Hohe Tauern Guide, Bergführervereinigung
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.
Alpindis, Daniel Breuer
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.
Berge leben - Hans-Peter Breuer
As a mountain guide I am allowed to accompany other nature and mountain enthusiastic people on ski tours, freeriding, climbing or in the high mountains, so that they reach their summit goals on safe way.
