7-day hike from hut to hut around Mount Watzmann (2713 m) in the Berchtesgaden National Park (Bavarian Alps), with Oscar and Monica, UIMLA mountain leaders.


9 Days

Jul - Sep


Mount Watzmann (2713 m) is located in the Bavarian Alps south of the village of Berchtesgaden. In fact, it is the second highest peak in Germany. It takes 2 hours driving from Munich to reach the starting point of the hike.

We love guiding there from July till September, taking our friends and clients to these fantastic places. We particularly enjoy this hike because:
– The views of Mount Watzmann are awesome, every day a bit different since we hike around it;
– It’s a very wild place where the nature is still preserved;
– You feel totally disconnected when you go there. There is no Wi-Fi!;
– It’s a good mix in terms of natural environment, during the first days in the woods and slowly reaching alpine flora;
– The atmosphere in the mountain huts is very welcoming and nice. In some of them, you feel like going back hundreds years ago. Some are really charming. In addition, we eat very well!

The starting point is in Wimbachbrücke, the gate to enter the Berchtesgaden National Park. During 7 days we will hike around Mount Watzmann, going first up and then down which allows us during the last days from below, to see the path we have taken a few days back.

We walk on average 5 hours a day and try to hike in the morning so that we can take it easy during the afternoon. Then we rest in the hut, go for a swim in one of the nearby lakes, do small hikes around the hut, take pictures, play cards in the refuge…

Please contact us if you plan to come here during the next summer. It will be our great pleasure to guide you here and show you our secret spots in the park. Contact us and let’s plan this beautiful hike together.

Also in Germany, we can go snowshoeing in Allgäu. And if you are up to a challenge, check out this guided trek of the Everest three passes!

Selva Negra

Mountain Leader

Hi, nice to meet you!
I am working together with Laura Carmona González, we both were born in Spain and now we are living in the north of the Black Forest in Germany, close to the German Alps and the Vosges in France. Now I am going to tell you something else about myself.
I was born in Spain in a small village between Toledo and Madrid, nearby the Spanish Central Mountain Range. I have been living for some years in Scotland, New Zealand and 8 years in Germany. Spanish is my mother tongue and I talk fluent English and German as well as a bit of French.
I am qualified trekking, MTB and horse riding guide as well as Black Forest Middle-North Natural Park Guide - Schwarzwald Guide. Two years ago I finished my qualification as a Mountain Leader UIMLA.
Nature and mountains are a very important thing for me from long time ago, that is why I decided to take this hobby as my profession. I have worked more than fifteen years as a trekking, MTB and horse riding guide for many companies and travel agencies in different countries in the world.

¡Hola, encantado de saludarte!
Trabajo conjuntamente con mi compañera Laura Carmona González, ambos somos españoles y ahora vivimos en el norte de La Selva Negra en Alemania, cerca también de los Alpes alemanes y los Vosgos franceses. A continuación voy a contarte más cosas acerca de mí mismo, para que puedas conocerme un poco mejor.
Nací en un pequeño pueblo entre Toledo y Madrid, cercano las montañas del Sistema Central español. Viví un par de años en Escocia y Nueva Zelanda y llevo ya más de 8 años en Alemania. Mi lengua materna es el español, hablo fluidamente inglés y alemán y me defiendo con el francés.
Soy guía titulado en España de media montaña, bicicleta de montaña y rutas a caballo, además soy guía oficial del Parque Natural de La Selva Negra en Alemania y hace dos años que finalicé mi titulación como guía internacional de media montaña y actividades con raquetas de nieve UIMLA.
La naturaleza y las montañas son una de mis pasiones desde hace mucho tiempo y es por eso por lo que un día decidí transformar mi pasión en mi profesión. He trabajado como guía más de quince años para varias agencias y empresas de trekking en más de diez diferentes países alrededor del mundo.
Estoy deseando conocerte para poderte mostrar y guiarte por mis rincones preferidos de montaña. ¡Hasta pronto!

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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
