Ortler (3905m) climbing in South Tyrol

Ortler Ostwand

Rudi, IFMGA certified mountain guide, invites you to this mountaineering weekend in South Tyrol for the ascent of Ortler, the highest peak in the region.

Not specified


2 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep


Ortler is the highest mountain in South Tyrol. With 3905m, it's not a 4000er, but its ascent through the normal route is extremely varied and exciting. It offers everything that will make a mountaineer's heart beat faster!

On the first day we ascend first by chairlift from Sulden to Landenstein. Then we ascend until the Payerhütte, where we spend the night. The second day is summit day! I can assure you, you won't stop admiring the wonderful views during the whole day! But it's not all contemplation, the day requires some fun effort as well.

Although the program is not particularly difficult, you need to be in very good shape. In fact, the second day is quite long, we will ascend and descend for up to 10 hours. Besides, you need to have experience with crampons and walking on glaciers.

Are you interested in this weekend ascent to the beautiful Ortler? Then please contact me for more information! I will be waiting for your message. And if you are in South Tyrol during the winter, I can also take you freeriding in the Dolomites!

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
