In summer the Schesaplana region is a true Eldorado for hikers, golfers, tennis players, horse riders, archers, fishermen, mountain bikers, paragliders and white-water rafters. Just a golf drive away from the Alpenhotel Zimba, the Brand golf course, with 18 holes, invites you to tee off and putt. The nearby riding arena is available to both beginners and competent riders.
There are more than 400 kms of hiking routes which start from the village, the Niggenkopf or the Lünersee further into the Rätikon massif.
