Get ready to explore the thrilling slopes of Innsbruck, the freeride capital of Tyrol. Immerse yourself in the alpine beauty of Austria as you ski through the steep gullies, long couloirs, switchbacks, and abseils of the Kalkkögel and Karwendel mountains.

Push yourself in the exposed terrain and venture into the Kalkkögel and Karwendel mountains, known for their challenging terrain and stunning scenery.

The Kalkkögel mountains are a relatively low-lying range, with the highest peak reaching just over 2,000 meters (6,561 feet) and are known for their gentle slopes and rolling hills. The Karwendel mountains, on the other hand, are a more rugged and challenging range, with the highest peak reaching over 2,600 meters (8,530 feet).

Combine your free ride experience with an in depth exploration of Innsbruck, a beautiful city with rich history and home to many cultural attractions, including the Hofburg Palace, the Golden Roof, and the Tiroler Volkskunstmuseum. We'll stay in the city center and be able to visit trendy bars in the evening to talk about the day's descents.

To participate in this skiing tour, you must be an experienced freerider who is comfortable with steep terrain and challenging snow conditions. You should be able to handle descents up to 45°, easy ridge climbing, and ascents with skins in steep gullies. We will use lifts whenever possible, but we will also have to hike some sections of the route. We will be in small groups of up to 4 people, so you will receive personalized attention from our UIAGM mountain guides.

This is an unforgettable experience for experienced freeriders. Book your place today and start planning your adventure with us by your side!

Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
