Mountain hiking guide from Holiday Region Hohe Salve


Elke is a mountain hiking guide in Holiday Region Hohe Salve. Many years ago she swapped her high heels for mountain boots, to get away from the stressful day-to-day life in the office. As a local she appreciates the nature and beauty of the gentle grassy mountains in the Kitzbühel Alps. For Elke, the mountains are an anchor of calm and it is this calm that she wants to share with her companions on guided hikes too. Anyone who would like to decide to go on a hike with her understands that it is not the time or the height of the summit that matters, rather it is the feeling of being together that is important.

Elke profile

  • checkMy energy-packed space in the Kitzbühel Alps is.... an old acorn tree on the route to the Kraftalm above Scherzerbauern.

  • checkWhat makes my home so special.... the mountains, the traditions, the culture and being together - ‘dahoam is dahoam’.

  • checkThe emotional connection I have with the Kitzbühel Alps and why.... I have a deep connection with nature. Being able to enjoy the mountains is not a matter of course and they are to be treated with reverence and respect.

‘There are moments that cannot be captured with a mobile phone or a camera, only with your heart.’
