It is almost like flying backwards in the claws of a giant eagle: you look down at the valley while you are securely pulled on an 800-metre long rope 200 metres above the ground in the direction of the Gschöllkopf mountain. And then you are off, zooming at 85 kilometres an hour back down to your starting point with the “AirRofan” skyglider. An experience to release plenty of adrenaline – at absolutely no risk.
Getting there: from the south access to the Rofan is via the Inn Valley motorway. From the north take the Achen Pass. The bottom station of the Rofanbahn cable car is located directly on the Achenseestrasse near Maurach. Adequate parking is available. In just five minutes you are whisked from 980 metres to the top station at 1840 metres, located in the immediate vicinity of the Erfurter Hut and the Rofan mountain Inn.
The start of this summer tobogganing experience is at 1500 metres, right next to the middle station of the Imst cable car. After just a few metres come the first surprises: waves, steep curves and fast bends await the breathless passengers. But there is more fun to come, especially the jumps with a drop of up to 6 metres!
Alone or in the two-seater, the Alpine coaster offers a thrilling ride downhill. The views too are fantastic: nature and the action spectacle of the Imst Alpine Coaster make a great combination.
The main attraction at the Hexenwasser is the 450-metre long course of the “Hexenwasser” waterway from its source at the Gasthof Hochsöll down to the Stöcklalm. Gullies, a water maze, climbing pools, a barefoot path and stone mills – a total of more than 60 different attractions – offer children all kinds of adventure as an antidote to boredom. The water is never more than 30 cm deep: everything has been designed with children in mind and here even the smallest can play to their hearts’ content.
Parents can meanwhile relax in the Kneipp pool or tackle Austria's longest “barefoot route”, massaging the reflex zones over rocks, grass and mulch. Another highlight is the magnificent panoramic views of 70 mountain peaks from the “Hohe Salve”! This unique view is complemented by Austria’s first rotating panoramic terrace, fifteen sundial stations (history of time) and a wind harp.

The high ropes course of the Climbing AREA lets the brave balance and climb at 27 metres above ground level, or explore their own limits on the giant climbing wall. For an impressive finish, try the “Mega Swing” or a bird’s eye view of AREA 47 from the 350-metre long “Flying Fox”. It then gets wet and wild, rafting on the Ötztaler Ache and the River Inn or canyoning through the rugged and romantic gorges of the Tyrolean mountains, which are also an Eldorado for mountain bikers and mountaineers.
Getting there: take the A12 Inntal motorway via Innsbruck – Ötztal exit – B186 Ötztal main road – first exit at the roundabout
Wearing helmet and waterproof you can penetrate a lit section of the Spannagel cave. You get a wonderful impression of the cave and can appreciate its sheer size. The tour guides clearly explain how the cave was formed.
We offer cave trekking in the Spannagel cave in both summer and winter! You can penetrate deep into the cave system and, depending on the tour, you will abseil into the cave, climb and crawl or skim over deep chasms with a Flying Fox: a special experience for sports enthusiasts who are free of claustrophobia. The cave itself is beautiful, with everything you could wish for: stalagmites, stalactites, coloured marble, sinter formations, crystals, etc. Some 10 kilometres of the Spannagel cave have been explored so far, but it is believed that this only represents a fraction of the system. You can join us to climb through and marvel at part of the cave system.
An ice cave was discovered two years ago just below the top of the Hintertux glacier. On closer inspection, it was discovered that the cave winds deep into the Hintertux glacier and can also be entered. Since that time guided tours have been available in the ever-changing ice palace located at a depth of up to 25 metres below the ski slopes, where you can penetrate a unique crystalline world. Glittering ice crystals, bizarre ice formations, deep chasms and small glacial lakes all amaze the eyes of the visitor. A natural phenomenon that is not to be missed.
The adrenaline boost in the Zillertal! Abseiling requires you have no fear of heights, because here it is a full 120 metres down into the gorge! The good news is that you do not have to climb down the steep rock wall, but are lowered into the gorge by a guide using a kind of ropeway, allowing you to enjoy the airy views and impressive gorge to the full. Then it’s back to civilization with a walk of some 30 minutes along the stream bed.
For all those who like water and are looking for an alternative to canyoning or rafting, we recommend our tubing tour. Fun and action for all the family! Everyone gets their own tube, then off we go through the rapids of a mountain stream. There is of course full instruction beforehand with training in the correct way to behave on the tyre and in the water. Then we take on the wild water passages of the beautiful Zemmschlucht Gorge in the upper Ziller Valley.
Para-gliding and hang-gliding enthusiasts come to the beautiful Ziller Valley from all over Europe. The reason: excellent flying conditions and stunning mountain views! You too can gain a bird’s eye view of the Ziller Valley.
A tandem flight with a para-glider is an unforgettable experience for both young and old. We start on the Penken, Mayrhofen’s local mountain, and take the gondola with the pilots to just under 2100 metres, then it’s a short distance to where you take off with your pilot. Landing is soft and no problem for passengers. Soaring above the Ziller Valley is an experience that is hard to put into words: just why you should try it! Our team consists solely of local pilots who know the area and weather conditions. Your safety is vital, so we only work with professionals who have many years of flight experience, including competitions. Children from 4 years of age allowed.

Then you go to the basic platform, 12.5 metres above ground level, and from there onto the Mammoth Tour. The first challenge is the Nepal bridge, then we continue for the remaining 2.5 hours or so at a height of 17 metres. The exercises are divided into different triangles, with each triangle featuring an easy or a difficult exercise. On this tour there are also two partner exercises and a final jump or swing from a height of 17 metres. The Mammoth Tour is open to anyone with a minimum height of 1.45 metres.
