Active holiday in Ötztal

The sports & leisure opportunities during the mountain summer in Gurgl

The active summer holidaymaker in Obergurg-Hochgurgl can look forward to a variety of sporting activities. Alongside the classic hiking, the Ötztal offers great opportunities for climbing, specific biking trails and paths just waiting to be explored. For the modern version of a treasure hunt, geocoaching, our region is ideal. For those preferring to ride high on horseback, the area is perfect and we boast the highest riding stables in Austria.

Horse riding in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl

Tyrols highest riding stables Edelweiss & Gurgl

Galloping through the Tyrolean alpine countryside in summer under a bright blue sky with a view of the Ötztal glaciers – this is a scene that makes every rider’s heart beat faster. Only a stone’s throw away from the hotel is our unique Edelweiss & Gurgl indoor riding arena in Obergurgl, where 17 of our home bred Haflingers trot around. Whether beginner or advanced rider, everyone is welcome here. It makes no difference to our good natured Haflingers, they are on first name terms with all of our guests.
