Description

The Pearls of the Southern Alps.
About 45 km from the Cote d’Azur rises the Argentera with his 3297 m above the other mountains.

In fact, it is the highest point of the Maritime Alps. The very rich flora and fauna of the National Park where it is underlie its position as the main base for mountaineers in the sunlit Alps.

Monviso, which is further north, governed alone, and with more than 3800 m, the Po Valley. From far and wide, it is indeed visible from far and immediately falls in the eye. Its isolated location makes it unique in the Alpine landscape.

It is one of the mountains I enjoy the most!

Please get in touch with me if this unique adventure sounds interesting. I will be happy to guide you up there and let you live an unforgettable experience.

The next planned dates planned are from September 10, 2017 to September 14, 2017, You can also contact me for different dates.

About the guide

- UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide -

Mountaineering means for me passion and profession. That’s why I’m always happy to share this passion, enthusiasm and experiences with my clients in our beautiful mountains.

After climbing lots of challenging summits in the Himalayas and the Andes and numerous technical climbs in the European Alps, I followed the prestigious mountainguides course at the famous ENSA, the French guides school in Chamonix. The “capital of European mountaineering” so became my new summer base for now already so many years.

I like to work everywhere in the European mountain range in France, Switzerland and Italy. Offering particular and shared mountain experiences to great mountain lovers and families is one of my greatest pleasures but I also love to coach motivated young climbers to independent and safe mountaineers.
Therefor I can offer you challenging week programs of various technical levels but also tailor made programs to fulfil your most beautiful mountain dreams.
Let the mountains be yours.
