Too extreme? Of course, there are also easier courses.

In 1991, the most important glacier find in the world was made in the Schnals Valley. You surely know him, the famous “Iceman”. Discover the site where Ötzi was found and learn interesting facts about the flora and fauna, the environment and proper behavior on the glacier.
In summer on foot, in winter with touring skis – experienced mountain guides will accompany you.
Look forward to a compelling story in a spectacular location. The tour is with or without high alpine experience a must for your action vacation!
CLIMBING ROUTE "HOACHWOOL
HIGH UP, ALONG OLD WATER CHANNELS
Interesting and not to be underestimated: This is how this via ferrata in Naturno can be described. Here, with numerous exposed places, you must not suffer from fear of heights under any circumstances. Arm strength as well as foot technique are required. In return, you will be rewarded with magnificent views of a beautiful landscape. After about 4.5 hours you’ll reach your destination and have mastered one of the toughest via ferratas in the mountain paradise of South Tyrol. A great incentive, right?
Tip: Junior chef Matthias will be happy to give you a few tips!
FOR RACERS AND DOWNHILLERS
No desire to traipse back down the mountain? No problem – a rapid descent with the mountain carts (NEW since July 2019) is much cooler anyway. On 3 wheels and without any engine you whizz down into the valley: pure fun! Safety is of course guaranteed with the strong brakes and wide wheels. Start at the Lazaunhütte, right next to the mountain station of the Lazaun cable car, where you can also rent the carts directly.
Off to a fast-paced adventure! You’ve probably never been down this fast before … (July to end of September)
