Bridges for one day - Lessons for a lifetime

Let the wind carry away your cares while you are carried across a gorge by zip line

Bridges connect, and those who build them are connected. Like a bridge, an aerial ropeway links point A to point B, bringing them together over what may have seemed an insuperable barrier. It is important that the students solve this task as a team after having been shown how to do it with a small scale model. They will transport the necessary material for the construction to a canyon, and there from one side of the canyon to the other. They will have to find a way to get the rope across the torrent, and will understand the principles behind building a bridge, or an aerial ropeway. They will learn how to install a double-secured construction. Participants will work out all this by themselves, under surveillance of our experienced and specifically trained guides who make sure of the students' safety at all times. Who is going to cross the bridge first once it is built? Who is going first on the zip line? Watch out, teachers - you might get the honour of going first!

Programmes

Nothing ignites enthusiasm and motivation more than play. It also awakens fantasy, and fantasy creates adventures. The amazing mountain world of South Tyrol is going to be our playground, and nature our best teacher. Our programme coaches will unobtrusively teach your students important values and social skills. 
All our programmes (team training, high rope course, mountain biking, climbing, geocoaching) are adaptable for different age groups and are offered all year round.

Team training on a high rope course

Team training on a high rope course

Whole day
Get rid of your dog-eat-dog philosophy and ready for togetherness. Our adventure programme aims at enhancing students' ability to work in a team, their helpfulness and mutual consideration. The high rope course invites students on an adventure, and the tasks which need to be accomplished require them to work together, communicate, and trust each other. Only teams as thick as thieves will be able to achieve their goal.

Bike, castle and rope

Bike, castle and rope

Whole day
We will reach the castle by bike, walk inside and into the tower, climb its stairs, and leave it on a climbing rope. This extraordinary triathlon is not only an adventurous sports challenge - it also allows your students to dive into the exciting history of the Dark Ages. The best part, however, is the rappelling manoeuvre down from the tower - dizzying but absolutely safe! The 40-metre abseiling manoeuvre from the castle keep happens under the watchful eyes of our guides and with the safest equipment available.

Geo-coaching and photo safari

Geo-coaching and photo safari

Half-day event
Going for a walk is not particularly difficult; we all know how to take a stroll. Finding one's way, locating things, and orientating oneself however poses some difficulties to most people. Well-equipped with GPS and maps, your students will start off into nature in small groups. Who will take on responsibility for what? Who will assert himself/herself and take over the group? Who will be able to do best, and which team will be able to cross the finish line first?

Geo-coaching: hike, castle and rope

Geo-coaching: hike, castle and rope

Whole day
Equipped with GPS devices and maps, participants have to find their way from the starting point to the well-known castle of Taufers/Tures in the Ahrntal valley. In order to reach the castle, they will have to make use of both their technical abilities and knowledge. At the castle, an exciting adventure awaits them. All participants will abseil from the castle keep - 40 metres own into a gaping void.

Climbing course on natural rock

Half-day event
Who knows how to knot a figure-of-eight loop? Do you understand the different terms referring to particular moves and techniques on the wall? Can you do a proper and safe abseiling manoeuvre? Nature is the best teacher when it comes to learning rock climbing the proper way. In our climbing parks, groups can try out rock climbing on routes offering different levels of difficulty, always under the watchful eyes of our mountain guides.

Aerial runway, building a zip line

Aerial runway, building a zip line

Half-day event
There is not always a bridge when we need to get to the other side. So we build one to cross a gorge. Or we build an aerial runway. For this project, creativity, resourcefulness and, most of all, teamwork are required. Without these skills, succeeding is impossible. In the end, there will be only one question left: Who's going first?
