The ‘wild waters’ of the Möll and Malta valleys offer unforgettable holiday experiences for anyone who is on the lookout for adventure. In specially selected, tried and tested gorges, breathtaking canyoning tours await you!
The Malta valley is among the best and most significant primary rock climbing areas in Austria. Exciting new routes are continually being established on the best rock and in a fabulous setting. But also worth a visit are the “climbing garden” on the Danielsberg in the Möll valley, near the Reißeck funicular, as well as the new climbing centre in the vicinity of the Arthur-von-Schmid House!
The Möll is amongst the most attractive rafting rivers in the Eastern Alps! Top water quality, the almost completely natural stretches and the steady water depth will make white water enthusiasts’ hearts beat faster!
The Möll river’s fish stock is both outstanding and natural. In particular graylings, find an ideal spawning ground in our waters and account for more than half of the biomass. Anyone who has experienced the thrilling beauty of playing a 40 cm grayling can tell you adventure stories of a very special kind. Our offer gives a guaranteed assurance that your fly-fishing holiday will be an unforgettable experience.
Places that still have a proper winter are super for indulging a passion for cross-country skiing, because they are snow-reliable.

This is the most romantic way of experiencing the winter magic of the National Park: exploring the glittering winter world on horseback and, still under the impression of horse-riding adventures, relaxing in the front a crackling fire in the hearth. And there is more... you will also be able to enjoy the range of ‘wellness’ offers provided by our horse-riding specialists – that is what winter horse-riding in the National Park Region is all about!
