Golfing, paragliding & rafting

Do you want to experience something exceptional during your summer vacation and explore the Alpine nature of the Zillertal in unique ways? With rafting on the rushing Ziller river, you can feel the power of water and promote team spirit while you and your colleagues navigate the pulsing water in the Zillertal. With paragliding and tandem flights with experienced pilots, you can enjoy the best view from the air and get to know the spectacular alpine world and idyllic villages of the Zillertal from a new perspective. Awaiting all golf enthusiasts and those wanting to explore the region on land is the 18-hole Uderns championship course and an incomparable Alpine golf experience!

Golfing at Zillertal Golf Club

It's impossible to imagine a better backdrop for a golf course: Flanked by the peaks of the Zillertal Alps, Uderns Golf Club promises exhilarating tee shots and relaxing tap-ins on the greens. This 18-hole course boasts some truly impressive golf architecture. The Uderns club lies just 3 km from Fügen.

Rafting on the Ziller

When you are rafting, you can truly feel the power of the water and the closeness to nature. It's time to get ready for an amazing adventure: Simply pull on your Neoprene suit and embark on a turbulent journey through the untamed torrents. Rafting demands team spirit and endurance, with as many as 8 people "pulling together" aboard the rubber raft. You'll float past meadows, forests and the valley's idyllic villages, with steep gradients and river rapids promising all the action you could wish for. Rafting is suitable, incidentally, for everyone ages 10 and up.


In this case, the Alpine world will quite literally lie there at your feet: Paragliding gives you the absolute best views of Zillertal Valley! Whether you are up for soloing or prefer a tandem flight: Your starting point for this exhilarating experience is the Spieljoch, the mountain just outside Fügen. Right next to the mountain station of the Spieljoch lift at 1800 m above sea level, your pilot will prepare the equipment and double-check everything. At that point, it's a matter of taking just a few steps and you'll be gliding through the air. During a tandem flight, experienced pilots will control everything. You will drop 1200 vertical meters, until you finally feel "terra firma" back under your feet down in the valley.
