Join Peter Habeler on his favourite mountain - guided hiking tour of the Zillertal alps nature park with Peter Habeler

Which mountain sports enthusiast doesn’t dream of going on a tour with a world-famous alpinist, and maybe get to hear a story or two about his expeditions? With Peter Habeler, who has already climbed five eight-thousand-metre peaks, you have the chance to do that. The peak of his career was the first-ever ascent of the Mount Everest without additional oxygen together with Reinhold Messner in 1978. On this hike you can conquer your inner demons and climb your own “Everest”! Our tour takes you from the mountain station of the Ahorn cable car (2,200 m) to the Karl-von-Edelhütte (2,238 m). From there, the trail leads over grassy soils and scree fields up to a saddle where the steep, rocky climb begins along the western ridge, leading to the summit of Mount Ahorn (2,976 m), which towers more than 2,300 m above Mayrhofen! From the summit we can now enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the surrounding mountains, before we treat ourselves with some refreshments at the Edelhütte.
