Alps – large and high mountain range in Europe. Perfect for beginners as well as for experienced hikers who like thrill of adventure. I’ve visited already Alps in Austria and in Italy. I spent 10 days in region Hohe Wand – Schneeberg – Rax, where I walked a few via ferratas and other hiking trails, I was also biking and hiking in Kitzbühel Alps and in Dolomites.

Via ferrata trails in Lienz Dolomites

After few days in Brenta, we relocated to Lienz Dolomites to try more difficult via ferratas. I was satisfied! The views aren’t so amazing as in Brenta but still wonderful and via ferratas were really challenging for me, especially the last one ;)

Brenta Dolomites – the most wonderful mountains I’ve ever seen

The trail Via delle Bocchette is said to be the most spectacular via ferrata in Brenta Dolomites and one of the best in whole Alps. It’s technically easy but offers great exposure and excellent views. I was impressed!

Wildfährte – ferrata with great views and medium difficulties

One before last day in Austrian Alps I made a trip from Habsburghaus to Karl-Ludwig-Haus through via ferratas Kaisersteig and Wildfährte. It wasn’t long and hard journey so it was perfect for me this day, as I didn’t feel great.

Via ferrata Haid-Steig in Rax: I liked it!

The best via ferrata I climbed during my journey in Austria in June. It was a challenge for me, but I didn’t have to struggle to do it. It also offers great views and is pretty long.

Through thickets to Raxalpe

After closed mountain huts in previous days, this time I came across closed trails and overgrown paths, which looked like noone walked there for few years. The route ended at Habsburghaus located in beautiful scenery of Raxalpe.

Schneeberg – the highest mountain range of Lower Austria

You won’t find high mountains in Lower Austria. The highest peak – Hochschneeberg (Klosterwappen) is only 2076 m high but it doesn’t mean it’s not worth to visit. I had beautiful weather and views were so lovely, that today I had serious problem with choosing which photos to show you :)

Via ferratas in Hohe Wand

Hohe Wand is a mountain ridge close to Vienna. It’s low (the peaks are ca. 1000 m), you can quickly get there from Poland and there are via ferratas in all degrees of difficulty. That’s why I chose this place to try my first ferratas.
