Aspirant IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide
My name is Marco Bigatti, nicknamed “Il Biga”. I was born in Milan, I started climbing in 2006 and since then I have not been able to tear myself away from the vertical world. I turned my passion into a job, becoming Mountain Guide in October 2017, the first mountain guide that lives all the year in Sardinia.
I experience the mountains from a 360-degree point of view. I have practiced all disciplines of climbing in the Alps: rock climbing, alpinism, ice climbing , as well as ski mountaineering.
In addition to alpinism, I love pure sport climbing, seeking out the best climbing sectors throughout the entire Alpine range. But it was in Sardinia that I found a paradise of crags, in particular in the south-west of the island, where you are able to enjoy all types of climbing throughout the year.
I offer climbing day or trips for beginners or experienced climbers who need a guide, multipitch packages for those who want to live an alpine experience, climbing courses, all-inclusive climbing holiday with accommodation in our nice B&B by the sea, guided trekking and mountain biking tours.

Really enjoyed the Pan Di Zucchero, perfect for beginner climbing like myself. Marco was a great guide, lovely to chat too and I felt really safe during the climb.
Marco is a perfect climbing guide. He takes maximum care of his guest. I felt absolutely safe all the time. He knows the local area best and finds always shadowy routes which was very important at this time 34°C.
The multipitch we did at Pan di Zucchero with Marco was fantastic. A great spot to climb, with amazing views. Marco was also a great guide – friendly, experienced, and willing to pick us up from our accommodation which was very helpful.
