Connoisseurs and climbing-enthusiastic families with a little older children come very close to the vertical on the via ferrata Holderli Seppl in Fernergries along the Rifflbach. The well-secured, easy via ferrata (difficulty level B) was planned and built by the Kaunertal mountain guides. It leads over two suspension bridges next to the waterfall through glittering mica-gneiss rocks. Accessible from the hotel by car or post bus via the Kaunertal Glacier Road. Parking, refreshment facilities and hiking trails for non-mountaineers on site.

From the Ötztal and Pitztal east of the Kaunertal to Nauders on the Reschen Pass in the south, the choice of designated climbing gardens and bouldering blocks is vast. Relevant climbing guides online or in printed form direct our climbing guests from the hotel to the spot of choice. In Quellalpin there is also an indoor bouldering area with kilterboard and short lead routes for beginners.
The Fernergries climbing garden near the Holderli Seppl via ferrata appeals to the whole family with easy to intermediate routes and a small barbecue area. For ambitious climbers, the climbing gardens "Laimo" and "Grünstein" are recommended with a lot of peace and challenging routes such as "Plattensymphonie", "Wiesa-Jaggl" or "Hidden paradise".
High altitude tours lead mountain enthusiasts from the Valley of Mountaineers, as the Kaunertal is also called, crisscrossing the Ötztal Alps. Particularly beautiful tours away from crowded "fashionable peaks" can be found around the Verpeilhütte, which is located in an idyllic side valley of the Kaunertal, and on the Gepatschferner, Austria's second largest glacier. If you need tips, ask the Kaunertal mountain guides.
