The Oetztal Alps are home to several renowned peaks, including the Wildspitze. Join Jan, IFMGA certified mountain guide, for 4 days of ski touring in Austria.


4 Days

Mar, Apr




The Oetztal Alps, in Austria, spread widely across the Tyrol. They are a true paradise for ski lovers. 

I want to guide you on a 4-day ski touring trip to ascend several 3000 meters peaks. In fact, the program will include the ascent of Wildspitze (3770m). It's the highest summit of the Oetztal Alps and the second one in Austria. All of these ascents have one thing in common: the wonderful descents afterwards!

We will meet in the town of Vent to start our adventure. Each night we will stay in a different mountain hut, allowing us to explore different slopes each day. On the first day we will go up to Saykogel or Hauslabkogel. The second and third days include the ascents of Similaun Mittlere Guslarspitze. Finally, on the last day we will ascend the Wildspitze and end the trip with a spectacular descent.

Looking forward to joining me in the Oetztal Alps for 4 fantastic ski touring days? Then please send me a request indicating when you want to leave! It will be my pleasure to guide you in this area that I know so well. And if freeride is what you are looking for, why not have a look at my program in Solden.

In 2009, I became a full time skiing and climbing instructor.

2010 – APUL B ski instructor
2011 – APUL telemark and snowboard
2012 – ISIA Mark (International ski instructors association)

Spending your holiday with you would be my pleasure. Whether in winter on a ski tour (in Czech Republic or Austria) or in summer among the spectacular sandstone towers.

It will be, with no doubt, a very pleasant experience for all of us. I'm an easygoing, friendly and reliable person with a good sense for responsibility.

Don't hesitate to get in touch with me !

What people are saying about Jan



I had a great time and the guide really made me feel like we were friends on a day of climbing. Would do again! Thank you.



This review is not for Jan Novotny, but for Juras Sefl. Unfortunately communication with Explore share was very haphazard, and I got the feeling if I hadn’t established contact a few aus prior to our climbing date, it wouldnt have happened. No contact from jan Novotny who was indisposed and got his friend Juras to fill in last minute. Juras Sefl was excellent, reliable and took excellent care of my first time climbing teenagers who felt safe in his hands and trusted him. I wasn’t so impressed with the head organisation, as I say, communication and organisation was not optimal and I wasn’t sure what kind of service we would get. No communication with the guide. Anyhow, the overall climbing experience with Juras was excellent.



Jan was knowledgeable about the history and geography of the area, the route and pace were goid for me, he helped me with my attempt to learn Czech, the weather and snow were mostly good, altogether a very enjoyable day.



Guide: Jan Hais! What a great ski tour our threesome had in the Giant Mountains in the spring of 2022, with our guide Jan Hais. The weather was great, as was the culture of alpine huts and mountain lore in the land of the giant, Krkonoše. But the trip was really pulled together in such a successful way by the skill of our guide. He was an expert at understanding our needs. We were strong and experienced in some ways, yet less so in others, particularly in the use of alpine touring gear. Jan expertly knew when to give us room to roam, yet to jump into help when we needed it. Excellent! We did seem to fall through the cracks a little in pre-trip communications—not our guide’s fault. However, Jan listened empathetically to our concerns and his professionalism reassured us. Thank you, Jan Hais. Thanks, too, to the team at Explore-Share for reaching out to us over our pre-trip hiccups.



it was great! Jiri is a fantastic guide and man, we all enjoyed being with him a lot!!!
