On this tour, you will cross two impressive landscapes that could not be more different from one another.
Firstly, you have to cross the Schladminger Gletscher (glacier) with a view of the 20 km² karst area ‘Am Stein’, walking through somewhat dull-looking rocky scenery only complemented by a couple of mountain pines and patches of grass. Yet, if you look closely, you will find interesting fossils and dolines in this rocky desert. Between the sharp incised surface and the dolines, new flora and fauna emerge under the freshly melt snow: alpine roses, gentians, nigritellas and anemones.
Beware: in summer, you need to make a reservation for the Dachstein Gondola here.
