gilfenklamm Ravine with high marble rock walls is an exciting hike with a secured path. A very special scenario which you should not miss out on. An incredibly deep ravine, a 15 m high waterfall, bridges, steps and viewpoints await you on your hike through the 400 m long ravine.

Ratschings-Jaufen cable cars in summer
The Ratsching—Jaufen cable cars bring you up to vast alpine pastures stretching from Jaufen Mountain Pass to the end of the valley. Enjoy the unspoiled nature, the quietness, and the many hiking possibilities. Easy walks to traditional huts or extended pasture hikes and demanding mountain tours: the choice is yours.

Ratschings-Jaufen ski resort
The Ratschings-Jaufen ski resort reaches an altitude of 2150 m and offers modern cable cars and a snow-safe skiing area. 8 comfortable cable cars, 25 km of slopes, a Funpark, a toboggan run, and a cross-country track await you. Snowboarders find everything they long for in the Funpark, while children can learn how to ski in the Skiland. Traditional huts offer tasty South Tyrolean food and après ski fun.

Ratschings and the Ridnauntal Valley are a true paradise for cross-country skiers with an amazing mountain scenery in the background. 65 km of cross-country tacks for beginners and professionals await you.
