Have you ever wanted to trek in the Austrian Alps? If yes, join me on this 1-week adventure around Glossglockner!

Grossglockner, is located in the Austrian section of the Alps and in the Hohe Tauern National Park (High Ture). The mountain is also revered as the highest mountain in Austria and over the course of 1 week, you will get to enjoy all that it and the national park it is housed in have to offer.

We will begin our trip in the region of Koprun to trek through the Hohe Ture National Park, with our ultimate objective to climb around the Grossglockner mountain. Over the course of 7 days we will be led through stunning glaciers, trek in high alpine peaks, and amble through pastures, all of which are cared for by locals in the regions, and have been for centuries. As we make our way to Alpine huts and inns, hikers will have the opportunity to rest and ready themselves for the next day’s adventure!

We will hike about 4-8 hours per day in order to complete our route. More still, we will hike about 100 kilometers over the course of this week, so please make sure you are physically able to sustain such a trip.
