Arco, Italy Guided Rock Climbing Course


Join IFMGA certified Mountain Guide, Rudi for a 4-Day Rock Climbing Course on the Limestone Cliffs of the Garda Mountains in beautiful Arco, Italy.

Not specified

Garda Mountains

4 Days

Jun, Sep, Oct




Join me on a 4-Day Guided Rock Climbing Course in Arco, Italy.

Located in the Garda Mountain Range, we will be scaling sheer, Limestone Cliffs that face one side of the town of Arco. The cliffs look like a massive wall protecting the town, as well as the the amazing Castello di Arco high atop the hills. However, this wall was built by nature itself. Thus magnifying its picturesque quality.

Depending on your skills, abilities and motivation, we will learn new things every day. Furthermore, what you learn you will do because I believe that is the best way to improve your skills.

Over the length of this course, we will go over many things. From Stand Construction and Security Techniques, to Planning a Climbing Tour to Material Knowledge. We will also cover Abseiling and Makeshift Mountain Escapes.

Some Climbing Experience is necessary to take this course. However, you do not need to be an expert. There are difficult aspects as well, but again, this is not for experts, and is open to the majority of people.

So come and let me guide you on this 4-Day Rock Climbing Course, where you will learn by doing. Where you will enjoy every minute, as you will not be learning in a classroom. Nor will you be learning on a man made climbing wall. Instead, you will be learning on the Limestone Cliffs of the Garda Mountains. Where you will get to look upon the wonderful town of Arco.

I'll be awaiting your message.

And if you are looking for something more advanced. And want to climb to the peak of the famous Matterhorn in nearby Switzerland, you can also join me here.

About the guide

My passion for nature and the mountains led me to become a mountain guide. I started my career as a pilot and, for a while, dedicated my life to university. However, over the years, my love for the mountains increased.

Since then, I have been working as a mountain guide, taking my clients on great ski and climbing adventures. I guide around my country and also around Europe: Spain, Italy, France, England, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Norway. I sometimes also go to Chile, Canada, Nepal, Kyrgyzstan and Turkey.

As an IFMGA certified mountain guide, it is a pleasure for me to guide people from all over the world to these amazing destinations. My main objective is to have you enjoy a great time in the mountains while keeping you safe.

I invite you to have a look at the mountain programs and tours I propose. In the case you want to join one of them and if I'm not available, one of my colleagues will guide you.

Rudi is an experienced mountaineer with a great deal of knowledge about the area and trails available. He coordinated closely with me to determine my skill level and objective for the hike. It was an absolutely terrific day.

Explore-Share took advantage of my inexperience. I had asked for a beginner level trip, instead, they recommended me a rather advanced trip. Neither Explore-Share nor the guide were forthcoming with information until the very last moment. The guide sold my participation to another outfit about a week before the trip. Neither Explore-Share neither the guide are trustworthy and can be relied upon in making arrangements.

Rudi was awesome. Very knowledgable and gave me a lot of climbing pointers for via ferrata. Also, super helpful with recommending other great sites in Austria and Germany. I hope to climb with him again when I’m back in central Europe.

I recently climbed the Zugspitze with you and I really enjoyed it. The guide was through Rudi who at the time could not climb but got me another guide, Toni from Garmisch. He was excellent and I really enjoyed the day. I would like to say a big thanks to Rudi and Toni and Lupe.

I loved my excursion! Rudi is a great guide who has been guiding for over a decade and has a lot of experience--yet was incredibly patient with me as more of a novice climber. For purposes of this tour, Rudi is also from the area and had a lot of local insights. Thanks for the great experience, Rudi and explore-share :-)

Rudi is hands down the best!! Such an awesome trip to the top!

Hi Everyone I don't have much experience but I thought it was a great experience. The weather let us down a bit but everything else was first class in particular our guide. That, however, was Gudrun Schweikert not Rudi because he injured his knee. She was absolutely terrific. I can only highly recommend her. Kind regards; Uwe

Our hike with Rudi was the literally the highlight of our trip!! It was the most amazing hike and Rudi was great! We would definitely hire him again, and next time we'd love to do a multiple day hike! Thank you for getting us connected to him. I am just glad I came across your information and you were diligent on getting us connected!! Hope to use you guys again, Regards, Pam and Kendall

Communication through emails was a bit bad, but the trip itself was tons of fun!

Guide was Reini. He guided us at just the perfect speed to be back in 5 hours at the alpspitzbahn top station. Highly recommended. Great experience - first via ferrata!

A perfect day!

Was a great tour! We did Geierwand Klettersteig instead of Alpspitze due to snowy conditions, and guide was Moritz Filger.

Rudi is a fantastic guide. He speaks fluent English! He is interested in who you are, he motivates you in a relax way and gives you a helping hand. He was a great instructor for a group of women. Rudi thinks about safety as well. I will hire him the next time!
