Type of Trip
Arco is an historical town in the Sarca Valley, in the north of Italy. Located at the northern end of the Lake Garda, this area is also an amazing climbing destination in Europe.
The sheer cliffs of the Arco area offer a huge and varied terrain for rock climbing. I invite you to join me on a 2-day multi-pitch climbing trip, suitable for all levels, from beginners to experienced and advanced climbers. I will choose the route difficulty after knowing your previous climbing experience.
You will be amazed by the quality of rock, the genle climate and the diversity of climbing options you can find here!
The Sarca Valley has a gentle sub-mediterranean climate, due to its low altitude and the influence of Lake Garda. However, Spring and Autumn are the best time of the year to come to Arco. (You can check the tour fixed departure dates below).

. Spigolo Nascosto (Santa Massenza)
. 46° Parallelo (Placche Zebrate)
. Le strane voglie di Amelie (Piccolo Dain)

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 travelling are mountains and guiding because I love to show the people the beauty of the mountains.
I was member of the Italian National Alpine Ski from 1990 to 1997 when I became Ski Instructor. In 2009
I became Mountain guide UIAGM. I guide in Dolomites, Sarca valley, Sizialian vulcanoes, Ortles Cevedale area and Sardinia.
