Climbing garden Riederklamm
At the newly built climbing garden Riederklamm you can learn to climb in different difficulty levels on a variety of routes.
Via ferrata Gerlossteinwand
The 380-metre long via ferrata “Gerlossteinwand” leads along a 240-metre high wall on the same-named mountain. It doesn’t only offer Alpine pleasures, but also leads to one of the valley’s most beautiful peaks. Introductory trial climbs for beginners are offered on the new route, categorized as medium difficult, which was constructed by the local mountain rescue team in cooperation with the Zillertal Arena. The local alpine sports schools provide expert tips and accompany beginners on the climb, which can be comfortably reached with the Gerlosstein cable car.
High rope course in Gerlos
Experience pure thrills at the newly built high rope course with 45 stations! After an introduction you can start the adventure while testing your courage and your skill. The high rope course is a series of elements mounted on a group of tree trunks at heights of 10 to 15 meters. This rope course is like an obstacle garden made up of ropes, tightropes and tree trunks that is completed in the same way as a race course. The high emotional tension is created by the height of the elements above the ground.
Tandem paragliding in Gerlos
Feel free like a bird, take off from the airport “mountain” and glide down towards the valley with an experienced pilot. Enjoy the holiday region Gerlos in the Zillertal Arena from a bird’s eye perspective and enjoy the flight down to the village.
