Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep
The wild and picturesque Austrian Alps await you on this 8-day mountaineering course, which will see you perched upon the summit of Wildspitze by the end of the week!
Our adventure begins with a bit of learning as we get you up to speed on a variety of essential mountaineering techniques, including knot tying, belaying, and crampon and ice axe usage.
We will practice belaying and maneuvering on the Ziegelwies wall, which is a 20-minute hike from our hotel in Füssen, before packing up the next day and heading out to Piztal in Tyrol. Once we arrive at the trailhead, we will ascend over the Taschach glacier and onto the Taschachhaus mountain hut.
We will get an early start the next day and put some of our newly acquired skills to the test as we climb the Sexegerten Spitze. This peak is perfect for learning by doing and, as we go along, we will learn how to tie in, and mountaineer in the most energy-efficient manner and climb a Via Ferrata.
After another day of learning different anchoring and safety techniques, we will get an early start and make our way back over the Taschach glacier and on to Tyrol’s tallest peak – Wildspitze.
After taking in the breathtaking views from the summit, we will head back down to the mountain hut and enjoy a well-deserved evening of great food and even better beer. The next morning, we will have a brief session learning self-rescue techniques before heading back to the hotel in Füssen and saying our goodbyes.
So what are you waiting for? Book now for your epic mountaineering experience in the heart of the Austrian Alps!

Amazing trip from start to finish! Tal is a very professional guide and methodical in his teaching method, it made learning a new skill very easy and enjoyable.
An awesome adventure provided by Tal's company. All requirements were met and schedule was adjusted for the changing weather conditions. It was one of the best guided tours I've experienced so far!
Amazing trip, great hotel and the food was unbelievable. The guiding was very thorough and professional and I took a lot away from it. Conditions weren't great but we definitely made the most of it
