Summer experiences on the water

Rafting

Rafting downstream on waves, rapids and riffles creates a massive adrenalin rush. This is no sport for hydrophobics, since there is hardly another sport where you really get to know the river.

 

 

 

 

Family rafting courses!? Sounds like a crazy idea of putting the whole family into a plastic raft, although rafting is not necessarily a rampant battle with the white water. With experienced and certified guides you can conquer the raging waves of the river Inn in the Imst Gorge or the Tösener Gorge, while the real tough guys may test the highest level of rafting on the river Sanna or the Ache in Ötztal. On a more peaceful pirates’ tour small kids can get a taste of adventures on the river.

 

 

 

Canyoning

Long before just a reckless form of self-entertainment of some crazy guys, nowadays a must-do at least once in a lifetime for every outdoor enthusiast.

Canyoning is a perfect mix of hiking, climbing and abseiling, however demands surefooted adventurers without question. Jumping into foaming waterfalls and seemingly unknown depths, this could seem a sport of unreasonable risk, but the perfectly trained guides, who know every little footstep on the way, always guarantee safety and the unforgettable memories for everybody.

The diverse gorges, waterfalls and mountain streams of the Tiroler Oberland offer a perfect ground for canyoning, which is also possible for absolute beginners. All you need is good coordination and willing to try something new.

There are plenty of outdoor companies in the valley organizing tours on different difficulty levels.

BEACH IN RIED

Yes, summer holiday in the mountains doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to forget about going to the beach, which is pretty good news for the kids. And adults may also feel tempted to lie on the lakeside after a few active days. Thanks to its 2,5 acres water surface this is one of the top destinations of the region in the summer.

Water slides, pedal boats, water park and even a small island guarantee a day full of fun for everybody. For the little ones there is even more to explore with a giant play ship, a tree house, an eagle’s nest and a giant swing also set on the beach. Entry is free of charge with the Summercard.

WATER PARK IN PRUTZ

The water park in Prutz offers the families a 42 m long water slide, 3 pools, counter-current pool, a wave pool, a children’s pool and a 15 000 m2 meadow. Entry is free of charge with the Summercard.
