Description

Come and join me in this wonderful mountaineering trip across the Austrian Alps to see one of its highest mountain: the Grossglockner! It is a 6-day trip full of adventure and wonderful landscapes which will stay printed in your memory.

Adventure yourself this high-altitude hut to hut expedition in the Austrian Alps. You will have the chance of reaching the extremely high top of the Grossglockner.

Also, you will be witness of the altitude splendour of 8 mountain peaks of over 3000m. Some are Romariswandkopf, Johannisberg, and many others.

It is a classic Haute Route, one of the best to do in the Austrian part of the Alps and of course in the Grossglockner area.

The traversing trip will be filled of highlights. The hut to hut mountaineering from Schwaiger to Oberwalder and the following day to Stüdl is just one of them.

We will also visit one of Austria’s biggest glacier, the Pasterze. This walk will last for 8-9 hours. So, much better if you have some experience using crampons to walk on ice.

You will have the chance of sleeping underneath the Grossglockner. There is a hut which is the highest one of the East Alps.

I invite all adventure lovers to join me! It is not a particularly difficult expedition. You just have to be in good physical conditions and know the basics about alpine climbing. The climbing sections are very short and they only reach a grade II.

I will accompany you in groups of 4 people maximum so I can guarantee your trip to be well-guided and safe.

Join me and I assure you you it will be an experience you won’t forget and you will probably want to repeat. I’ll be waiting for your contact since it will be a great pleasure to accompany you through this especially courageous alpine adventure on and across the Grossglockner.

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!

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
