Join me on this adventure through some of the most beautiful mountains in the world: the Alps. During this 2 day trip, we will climb three stunning peaks in the Monte Rosa Massif: Pyramid Vincent (4,215 m.), Punta Gnifetti (4,549 m.) and Balmenhorn (4167 m).

Come with me on this journey. I promise you will feel like you are walking amongst the clouds. You will contemplate everything that the Alps, the most extensive mountain range in Europe, have to offer. You will be dazzled by all the natural beauty that surround this region, from colossal mountains to humble flowers.

The spectacular Monte Rosa Massif is located right at the border between Italy and Switzerland. This mountain has a unique character, as it is one of the tallest guardians of this region.

Our first trek and the beginning of our adventure, will be the perfect way to acclimatize. We will climb Pyramid Vincent, a mountain that lies entirely within Italian territory.

Pyramid Vincent is just one of the many wonderful things that will be waiting for you. We will also reach another unique destination, the highest shelter in Europe, Cabanne Margherita (4,549 m.).

Pyramid Vincent and Cabanne Margherita won’t be the only places you see. I will take you as well to Punta Gnifetti (4,549 m.) and the Balmenhorn, also known as Cristo delle Vette ( 4,167 m.) That means we will reach an altitude of over 4,100 meters in just two days.

So if you find yourself looking for a rush of adrenaline and the right dosage of adventure, in a short amount of time, please send me a request. I will be more than happy to show you all these astonishing places.

If you are looking to learn more about mountaineering and ice climbing, I can also take you to the Cascate di Lillaz in the Cogne Valley.

About the guide

guide profile img

Born in Aosta in 1970, I am an aspirant mountain guide and a passionate climber. For me, the lightning strike came in while climbing Punta Tzan with some friends: from that day on, my whole life has been the mountains and practicing mountain sports and activities.
Among my most significant ascents are: Mattehorn, Mont Blanc du Tacul, Aiguille Verte, Monviso and Mont Maudit, among others. I will be happy to guide you around my home region!
