First, we ascend to the Naturfreundehaus Kolm Saigurn (1,596 m). At 4 pm, we meet in the Gasthaus Bodenhaus (1,230 m). We will go up by car and have brief hike to the hut. There we’ll discuss the programe while we have dinner.
Across the Durchgangwald forest we go to the forest road. We visit the Filzenalm (1,784 m). We hike briefly through the woods and get to the Seekopf (2,413 m). Then we continue until we reach the summit.

In mountain huts
I’m from Austria (Europe) and live in the Gastein-Valley next to Salzburg. Since 1996 I’m a UIAGM / IVBV professional mountain guide. In 2000 I graduated as a ski instructor.
My last 20 years I was working as mountain guide in all different parts of the Alps, in all seasons. In winter I work for different ski schools as ski instructor in Austria and Switzerland. Since a couple of years i am guiding as well in New Zealand. Furthermore I`m working in several education teams like the Austrian Mountain Guide Association as a coach, and also in the Austrian Skiing Instructor Association, specialized for alpine courses.
I was member of two Himalaya expeditions in 1997 and 2004. I have been climbing on Cho Oyu and Broad Peak .
My big passion is rock and ice climbing.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
