The Rauris valley is a popular location for both winter and summer activities. In winter, Rauris has family-friendly skiing with well-respected ski schools. The skiing area (950-2200m) with 33km of slopes offers something for all standards with typically uncrowded slopes. (Free ski bus 20m from apartment).

In the summer there is walking for all abilities along marked routes with regular refreshments stops. Mountain biking is also well catered for with a good network of marked routes for all standards. Rauris has a heated outdoor swimming pool in an elevated position providing swimming 'with a view', indoor and outdoor tennis courts, squash, paragliding and various sauna and wellness facilities. Horse riding, rafting and gold panning are all available nearby. The presence of bearded vultures and golden eagles within the valley provide an added attraction to visitors and further information is available from the bird information centre located next to the apartment.

Other Activities: ski touring, snowshoe hiking, canoeing, rafting, squash, winter mountain climbing, sledging, winter hiking
