Designed for experienced hikers who want to try mountaineering, this course takes you off marked paths and onto the snow and ice terrain found on a glacier.


22. - 25.07.2018

For: 4 daysPrice: 420 € per person

We will start by walking on a relatively flat area of the glacier to practise using crampons and getting used to the new terrain.

We will then progress to steeper areas, having a look at some crevasses and maybe exploring an ice fall.

The aim of this training program is to provide participants with basic knowledge of how to navigate and undertake a straightforward glacier tour.

Participants practise:

  • Navigation & map reading
  • Tour planning on a glacier
  • Rope and knot skills
  • How to walk using crampons
  • How to use an ice pick
  • Basic rescue techniques

Techniques will be practised on tours on the glaciers near the Oberwalder Hut in the Großglockner area, the perfect location for glacier courses.

Highlights: Experience your first steps on a glacier & learn new glacier techniques
