The Silvretta Alps, in Austria, are fantastic for ski touring. Join Jan, IFMGA certified mountain guide, to explore Piz Buin, Silvrettahorn and more!


4 Days

Mar, Apr


The Wiesbadenerhutte (Wiesbadener hut) is located at the Oetzal valley, in the Silvretta Alps. It is the perfect starting point for fantastic ski touring itineraries. 

In this occasion, I organized a 4-day ski touring trip in Silvretta Alps, in Austria, staying at the Wiesbadenerhutte. The hut is easily accessible and the surrounding terrains are fantastic. For example there is Piz Buin, Silvrettahorn and Dreiländerspitze. In particular, Piz Buin (3312m) is the most popular peak in the region for skiers as well as mountaineers.

The flat and wide glaciers will allow you to enjoy ski touring here, putting in practice all your skills. The area is famous for the great quality and quantity of snow. Since the glaciers are wide, there is a lot of virgin terrain. Besides, the descents are long and varied.

You can not get it wrong with this tour! Join me to explore the hidden corners of the Silvretta Alps with our skis on.

Interested in these 4 ski touring days? Then do not hesitate to get in touch with me! I would love to guide you up there. The Giant Mountains, in Czech Republic, are another fantastic destination for ski touring. You can check it out!

I've been skiing and climbing since my early childhood. I graduated in 2005 from the Univerzity of Hradec Kralove with a Master degree at the Faculty of Education. Since then I worked as a history and PE teacher. I was also running an Outdoor sport's club at that time, spending plenty of time climbing, skiing etc. with my students.

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

2009 – APUL C ski instructor
2010 – APUL B ski instructor
2011 – APUL telemark and snowboard
2012 – ISIA Mark (International ski instructors association)
– MSMT climbing instructor and Mountain leader
2013 – entered the UIAGM mountain guide education
2014 – passed the UIAGM Aspirant exam.
2015 - Succeeded the UIAGM / IFMGA final exam

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!!!
