Become an Ace of Hearts even in winter and circle the Villgratental in four guided stages on your skis away from the crowds. A total distance of 58 km, 5.510 vertical meters of climbing and 6.185 m of descent await.
Seen from a bird’s eyes view, the approximately 50 mighty peaks of the Villgraten valley seem to paint a heart in the landscape, in the middle of which lie the two mountaineer villages of Innervillgraten and Außervillgraten. A few years ago a signed route, known as the alpine “Herz-Ass (Ace of Hearts), has been established. Following the heart of the Villgraten valley we worked out a multi-day ski-crossing which has it all: four traverses, multiple ski descents each day, the conquest of the highest peaks of the valley (e.g. Marchkinkkele, Hochgrabe und Hohes Haus) and a local mountain guide, who knows the particular stories of the valley and who will convey a feel of an intimate relationship with this valley. Each day we leave our accommodations in the valley floor and climb the high peaks surrounding it. Following the descents through the mysterious beauty of Villgraten’s nature the shuttle will take us back to our accommodations. Depending on your personal needs there are several options to choose from when you pick your accommodation.

Sufficient strength for daily backcountry tours with ascents from 1,000 to 1,200 vertical meters. Good switchback technique is required for the skinning ascents. It is recommended to be practiced in dealing with ski crampons. The descents require safe skiing in alpine mountainous terrain.

    Dass es toll und eindrucksvoll wird, das haben wir uns gleich gedacht, aber dass unsere Erwartungen am Ende so übertroffen werden, damit haben wir nicht gerechnet. Erstens natürlich die wunderschönen und tollen Touren bzw. Überschreitungen. Die Landschaft ist einfach einmalig. Dazu die echt tolle, professionelle und nette Führung und Organisation. Zweitens auch die Ferienwohnungen Alfonstüberl. Angefangen bei den sauberen Wohnungen, über die neue, schöne Sauna, das perfekte Essen von der Zita, das Frühstück bis hin zur echt außergewöhnlichen Gastfreundschaft von allen. Wir haben uns wie "Einheimische" gefühlt.
    Die Region, das Tal und die Leute sind der Wahnsinn und wir kommen gerne wieder. Die Herz-Ass Fans Caro, Josef und Julia
