Guided hiking tours & excursions for bon vivants

Hello and welcome

“There is nothing more fulfilling for me than exploring new trails and landscapes and sharing them with others.”

About me

My passion for nature has been a big part of my life since early childhood. I was lucky enough to grow up in a house with a big garden in the outskirts of Vienna. The Vienna Woods were basically around the corner. My most beautiful childhood memories are strongly connected with nature…

Ötschergräben hike

This was a truly wonderful hike punctuated by new paths, stops for photos, and at the end of the hike, a swim in the natural water formations and a beautiful lunch serving delicious, authentic cuisine. And cold beer! We are a family of six (parents with four kids in university) and after arranging a meeting spot and transportation to the hike Karin led us on a spectacular adventure through this valley. She gave us lots of options along the way. It was a highlight of our time in Austria and Karin is highly recommended as a fun, friendly and knowledgeable guide!

Myrafälle & Wachau hike

Karin was a great hiking guide. She was very personable and friendly. She was very accommodating to our needs of time. We did 2 tours with her, the Myrafalle Falls and the Wachau vineyard tour. Both were great and we had a lot of fun :) At the end of both tours we found very cute and local restaurants to have a late lunch. Would definitely recommend these tours to anyone who wants to see the countryside of Austria ;)

Wachau hike

This was an amazing experience!! Guide is so friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The hike is beautiful and the villages you visit are like in a fairy tale. Worth the money and the afternoon. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes!!

Wachau hike

I highly recommend that experience. Karin not only knows a lot about hiking, the track and the region but she’s also a very kind and warm person. We had great conversations and she immediately made me feel like I can be myself with her. Which is important when you’re spending 3-5 hours out in the mountains with someone. The route is breathtakingly beautiful and I most enjoyed that there were no other people on it. So it almost felt like a private guide through the wineyards, forests and mountains.

Wachau hike

Karin’s explanation of why she offers these hikes was completely consistent with the experience she provided. She is passionate about helping people connect with the natural world as a means to personal health and well-being. She is not overbearing about this in any way; it simply comes through in how she conducts the tour. She offered wonderful explanations of the area, both historical and natural features. She was attentive to what hiking pace worked for me. And we finished the hike with a bite to eat and an option for a local wine at a very pleasant cafe. This day was exactly the change of pace I was hoping for!

We passed different landscapes with wonderful views! I enjoyed it a lot!! If you‘re interested in nature and being outside I can highly recommend this tour with the lovely Karin! Thank you so much!
