    Would you like to venture yourself into via ferrata? I have the perfect program for you! Join me in this 5-day via ferrata course for beginners in Liesing, Austria, and start having fun with this great activity.

    During 5 days I will teach you the basic rules for climbing via ferrata. I will give you an intensive training on the standard movements. Also, how to correctly grasp while you climb.

    Besides, this via ferrata course covers the equipment you need and what you have to be aware of while you climb. We will also have time to talk about tour planning and how to help weaker partners. And, very important, how to retreat in the via ferrata. You can check the detailed program below this text.

    The first via ferrata routes were built during the First War World, equipped with ladders and cable. They aimed to let troops move across the mountains in the safest possible way. Since then, with the more modern routes built across Europe, via ferrata has become a very popular activity.

    So, join me in this exciting via ferrata course! Contact me and I will answer any questions you may have about the program. We can share 5 great days out in the mountains.

    And if you want to try another fun activity, you can check my 3-day canyoning tour in Lesachtal.

    About the Guide


    I’m a IFMGA certified mountain guide and a nature lover. I was born in 1983 and I studied Cultural and social anthropology at the Vienna University.

    Mountains, water, cultures have been always my passion. That’s why I’m a mountain, ski, canyoning and rafting guide, also a ski instructor and a snowboard enthusiast.

    Helene and myself are the owners of the Hepi lodge. A space for mountaineers, climbers, skiing enthusiasts where besides offering the accommodation service we proposed varied programmes of different activities: rock climbing, ski touring, canyoning, hiking tours.

    I guide most of my time in Lesachtal Valley: St Lorenzen, St Jakob, Birnbaum, Karnische Alps and Lienz Dolomites.

    I love guiding people from all around the world and help them discover my region and its beauties doing what they like most! Feel free to contact me to discuss about your expectations and what I can offer you. We will share a great time together!
