    Come with me on this 3-day ascent to Piz Bernina and Piz Palü. This classic circuit is one of the most popular traverses in the Alps. Still, it is so special that it always makes for an amazing and new experience. Join me for a tour that every mountaineer must take!

    Locals also refer to the white ridge on the Piz Bernina (4,049m) as Biancograt. Thanks to its spectacular conditions, with an elegant uphill and a flat finish on a thin rocky cliff, it is famous around the world. It is also the highest peak in the Eastern Alps.

    For the descent, I will guide you through the classic route on the Italian side. We will then spend the night at the Marco e Rosa hut.

    The ascent to the Piz Palü (3,901 m) will take place on the third day of the tour. Finally, we will descend towards Diavolezza.

    This tour requires a good fitness level and some technical climbing technical skills. Please note that the minimum number of guests for this tour is 1 and the maximum 2.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I was born in 1988. Thanks to my parents, I learned to live and love the mountains. Already at 16, at my hometown Ticino, I started practicing mountaineering and other activities with my friends. Creativity reigned in every tour we went on.

    Later, I developed my ski mountaineering and climbing techniques at the Alpine Club (Lugano). In 2008, I moved to Switzerland to complete my studies. I got my Biology Degree (2011) in Basel and my Master's in Neuroscience (2013) in Zurich. Yet, my love for the mountain remained alive and strong all along. This helped me take the next step: my training as an Alpine Guide.

    I like to take my guests on a variety of activities. I mainly focus on wild and little known spots, as well as in niche activities like traditional climbing, which is based on the use of natural protections alone. My personal favorites? Long-climbing and exploration ski-mountaineering. I also offer hikes on the wild Ticino mountains, Val Varzasca or Val Bavona. In the summer season, I recommend the High Way of the Verzasca for a long excursion, or a less crowded peak of the Bernese Alps, to enjoy nature away from the most popular spots.

    Overall, respect for nature is central to all my activities on the mountain. I am a big believer in diving into nature fully, to achieve a boost of positive energy and well-being, and get to know the mountain through sports, nature and culture.
