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.
