Join a certified mountain guide on this 2-day Grossglockner ascent via the normal route and reach the summit of the highest mountain in Austria!


2 Days

Jun - Aug




Grossglockner (3798m) is Austria’s highest mountain and a very popular goal among mountaineers. Join me on this 2-day program to its summit via the normal route.

On the border between the Austrian states of Carinthia and Tyrol, Grossglockner is part of the High Tauern mountain range. During the ascent, you’ll enjoy strikingly beautiful views of the surrounding peaks.

This classic route to the Grossglockner summit is not technically difficult but be aware that you do need to know how to walk with crampons and have a very good physical condition.

This 2-day climb starts at Mojstrana. From there, our next goal will be Lucknerhaus, and we will continue along the Ködnitzkees glacier to the Erzherzog Johann hutte where we’ll spend the night. To get to the hut, we’ll have to cross the magnificent glacier, and that’s where the crampons come in handy!

We’ll leave quite early on the second day for the summit attack. The biggest challenge is right before we get to the top: Glockner Scharte (col) will lead us straight to the summit.

The tour is suitable for people with winter experience in the mountains. 

Want to join me on this classic ascent in the Alps? I can take up to 3 people with me. Contact me know and reserve your dates!

Mountain Guide

I am an IFMGA mountain guide born in 1980 in Mojstrana, a Slovenian village close to Mount Triglav, the highest mountain in the country at 2864 m.

From an early age, my parents took me to the mountains during summer and winter. At that time, my father was part of a mountain rescue team in my hometown and was also going on expeditions to the Himalaya and the Andes, so he became a big inspiration for me. We went climbing, hiking, sport climbing and ski touring together. His enthusiasm truly influenced me.

I went to Alpine school, then Mountain rescue team, I did the Alpinist exam and I became an Alpinist instructor. After that, I also studied to be a professor of Sport. Several years later, I decided to begin my mountain guide education and to become an IFMGA/UIAGM certified mountain guide.

What people are saying about Gregor


A fantastic trip, with an extremely professional mountain guide. Made us feel very welcome in his back yard, with excellent attention to both safety and enjoyment.



Grega was a great guide - advised us which route to do and adapted to suit as we went. Highly recommended.



Ziga was the best guide, very professionnal, secure, I recommend



Our guide Cveto was very knowledgeable and friendly. The pace of the climb was tailor made and perfect for our group. Overall a very enjoyable experience!



The trip itself and the via ferrata was nice with great views, however we didn't enjoy the guiding experience. He was rushing a lot, and asked us to hurry each time we tried to stop to drink or take a photo. On the way back he was walking 200 meters ahead of our group, was chatting on his phone, sometimes shouting back to hurry. Overall we spent only 4 hours climbing. Despite what was promised in the tour description, they were not willing to pick us up at Bled (unless we pay 160 euros extra), so we had to take a 35 min drive to the Kofler office. They also asked us to pack warm winter clothing which was super unneccessary given the very hot weather.
