Adventure-seeking sports fans are at the right place here.
Paragliders experience the holiday paradise from above
Admiring the Ötztal mountains from a bird's eye view? This is best done on a fabulous paragliding adventure. You feel free like an eagle, high above the valley, at eye level with the mountains and far away from the hustle and bustle on the valley floor. For many, this is the ultimate and truly unforgettable moment. In Ötztal there are several opportunities to take to the skies, either for experienced paragliders or tandem flights with professionals.
