Description

The Aosta Valley in Italy is very well known and popular with visitors from around the world. Located in the Alps of Italy and surrounded by a number of welcoming towns, it is a great place to take a vacation. Along with the fantastic accommodation options, there are also a number of wonderful activities visitors can enjoy as well. And, on this 2-day trip, you will get to enjoy one of the most popular activities in the valley: ice climbing.

During this trip, I would like to guide you on an ice climbing trip you will never forget. There are a number of great ice climbing spots you can choose from during this trip. And, because the trips lasts 2 full days, you will get to enjoy several of those options. The one place we will definitely be visiting and enjoying in the Aosta Valley is Cogne, which is home to some of the best ice falls in the entire area.

Due to the variety of ice climbing options available during this trip, people of varying skill levels can enjoy it. However, due to the physical nature of ice climbing, regardless if you are a beginner or expert, it is important that participants are in good physical condition.

Filled with beauty, both natural and man-made, the Aosta Valley is an amazing place. That beauty only gets better as you get to admire it while scaling a frigid ice fall. To join me on this 2-day adventure, please send a request.

I also offer a great via ferrata trip in the Susa Valley, near Torino.

About the guide

My name is Piergiorgio. I was born in the warm south of Italy and grew up in Florence where I first started climbing.

At the age of 21 I graduated with a degree in Forestry and Environmental Sciences, yet rock climbing had energized my life in such a positive way that I realized that I had to live fully in the vertical world.

It was then that radically transformed my life to pursue my dream of becoming a Mountain Guide and so I moved to Torino to gain the experience and skills required to pass the rigors of my trade.

I'm an IFMGA Mountain Guide.

Join me! I can’t wait to share my greatest passion with enthusiasm and awareness in my favorite environments. After gaining experience and increasing my ability in each discipline, I participated in the IFMGA Aspirant Mountain Guides course and graduated in 2017. Nowadays, my greatest passion is to share with enthusiasm and awareness the most incredible environment: our Alps.

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!
