The first warm-up climb is about one hour round trip. Easy climb for about 30 min with a difficulty A/B/C/ optional D. This will be a good intro ViaFerrata before heading to the next level. The optional second climb up the red route on the right. Difficulty A/B/C/D can be taken or you rest at the Guttenberghaus and enjoy a drink until the rest of the group comes back from this second climb. Together we will head back to town and enjoy a local dinner at a cozy restaurant.

Laserer Alpine ViaFerrata! A scenic route with a difficulty of B/C and about a 2h trip. Today we'll have some time to take it easy so you can enjoy your free time on your own or with your new friends and guides doing what you desire. Explore the friendly town of Gosau or put your legs up at the cozy and beautiful home and enjoy the view. Your guide can give you the recommendations that you are looking for.

Day 4

After dinner, we'll take you all back to our home in Gosau. We will introduce the next day adventure and head off to bed

Day 6

Anna and Johann ViaFerrata.  This will be one of the longest and hardest climbs. We probably see some snow! Dress in layers and bring a smile to this route. The tour is rated difficulty D/E and takes all day ~10h. You need to be in great shape to manage this route. The elevation gain is over 5000ft and a round trip of about 6miles. Great adventure! Amazing views! 

Day 7

Klettersteig Heidi! 'Heidi is the moving story of a little orphaned Swiss girl who finds happiness in her Alpine paradise and touches those around her with her warm heart and high moral values..' (houseofswitzerland.org) Just like Heidi, we will find happiness on this route like we did on the previous once. We will have plenty of time to take in the incredible views once again and breathe the fresh mountain air before we head for a last local dinner.
