Six years ago, I planned to travel while on a break from my job in Salzburg, Austria. I had aimed to travel to several countries in South America and climb a peak that was over 6000 meters. However, things did not go according to plan and within a week I was stuck in Ecuador with my then-mountain-guide, who is now my life and business partner.
I grew up in the Tyrolian Alps where my passion for mountaineering started from a very early age. I discovered amazing peaks back home with my dad and the Alpine Club, to which I contributed to for about a decade, organizing mountain adventures. Apart from climbing, I am also into mountain biking, paragliding, running and many other adventure sports.
Discovering the world, meeting people and experiencing other cultures are just some of the things that make travelling something very special to me. For me, being traveller is as exciting as being a host — it's about sharing what you love and having a good time!
I'm happy to help with your Ecuador travel plans and sharing insights. I look forward to getting your holiday planning started!

Mountaineering is my absolute passion and also my specialty. Having been climbing for over 30 years and summited important mountains all over the world, I'm confident to say that I would be a valuable asset to any climber’s planning session.

For intermediate and advanced climbers, I'm happy to act as a peer for evaluating ideas, helping with suggestions, developing special plans, etc.
I am also an expert at including other trip elements including visiting cities, experiencing local culture, learning about and trying the food and other highlights! I shouldn’t also forget island hopping to the Galapagos :)
Apart from Ecuador, I have a great network in Peru and Bolivia and I'm expanding even more! So, after your Ecuador adventures, I can help you go further international.

Elisabeth's best travel experience
So far for me, the best experience travelling was a quite challenging tour to Bolivia. As a team of 5 climbers and guides coming from 5 different nations, we rocked the Bolivian mountains and then the other highlights there. We were successful on all peaks and it was a number of them: 4 peaks of over 5000 meters and 5 more with an altitude of more than 6000 meters.
Do you want to share an epic adventure of that style??? Come with me!
