Hiking in South Tyrol - between the Tauferer Ahrntal/Valli di Tures ed Aurina and the Dolomites
 

So many three-thousanders, such steep rock faces, and opportunities hardly found anywhere else

Put on your hiking boots and don't miss a single part of it! South Tyrol is a place for hikers and you cannot visit this amazing speck of land without getting a taste of the best it has to offer - the beauty of its alpine world. In the Tauferer Ahrntal/Valli di Tures ed Aurina alone, 84 three-thousanders line the largest nature reserve on a stretch in Europe. 850 kilometres of hiking paths cover the valley and its mountains like a spider's web. Between the town of Bruneck/Brunico and the farthest end of the Ahrntal valley, there are more than 70 farmed alpine pastures with chalets that welcome hikers, and 7 high alpine mountain shelters. Furthermore, the valley has 120 sources of drinking water, 35 mountain lakes and innumerable perkily burbling mountain streams and brooks. The Ahrntal is the most northern valley in South Tyrol, the pleasant country right after the Brenner pass, on the borderline between Austria and Italy. The valley is inhabited by approximately 150,000 South Tyroleans (which tend to seem a lot grumpier and more reserved than they actually are), 10,000 cows, and a few oxen. If you want to get an authentic taste of this place, you have to do it in the right pace, and that is by foot. Only the slowest type of travelling - walking - will allow you to take it all in and understand it. All our tours, including the ones in the Dolomites (e.g. UNESCO world natural heritage sites such as the Drei Zinnen/Tre Cime di Lavaredo ("three merlons/peaks of Lavaredo") and Lake Prags (Pragser Wildsee/Lago di Braies), an impressive mountain lake), are oriented towards the capabilities of our guests and can be adapted in length and level of difficulty. Our tours offer a lot of different experiences. Join us on a hike through the fantastic landscape of a beautiful county to experience nature in a way you never have before.

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?

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?
