Mountain bike tour in the Ahrntal/Valle Aurina including an abseiling manoeuvre at the castle of Taufers/Tures with a view to the Kronplatz/Plan de Corones (mountain)

Triple adventure in South Tyrol including a bike ride, an exciting visit to a medieval castle and a grandiose finale - an abseiling manoeuvre from the castle keep

This programme includes a guided MTB tour to the castle of Taufers/Tures near Sand in Taufers/Campo Tures in the South Tyrolean Ahrntal valley (Valle Aurina), the tour of the medieval castle, and the 40-metre abseiling manoeuvre from the castle keep. This adventurous offer combines sports and culture perfectly. Mountain biking in a group furthers reciprocal attention and responsibility, cooperation, leading and being led, self-conquest and self-confidence. The guided tour through the castle has been designed especially for students; it is historically informative and comprehensible. Finally, the abseiling manoeuvre improves the students' body perception, demands concentration, trust, responsibility and self-conquest. This unusual activity is a borderline experience which is about thinking outside the box, getting your feet off the ground and finding purchase on new ground.

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.

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.

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?

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?
