Riding holidays

Explore the Ötztal Valley on the back of a beautiful Haflinger

Haflinger horses are ideal for riders of all ages and abilities thanks to their friendly nature and calm temperament. The horses are easily recognisable with their silky smooth coat and blonde manes. Native to mountainous regions like the Ötztal Valley, they are sure-footed, strong and determined. Our professional instructors will be happy to show beginners the ropes and join advanced riders on hacks into the landscape around the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl.
