Rafting + Canyoning
Speedy rapids and bubbling rollers - there's hardly time left for a glimpse of the idyllic landscape that passes by the river's left and right. For sure the adventure-seeking have an advantage while the immense power of the waves tosses the boat around and the water spray in your face has a quite refreshing effect. The Ötztal is considered Europe's number one center for whitewater athletes. The "Imster Schlucht" ravine ranks among the most frequented river sections on the continent and is just perfect also for beginners. On the Ötztaler Ache mountain brook experienced rafting fans will find crisp white water sections that are technically challenging.
The highest point in Tyrol
The Ötztal valley has everything from gruelling forest routes to rocks leading up from the meadows. Everyone can find their personal favourite route here among the 20 climbing gardens and 7 fixed ropes routes with 750 official single rope routes, 58 multi-rope routes, 18,829m of altitude to climb, 12,552 hooks and anchor point and difficulty ratings of 2-11.
SWINGING, HAND OVER HAND, CLIMBING
Balancing from one shaky tree trunk to the next, encircled by the treetops. Or gliding over the river on a cable winch to the other shore. What are we talking about? Doubtlessly about the high ropes courses and outdoor parks in Ötztal. Varied degrees of difficulty represent a true challenge even for experts and experienced sportspeople. But it also makes a unique highlight for beginners and children as they conquer the easier ropes and obstacles with a guide and the appropriate safety equipment. However, you should have a good head for heights to enjoy the awesome vistas to the full.
