Climb Marmolada (3,343m), the highest mountain in the Dolomites, from Rifugio Pian dei Fiacconi

Giovanni is a wonderful guide, with perfect knowledge of the route and the technical aspects of the climb. Would highly recommend Giovanni as a guide for the Dolomites and elsewhere.

Summer mountaineering custom trips in Germany, Austria, Italy or Switzerland

Bernd was very organised and an incredible guide. Bad weather meant the climb we wanted to do wasn't possible. He was flexible enough to take us to another location in the alps that was just as impressive and challenging but far better conditions .
