    Intensive training in surefootedness and head for heights

Let a mountain professional show you important tips, tricks and exercises so that you will be more experienced and effective in the mountains in the future.

Surefootedness is one of the elementary skills for all mountaineers, hikers and climbers. The focus is not only on general safety: those who have learned to set their feet deliberately and evenly also save strength and nerves. In difficult terrain, light rock or combined terrain, surefootedness is even indispensable. Let a mountain professional show you important tips, tricks and exercises so that you can be more experienced and effective in the mountains in the future.
A second important aspect for many mountain tours, such as for walking on black marked mountain trails, via ferrata and of course for all alpine climbing tours and many high altitude tours is the "freedom from giddiness". However, a head for heights is not a bad thing per se. Because caution and fear of a possible fall are better companions than arrogance and too much self-confidence. Your guide will help you with practical exercises and with assistance for situation analysis in mastering and correctly assessing exposed and exposed passages.

"Why wander far and wide when beauty is so close?
The Ammergau Alps between Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Füssen are an absolute gem.

Its crossing belongs on every hiker's bucket list. Why? Here you will experience Bavarian culture, ridges and peaks in a unique way.
The Vivalpin hike is anything but banal. Narrow, sometimes exposed paths and trails make the tour exciting and varied."
