Description

Join me in this challenging 2-day ski tour and let’s reach the summit of the Grossglockner (3798 m), the highest mountain in Austria! Also, it’s a real highlight in the Hohen Tauern range, in the Central Eastern Alps.

We will spend 2 unforgettable days in this exciting ascent. You need to have some rock climbing and crampons use experience to join this tour!

We will meet at Lucknerhaus, in Kals. Then, we will go up together to the Stüdlhütte. The climb to the hut will take us between 2 and 3 hours, depending on the conditions.

On the second day, we will start our ascent to the summit! It will take us about 3 hours to the Archduke Johannshütte. Depending on your experience, we may continue with our skis in the direction of Glocknerleitl or leave them at the ski depot. 

Then, we will begin an exciting climb, partly exposed. We will climb over the Kleinglockner to the Grossglockner summit. It will take us about 2 hours. So, after the summit, with spectacular views, we will descend along the ascent route. You can check the complete itinerary below this text.

So contact me if you want to join me in this challenging ascent to the Grossglockner! I will be happy to guide you! Make sure you also check out my Kitzsteinhorn ski touring day!
