Guided activities


I am Stephan, your certified mountain hiking guide in the Hotel Hochfilzer in Ellmau am Wilden Kaiser, and if you feel like it, come with me and I will show you the most beautiful sides of the mountains!

Join my hikes, e-bike tours and sunrise hikes. I take you to the most beautiful places and views around the Wilder Kaiser and the Kitzbühler Alps. I know the most beautiful tours and every path, even those that cannot be found on an internet website, in the many brochures or on a hiking map. The hidden paths in nature, without many tourists, with respect for flora and fauna. Wonderful days without haste – in places where silence reigns.

If you have any questions for the activities or already want to register for an activity in front, please have contact via bergwanderfuhrer-stephan@hotmail.com. Then I´ll keep in contact with you!
