Enjoy an ultimate mountain holiday experience! This week combines a high alpine ascent with a mountaineering course, acclimatisation by hiking and biking tours from our base MoaAlm, good food and a relaxing atmosphere.
The highlight of the week is climbing the Grossglockner, which is situated in our own 'backyard'. With its 3797m it is the highest mountain of Austria and should be on the bucket list of every adventurer!
This holiday can be organized during the summer season for a minimum of 4 participants. Interested to join us as a solo traveler, couple or group? Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or +43(0)6642441919 for more information.
You will receive a concise alpine training given by the well known local mountain guides from Kals. You will receive an introduction to rock climbing, learn material handling techniques (rope, knot and crampon handling) and slope & ice techniques (crossing firm slopes, fall prevention and recovering, crevasse rescuing). Depending on group preferences and your alpine experience, the level of training can be adjusted to the needs and desires of the participants.
The Grossglockner ascent starts at MoaAlm or Lucknerhaus (depending on weather and group preferences). A 2 to 4 hour hike will take us to the Stüdlhütte, where we will have a break. From there we will ascent over the Ködnitzkees Glacier to practice on snow and ice. Depending on weather and group preferences we will continue towards the Adlersruh hut or turn back to Stüdlhütte to spend the night. The next morning, small groups of maximum 3 participants per guide will ascent to the summit during sunrise.
Depending on experience of participants the program can be adjusted.
The program is subjected to weather conditions, but our mounatineering week could look like this:
The Grossglockner is a challenging but reachable summit. Some basic alpine experience is recommended but not necessary. A proper fitness level is required – you should be able to climb 400 vertical meters per hour and you should be sure-footed. Also, you should not have a fear of heights due to the exposed character of the Grossglockner.
