Description

The Grossglockner is the highest mountain in Austria and a favorite among climbers around the world!

Come enjoy strikingly beautiful views in a true high mountain environment! No rock climbing experience is necessary but bear in mind that you need to be in good physical condition and, additionally, be able to walk between 4 and 6 hours per day.

This 2-day ascent of the famous Grossglockner starts with a pleasant hiking trail from the parking lot to Stüdl Hut. Then, we step into our crampons and walk on a magnificent glacier to reach Erzherzog Johann Hut. Once here, you'll realize how renowned this peak is: you'll meet people from every corner of the world!

On the next day, we'll leave before the sun is out, using head torches to guide our path. Finally, the Glockner Scharte (col), the most challenging part of the ascent, will lead us to the Grossglockner summit.

We had a great time with Andreas. He is very professional and experienced guide. He provided good safety session before our trip and provided personal safety equipment for a very reasonable price. His choice of routes were correctly matched to our abilities to challenge us and provide quite an exciting time. We would never be able to experience this kind of skiing without a guide and Andi was a great choice. I would highly recommend him to any clients from a beginners to a professionals. Also I enjoyed using your site for booking guide services. You were fast and informative. Transaction was simple, transparent and rate was very competetive. Thank you
