Grossglockner trek

Hohe Tauern – Trekking around the Grossglockner

By on 12. July 2016

Austrian Alps for short treks

I had an opportunity to visit the Austrian part of the Alps at the beginning of July 2016. The Alps are a wide trekking area and it was not easy to choose the exact location. There were mainly two attractive options for us – Dachstein or Grossglockner. We finally made the decision to visit the Grossglockner area and I have to say that we chose the right option. The whole trip took five days – two days for transport and three days of trekking. There are some tips for you below.

Transport and travel costs

We went to Austria by car – this is probably the best option for people from Czech Republic. Distance Brno-Vienna-Heiligenblut takes around 7 hours (depends on weather, car, and traffic) and we were completely exhausted after that. Your travel costs depend on distance, your car and driving skills. You will have to pay for Motorway Vignette, 10 days is enough and it costs around 9 EUR. But there are more costs waiting for you later on. If you want to visit The Grossglockner High alpine road, you have to pay 54 EUR/car/30 days. More information about National Park Hohe Tauern fees.

Planning of the Tenerife trek

What is the best option for Christmas holidays program? The best option is definitely visiting Tenerife – Canary Islands and sleep in the wild nature. The weather is good all year long, the views are amazing, there are no predators and really easy treks. So we went there and enjoyed our Christmas time. There is some information below, so you can follow our steps. You should know that we did not want to swim in the ocean, we wanted to experience great outdoor adventures.

Targets

Pajsaje Lunar, Guajara, Las Canadas, Pico de Teide, Masca, whales or dolphins. (more…)
