Ready for a challenging and exciting week ski touring in the Hochtirol? Join Maria, IFMGA certified mountain guide, in this amazing hut-to-hut ski trip!
Join me in this challenging high mountain traverse in the Hochtirol, in Eastern Alps.
In fact, we will go from Kasern in South Tyrol through the fascinating summit and glacier landscape of the Venediger. Then we go to the Großglockner, the highest mountain in Austria.
During this week we will cover about 140 km in total. Besides, the accumulated altitude change is 18,480 meters!
This is a demanding trip, thus you need to be in very good condition to do stages of up to 8 hours per day. And of course you need to have goos experience in skiing in all snow and walking with crampons.
Tempted by this week in the Eastern Alps? The Hochtirol is a wonderful region to explore! Please get in touch with me so we can start making plans. And if you are looking for a shorter trip, check out this 2-day ski touring in the Grossglockner.

I am a IFMGA certified mountain guide and a climbing lover. I grew up in a small farm in Mittersiller Sonnberg. My parents used to show us the beauty of our mountains. When I was 10 years old I went ski touring for the first time and I really loved it. The next years, I started climbing walls which really fascinated me. I also participated in many competitions.
My career took me to Hohe Tauern National Park where I finished the ranger training to bring visitors to the beauties of my country.
In 2013, I got my official certificate as a mountain guide and ski instructor. A dream came true! Since 2014, I have been working a full time guide, guiding in different areas such as Ortler, Valais, Dolomites, Wilder Kaiser, Muztagh Ata (China)... and of course, in some of our famous mountains such as Großvenediger and Großglockner.
Feel free to get in touch with me! I'll be glad to share with you a great moment in the mountains!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
