Visitors to Tirol wishing to keep a cool head even in summer can do so by visiting the many swimming lakes and outdoor pools in the holiday regions. Hardy souls can take a bracing dip in one of the mountain lakes while the lakes further down in the valley offer a more relaxing bathing experience complete with lush sunbathing lawns.
There are few better things to do on a hot summer's day than dangling your feet in cooling water or diving head-first into a mountain lake. Tirol's many lakes and outdoor pools, surrounded by stunning mountain scenery, are the perfect place to do just that. Water temperatures reach up to 27 degrees Celsius in summer. Aquatic adventures include not only lakes and pools but also mineral springs, water sports facilities and boat hire.
Swimming is just one of many water-based activities available. The larger lakes in the region offer sailing, while youngsters and the young at heart can try out the latest sports such as blobbing at one of the adventure pools. Many indoor pools also have their own spa & beauty facilities. What are you waiting for? Time to take the plunge!
