Other Alpine Activities

Dirt bikes and Devil karts
Great for adult fun as well as for the youngsters! Riding vehicles with oversized tyres and beefed up brakes down a mountain course is immense fun and can be as fast and hairy (or slow and sedate) as you want it to be. The ski lifts are open to take you and your Dirt Bike or Go Kart back up to the top of the mountain again, so there are more “downhill thrills” as opposed to an uphill struggle!

The Luge
Immense fun! It can be as fast (or slow) as you dare to go! Each luge has a hand brake to control the speed of the car, and drivers can choose how exhilarated they want to feel! The luge suits all ages (especially the adults) because you can control your own speed for the sheer buzz of it! Parents can accompany young children on their laps.

Fishing
Get away from it all and leave the crowded fishing from the UK behind. All can be fished with a permit for around 10 Euros a day. Fishing shops are nearby for tackle hire and extra equipment, guides, permits etc.

Quad Biking
Quad bike rides are offered for all ages, with adult bikes and children’s mini quads. Beginners are welcome and sessions starts at half hour in length.

4×4 Driving
The Alps have world-renowned off-road driving courses and devoted fraternity of four wheel drive buffs. You can join an instructor for an hour of thrilling driving around the course, where you will learn off-road techniques when encountering various obstacles, such as deep water, steep inclines, berms and banks.
