    Come and join me in this glacier and rock climbing course in the spectacular Austrian Dachstein! We will share 5 days together and you will learn all there is to know about these two winter activities.

    Have you always wondered what is like to walk on ice? Or maybe to climb a rock? Then, this is the right course for you.

    What is more, you will learn while being surrounded by a breathtaking landscape such as the Dachstein.

    The audience of this glacier and climbing course are all mountain lovers who are maybe afraid of adventuring into the nature. So, after this 5-day course you will become fearless explorers.

    Come with me and you will gain the confidence and courage needed to face the ice and the mountains. 

    Our base will be the Simony hut, which has been modernised. There is access to the Internet and warm showers on the first floor.

    Also, the hut’s location is at a short distance below the Hallstädter glacier. Therefore, you can put into practice your glacier and rock climbing knowledge right away.

    During these 5 days you will also learn rope management, the knots, crevasse rescue, belaying on rock and ice, orientation, abseiling, via ferrata training, tour planing, and many more things.

    Most importantly, the location of the hut is very close to the training areas. Then, after a 10-minute walk we will reach the rock climbing area. After 30 minutes we will get to the glacier.

    Finally, at a 20-minute distance walking we have the nearest Via Ferratas.

    Some suggested tours and peak summits are:

    • Schöberl at 2422 m
    • Dachstein at 2995 m
    • Hohes Kreuz at 2837 m
    • Hohes Dirndl at 2829 m

    Remember, the only technical requirement this course has is for you to be able to walk 4-6 hours per day.

    Come with me to Dachstein and you will have the chance of learning glacier and rock climbing skills in a fun and practical way. I’ll be waiting for your contact since it will be a great pleasure to guide you through this complete instruction course.

    About the Guide


    I am an IFMGA mountain guide, but also a passionate traveler and climber. I really enjoy exploring and re-exploring the most beautiful climbing spots in the world. And what I like most is to share with you all my joy and passion while helping you to discover the mountains.

    Since 1997 when I got my mountain guide certificate, I have been guiding my guests throughout the European Alps, heliskiing in British Columbia, South America, New Zealand and the United States.

    Actually and for many years, Zermatt has been my “home base” for guiding during summer season. During these years, I’ve climbed on all the peaks in the valley and around Saas Fee. One of the best experiences and personal highlight in the season, is guiding the Matterhorn which offers incredible views of the Western Alps.

    I like guiding people from all around the world and help them enjoying and reaching their objectives. It will be my great pleasure to let you discover such a great spots! I am waiting for you!
