Description

Are you looking for a stunning winter adventure in a breathtaking location? Then join me on this ice climbing adventure in the Aosta Valley!

Aosta is an alpine valley located in northwestern Italy, bordered by Switzerland and France. Surrounded by iconic peaks of the Alps -Matterhorn, Mont Blanc, Monte Rosa and Gran Paradiso- the area is a perfect mountaineering destination. In addition, during the winter it offers more than 600 frozen waterfalls ideal for ice climbing.

On this day outing we will discover an amazing spot. The frozen walls of Cogne Valley, Grisanche Valley, Valsavaranche and Ferret Falls, among others, are on the menu.

Keep in mind that I’ll choose a route according to your skills and wishes. No matter if you are a beginner or an expert, be sure that we will have a great time!

So, if you want to visit a fabulous frozen park, please get in touch with me. Let’s have an unforgettable ice climbing experience in the Aosta Valley!

If you prefer, we can practice this same activity in Lombardy or Piedmont.

About the guide

Aspirant IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide
My name is Marco Bigatti, nicknamed “Il Biga”. I was born in Milan, I started climbing in 2006 and since then I have not been able to tear myself away from the vertical world. I turned my passion into a job, becoming Mountain Guide in October 2017, the first mountain guide that lives all the year in Sardinia.
I experience the mountains from a 360-degree point of view. I have practiced all disciplines of climbing in the Alps: rock climbing, alpinism, ice climbing , as well as ski mountaineering.

In addition to alpinism, I love pure sport climbing, seeking out the best climbing sectors throughout the entire Alpine range. But it was in Sardinia that I found a paradise of crags, in particular in the south-west of the island, where you are able to enjoy all types of climbing throughout the year.
I offer climbing day or trips for beginners or experienced climbers who need a guide, multipitch packages for those who want to live an alpine experience, climbing courses, all-inclusive climbing holiday with accommodation in our nice B&B by the sea, guided trekking and mountain biking tours.
