Short Trips

Some impressions of selected short trips I have done.

2014 Packrafting in the Austrian Alps: Salza

For the fourth time I’ve been packrafting on the Salza River.

2013/14 New Year’s Eve in the Alps

Four days in a cabin somewhere in the Alps with a wonderful group of people.

2012/13 New Year’s Eve in the Alps

Just another little backcountry trip during New Year’s Eve.

2012 Alaska: Happy Valley & the Arctic flats

This is not an actual travel report, I just want to show some pictures of the time I spent in Happy Valley, located 130 kilometers south of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska’s far north.

2012 Packrafting in the Austrian Alps: Salza

Another Packrafting trip in the Eastern part of Austria.

2012 Packrafting in the Austrian Alps: Gail & Möll

Packrafting trip in the Southern part of Austria.

2011/2012 Two snow shoe hikes in the Alps

Together with a few friends I celebrated the night of New Year’s Eve in a cozy cabin up in the mountains, two days later I was on another overnight hike, this time with our tents and a different group of people.

2011 Alaska: Failure in the Brooks Range

This trip was supposed to be my “big hike” in 2011, unfortunately I had to cancel it. Now I want to explain the reasons, maybe this is help to other people.

2011 Packrafting in the Alps

Looking at my upcoming time in Alaska I wanted to improve my packrafting skills a bit. Therefor I rafted on two nice rivers in the Alps which wasn’t as hard as expected due to the relatively low water levels. This also includes some hiking with my friend Eva.

2010/2011 Snow show hiking in the Alps

A short winter hike through the snowed up mountains in South Austria. The goal was to escape the loud New Year celebrations and to test some new pieces of gear at the same time.
