Mountain lovers, join me in this ice climbing basic course in the amazing icefalls of the Eispark Osttirol in the Felbertauern area, in East Tyrol! We will enjoy 3 great days, learning and practising this exciting winter sport. So, if you always wanted to try ice climbing, this is the trip for you!

This fantastic venue is located near the Matreier Tauernhaus, in Matrei. It's the largest ice climbing park in Austria!

You will learn the basic techniques and methods you need to safely climb icefalls. In this introductory course, I will give you the theoretical and practical basis for a great experience.

Ice climbing requires a lot of training and experience, as well as knowledge of technical concepts. You should know the correct rope and securing method. Also, you must be able to estimate ice quality.

So, along the course, I will teach you about equipment management, safety training and descent or retreat methods. Besides, we will cover ice quality assesment, route selection and tour planning. Also, alpine dangers and how to behave in case of an accident, among other interesting topics.

After the course in Felbertauern, you will be able to climb, independently, easy to medium difficulty ice routes!

In order to join this program, you need previous rock climbing experience. Also, knowledge of knots and fuse theory. Besides, you need enough arms strenght!

Contact me if you want to join me in this exciting ice climbing course! I assure you will enjoy every second of your time in Felbertauern. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the program. And if you are a ski lover, you can check my 4-day freeride skiing tour in East Tyrol and Oberkärnten in Austria! It's also great fun!

Mountain Guide

I am a IFMGA certified mountain guide and I'm passionated about nature. I was born in 1977 and before entering in the mountain life, I worked as a teacher in Borg Lienz.

I started training as a canyoning guide 15 years ago. Since 2009, I have also trained with canyoning leaders in Carinthia. Additionally, I have been on the road as a mountain and ski instructor. During the summers, I have guided a lot in Switzerland, where I took my guests to many mountains over 4000 meters high. My “motto” in the mountains and in life has always been the same: “Never stop exploring”

I work now for Carnicoalpin where our main objective is leading and accompanying you on steep mountains and great ski slopes with a particular focus set on safety.

For more information, please feel free to contact me. We can discuss about your wishes and the different options I offer. I will be really happy to be your guide and share a great moment with you!

What people are saying about -Tobias



Tobias knows the Matterhorn and the surrounding area extremely well. He will go at a level that is comfortable for you and help you reach whatever mountaineering goal you have. Another reviewer said Tobias knows every step on the Matterhorn - and this is absolutely true. He's one of the BEST around.



i guess it was a little our fault for not investigating the fact that due to weather its not always possible to climb the matterhorn, but we where notice 1 week before that the weather was not good, so it was very complicated to organize something interesting as second option.



Tobias is a great guide,who knows every stone and step on the way to the top. He is a professional guide so that I can only recommend him. If you are planning to climb Matterhorn you should choose him as a guide. Best regards and many success Tobias. I wish you all the best.


Very professional I was lucky enough to get to Matterhorn, thanks



Tobias was great! Professional and nice, he brings a lot of good energy to the experience. He does indeed know every rock on the Matterhorn, truly impressive! This was my first time using explore-share, and it was pretty good. 4 stars to them. If they can improve communication and make the website a little more user friendly I think it would be a 5. All told it was a great experience, and I will definitely use them again and have already recommended Tobias to a friend.
