Type of Trip



  • Learn new skills or challenge your existing ones.

  • Explore a route thought out just for you.

  • Discover the beauty of this outdoor sports paradise.


Let me create the perfect trip just for you! Whether you are an experienced climber or you are just looking to learn the basic tips, there’s an option for you in Alagna, Italy.

On this one- or more-day adventure, participants with no experience can take part in a day of climbing school to learn the basic technique and skills. You’ll easily become a confident climber and you can spend one more day putting your skills to practice. For those participants with more experience, we can go multi-pitch climbing on one of the local ice-falls of the valley.

Either way, we’ll review ice climbing techniques and skills, safety measures, rescue and practice with ropes, and all about snow, weather and avalanches. Then, at the end of the day, we’ll enjoy the best food and drinks of the area.

If you are looking for more custom-made adventures, check out the trips I offer to heliski in Monte Rosa and off-piste ski in Alagna. You can also request a combination of the three activities and spend the best vacation ever!

So get ready for an incredible trip in the Italian Alps made just for you. You’ll fall in love with Alagna and its possibilities.

About the Guide


I was born in Valsesia in 1967. I live in Rassa, a pretty village in the South of The Monte Rosa.

I successfully completed a selective UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide Course in Italy, the highest internationally recognized qualification for instruction and guiding in rock and ice climbing, mountaineering, off-piste skiing and ski touring.

I have been guiding in the Alps since 1993 and have professionally led treks and climbing expeditions in Nepal, South America and Africa. Since 1997 I also work as an examiner for the UIAGM/IFMGA Italian Mountain Guide School involved in tuition, guide safety, climbing and ski techniques.

I speak Italian, English and French. I will help you to improve your knowledge of the mountains. I hope together we will have a great experience. Trips: Himalaya, Patagonia, Perù, Greenland, Africa, Scandinavia, and …. The Alps.

I like: All mountain sports, to ski in powder, climbing at the seaside, pasta, pizza, fresh fish, good food and wine…… and gelato! I dislike: Driving the car, fast-food.
