High ropes courses & parks
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.
Ötztal Outdoor Course
The large outdoor adventure course nestles between Sautens and Oetz, close to the Ötztaler Ache mountain brook. Fun and action are guaranteed as the park offers more than just a classic high ropes course. In addition to varied climbing elements, which are skillfully integrated into the forest landscape, several zip lines (Flying Fox) lead straight over the Ötztaler Ache river to the forest ropes course. On a length of up to 200 meters and a difference in height of 30 meters you reach the other shore quickly. Not only the speed but also the rushing waters below promise memorable adrenalin rushes. Those who prefer to cross the Ache brooklet more calmly and well-balanced are recommended to try the more than 50 meter long slackline directly above the roaring river - an equally exciting challenge. In addition to the countless climbing and balancing stations of the high ropes course, sporty visitors cross the cool water and find 60 more exercises in the forest ropes course.
Flying Fox and Ropes Course
High above Längenfeld's valley basin there is another high ropes course waiting for mountaineers and climbing fans. The single stretches comprising via ferrata passages, fun elements and abseiling stages fit seamlessly into the mountain landscape, creating a wonderful blend of adventure and nature exploration. Hand over hand through nets, along ropes and past wooden elements in the craggy rocks. The view of the village and valley floor far below is really unique. Especially the Flying Fox zip lines of the high ropes course are not suitable for the faint of heart - or sensitive stomachs.
On three zip lines with a length of up to 80 meters, daring sportspeople can climb from one cliff to the next with their feet dangling in the air, nothing but stone, boulders and spruce forests below them. An ultimate experience for adventurers who want to add an extra dose of excitement to their summer holiday in Ötztal.
