Merano/Meran and the surrounding villages in the area offer extensive possibilities for fun outdoor activities and sports. Paragliders can get a bird’s-eye view of the mountains. Reaching the heights is also possible at the high rope courses in the villages of Terlano/Terlan and Scena/Schenna, and in Val Senales/Schnalstal Valley.
A truly unique experience is a rafting tour on the Passer mountain river. Together with a guide, the entire family can ride the roaring swirls and rapids. Tarzaning in a gorge of the Passer and joint canoeing are also action-packed group activities available in the area. River Boating also takes place on the nearby Etsch river. Here, the family itself can pilot a rubber dinghy from the village of Postal/Burgstall downstream to the south.
