Ready to inspire, authenticity, comprehensive knowledge of natural history, experience, fantastic training – the list of unequivocal attributes which make rangers, guides and mountain guides in the Hohe Tauern National Park stand out; and we could go on. Our rangers and guides are experts when it comes to the natural area and to surviving in the mountains.
Knowledge, flair and plenty of experience
The rangers, guides and mountain guides in the Hohe Tauern National Park are pros when it comes to nature and the mountains. They don’t just guide you safely to the highest summits and bring you back down again, they also provide their visitors with in-depth information regarding how the Hohe Tauern came into existence. They promote an understanding of the natural surroundings, understanding of the unique animal species that live here and impart a sense of the processes and sequences that take place in the natural surroundings.
Adventure-filled National Park
Follow our rangers and guides on the “Water’s Journey” and get to know the loveliest parts of our region, that the water has created over millions of years. At the beginning of your journey into nature, a visit to the Multimedia presentation about the Hohe Tauern is in order. The impressive images will give you an idea of what awaits you in the natural surroundings. And then you can get going – any amount of exciting tours and trips await.
Getting close to the animals
The wilderness tour takes you into the high mountains of Mallnitz, where you can observe the wildlife of the National Park at close quarters. With our rangers you can get close to the red deer, chamois and bearded vultures. And you have a great chance of seeing ibex at the Glocknerhaus in Heiligenblut. Our rangers know when and where!
Become a ranger yourself – Junior Ranger project
Are you between 13 and 15 years old, and would you like to get a taste of what the responsible, interesting and variety-packed job of being a National Park ranger is like? Well, welcome to the Junior Ranger project. During the 14-day training to become a “Kärntenmilch Junior Ranger”, 15 participants find out lots of information about the animals, plants, geology, glaciers and life in the open natural surroundings. As well as lots of interesting facts, action, fun and adventure awaits too. It is free to take part – so register straight away!
Guided hikes in the National Park
The programme of guided hikes in the Hohe Tauern National Park really is something to behold. The tours proceed across unspoilt Alpine pastures, through larch forests, right the way through to mountain ridges that provide plenty of views. The Moharrunde is an easy tour for beginners, while the tour via the Lonza requires a bit more expertise and endurance. The ‘Elendrunde’ is true to its name (‘misery circuit’), being long and arduous. The National Park hiking day is a special event, where anyone who wants to head out on a hike meets up.
“Guided” summit conquering on the Großglockner
Maybe you are not so interested in the animals and prefer to find out about the mountains? If you have always wanted to stand on the summit of the Großglockner, then the best thing to do is join a mountain guide. Especially if you are planning a demanding tour across the Stüdlgrat or through the Nordwand to the rooftop of Austria, going with an experienced mountain guide might quite possibly make all the difference.
