Description

Dominating the heart of Austria are towering rugged mountains of the eastern Alps.

The region of Ausseerland is a rugged section of the historic region of Salzkammergut, where you’ll find UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Located here is Tauplitz, part of the Styrian Salzkammergut, that features sensational snow conditions. This is one of the reasons why Tauplitz has such a long and rich skiing history.

It is home to a quality cross-country ski trail that zigzags along blankets of snow that reach 4 meters deep.

Conditions are so good that you’ll be carving out your own tracks in the dense snow while the sun shines down from morning to evening.

Other regions of exploration include Wölz Tauern, a subrange of the Austrian Central Alps that is home to impressive peaks such as Grosser Bösenstein (2,448 meters), Greim (2,474 meters) and Rettlkirchspitze (2,475 meters).

During the weekend ski tour you’ll pass frozen lakes, summit stunning alpine peaks such as Almkogel (2,116 meters) and Lämmertörlkopf (2,090 meters), and breath in the crisp alpine air while rushing down the steep and winding slopes.

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.
