My Training, Equipment and Useful Tips for Climbing Aconcagua
Starting on the 5th of January 2019 I am setting out on a climbing attempt of the highest mountain in South America – Aconcagua (6961m) in Argentina. I am photographing and documenting the whole expedition on assignment for the tour operator Grajales Expeditions. It will take us about 20 days to climb the mountain over the Polish Glacier route. I am already very excited to go on this adventure. Here you can find out how I prepared for the Aconcagua expedition, what equipment you need to bring and other useful things for the climb.
Auf Skitouren in den Dolomiten
Im März wurde ich vom Hotel Marica auf eine Skitourenwoche im Eggental (Val d’Ega) eingeladen. Mit drei Skitouren in den Dolomiten, einer Schneeschuhtour und einem Skitag war für mich bestes Programm geboten. Hier sind meine Eindrücke dieser Woche in den winterlichen Bergen von Südtirol und Trentino.
An Amazing three-day hike around Lake Königssee in Berchtesgaden
I recently had the opportunity to organize a three-day adventure with The North Face for my followers and readers as part of the “New Explorer” campaign. Five fellow explorers and me ventured into the wildest part of the German Alps, on the hunt for beautiful views, unique landscapes and the best light to capture our experience. We had the greatest time roaming the wild backcountry in perfect fall weather and climbing to the the remote summit of Funtenseetauern (2578m). Read on to find out what we were up to.

Exploring and Relaxing Around Cat Ba Island – A Less Visited Part of Halong Bay
Cruising between the fascinating karst islands of Lan Ha Bay, swimming, kayaking, biking, hiking and drinking some beers on the beach of a private island with 20 other backpackers - this is what we experienced on the Halong Hideaway Tour, a 3 day/2 nights cruise to Halong Bay from Hanoi.
Our Adventure on the Fire Mountain
Climbing Merapi is an incredible experience. It is allowed to hike Merapi without a guide and it can be done by anybody with basic fitness. The true summit is a little more difficult, be careful! If you are traveling around Java you should definitely go on a sunrise hike of Merapi. It was one of the greatest things we did in Inonesia!
Climbing the Sleeping Lady
During our first high altitude experience, we battled cold and technical conditions with little equipment, felt the rush of going to our limits and our British friends almost froze to death. Iztaccihuatl is an excellent option for your first 5000m climb and is a fascinting mountain.
