Description

Calling all climbers to the Austrian Alps! On this 2-day climbing adventure on the Grossglockner mountain, you will experience the sheer excitement that the Alps have to offer.

The Grossglockner mountain is located in the southwest of Austria and it’s the highest peak in the country. This mountaineering excursion is one of the classic mountaineering challenges in the Alps, much like venturing to the Matterhorn or Mont Blanc.

We will begin this trip with at 1,918 meters above sea level and climb about 800 meters on our first day to the Stüdl mountain hut (2802 meters). This should take approximately 2.5 hours. The following morning we will rise early and enjoy a hearty breakfast in order to be physically strong enough to climb the 1,000 meters to the summit (3798 meters) via the Stüdl Ridge. After taking in the sweeping views, we will then descend via Erzherzog-Johann-Hütte (3451 m), climbing down 1,800 meters.

This is a private trip of moderate difficulty, so please keep this in mind when signing up! With a 4:1 guide ratio, this is a great trip to do solo or with loved ones.
