Today, we head to the picturesque Austrian village of Ischgl in the Land of Tyrol (Landeck), which stretches right below the world-famous ski resort of Silvretta Arena Ischgl-Samnaun in the Paznaun valley.
We chose to travel along paid Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse road, a mountain freeway that is 48 kilometers long. But due to various turns and stops it would be quite long…
Lets see one of the most beautiful via ferrates in the Alps. Calm surface of blue salt Traunstein lake is beneath you guarded by the Julian Alps. Dachstein bows in the distance, Totes Gebirge and Bohemian Forest are in the distance. This is Traunstein.
Alpine air, mountains, lakes, and the peaks of majestic giants, and Dachstein glacier in the background. Such are the moments you can experience at Katrin ferrate that is at the altitude of 1542 meters.
In case you are looking for a more complex ferrate then visit Drachenwand in the Austrian Alps. To get grandiose look over Mondsee and Dachstein you need to be physically fit, have inner strength and experience. Thanks to this you will enjoy your climb up the Dragon Wall (Drachenwand) and also the view of the Alps.

Winter is here again. For some, it is perhaps too cold and harsh, but to me it is the most popular season of the year. Everything is hidden under a fluffy white blanket of snow and acts somewhat calmer, and even cleaner than the rest of the year. It is also a time of winter holidays in the mountains, meeting with friends over a glass of mulled wine or it is a time of a great cabbage soup, which will warm you up in this season.
