A united team for responsible tourism
The Trail Angels
“The best times in life are those little moments when you feel you’re in the right place at the right time, with the right people.” This is how the inspiring journey of the Trail Angels began in 2015. Off the beaten track with a genuine sense of individuality in a sea of conformity. And a never-ending enthusiasm for a different, responsible tourism. Diversely experienced, always curious, tactfully unconventional, skillfully innovative and above all consistently team-oriented. „Smells like Team Spirit“
This is us, the Trail Angels.

The Trail Guru
The certified geographer is naturally not native to the city. It’s just not his habitat. The mountains and trekking in pristine nature make him feel much more at ease. He is therefore enthusiastic about the vision that man and nature can be reconciled after all. With the help of responsible and sustainable tourism, for example.
A majority of his career was dedicated to working for the Hohe Tauern National Park, the largest national park in the Alps. Firstly, through the management of the protected area and then as the Managing Director for tourism in the region. Then he co-founded Trail Angels, together with his brother Werner and Nathalie. This step enabled him to fulfil his passion, product development for responsible tourism, even more consistently.
The Booking Queen
Whatever this Travel Executive is all about, she does it with incredible energy, paired with good humor. She started her career from scratch: right after tourism school, she joined the Hohe Tauern National Park to make a name for herself over the years as an energetic implementer, and expert in booking and quality management.
These were the best prerequisites for starting her own business with the Trail Angels. Since then, she has increased her know-how to an international level, whereby she manages to put every sustainable tourism product into the status “Ready for Booking” seemingly effortless. With persistence, consistency, and – we are pleased to repeat – her infectious good humor, also for project partners.

The Lord of the figures and more
You can tell by the academic titles: the business economist and enthusiastic climber initially pursued a scholarly career at university. He lectured at various universities, set up numerous courses and penned over a dozen specialist books. Nevertheless, he turned his back on academic pursuits, in order to translate his knowledge into practice from then on.
As a management consultant, board member, company founder and most recently a pioneer of sustainable economic models, he has dedicated himself to the development of wooden towers for wind power plants and to sustainable tourism. He co-founded the Trail Angels with his brother Günter and Nathalie Reichhold, where he has more than just an eye for the figures and contributes through his many years of strategic experience.
The IT Wizard
The computing expert actually wanted to stop programming in this life altogether. After a few exhausting years, he consciously left the hectic world of international finance behind him and ended up in the Mölltal valley via a detour in sports and event management – where he was on a roll with some of the biggest players in tennis and swimming.
Henceforth he lived with and from nature as a sheep farmer and mountain hiking guide. Admittedly, his expertise did not remain hidden for a long time and after two years with the National Park Region, he promptly joined Günter and Nathalie at the Trail Angels. Here, he not only runs the international funded projects with great calmness and sovereignty but has also rediscovered his love for programming.

Sonja Thaler
Travel Management Specialist


The Good Fairy (on maternity leave)
A sprained foot, a misplaced piece of luggage, a missing signpost, dark clouds on the horizon or the special wish for the next dinner: There are hardly any requests that Sonja has not been able to deal with at the Trail Angels Info & Booking Center. Her ambitious approach to solving all these issues cannot be denied.
Regardless of whether its travellers, service partners or project partners – they all value Sonja’s competence and commitment in the Booking Center. Since 2017, Sonja has been contributing to the Trail Angels team, having previously proved her skills in the information, booking and service partner management at the Carinthian National Park Center and at Destination Millstätter See.
The Scout for all cases
Stefan is predestined for scouting vertical heights: As a state-certified Mountain and Ski Guide and extreme climber, he is most at home in the mountains. But the environmental systems scientist and devout vegetarian can really be placed anywhere. He already stood his ground in Trail Scouting in the plains of the Puszta, where, as we know, there are hardly even hills to be found.
Stefan has been with the Trail Angels since 2018, having previously worked for an eco-bureau and also as an independent Mountain Guide and alpine author. Tolerance and a love for details are the strengths of the native Bavarian, who, according to his profession, is in addition to trail scouting, always in demand when it comes to pure outdoor competence.

Bettina Posch
Travel Management Specialist


A Haven of Calm with Energy

Tourism and music are in her blood. Although Bettina is the youngest of the Trail Angels, she already has several years of experience in tourism. And she likes to devote her free time to her second great passion, music. Now Bettina actively strengthens our team in the Trail Info and Booking Center. A multifaceted challenge that she masters with calmness, consistency and a lot of energy.

The communicative Mountain Enthusiast

Steffi supports the management when she is not traveling the world or climbing the mountains with climbing rope, a bike or the ice axe. Not only because of her enthusiasm for travel and sports, she completed her studies in tourism and leisure business, but also because sustainable regional development is close to her heart. With her enthusiasm, motivation, passion for nature and her lightness she fits perfectly into our team.

The multifaceted cheerful soul

After six long years in the metropolis of Carinthia, our new Trail Angels youngster moved back to her home in Upper Carinthia. There she loves to spend time with her family, friends, chickens and dog and also likes to travel the world. Her affection for her homeland, coupled with a university degree in business administration and law and a lot of ambition, motivation and passion for nature, make her the ideal Trail Angel.

Magician with a polish performance guarantee

Shine in all corners, not everyone has that. But Simsalabim, and our Ulli has conjured up cleanliness in the office again. She can be relied on, she overlooks nothing, banishes dirt from our tables and always surprises us with her humor. We know that our Ulli is something very special. Most people underestimate that a magician, when she flits through the office, notices a lot about an office and appreciate her familiarity very much.

The omnipresent guardian angel

Beate is not only a family manager, honeycomb (wife of a beekeeper), educated banker/business economist and former landlady , but also supports since the beginning of 2022 with her helpful and positive nature especially the management of the Trail Angels. But even if it tweaks elsewhere, she is always immediately on the spot. Born in a big city in Germany, she visited the homebase of the Trail Angels for the first time when she was only 5 months old. In the following years she not only fell in love with the Mölltaler landscape and nature, but also with a local who persuaded her to move to the mountains. Why she fits perfectly into our team is quite clear: her willpower to go one step further, her passion for detail and the non-existent fear of challenges.
