The Aosta Valley is the perfect spot in the Alps to practice several mountain's sports. Indeed, it's ideal to have your first mountaineering experience. This program includes climbing Bethaz Bovard and in the Gran Paradiso National Park.

This is a right mix to let you enjoy all the possibilities of a great week in the mountains. As a mountain guide, I will teach you all the different techniques and let you feel safe during the different activities. We can of course adapt the planning and the program based on your time here and your wishes.

We will stay in a charming B&B in Arvier: either Lo djoua de Toueno or Au Chateau Blanc. On day 3, we will spend the night in the mountains either in Rifugio Mario Bezzi or in Rifugio Benevolo.

It will be my pleasure to guide you during these 5 days and let you spend an unforgettable time in the mountains of the Aosta Valley.

What people are saying about Andrea



Climbing the Castore and the Liskamm'Nose with Andrea has been a fantastic experience. Andrea is a skillful, friendly and knowledgeable guide. In addition to the spectacular traverse he offered us, he brought us to two very nice refuges (Mezzalama and Quintino Sella) where we spent a great time all together too. The traverse was full of speechless views, with a few tricky parts (sharp ridges, steep slopes, crevasses to avoid,...). I'm grateful to Andrea for having offered us the opportunity to achieve this challenge. I strongly recommend mountaineers to be guided by him.



Easy technically, ok physically. A nice outing in general.



Andrea nous a guidé jusqu'à la pointe de la pierre surplombant Aoste. Nous avons tous été super satisfaits de ce choix: le panorama sur les Alpes y est fantastique et Andrea nous a trouvé de la bonne neige malgré les conditions très sèches des jours précédents. En plus, Andrea a parfaitement géré les differences de niveau du groupe en donnant des bons conseils techniques. Pour finir, Andrea est très sympa et flexible et est un vrai passionné de sa région et de sa culture montagnarde. Merci a lui et a Explore-Share pour ce moment memorable!



Le tour avec Andrea s'est très bien passé. Il est vraiment très sympa et détendu. Il adaptait bien les sorties en fonction du niveau et de la forme groupe. C'était super de découvrir le Val d'Aoste avec lui car c'est sa région. On a donc pu en apprendre beaucoup au sujet du coin et il savait où aller chercher la bonne neige. Top recommandation merci ! Il nous a même invité chez lui en fin trip pour une pâte et un coup d'alcool d'Aravis. Du guide 6 étoiles, en somme ;-)



We had a great time with Andrea! It’s quite cool to go in the mountains with someone your age. Andrea is one of the youngest Italian guides but already has a lot of experience and you can tell it once up there. We felt very safe all the way, he took us to some really nice lines and we even enjoyed some powder. He was always adapting to the rhythm of the team. The views around Val d’Aoste are amazing and the great food and service in the huts made the trip very special. Andrea knows everyone so we even enjoyed special treatment… (that tiramisu was amazing…)We will come back! There is a lot more to discover around there.
