Hiking across the largest glacier in Austria
The largest glacier in Austria, the Pasterze lies within the Glockner Group of the High Tauern mountain region in Carinthia, directly beneath Austria’s highest mountain, the Grossglockner (3,798m). A glacier hike under the watchful eye of a nationally approved mountain guide is a unique experience that will make you appreciate the natural wonders not yet tarnished by human hands. Equipped with crampons, a hip belt and rope you will start the journey with a funicular and then make your away along the mighty glacier. The guide will share their knowledge about the glacier while you have the chance to admire its shimmering blue crevasses and icy rock formations. A very special point of the hike is the so-called Hufeisenbruch, where you can view the mighty towers of ice that have formed over centuries right at the foot of the Grossglockner.
