tatra mountains in winter

What interesting you can find in Jägihorn via ferrata in Switzerland? What does Lower Austria offer to hikers? Which via ferrata in Rax is the best and why did the Brenta Dolomites delight me so much? You will learn all this by reading the posts on this website. And that’s not all! A few years ago I went on via ferrata also in the Lienz Dolomites, where I climbed, among others, the great via ferrata Panorama and in the Dachstein area, where I faced the difficult via ferrata Johann and Irg 2. I climbed Breithorn, which is considered the easiest four-thousander in the Alps, and recently I was mountainbiking in bike parks in the Alps. Read what MTB trails are offered in Austria’s Saalbach and Leogang and the French 3 Valleys.

Biking and hiking in Kitzbühel Alps

Wide, nice valleys, beautiful views from the top of the mountains and the best – 20 km downhill! It was my first biking trip in mountains and I have to repeat it :)

wildfahrte ferrata

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.

haid-steig

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.

raxalpe

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.

hochschneeberg

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 :)

hohe wand ferrata

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.
