If you are into outdoor activities and like to experience the occasional adrenaline kick, your summer holidays here in the Alps can become quite thrilling! For example, you can put your courage to the test with rafting, canyoning, kajaking or paragliding.
Three interesting rivers flow in the vicinity of our hotel – the Ache, the Sanna and the Imster Schlucht – where you can try your hand at rafting, canyoning or kayaking. The Imster Schlucht in particular is an absolute highlight; it is the most popular rafting route in Europe and an absolute must for those who love to jump from dizzying heights into cool waters. Around our active hotel in the Ötztal you can find three attractive rivers for action-packed rafting and canyoning trips. Equipped with wetsuit, shoes, helmet, and life jacket, and guided by an experienced pro, you will live an unforgettable adventure.
From May to October the glacial rivers near our hotel are ideal for kayaking and canoeing. Depending on the water level, you can choose from a variety of challenges and adventurous routes negotiating through ravines and gorges. In the area there is even a professional 350-metre canoe slalom course with 42 gates that can be easily shifted from the shore; the route also includes a finish house incl. Internet connection. From early May to late October, the route can be used for training and racing purposes, free of charge.
If you had rather float on air than on water, however, you can have a go at paragliding.
With tandem flights you can observe the Ötztal from up to 1,350 metres above the ground. The area around our hotel in Austria is particularly popular among paragliders, due to the optimum thermal conditions and, of course, the fantastic mountain views.
