Description

Join me on an adventure-filled 7 days as we climb the three highest summits in Austria. This is a unique mountaineering experience where we’ll get to cover a lot of ground and see many of Austria’s best alpine areas like Tirol, Salzburg and Carinthia.

Our first challenge of the trip will be to climb to the summit of Wildspitze. Before that, however, we’ll spend a day getting used to the altitude. I’ll also take the opportunity to instruct you on mountaineering procedure and safety. On this trip, we’ll be traversing a glacier at one point, so it’s important that you have all the necessary information and equipment before attempting this.

Once we’re all sorted, we’ll spend the next few days climbing mountains, breathing in the crisp alpine air and enjoying the views.

After we’ve climbed Wildspitze, we’ll tackle the summit of Großvenediger (not on the same day, don’t worry!). We’ll finish the trip with a climb to the summit of the largest mountain in Austria, Großglockner at 3798 metres. This is a once in a lifetime experience and you’ll never forget the beautiful alpine views you get both on the way and on from the top.

So, what are you waiting for? Request to book now and join me in the mountains!

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival Day

I’ll pick you up from either Munich or Salzburg Airport. If you have your own car we can meet directly in Vent. From Vent, we’ll head to the Breslauer Hut which will be our home for the next two days.

Day 2: Acclimatisation day

We’ll start with an easy day on day two. We’ll give you all the information you need regarding glacier travel, walking with crampons, and more. This day will also help you acclimatise to the altitude.  We’ll have dinner together in the Breslauer Hut.

Day 3: Wildspitze

On day three we’ll head to the summit of the Wildspitze which sits at 3666 metres. We’ll return to the hut at the end of the day to relax and sleep.

Day 4: Travel to the base of Großvenediger

In the morning we’ll jump in the car and drive to the Base of Großvenediger. We’ll spend the day traveling and then getting to the hut where we’ll sleep for the night.

Day 5: Großvenediger

This is the day that we reach the summit of Großvenediger! We’ll start early so that we can reach it before lunch. From the summit we’ll be able to take in views of nearby Großglockner (our final challenge for the trip). When we arrive back down to camp we’ll pack up and head to Kals am Großglockner and the famous Stüdlhut, where we’ll stay overnight.

Day 6: Großglockner

Day six is a big day because we’ll be tackling Austria’s highest peak, Großglockner which sits at 3798 metres. After we reach the summit we’ll have some time to take in the views before we descend back to the Stüdlhut.

Day 7: Departure Day

We’ll descend from the hut and then I’ll take you back to the airport for your departure.


About the guide

guide profile img

My passion for the mountains starts early in my life. At age 10 I summited Dachstein, the highest mountain in northern Austria the first time. But it took 6 more years to get me into climbing at age 16. Since then I haven't stopped climbing.

Since 2012 I have been self-employed as a climbing Guide. I became a fully-certified mountain guide in 2016.

I love how my guiding work has taken me to special places like Patagonia, Lyngen and Lofoten but also very much enjoy working in the Alps and climbing well-known peaks such as Dachstein, Großglockner, and Mount Blanc.

I will be happy to guide you on your next mountain holiday. I'll try to make it a satisfying and safe journey to the summit and back to the valley!
