Escape To The Mountains For A 4-Day Dare Greatly Hiking Trek In National Park Hohe Tauern




The itinerary can vary depending on weather and trail conditions as well as on the physical conditions of participants. Changing the itinerary lies entirely within the discretion and responsibility of the mountain hiking guide. Safety of all participants is our top priority!

Having said that this is what the itinerary looks like.

Day 0

You arrive in Austria at the hotel where you’ll spend your first night. Depending on whether you opted for a 1-on-1 or a group Trek Experience, this is where you’ll also get to know other trek members. And of course I’ll be there too.

As people from all over the world participate in this program, you will have to make your own travel arrangements.

Day 1

The first day of our trek we’ll spend slowly hiking up and into the mountains to get to the first mountain cabin / refuge where we’ll spend the night.

We pass through pristine alpine meadows and past clear mountain lakes. With a bit of luck we’ll see and hear mountain marmots as they warn the members of their family of our coming.

Day 2

After spending much of day 1 ascending the mountains, today is a relatively easy day because we spend most of it with hardly any ascending or descending.

It makes it easier to enjoy the spectacular and expansive views of the majestic mountains – many 3,000 metres high and higher – around us.

After a bit of a sneaky ascent at the tail end of this day, we get to spend the night in a spectacular location overlooking one of the most beautiful glaciers in Austria.

Day 3

Once we’ve finished breakfast and packed our lunches we descent towards the glacier. The trail takes us right up to it, so we get to enjoy it in close up after getting an overview of it yesterday.

Once on the other side of the valley that is cut in half by the glacier, we start a long but easy ascent towards a pass. Once there it’s a relatively short and easy last stretch to the cabin / refuge where dinner will be waiting for us.

Day 4

On our final day we close the circle and return to where the trek started. After having hiked pretty easy and clearly marked trails for the first 3 days, today we get to do quite a bit of boulder hopping.

After 3 days of developing your mountain hiking muscles this shouldn’t be a problem for you.

A final descent and we’re back where we started 4 days ago.

In the evening, during or after a celebratory dinner, we recapitulate experiences and lessons learned.

Day 5 / Extend your stay

After breakfast it’s time to say goodbye. It’s up to you whether you immediately travel home or extend your stay and discover more of Austria. Perhaps discover some of Italy too, since that is only a short drive south of us.

Why A Hiking Trek?

Because in the mountains you can hear yourself, feel yourself and connect with the beauty, serenity and freedom that they hold. They offer the ultimate escape from the melee of your life.

You need to breathe and take some time out. The mountains breathe with you, holding you in their arms, bringing you back to life and offering an authentic look at who you are, giving you a change of perspective. The mountains are a place of great healing and regeneration and 4 days on a hiking trek in the mountains of Nationalpark Hohe Tauern in Austria will leave you feeling like a whole new you.

How Does It Work?

You will be guided along mountain trails, from cabin to cabin. 4 Days of hiking in one of Europe’s largest national parks. All you need to do is put one foot in front of the other, everything else is taken care of, the route pre-determined and circular, the mountains ancient and full of the wisdom of the ages, your guide, specially trained to lead you into nature and into yourself.

For 4 days you will….

  • See the sun rise and the sun set.
  • Find space and freedom within your mind and body
  • Notice a wider, higher perspective – quite literally – as you ascend the mountains
  • Find peace and calm in the solitude that only the mountains afford
  • Leave the world behind to find a window of change in your life
  • Feel the embrace of Mother Nature
  • Come back to yourself and go home revitalised forever changed.

We’ll spend most of our time hiking trails at altitudes between 2,000m and 2,500m. Though physically challenging, the trek is doable for anyone with at least a reasonable level of fitness.

To make sure you enjoy your time spent in the mountains extensive help is provided to prepare you for the experience. Everything from gear advice to physically preparing yourself – we’ve got it covered.

What are you waiting for? You want to relax and slow down? You want to feel younger and more energised? This 4 day hike…. Is for you!

You’ll never forget your first hike in mountains as beautiful as the Hohe Tauern and so many clients come back time and again to experience the tranquillity and inspiration on offer.

Who Is Gerdi Verwoert?

I’m a Dutch former project manager, consultant and interim manager with 20+ years of experience in the corporate world. After recovering from a serious burnout I left that stressful world behind and moved to the Austrian Alps. Now I live and work in an environment that is the opposite of one I left behind. A world where mountains and Mother Nature determine the rhythm of life instead of the pressures of career and society.

Gerdi and Paco © 2017

Since moving to the mountains I guide people of all ages, but in particular families, corporates and entrepreneurs away from the stress and disconnection in their life to a place where they can truly relax – to a place where they can reconnect with themselves and those around them.

I have a special talent for taking people on trails – in mountains and in life – they would never think of hiking by themselves. I help people reach heights they didn’t think themselves capable of and in doing so help them leave the stress of their lives behind, reconnect with nature, with themselves and the people they care about.
