Cogne is famous for its fantastic ice climbing. Located in the Aosta Valley of the Italian Alps it is a great place to visit, explore and enjoy. And on this trip, which can last for one or more days if you wish, I would like to take you to the ideal spots based on your skill level and personal preferences.

With variety comes choice. And for this ice climbing trip in Cogne, choice is exactly what you will get to enjoy. There are challenging walls that will push your skills. And there are easier walls that are perfect for those just starting in the world of ice climbing. Either way, Cogne has you covered.

Furthermore, due to the sheer number of amazing ice climbing spots throughout Cogne, our meeting point will be predetermined based on the spot chosen. Moreover, there are is a wide range of great accommodation options to choose from for those who want to enjoy the ice walls for multiple days. Finally, to give yourself a break from the ice climbing, you can also visit the beautiful Gran Paradiso National Park, which is full of amazing views and wildlife.

While this trip is open to people of all ice climbing skill levels, it is important that all participants are in good physical condition.

For anybody who loves ice climbing, Cogne in the Aosta Valley is the place to go. To see why, just send me a request.

About the guide

I was born in 1981 and live in the Aosta Valley, surrounded by the wonderful peaks of my region.

I started guiding in 2016.

I like all mountain activities: freeride skiing and ice climbing in winter, ski mountaineering in spring, mountaineering in the high mountain in summer and rock climbing whenever possible!

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!
