Rope parks and climbing

Rope parks

Put your courage and skill to the test in the great outdoors, courtesy of Obwalden's three rope parks, and climb from tree top to tree top. The Pilatus rope park's ten forest circuits offer fun and activity and various levels of challenge. The rope park by the lower terminus of the Melchsee-Frutt cableways offers thrills galore: its six circuits suit beginners and puts more adventurous users through their paces. Meanwhile, the Pfideripark turns children aged four and upwards into fearless adventurers. The Flying Fox rope park in Engelberg promises an unforgettable visit.

Rope Park Engelberg

An unforgettable experience offering pure adventure – that's the Flying Fox rope park. Its six circuits range in difficulty to allow you to explore your limits gradually. You'll encounter challenging balancing bridges, Nepalese-style suspension walkways and action-packed zip wires. After receiving a safety briefing, you're free to launch yourself into the adventure. You swing through the air – push off, let go and see what happens! If it's action you want, we recommend the Line 6 circuit with its via ferrata and 90-metre zip wire.
