Active outdoor holidays for old and young

Enjoy the great Alpine outdoors at the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl

There is no better starting place to discover the many different sides to the Ötztal Alps than the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl, with a huge range of sporting activities and adventures available in the mountains around Obergurgl.

Hiking and Nordic walking right up to the edge of the glacier! The Ötztal Valley's diverse fauna and flora is a fascinating experience at any time of the year. If you listen closely you may even hear the unmistakable whistling of marmots and the bleating of sheep grazing on the high pastures.

Walking from hut to hut is a great way to enjoy the Alpine landscape during a trek lasting one or several days. The Ramolhaus at over 3000m is the perfect base camp with fine food and a warm, welcoming atmosphere.

Mountain biking: The Ötztal Valley is a mecca for mountain bikers! Conquer the imposing peaks on two wheels and enjoy the fresh air as you whizz back down.

Canyoning and rafting: Navigating your way through canyons and along raging mountain rivers is an adrenaline-pumping experience second to none. Not for the faint-hearted!

Cave trekking: Explore the fascinating networks of underground caves in the Ötztal Valley and discover what lies below the region's beautiful mountains.

Golf: Guests staying at the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl can choose between a wide range of golf courses in Tyrol and over the border in South Tyrol. For a little Mediterranean flair try teeing off at the golf club in the charming Italian town of Merano.

Motorcycle tours: A journey along the Timmeljoch High-Alpine Road is an absolute must for all motorcycle fans.

Horse riding: Born and bred in Tyrol, the Haflinger horses at the Edelweiss & Gurgl Riding Stables are friendly and sure-footed, making them ideal for both exploring the mountains and perfecting dressage and jumping in the indoor riding hall with the help of expert instructors.

Sports programme for children and teenagers: Horse riding, hiking, rock climbing, swimming – youngsters certainly won't be bored on holiday in Obergurgl!
