Whether I’m on the rock face, in the air, in the snow or on ice – I love all the ways you can travel in the Alps and I let myself be guided by my passion and respect for nature.

But when the sun shines into the camper’s windows, I’m happy to leave my to-do list until the nighttime... ;-)

Home is where our camper is…and it loves returning Upper Austria.
