You can have your luggage transported along the way on the Glocknertreck. Set off with a mountain guide and a maximum of 12 people with pack horses from the Lucknerhaus, at the end of the Kalser Glocknerstraße, for a two-day hike. The horses won't accompany you after the Salmhütte 8,654 ft (at 2,638 metres), one of the region's oldest shelters.
From there, you'll set off alone for a night camp on Austria's highest shelter, the "Adlersruhe", which sits at 11,322 (3,451 m) above sea level. You'll start the second day with a hearty breakfast so that you're all set up to take on the firn ice ridge. With the professional support of a mountain guide, you'll climb to the Kleinglockner's summit edge. A narrow firn bridge, which separates you from the summit, is a challenge for even the most courageous mountaineers, but you'll be rewarded with incredibly breath-taking and memorable views once reaching the top.
