Karin is a wonderful guide; she is very kind and has a great sense of humor. She explained many things about Austrian culture throughout the day and during the hike she pointed out many different plants which helped us really feel connected to the environment. The hike was a bit tough for me at times, but I think the difficulty was consistent with the description of the activity and the tips provided online. There were really only a few sections that were steep, but it is a pretty long hike with many gradual ups and downs. Karin was really patient when I needed to go more slowly at times. We also stopped frequently for pictures. The views were so beautiful. It is an experience I will always remember!
