Butterflies in your stomach, pulse racing, a feeling of euphoria – some people love the thrill of action sports. Adrenaline junkies in search of the ultimate kick are spoilt for choice Tirol. From whitewater rafting to paragliding, from rock climbing to downhill mountain biking, this region in the heart of the Alps is one huge outdoor playground. At the same time, you don’t have to do something as extreme as bungee jumping in order to feel the buzz. Tirol is home to a number of adventure parks with high-rope obstacles courses, zipwires and hanging bridges high above the ground – plenty to get nerves tingling, but with an added safety factor. The perfect day out for families with children.
