Paragliding & Adventure


The excellent thermals and fine views in the Ötztal Valley make paragliding an absolute must for visitors with a head for heights and a strong stomach. Several paragliding centres in the valley offer tandem flights accompanied by a qualified expert. There really is no better way to see the region from a totally new perspective! Most flight takes off next to the Gratlift near the Gaislachkoglbahn cable car, which is just a short walk from the Hotel Bergland.


There are wildwater adventures aplenty on the Rofener Ache, Venter Ache and Ötztaler Ache rivers in the Ötztal Valley. However, the undoubed highlight for wildwater enthusiasts is the 350m professional canoe course in Ötz. We also recommend taking part in one of the many rafting adventures offered by experienced guides in summer.


The Ötztal Card is your golden ticket to the Ötztal Valley – and guests staying at the Hotel Bergland in Sölden receive it free of charge.


There is nothing better on a hot summer's day than a dip in one of the Ötztal Valley's many natural lakes. There are also a number of outdoor swimming pools in Sautens, Oetz, Längenfeld and Haiming. Two of the most popular lakes can be found in Umhausen and at the Piburger See. Take the plunge!
