Description

Come with me on an experience to remember near Lake Garda. On this trip, I aim to teach women the basics of rock climbing. Together, we’ll experience a week immersed in the world of climbing.

Throughout the trip, you’ll learn about the different gear, techniques, safety system, movement and dangers on the mountains.

I’ve planned this trip so that you’ll enjoy varied and fun days. They’ll be a mixture of theory and mono-pitches, together with climbs on both via ferrata and mountainous ledges like the Sentiero dei Contrabbandieri.

The location for this trip is the Sarca Valley to the north of Lage Garda. There are excellent climbing spots here for all levels- we’ll have lots to keep us entertained. We can also camp in the valley, so together we’ll pitch our tents in the campsite and sleep there every night.

I’ll provide all the gear. You just need to show up with your tent (that can also be arranged if you don’t have one.) You’ll also need to have a decent base level of fitness because we’ll be climbing for several hours each day.

This is a unique experience in Lake Garda and one you do not want to miss. Get in touch today to sign up.

I also offer a three-day trip for intermediate and advanced female climbers in the Sarca Valley if that suits you better.

Mountain Guide

I was born in Bozen and I have been living all my life long in Fassa Valley, Dolomites. That's why my native language is ladin, a reto-romanic language spoken around Sella.

My big passion besides traveling is mountains and guiding because I love to show the people the beauty of the mountains.

I was a member of the Italian National Alpine Ski from 1990 to 1997 when I became Ski Instructor. In 2009

I became an IFMAG Mountain guide. I guide in the Dolomites, Sarca valley, Sizialian vulcanoes, Ortles Cevedale area, and Sardinia.

Excellent morning on the via ferrata, Marika was very good guide and had a great knowledge of the area , would recommend this trip to anyone!

Marika made those 3 days the best! She understood exactly what we wanted as beginners in back country skiers but still pushed us. The Dolomites are truly a World Wonder. Skiing in those settings far from the crows with the safety of a trained mountain guide… what else?

5.00

I couldn't recommend a climbing guide more highly. Marika is energic, friendly and gave us just what we were looking for, moderate multi-pitch climbing in beautiful settings in the Dolomites, followed each day by the best restaurants and bars. She knows everything about climbing, the routes and as a local, the history of the region. She was also meticulous with safety and kept us in line where needed. Marika met all of our expectations and more. You won't be disappointed when you climb with her.

Our family with kids ages 5, 9 and 12 had a wonderful day with Marika at a via ferrata! She was amazing at catering to the needs of our 3 very different children including one who was feeling anxious. Our 5 year old was completely enamored with Marika & wanted to stay in Italy with her! In addition to being a lovely person I felt safe the entire time and she was appropriately cautious as you would want anyone to be with your children. Highly highly recommended!!
