Fun sports in summer - variety is the spice of life
Fun sports in all varieties are in. And the best thing about it is you don't have to be super fit or a top athlete to do it. Participating in cool adventures safely and having fun together is much more important! Our considerate guides will make sure of that!
Segway - cool, fast and comfortable
Whether you've decided on an informative trip around the village
or you want to discover the countryside around Flachau,
discovering it with the Segway is a unique experience. After a short introduction from our professional guides you can do a few laps on the test circuit and after a short time you'll soon have a feeling for this speedy sports device. Then there is nothing in the way of a great Segway tour!
It's on offer to anyone from 12 years old
and children aged 10 years old only when accompanied by their parents.

Racing downhill with the mountain cart
For all of you who love speed and adventure then a Mountain cart tour has to be part of your holiday. After an easy trip up the mountain with the bus, then once at the top there'll be a short explanation,
time to put on your helmet quickly and then you're off. Over tree stumps, stones and roots you can whiz down to the valley at your own speed.
On the first run down there are often short breaks where the guide will tell you about any "dangers" coming up in the following section. After a short while driving you will already feel more confident and let it run more, take the corners tighter, the wind whistles around your ears, ... At the end of the wild ride there's only one thing to do, catch your breath, then get in the bus again. This ride just feels like I need to do it again!
Kids from 8 years old
can drive their own mountain cart, but one of their parents needs to be in the group. Smaller kids can ride with one of their parents on their mountain cart.
You can book your mountain cart tour here:
Tip from Florian Schwarzenbacher, Sport am Jet: Action on non-sunny days

Mountain skyving - the other type of rounding of a hiking trip
Imagine you're thinking about a hike in Flachau's gorgeous mountain scenery. Tired from the ascent but you're happy and fully content - you've climbed one mountain or another and really enjoyed being on the summit. But something's missing. The ultimate thrill perhaps? The perfect finishing touch! We've got an idea for you - how about mountain skyving? A wild ride down the mountain. This really special bike is made of aluminium
and you can easily carry it up the mountain in your rucksack. Once you reach the top you will get a short instruction
from your guide and then there's nothing to stop you from racing down the mountain.
Mountainskyve can be done by anyone older than 12 years
old.You can book your mountainskyve experience right here:
Skating - with the right technique it's really fun
Under professional guiding you can learn the optimum pace to look good on roller skates. How to take the corners
and the optimum braking technique
is really important - all of these will be passed onto you in the shortest possible time.
For those of you who already have some experience we can offer you another highlight of this type of sport. Where normal roller skates fail, skikes
really kick off. It doesn't matter what type of ground it is, meadow paths, asphalt or cobbles and pavement, with these skikes there literally is no stopping you. Take a closer look at the skikers who complete their laps easily in skating style using long poles. Somehow it reminds you of cross-country in summer.
Inline skating courses can be done by 6 year olds
and older, skiking from 12 years old. Check out your skating course and book here:
Zorbing - rolling in the mega ball
In Flachau you can become a real "zorbonaut". Enter the inside of the huge plastic ball
via a tiny entrance. Put on your belt quickly, calm your nerves, then you're ready to go! As a real "Zorbonaut" you roll down the hill and you can't really recognise whether you can see the blue sky or the green meadow below you as the ball is turning so quickly. That's downhill zorbing, great for going crazy!
For zorbing you need to be at least 130 cm tall. You can book your zorbing adventure right here:
Tip from Rupert Pichler, Fun & Pro Sportcamp: And then there's hydro zorbing - for the "water rats" amongst you
For hydro-zorbing a bucket full of water will be tipped into the zorb ball so that it's slippery and wet. This will get you spinning. On the run and without being held back by a belt you can surf down the hill on the wet surface! Hydro-zorbing is also possible for small kids too!
Lucky-flitzer - roller coaster ride with guaranteed fun
In Flachau you can toboggan all year round! Take a seat in your roller coaster for the ride up and you'll be carried to the top on rails. Once you get to the start the adventure can begin. Before you there are 5 loops and 2 jumps over a length of 1.100 metres.
Further bumps and corners ensure you won't get bored easily. You can control the speed yourself - the maximum speed is 42 km/h.
One ride often isn't enough for this unique fun ride. You will feel butterflies in your stomach as you want to take the next run even faster!
To ride the Lucky Flitzer you need to be at least 8 years old
and 125cm tall.
Children from 3 years old are only allowed to ride with an adult. Prices and opening times »
