Mountaineering trips – Austria

Scramble and conquer the endless supply of Austria's alpine peaks

The ideal geography of the country places it at the heart of the Alps. Dramatic peaks are scattered across the mountain range, including the great Grossglockner, with its beautiful bell-shaped peak soaring to 3,798 meters. Scramble in the stunning High Tauern National Park, home to a collection of the highest summits in Austria. Visit in the summer months from June to September for peak climbing conditions.

The guide was really nice, he really knew his stuff, he was a good laugh as well. Always chilled out.
I would highly recommend this to anyone. Unfortunately I didn’t make it to the summit however, I plan to come back and do it again. And actually finish it! But it definitely gave me a huge insight on what I want to do to travel, and that is to climb mountains for charity. So thank you guys so much for helping me out. It was truly an incredible experience!
The trip was rushed, and unfortunately the guide was impatient and at times I felt that he didn’t want to
be there – which made the trip unenjoyable. The positives were, No doubt he is vey experienced, I have learnt a lot from him and was thankful for things he have shown me.
Andreas is a very nice and friendly person. He is a very professional guide. My husband and I are very
satisfied with this trip! The most exciting is we meet a snowstorm, what a rare beauty it is!
In sum, the guide Andreas was just excellent and we loved the trip! Thanks and best regards, Wim
The guide was nice. We went upto Studel hut. Next day the weather was very bad and hence we could
not proceed further. We had no time to extend our day further. Never mind. We shall think of it again later. Tanks and regards.
Great climb. The guide was very skilled, knowledgeable, and fun. The overnight stay at the hut was terrific – the
hostess at the hut was delightful.
It was a great human and sport experience. This region is so beautiful. Andreas is a kind, honest person and a
great guide. It was a pleasure to share this climb with him. He was permanently avalaible before and during the ascent and gave me some good advice. The ascent (we climbed by the studlgrat) was challenging and nice. That one requires a good physical fitness and some rock-climbing skills. I was pleased and proud when we reached the top.
Cristian del Campo Kemp for Climbing Großglockner with a guide
I found Explore Share an excellent service in locating me a local alpine guide, who in turn tailored for me
a brilliant 4 days mountaineering in Austria. Many thanks to Lupe for all her assistance in organising my guide and Mathias for his expert & personable guidance in the Austrian Alps.
The trip was greate and Andi is perfect guide. He is focused 100% on clients safety and he is very organised.
Also, we are suprised in positive way with your way of working. Regards, Arianit
Mathias took us on a slightly different trip more catered to rock climbing. It was exactly what we were looking
for! We did a one day multi pitch climbing course and then a one day mountain ascent. I’d highly recommend Mathias if you’re looking for an adventure in Austria.
Great guide, felt very safe with Andy. Good fun to
Andreas is a very friendly and competent guide. It was reassuring to be climbing with a meteorologist during unstable weather.
All three of us climbing felt very safe to have Andreas leading us up and down. I highly recommend this trip and hope to see Andi again soon!
It was such a perfect trip! Everything went very well and I’m gratified. Thanks to Andi 🙂
Jenni Kallioniemi for Climbing Großglockner with a guide
We had a fantastic time with Andreas. We met at the Stüdlhütte, had time during dinner to discuss our ascent
and he answered all our questions to our satisfaction. He even advanced us money for food and the hut as we stupidly enough did not bring enough. The hike was fantastic and not doable for us without him. Thanks again Andi for such a great experience. We definitely would book it again, and with no other guide than you! 🙂
This was our first time climbing in the alps, only did lower peaks in Sweden before. Mathias did a great
job, everything felt extremely safe, and we still managed to do it in good time. We’ll definitely be calling him for next year’s trip!
Thank you Rok, for an amazing climb up the northern wall of Triglav. Breathtaking scenery, great company and most importantly
world class guidance which made the difficulties seem easy. A memory for life!
