Not specified


6 Days

Jan, Feb, Dec




Enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Central Eastern Alps in Austria on a six-day snowshoe hike around Matrei in Osttirol, in the heart of the High Tauern mountain range, where you can find the highest peaks east of the Brenner Pass. Join me around the valleys of Virgen, Prägraten and Kals while learning about snow and avalanches.

For this six-day trip, we will meet the first day to have a briefing talk, hand in your equipment and check it before the adventure. We will carry out great snowshoeing excursions around Matrei for the following five days. This trip is recommended for people in good physical shape. The best period to come to this region is during the month of January.

High Tauern is considered the largest winter hiking territory in the eastern Alps. Surrounded by breathtaking forests and white wilderness, it’s the ideal place to enjoy winter sports in a relaxing environment. One of the places we will visit is The Gschlöss, a heavenly valley under the imposing Venediger glacier.

If you are ready to experience the Austrian Alps as never before, send me your request. The mountains are calling.. Listen to them!

About the guide

IFMGA/UIAGM Guide from Sesto, Italy

For almost 150 years mountain guides from Sesto/Sexten have been taking enthusiastic people on the mountains. Their long-time tradition has seen famous alpinists and legendary first ascents.

We, the new generation of the Alpinschule Sexten – Drei Zinnen, also turned our big passion into our job. The fascination of the mountains urges us all year round onto the local Dolomites and around the globe. With our professional support your time spent on the mountains doubtlessly turns into an unforgettable experience.

I work together with a group of alpine IFMGA guides: Christian, Daniel, Hannes, Joe, Robert, Helmut and Felix. If I'm not available for your request, one of them will guide you!

Our trip with Herbert was fabulous! He was very accommodating, picking us up from our hotel and then dropping us off at the train station. The via ferrata itself was great, we had a blast. Herbert guided us well through the tougher sections. I felt safe and confident the entire time. We would absolutely book Herbert again, and I was very happy with explore-share. Thanks!

Our guide, Christian, was very experienced and knoweldgeable about the area. The climb is suitable for both beginners and the more confident. Would definately recommend.
