Aspirant guide Alessandro wants to lead you on a full day ice climbing adventure in the amazing Gran Paradiso National Park in the Alps of Italy.
Jan, Feb, Mar, Dec
There is an abundance of different valleys to enjoy great ice climbing in the Gran Paradiso park. Those valleys includes Valsavarenche, Rhemes and what is often considered the mecca of ice climbing, Cogne. Each one of those valleys offers many fantastic ice climbing routes. And, as a result of the wonderful variety in the park, this trip is open to people of different climbing levels. I will see to it that we select the perfect route for you, based on not only your skill level, but your personal preferences, weather conditions, ice conditions and avalanche risk level. And in the end, you will have one, or several days, of unforgettable ice climbing.
Our trip will begin with a brief equipment check. After that, we will take a scenic hike to our selected destination. The hikes can range from 10 minutes to 2 hours, depending on which location we choose. After we reach the desired ice fall, we will prepare our equipment and start climbing. Afterwards, we will return to the parking lot then head off to enjoy either a cold beer, or a piping hot chocolate, depending on how you feel.
While this trip is open to people of different levels, all participants should be in good physical condition.
The ice climbing in the Gran Paradiso National Park is some of the best in the world. To enjoy it for yourself, just send me a request.
There are comfortable accommodation options near the Gran Paradiso National Park that I would be happy to recommend to you.
Participants should bring the following items with them: ice ax, crampons, harness, helmet, winter mountain shoes, 30/35 liter backpack, winter dry cover pants, polartec, padded jacket, gore tex jacket, two pairs of warm gloves, mountain hat and buff, sunglasses, lip balm and snacks.
To be determined based on which specific area you would like to climb in.
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 had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
