Climb one of the Alps' most mythical peaks with this expedition to the Argentera summit with IFMGA-certified guide Fabien.


2 Days

Jun - Sep


Climb one of the most mythical peaks in the Alps with this 2-day expedition to the Argentera summit (3297 meters)!

Located in the Piedmont region in northern Italy, Monte Argentera is the highest peak in the Maritime Alps. It has been a classic among climbers for many years, with old routes opened by pioneers and more modern, recently opened routes. You'll find plenty to have fun with!

The Italian Argentera Natural Park meets the French Mercantour National Park at the border within these two countries. The Argentera summit, with its solid rock peak, rises above surrounding mountains and also glaciers, lakes and forests. Stunning views abound!

During day 1, we'll climb the Corno Stella route (3050 meters) and spend the night at the Bozano mountain hut. But don't forget dinner: we'll get to enjoy delicious Italian food and wine while up in the hut!

Finally, on day 2, we'll travel the Eperon Campia route, a beautiful way up to the Argentera summit. We'll reach the final goal of our expedition by the end of the day. Once at the top, the incredible scenery will pay off the efforts along the way.

I can take a maximum of two climbers on this expedition. Take into account that you need to be in a very good physical condition and have some some climbing experience.

Join me on this program to the mighty Argentera summit. Contact me for more details or to start planning our expedition. I promise you won't regret it!

Mountain Guide

Hi! My name is Fabien Artero, I have been a mountain leader since 2008 and mountain guide since 2014. I discovered my passion for the mountains by spending time during my youth at the Valle Argentina in Italy, in the Ligurian Alps.

I slowly discovered activities that allowed me to travel the valley along the seasons...

The mountain is a large playground. We have to play according to its mood, mountain conditions, weather and finally choose the itinerary... Which renders these activities complex and exciting.

These activities allow us to discover the valleys, massifs, the countries and people living in them. Altogether is makes for an enriching mixture from any point of view.

I wanted this to become my profession because, of the mountains, human contact and the practice of exciting activities.
