We visited Rauris in July last year and our local host recommended we get in contact with X-fun Rauris as they provide a variety of different outdoor activities perfect for families and young children.
We opted for the 'Adventure program' which included three activities; Bockerl, downhill scooter and climbing garden.
The Bockerl, a small skateboard like thing with three small wheels running down the middle, was exhilarating. It was the first time any of us had experienced anything like it, a totally new and unique experience. The backdrop wasn't too bad either- stunning mountain valley views.
Helpful tip: make sure to take old shoes for this activity as the soles of your shoes will be put to the test.
The downhill scooter tour took place up the mountain. We all rode a separate gondola up the mountain and were responsible for our individual scooters. The tour itself ran from the top gondola station to the bottom of the mountain at Kreuzboden side. A short scoot back at the end saw us back to where we started. Again, adrenaline was pumping as we navigated the mountain paths and dodged the grazing cows. Our kids loved it!
Lastly was the climbing garden which incorporated 3 elements; the parkour where you were suspended in the trees having to navigate your way around the obstacles; a huge swing wherein we all had to work together as a family to hoist one member into the air before they let go and swung back to the ground; and a wooden climbing pole that you free feel from after having climbed to the top. A great experience for the whole family and a personal favourite of mine.
All the activities lasted between 1.5- 2hours and were with a guide. The guides themselves are all really friendly and ready to help out and share their stories and local knowledge.
We definitely want to visit again and try the remaining activities they have to offer. Thanks for a great experience guys!!
