Explore Hohe Tauern National Park with a Mountain Guide
An experience you will long remember
Setting out on a one- or two-day adventure in Hohe Tauern National Park led by an experienced mountain guide – would that be something for you? If so, the mountain experiences offered as part of our summer program are sure to appeal! Whether you prefer to climb to the top of the highest peak in Salzburger Land, the Grossvenediger, as a member of a mountaineering expedition, or simply want to gaze at it in wonder during a Sunrise Tour, one thing is certain: You are bound to be captivated by the glorious nature of Hohe Tauern National Park. We also offer numerous other alpine tours, all of which promise unbridled enthusiasm and fascination. We wish you a fantastic time in our mountains!
Hohe Tauern National Park is one of the most imposing high-alpine landscapes on Earth. 266 three-thousand-meter peaks and 342 glaciers are just waiting to be explored and conquered. And some of the most beautiful mountains are lined up right here in Wildkogel-Arena Neukirchen & Bramberg. As you enjoy a first taste of rock climbing, traverse a glacier or tackle an easy fixed-cable ascent accompanied by real pros, you will constantly discover new faces of the Venediger Group. If you have long since graduated from rookie status, you might well be tempted by the Two-Valley Glacier Trek: setting out from Krimml Waterfalls, via Krimmler Achental and the Krimmler Törl to Obersulzbach Valley.
The ultimate adventure for well-conditioned, surefooted summiteers is undoubtedly a tour of the Grossvenediger led by mountain guides. An ascent of Salzburg’s highest 3,000er (3,657 m) begins in Obersulzbachtal and takes 1 ½ days to complete, including an overnight spent at the Kürsingerhütte. Even if you have your sights set on a different 3,000er, a mountain guide is still the safest plan of action: This might include the Keeskogel, Larmkogel, Dreiherrenspitze, Hoher Gabler or Grosser Geiger, one of the most imposing 3,000ers in the Venediger Group, or perhaps even the Grossglockner itself (3,798 m), the highest mountain in Austria. Thanks to state-certified mountain guides, you can look forward to unforgettable National Park experiences and scenery that is quite beyond compare.
The mountain guides in our region are exceptionally well trained and have known the Hohe Tauern range since they were children. They share whole new perspectives with interested mountaineers.

Hohe Tauern Guide
Hohe Tauern Guide In summer, we accompany you on high tours of Salzburg’s tallest mountain – the Grossvenediger, either as part of an alpine touring course or on a glacial trek from Krimmler Achental to Obersulzbachtal – or are you more in the mood for a little bit of rock climbing? In that case, the "Kronprinz Rudolf", a family-friendly fixed-cable climb, close to the Rudolfshütte in Stubachtal, is probably just what the doctor ordered.
In winter, too, you can experience your own personal adventure with us. Be that a ski tour, including the thrill of a glacier, to the top of the Stubacher Sonnblick, a beginner’s ski tour of the Ronachgeier in the Kitzbühel Alps, or, in springtime, a high-alpine ski tour in the Hohe Tauern. Whatever you prefer, we will be right there at your side during your personal mountain adventure! For a great alternative to skiing, how about snowshoeing through incomparable winter landscapes. However, if you are in the mood for a little more action, maybe ice climbing with the experts from Tauernguide is just what you’re looking for.
Work, stress, reports, stats, deadlines, annoying bosses. Enough! A pair of hiking boots, a rucksack, a good mountain guide and out into nature. A rushing stream, alpine meadows, then things gradually take a turn for the better. With my destination clearly in mind. With every drop of sweat that runs off my brow, the pressure eases. Finding my way back to who I truly am. Letting go. Escaping completely.
As passionate alpinists, we live for our profession. We make every effort to cater to all of your needs and wishes, in order to guarantee your safety and allow you to have a wonderful time.
With a sense of fun and joy, we lead you to the top of the most beautiful and breathtaking summits, so that you have an absolutely magical time in the mountains.
Safety is always job one! We spare no effort to insure courses and guided tours that are near-perfect when it comes to safety and quality. And because our employees regularly attend courses to update their skills, we are able to offer the very latest standards of technology and safety.
Yet another reason we can guarantee such exceptional quality is the small size of our groups, tailored to the types of courses and tours, so that we can give everybody the attention they need and deserve, and so that we can achieve the highest success rate possible. In order to conquer the mountains as safely and comfortably as possible, we also provide modern equipment for participants to borrow, regularly inspected and maintained to the highest standards.
