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.
