Daniel, an IFMGA certified guide, takes you to the top of the Grossglockner in this 2-day mountaineering trip in the Austrian Alps. The views are breathtaking!
Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep
The Grossglockner (3789m) is the roof of Austria. And in fact, it’s one of the most famous peaks in the country. I invite you in this occasion to ascend it by the normal route in 2 days.
It will be a demanding and rewarding ascent on the rock. In addition, the first day includes some fun via ferrata. And we will sleep at the Erzherzog-Johann-Hütte, the highest mountain hut in Austria.
I can guarantee that you will never forget the panorama from the summit!
You need to be prepared and in very food condition since we will ascend up to 400 meters per hour. Besides, the difficulty of the climbing is up to UIAA 2.

Then we continue along the Ködnitzkees to an easy via ferrata. leading us to the Erzherzog-Johann-Hütte (3451m), the highest hut in Austria. The sunset at this altitude is an unforgettable experience.

Today we start early in the morning over the Glocknerleitl up to the rocks, which lead us to the Kleinglockner. The summit is already close, but before we finish the last passage in the rock, we head down again briefly to the Glocknerscharte. At the highest point of Austria, you can admire a unique panorama.

Born in the Austrian Alps, the connection to the mountains was there from early on. Started skiing as a 3 year old kid, bit later climbing and mountaineering stepped in my live. Skiing and climbing all over the Alps and abroad became a huge part of my life.
One of my favorite places in the Alps are the mountains around Chamonix and Zermatt. Since graduating as a fully-certified Mountain guide, I’ve been able to share my passion for skiing and climbing with my guests. When I’m not guiding I try to push my personal limits in climbing and mountaineering. Looking forward reaching summits together.

Fantastic guide. Had a great time with my first real mountaineering experience, learnt a lot during the process and always felt safe.I highly recommend him and I am looking forward for the next trips.
Great trip! We enjoyed every minute - Daniel was great as a guide and quickly and safely gets you past the trickier sections so as to maximise the fun and enjoyment. We felt safe and confident with him at all times and wouldn't hesitate to book another tour!
We planned a trip to the grossglockner early August this year with Daniel. On arrival in Austria the weather turned bad with nearly 24/7 rain and thunder in between so we wouldn't reach the peak. The guide proposed to go sportclimbing indoors, or go a week later, communication was fast and clear. We didn't have a week so decided to cancel the trip, for which Daniel offered a partial refund. Have a look at Daniel's website for detailed information on gear, route and requirements. Once back in our home country we couldn't get in touch anymore, but Explore-Share took over communication and solved remaining issues. Hope to finish this ascent sometime in the future with better weather conditions, and good luck to Daniel!
Daniel was an excellent guide. Great experience!
This weekend i went with Daniel to the Grossglockner via the normal route and the experience was perfect. Everything was arranged and felt safe the whole trip. i would reccomend Daniel to everyone who wants to climb some mountains in the alps. In the future i will again make use of his services if i decide to climb in the alps once more.
Daniel made our two day guided ascent to the summit of Großglockner an incredible and unforgettable experience. Daniel provided us with quality gear and kept us well informed throughout the whole expedition in terms of the route, weather conditions and safety precautions. Daniel’s communication skills were fantastic and he spoke perfect English. We were very thankful that Daniel gave us a second attempt at the summit after having to turn back on our first attempt due to bad weather (Daniel’s judgement of the conditions was great and we had full confidence in his decision to turn back to ensure safety). The summit was absolutely amazing and we had a lot of fun and good laughs with Daniel. We hope we can book Daniel for another trip soon, Danke!!
