Canyoning is one of the most exciting summer water sports in the Ötztal. It involves climbing steeply-angeld clefts set in a steep-sided valley, finding a way down to a rocky river bed and making your way back down to the yalley by way of river - sometimes scrambling throuhg rapids, being swept along natural rock chutes and abseiling down waterfalls.
You are with guides who know the river and waterfalls like the backs of their hands and choose the route according to the group's abilities and preferendes. Jumps from heights up to 16 meters wait you on the secured routes. This blend of water and rocks, climbing and hiking, jumping and swimming is a truly unique challenge for all senses.
In what is probably the most exciting high ropes course in Austria you get to enjoy that super feeling which sets in when you conquer your limits! At a dizzying 27 metres up you proceed below the bridge which goes across the Ötztaler Ache. On swinging tree trunks, swaying platforms and across airy nets. On foot or even on a skateboard. Beneath you is the rushing wild water and the mountains are all around. Concentration and body tension are the order of the day here. Give it a go!
The two most exciting aerial adventures in AREA 47, Flying Fox and Mega Swing, can be booked individually or in combination. Whatever you decide, an ultimate adrenalin kick is guaranteed! The Flying Fox is a 400 metre zip line, which runs across the 20,000 square metre WATER AREA. No problem if the 27 metre high starting point make your legs turn to jelly. One step is all it takes – and you can then enjoy pure thrills and the loveliest birds’ eye views.
