    There are many beautiful peaks in the Alps of Austria, and the Dachstein massif (2,995m) is one of the most stunning. Exploring a massif like this is a wonderful opportunity. And exploring it along a thrilling via ferrata makes the exploration even more exciting.

    Beginning in the Ramsau am Dachstein, we will begin our journey on the nearly 4 kilometer long via ferrata. Along the climb you will see several great highlights, including the Gamssfeldspitzen, Sheikh Spitz and Hohe Rams. At the conclusion of the first day’s journey, we will reach the Guttenberg Haus. In this mountain refuge, you will get to relax and rest for the night. You will also get to admire some fantastic evening views of the clear skies above.

    On the second day of this trip, you will get to climb on one of the many different routes near the Guttenberg Haus. Whichever route you choose will be determined by your climbing abilities as well as your physical condition. But whichever route you decide upon, I can assure you that you will get to enjoy some incredible views. At the end of the day, we will then make our descent.

    Participants on this trip should have some previous via ferrata experience.

    Scaling a massif in the Alps along a via ferrata is a spectacular experience. And on this 2 day trip, I would like to guide you on the amazing Dachstein via ferrata. So send me a request, and let the adventure begin.

    About the Guide


    The mountains have always been a great part of my life. I was a youth leader of the Alpine Association of Zell am See, Bergrettungsmann, and completed the training as a ski and snowboard instructor. I studied meteorology because it can be very useful in mountaineering. My first trips took me to the Eastern Alps, around Piz Bernina and Biancogray. I also had the chance many times the amazing Mont Blanc range and the peaks around Chamonix. Finally, I got to practice in the high mountains of Bolivia and Chile.
    I have really found my calling as a mountain guide. I am right where I always wanted to be. The smile on my clients' faces at the summit or after an intense ski day is so rewarding!
    I am part of a team of local guides (Bergführer Zell am See Kaprun), all friends of mine, guys with whom I share the passion for the mountains. They are Markus B, Markus H and Gerald, all IFMGA certified guides. Our philosophy is "to know how to do something well is to enjoy it". Therefore, we always keep learning to give you the best experience.
