Ski Touring in Obertauern

Unforgettable summit experiences in the Radstädter Tauern

Think of nothing - forget the daily routine - become calm. Every stride sets you freer and freer. Pristine, endless nature. You will make your way ever closer to the summit, as if carried there by your dreams alone.

A ski tour through the magnificent Tauern range is one of the most beautiful mountain experiences you could ever imagine. The ascent treats you to glorious views of the winter scenery. The only thing that can top this feeling, is the joy of skiing back downhill afterwards.
