3 Days

Jan, Feb, Dec

We will meet in the charming town of Arco next to the beautiful lake Garda and then make our way to the South Tyrol region.

South Tyrol is a truly picturesque area of the highest beauty; mountains, lakes and forests blanket its landscapes.

During the winter the area’s many rivers and waterfalls transform into a winter wonderland, a world of ice that is perfect for climbing.

This trip is perfect for those who want to begin their ice climbing journey, I will explain clearly the techniques and methodology in an engaging and fun manner.

Equally if you are experienced in ice climbing but would like to focus on some specific weaknesses, then I will be delighted in helping you strengthen your knowledge and technique.

We will have the possibility to explore various climbs over the 3 days in numerous valleys, including; Valle Aurina, Colforsco Val Badia, Val Gardena and Val Martello

I know this region intimately and can select the best locations for the group depending on our requirements and desires.

If you want to learn how to ice climb or further develop your skills, then sign up now to this fantastic 3 days in the stunning South Tyrol wilderness and I’ll be waiting to get on the ice with you and start exploring!

If northern Italy in the winter is what you want then consider this fantastic day of freeride skiing near Arco for great fun in deep powder snow!

About the guide

Certified mountain and ski guide and is directing since 15 years the Mountain School Mmove (former Friends of Arco). In the past, his passion had driven him for weeks to the solitude of the Alps, of Patagonia, or of the icy heights of the Karakorum to climb famous walls and peaks and open up new routes.

Today his priorities have moved. He wants to share his enthusiasm for the mountains - while working with his guests and in his spare time with his sons, as his father has once done with him. Mauro Girardi is very proud on its enthusiastic and highly qualified team of local Mountain-and Ski Guides, Hiking Guides and office employees. Mmove is not just a mountain school, but is a steadily growing circle of friends, who would like to realize great experiences. We like to Mmove it !!

Mmove is the only mountain school in the Alto Garda region with a guaranteed weekly program and activities for all tastes and the whole family.

The team is formed by 8 IFMGA/UIAGM Guides, so if Mauro is not available, one of the other highly qualified members of the team will be the guide.

This was a good trip. I joined with my 7y/o daughter who has no climbing experience. She had a good time. Although I am not sure how to change this, from my personal perspective, the trip would have been even better if there would also be a bigger challenge for adults.

My son and I were planning a trip to climb in Arvo, Italy and wanted a good start to our trip so we booked a guide with Explore-share.com, and it was the best thing we did. Lupe and the staff handled every inquire we had, were really professional then ended up hooking us up with MMove based in Arco. We booked a private guide for 3 days of rock climbing and we boosted our grades in those days. Our guide Matteo was bloody awesome, amazing guide who just gets that little bit more out of your. Our grades jumped thanks to Matteo. Day 1 was sport climbing to check what we could do, single pitches and going hard. The afternoon was a multi pitch. Then for day 2 and 3 we pumped out multi pitch after multi pitch. Best 3 days of climbing in a long time. My Son went from grade 15/16 to leading 23's. This 3 days started our trip and gave us the confidence to go on climbing for another 2 weeks. Thanks guys for an amazing wicked time We will be back soon
