About the guide

guide profile img

I grew up with my family in Patagonia, Argentina. My parents emigrated here from northern Italy, close to the Alps, after the the Second World War, looking for a better life and new opportunities.

My father, Felipe Frasson, nicknamed “Pippo” by his relatives and friends, fell in love with Patagonia, the Andes and the outdoor lifestyle, becoming a great rock climber, alpinist, genuine adventurer and explorer in the 1960- 75’. He did many successful expeditions and first ascents in Patagonia, Argentina and also in the Peruvian Andes.

During my childhood and adolescence, I spent long summers and winters with my family hiking, skiing, climbing and paddling in Bariloche and Patagonia, my place in the world. After graduating as a Physical Education teacher, lifeguard and a qualified mountain guide (member of AAGM), and after travelling all around Patagonia, Chile, Europe and the Dolomites, I founded SENZA LIMITI ADVENTURES.

As a guide, I want to pass on my passion for the mountains, nature and the outdoor lifestyle on to others, allowing me to share with visitors from all over the world the natural beauties of this magic land of adventurers & explorers.
