For millions of years the elemental force of water has moulded and shaped the mountainous landscape of the Hohe Tauern! In the process it has left behind for us masterpieces of the Creation: waterfalls plummeting down into the valleys over sky-high rock faces and through deep and mysterious gorges.
Trekking – from one place to another. In rhythm with nature and looking it in the eye. This is the magic to which more and more people are yielding. In Nepal, in New Zealand, or on the road to Santiago. And in the Hohe Tauern too! From refuge hut to refuge hut, past mountain lakes and tarns, waterfalls and glaciers, and up to high passes. Time and again in the valleys and mountains new miniature worlds will reveal themselves before your very eyes.
The Großglockner’s summit soars 3,798m into the heavens. Higher than any other summit in Austria. A magic mountain in the midst of the Hohe Tauern’s fascinating high mountain world, where more than 100 peaks top the 3,000m mark. Scale the most impressive summits of the Hohe Tauern in the company of our certified mountain guides!
