1+ day Ice climbing around Alagna in northern Italy

Alagna ice climbing

Let Paolo, an IFMGA certified mountain guide, plan the best ice climbing trip for you in the impressive Alagna, in northern Italy.



1 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar, Dec

Open to everyone

All Levels


  • 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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
