Tips for active families

 - AllgemeinPublished on 17.06.2019

What activities can you do with your children?

You decided this year your holiday had to take place in Austria, since there are so many great activities to do and so much to experience! Butttt… You´re on holiday with your children, so now you can´t go rafting or canyoning…

At least, that´s what YOU THINK! But it´s actually not the case. When on holiday in Mayrhofen, you can definitely go rafting, canyoning or climbing with your beloved little ones. Mountain Sports Zillertal offers you different possibilities. 

For the water-based sports accounts: if your kids know how to swim and are aged 6 years or older, they are more than welcome to come on an adventure with us (as long as accompanied by an adult).

Family Canyoning
This tour was exclusively created for families with kids. Outfitted with a suit to protect you from the cold and a helmet for extra safety, this variety-packed and adventure-filled expedition will give you a first look at the fascinating sport of canyoning. Great fun for the whole family!

♥ Rafting at the Ziller
This tour starts where the Ziller and Zemm rivers meet in Mayrhofen. After a safety briefing, we will set the boat into the water and the team will get in. We all sit in a single boat as we take on the river with its waves and holes. Rafting is a great opportunity to experience something out-of-the-ordinary.  An exciting adventure for the whole family, with lots of fun and only a minimum risk!

♥ Family Via Ferrata
This family friendly route is particularly suitable for children (anchoring adjusted to child height) and alternates between classic Ferrate terrain (rock faces and walking sections) and interesting high rope course elements. The high rope elements demand both courage and dexterity. They can, however, be avoided as the via Ferrate runs parallel to the walking trail to Gasthof Zimmereben.

⇒With an experienced tandem pilot you can view Mayrhofen with its imposing mountain scenery from above and admire the imposing mountain scenery. Just go for it!

We offer all our activities daily on request at ⇒⇒⇒⇒ Rafting, canyoning, tubing, river bow, via ferrata and many other attractions.
