Rope yourself up, climb, abseil - pick your edelweiss

Goodbye big city, hello nature! The steepest rock faces of the Ahrntal valley and the Dolomite mountains are awaiting you.

Big cities rarely offer any other alternatives than climbing gyms. Climbing outdoors, in fresh air and on steep natural rock, is a totally different experience. Students will be shown the most important knots and securing techniques in small groups. Our climbing parks offer numerous opportunities for spending fun hours outdoors. A great number of different routes at all levels of difficulty, all of them absolutely safe, offer endless opportunities. Some routes are difficult enough to keep you on the ground at first, not knowing where to start, while others are fairly easy, quickly filling participants with a sense of achievement, making them hungry for more and look for new challenges. It is always nice to see how students start to push each other to give their best and to master up all their courage. They start to help each other and discover the meaning of trust - trust in themselves, in others, and in each other.

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?

All participants will abseil from the castle keep - 40 metres own into a gaping void.

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?
