The small village of Roppen in the Inntal Valley is located between the Ötztal Valley and the Imster Schlucht, a large gorge which is popular with rafting enthusiasts.
Thanks to its mild climate and sunny location, this pretty village has a long fruit-growing tradition. Pears, apples and even grapes are just some of the produce often seen hanging from the trees and vines around Roppen. This village of 1,700 inhabitants in the west of Tirol is the ideal base for holidaymakers who enjoy exploring the mountains. Popular hikes in the region include those leading up to the Roppener Erdpyramiden, a series of fascinating natural earth pyramids emerging from the forest. The area is also well known for kayaking and rafting in the Imster Schlucht gorge as well as all manner of adrenaline-pumping action at the Area 47 extreme sport adventure park featuring a large swimming lake, long waterslides, a diving tower, bouldering walls and a high rope obstacle course. In winter, the closest ski resorts are Imst, Hochoetz and Hochzeiger. With its museums and other cultural attractions, the town of Imst is also well worth a visit.
