active mountain SATURDAYGlacier tour onto Magerstein peak
Extreme mountaineer Hans Kammerlander learnt how to climb and go mountain climbing in the Rieserferner/Vedrette di Ries group, opposite the Zillertal Alps. On our tour, crossing the glacier to reach the summit of the Magerstein/Monte Magro, we will be following in the footsteps of one of the greatest alpinists of our times. While not being technically demanding, the tour still rewards us with a spectacular view.
