Intermediate or advanced climbing for women in Sarca Valley

Come and join IFMGA certified mountain guide Marika for this only-women 3-day trip in an amazing spot for rock climbers: Acro and the Sarca Valley.


3 Days

Apr, May, Jun, Sep, Oct, Nov




Don’t you think that climbing among women has a different taste? I am offering this 3-day trip exclusively for intermediate or advanced rock climbing women, around the southern Sarca Valley, Italy.

The Sarca Valley and the town of Arco, at north of Lage Garda, are considered the world’s climbing mecca. On its sunlit walls and beautiful cliffs we will have access to a wide choice of routes and itineraries. I guarantee the patience and compromise that only a female guide can offer.

This region has limestone’ s structures up to 1,200m altitude allowing to perform safely all types of rock climbing techniques. Under expert guidance you will improve your climbing skills or test your abilities in some challenging routes.  

We will choose the perfect itinerary depending on your skills and go for a climbing route everyday. One of the options is Santa Massenza, offering a beautiful view of the lake and characterized by challenging vertical to slabby climbing. We can also try Placche Zebrate, located directly below Monte Brento and containing over 30 routes and multi pitch options ranging from 5.8 to 5.11. Surely, there is a wide variety of options in the Sarca Valley.

This area is one of the birthplaces of modern rock climbing. It became famous in the early 80s when climbers from all over the world established different kind of routes in its limestone walls. Nowadays, Acro helds every year The Rockmaster Climbing Competition and retains its popularity with new generation athletes like Angy Eiter or Adam Ondra.

So, if you are up for this women-only rock climbing experience, please contact me! I’ll be glad to help you to improve your skills in the wonderful landscape of Sarca Valley and Arco!

I also offer an only-women tour for beginners in this same area. You can check it out here.

Mountain Guide

I was born in Bozen and I have been living all my life long in Fassa Valley, Dolomites. That's why my native language is ladin, a reto-romanic language spoken around Sella.

My big passion besides traveling is mountains and guiding because I love to show the people the beauty of the mountains.

I was a member of the Italian National Alpine Ski from 1990 to 1997 when I became Ski Instructor. In 2009

I became an IFMAG Mountain guide. I guide in the Dolomites, Sarca valley, Sizialian vulcanoes, Ortles Cevedale area, and Sardinia.

What people are saying about Marika



Our family with kids ages 5, 9 and 12 had a wonderful day with Marika at a via ferrata! She was amazing at catering to the needs of our 3 very different children including one who was feeling anxious. Our 5 year old was completely enamored with Marika & wanted to stay in Italy with her! In addition to being a lovely person I felt safe the entire time and she was appropriately cautious as you would want anyone to be with your children. Highly highly recommended!!



Marika was amazing! She was very knowledgeable of the history of the Dolomites and the terrains. She made us feel very safe and comfortable- would highly recommend another tour with her! Excellent guide and highlight of our Italy trip!



Every family leader should take their family to a trip like this! Such a bounding experience



Marika is an amazing guide and a really nice person! we had a great time. She was not pushy but helped us to overcome our inner barriers and complete more that we expected. as a trainer Marika is absolutely professional and very passionate and open to share her knowledge, experience and love to the climbing. I really hope we will come back to works with her soon, since it was unforgettable



My wife and I had an incredible experience on our via ferrata trek. Marica was so helpful when it came to directions, choosing the right trail and even provided a rain jacket for my wife as she did not have one. Marica was very safety conscious and we had complete trust in her abilities and knowledge of the area. Thank you
