MOUNTAIN BIKE IN VALLE AURINA
This programme includes a guided mountain bike tour to Taufers Castle, in the Tures and Aurina Valley, with a guided tour of the castle and abseiling down its more than 40-metre-tall look-out tower. It’s a real adrenalin rush of a programme, offering the perfect blend of sport and culture.
The aim of the mountain bike tour is to make participants more considerate and responsible for each other, promote cooperation and give them the chance both to guide and follow. It will also encourage them to push themselves out of their comfort zones, building their self-esteem. The tour of Taufers Castle is brimming with historical content, which we knowledgeably recount to our youngsters in a clear and intelligible manner.
The abseiling at the end will increase their awareness of their bodies and help them push themselves further as part of extraordinary activities, encouraging concentration and fostering trust, responsibility and self-esteem. Taking one’s feet off the ground has convinced many a person of their inner strength!
