Description

Stretching out across the Austrian states of Salzburg and Upper Austria are the stunning Salzkammergut Mountains.

The sunny slopes here offer incredible room for skiing exploration. Dramatic alpine scenery, with steep mountains and subalpine lakes forming the region.

We’ll focus on the rugged backcountry that surrounds Gosau, a small town sat on rich green pastures, once fixed towards timer and salt production.

Fragrant forests carpet the slopes with scattered crystal-clear mountain lakes. This was once the royal retreat for the Habsburg monarchy, now it’s premium wilderness for all.

Our area of exploration may be the Gosaukamm mountain range or the Osterhorn mountain group. We’ll assess the weather conditions and follow where the best snow lies.

During our days of ski touring we’ll plan for an altitude range of 1,000 meters above sea level.

Reach summits including Seekarwand (1,664 meters) and the Gamsfeld, which at 2,027 meters is the highest peak among the Osterhorn group.

Then discover incredible descents down fast and winding routes flanked by some of the most serene scenery in the Alps.

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the Salzkammergut Mountains for a 4-day ski tour around the alpine town of Gosau.

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.
