Grossvenediger 2-day ascent by the normal route


The Grossvenediger is one of the most amazing glaciated summits in the Alps. Maria, an IFMGA certified guide, will take you up to its summit!

Not specified


2 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




The Grossvenediger (3657 m) is one of the most impressive summits in Austria. Today, I invite you to join me in a 2-day ascent tour by the normal route.

This beautiful mountain lies in the Hohe Tauern range, on the border between Tyrol and Salzburg. Also, it's the Venediger Group's main peak. Besides, the Grossvenediger is one of the most incredible glaciated summits in the Alps!

We will meet in Neukirchen am Grossvenediger and we will head to the Kürsinger Hütte. Then, we will start planning our climb. On the second day, very early in the morning, our ascent will begin! You can check the detailed program below this text. 

Once in the summit, we will enjoy breathtaking views and all the beauty of the Austrian Alps! On a clear day, we will be able to even appreciate the Ortler summit. 

Do you find this Grossvenediger ascent tour tempting? Then contact me and we can start planning your own trip! I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the program.

You can also check other tours that I guide, like the Stubacher Sonnblick ski touring program or the Gaisstein peak guided ski tour.


Price includes

- Guiding fee


Day 1: Kürsinger Hütte

We will meet at Neukirchen am Grossvenediger, and we will get a taxi to the funicular station (1929m). Then, we will head to the Kürsinger Hütte (2548 m). The equipment can be sent to the hut by cable car. We will decide whether we will make the climb to the hut by the normal path, the Klamml, or whether we will climb over the new via ferrata route. It will be a 600 metres ascent (2 hours).

Day 2: Grossvenediger summit

Early in the morning we will start our tour towards the Grossvenediger summit. Still in the dark, we will go to the glacier entrance with the light of our headlights. Later, the daylight will greet us. We will enjoy the ascent on the “flat” glacier and let our thoughts wander. Once we reach the Summit, we will have time to take some pictures and enjoy a spectacular panorama. Then, we will start our descent. Back on the Kürsinger Hütte we will then continue the descent to the Seilbahnhütte, where the Täler taxi will bring us back to the starting point.



More info

I can provide you with rental equipment (harness, crampons).

There is also the possibility to climb the Grossvenediger through slightly more challenging climbs, either through the West Ridge (climbing up to the 2nd difficulty level) or the North Ridge (climbing up to the lower 4th difficulty level). You can contact me and I'll give you more details about these tours.

About the guide

I am a IFMGA certified mountain guide and a climbing lover. I grew up in a small farm in Mittersiller Sonnberg. My parents used to show us the beauty of our mountains. When I was 10 years old I went ski touring for the first time and I really loved it. The next years, I started climbing walls which really fascinated me. I also participated in many competitions.

My career took me to Hohe Tauern National Park where I finished the ranger training to bring visitors to the beauties of my country.

In 2013, I got my official certificate as a mountain guide and ski instructor. A dream came true! Since 2014, I have been working a full time guide, guiding in different areas such as Ortler, Valais, Dolomites, Wilder Kaiser, Muztagh Ata (China)... and of course, in some of our famous mountains such as Großvenediger and Großglockner.

Feel free to get in touch with me! I'll be glad to share with you a great moment in the mountains!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
