Repelling from the tower of a medieval castle - an adventure for the brave
 

A dizzying experience at the castle of Taufers/Tures. Will you have the guts for the repelling manoeuvre?

If you are left with no other alternative, abseiling is the last thing you can do. What we offer may be physically and technically easy, but it is mentally challenging. Positioning yourself on the sill of the highest window in the keep of the medieval castle of Taufers/Tures in Sand in Taufers/Campo Tures in the Tauferer Ahrntal/Valli di Tures ed Aurina (valley) takes courage - looking down and getting yourself into a 40-metre rappelling manoeuvre even more so! This thrill is not dangerous. The manoeuvre is absolutely safe due to solid and reliable safety devices and measures. You may not be aware of it at first, but the abseiling manoeuvre is an invaluable learning experience, based on educational principles. It is about letting go, about group dynamics, mutual motivation, and also about being able to say "no". For adults, it is about finding their own role within a group. Children and adolescents will learn that they are not subject to peer pressure. They have the right to say "no" in situations in which they feel uncomfortable without losing their face or sinking in the estimation of their friends and classmates. First and foremost, however, it is about the experience - the abseiling from the keep of the castle of Taufers/Tures is an exciting and challenging adventure, combined with a tour of the castle. The offer can also be combined with one of our mountain bike tours.

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?

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?
