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.
