I am not responsible and therefore cannot be held accountable for any personal, financial or health-related effects based on the use of this website. Every user is responsible for his own actions, especially when it comes to copying the adventures described on this site. Please be aware that some of the adventures include a certain chance of injury and always be aware of your own capabilities.

Declaration on the obligation to provide information (data protection Declaration)

The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to me. I therefore only work on your data on the basis of the legal provisions (DSGVO, TKG 2003). In this privacy information, I will inform you of the most important aspects of data processing within the scope of this website.

Contact with Me

If you contact me via the form on the website or by e-mail, your data will be stored in my inbox in order to process the request and in case of connection questions. I do not pass on this data without your consent.


This website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device with the help of the browser. They do not cause any damage.

I use cookies to make this website user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. They allow me to recognize your browser the next time you visit.

If you do not wish to do so, you can set up your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and prohibits the use of cookies by websites.

Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of my site.

Web Analytics

My site uses features of the Web Analytics service Google Analytics. Google Analytics is part of Google, based in Monutain View, California. This data may be transferred to servers in the United States. Cookies are used to enable an analysis of the use of the website by your users. The generated information is transferred to the server of the provider and stored there.

You can prevent this by setting up your browser so that no cookies are stored. I also offer you the option to disable Google Analytics specifically for this site.

Here you can disable Google Analytics for this site.

I have signed a corresponding contract for data processing with the provider. Your IP address will be recorded, but pseudonomyzed immediately. This means that only a rough localization is possible. The relationship to the web analytics provider is based on privacy Shield.

The data processing takes place on the basis of the legal provisions of § 96 ABS 3 tkg as well as the art 6 ABS 1 lit a (consent) and/or F (legitimate interest) of the DSGVO.


My concern in the sense of the DSGVO (legitimate interest) is the improvement of my website. Since my users ‘ privacy is important to me, the user data is pseudonymized. This applies in particular to the comment function.

You can request a deletion of your comments and personal data using the form below.


Social media

The icons in the header of this website link to my social media profiles on the respective social networks. Please observe the applicable data protection regulations of the respective operators.

The social sharing buttons at the end of the articles only connect to the operator of the respective service when the buttons are clicked. More information can be found at this link.

The footer of this website shows images that are recorded from the social network Instagram. Instagram is part of Facebook, based in the USA. This  means that some data may be transferred to servers in the United States. If you do not agree, please leave the website and use the function of your browser to delete cookies and the cache.

Google Maps

On individual articles of this website interactive maps of Google Maps are used. Google Maps is part of Google, based in the USA. This  means that some data may be transferred to servers in the United States. I do this in order to provide you with extended information – for example in the form of hiking maps. To make better use of the service, the service wants to retrieve your location. If you agree, please confirm the retrieval of your location via the corresponding window in your browser.

If you do not agree with the use of Google Maps, please leave the website and use the function of your browser to delete cookies and the cache.


You have the possibility to subscribe to a newsletter via my other website, www.stefanmey.com, in which you are regularly informed with information from VoyageWizard. For this, I need your e-mail address and your consent that you agree with the subscription to the newsletter.

Once you have signed up for the newsletter, I will send you a confirmation email with a link to confirm your registration.

You can cancel the subscription to the newsletter at any time. Please send your cancellation to the email address at the end of this website. I will then immediately delete your data in connection with the sending of newsletters.

Your rights

You are in principle entitled to information, rectification, deletion, restriction, data transferability, revocation and opposition. If you believe that the processing of your data violates the Data protection law or your privacy claims have otherwise been violated in such a way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the data protection authority.

However, I would be more than happy to personally contact you to resolve any problems.

You can reach me at the following contact details:
