    Let’s climb the frozen waterfalls of Tyrol. With eleven different areas, this Austrian region offers good ice climbing fun during the winter. 

    It does not matter if it’s your first time or if you are in search of a big challenge. I am here to propose you a custom and personalized ice climbing course. Tyrol has something for everyone: frozen waterfalls, glacier walls and amazing ice towers.

    However, the ice surfaces of Tyrol are always unpredictable. So, it is very important to have the help of a local and certified guide with good knowledge of the region.

    My idea is to test your current techniques and teach you then how to work on an ice wall, using the proper equipment. These ice climbing courses will take place in the Kitzbühel Alps.

    The area around St Johann in Tyrol has some great unknown and quiet locations to enjoy this program. If the weather conditions help we can also practice in Gasteinertal, Großarltal and Stubaital.

    This ice climbing course runs during the month of January. It consists in 2 learning days although I can add some extra days if you wish. The group size cannot exceed 3 participants. That way I can offer you a course focused on your own expectations and safety.

    All participants must have a good fitness level since we will hike for 4 or 6 hours each day. In addition, climbing and belaying experience is also a plus.

    So, come with me and experience the fantastic feeling of climbing vertical ice walls. Learn all the secrets of this exciting activity in a unique place as Tyrol!

    What People are Saying about Andreas Helmer


    We had a great time with Andreas. He is very professional and experienced guide. He provided good safety session before our trip and provided personal safety equipment for a very reasonable price. His choice of routes were correctly matched to our abilities to challenge us and provide quite an exciting time. We would never be able to experience this kind of skiing without a guide and Andi was a great choice. I would highly recommend him to any clients from a beginners to a professionals. Also I enjoyed using your site for booking guide services. You were fast and informative. Transaction was simple, transparent and rate was very competetive. Thank you
