Type of Trip
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.

If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
