Join us on a great day hike from the Kaindl Hut to the top of Scheffauer Mountain, part of the Wilder Kaiser. This trail is extremely beautiful and the views from the summit are not to be missed.

Our starting point is the Kaindl Hut.  You’ll have to hike for two hours from the Hintersteiner See Lake to get there. From the hut, we’ll hike for about an hour before we reach the entrance to the mountain Scheffauer. We’ll then climb to the summit, we’ll use steel ropes here and you’ll need to be sure-footed. This section will take us around an hour and a half.

When we get to the top, we’ll be rewarded with awesome views. From the summit, you’ll be able to see the Alps, the Hintersteiner See Lake and more.

We’ll descend via the southern side of the mountain range, passing through picturesque alpine scenery before arriving at the Hintersteiner See, our final destination. 

To take part in this trip you have to be comfortable walking on uneven terrain. It’s also important that you do not have a fear of heights.

Book now and we’ll see you in theWilder Kaiser mountains!

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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
