Difficult trails

Difficult tours in the Kaisergebirge are often associated with partly rope-secured sections and/or also easy climbing passages and exposed areas. Surefootedness and a head for heights is an absolute MUST! A large part of the difficult trails in the Wilder Kaiser require not only technique and skill but also alpine experience and very good physical condition. If you have too little experience, you are welcome to contact our state-certified mountain guides.
