Hiking know-how - how we understand it
Certified Hiking and Nature Guide - what’s in it for you as a guest?
An inherent interest for mountains, pleasure in outdoor activities and communication with other people are the ideal basis: The officially certified training includes navigation in general; with map and GPS; navigation without any artificial tools; emergency handling; planning and execution of hiking tours of one or more days endurance; night hikes; calculation of en-route times, equipment management and meteorology. Three full days must be calculated for the basic course. The advanced training will cover nature studies and cultural aspects. The aim is to supply the necessary tools to structure hikes, both interesting and instructive. The course includes information about geology and wildlife of both, the Alpine region and the German Mittelgebirge, but also aspects like architectural styles, covering the wide range from the Romanic to contemporary styles. Several training hikes complement the theory lessons.
Activity in Summer & Winter
Summertime in this very region of the Allgäu, rich on lakes and mountains, provides an almost inexhaustible range of activities.
Bicycle tours along and around the Allgäu lakes, primarily of course the lake “Forgensee” trail, pass roads for racing bicyclists, tough trails for mountain bikes and flat tours that appeal to the occasional bicyclist - they may all conveniently be reached in short time.
Watersports - Swimming, sailing, windsurfing - right at your doorstep - lake “Weissensee” and a large number of lakes nearby provide the perfect setting.
Wintertime as you like it - romantic, pleasurable, full of sports activities. A hike through winter wonderland, a snowshoe hike, skating on the frozen lake, a romantic ride with a horse drawn sleigh or a racy toboggan ride.
Carvers’, Boarders’ and Free Riders’ Eldorado - Ski areas for all levels of skill line up almost in front of our doorsteps - from Tegelberg to the neighboring Tirol mountains, to Pfronten and Nesselwang.
In case you prefer cross-country skiing - the Weissensee track is interconnected to the neighboring tracks - more than 200 kilometers waiting for the ambitious athlete.
