Description

The Alps have been for a long time the world’s best spot to do mountaineering. There are hundreds of possibilities in these mountains and all these in an outstanding environment.

We can leave together for either one or several days. We will select together an itinerary based on the activity (rock / ice climbing, via ferrata, mountaineering, glacier hike…) you would like to do, also your health, technical level and the time you have for the trip.

It will be my great pleasure to show you the way in the Alps, make sure you come back home safely but also to share with you my passion about the outdoor.

If it’s your first time, then I will teach you the basics. On the other hand, if you are more experienced, you know most probably what you want to do, what you want to achieve, the summit or the wall you want to climb. Therefore, we will discuss about your plans together and define something tailor made. I will make sure your time with me in the mountains become unforgettable memories.

I come for the Aosta Valley in Italy and I know this region very well but we can of course go to other areas… Let’s just talk about it and define the best spot to go based on what you want to do!

All the booking went well with good preparation emails and information. It was a little late that we received the last update that we meet the guide in the hut, bet everything went well. The guide was very kind en helped us in the right pace to the top. The last part we went, but we go very fast downhill and the group wasn't able to walk together anymore. Overall it was a wonderful trip with great views. Thank al lot!!.

Alberto is the best guide I ever had (and I did mountaineering with quite a few, to say the least). With him, I feel confident to go to the best place I can reach, do more than I thought I would be able to do, always with security.

Nous sommes partis pendant 2 jours sur le massif du Mont Blanc. Elis nous a emmené sur la jolie grande voie Genépi. Superbe journée avec un guide sympa, ouvert, intéressant et qui sait ce qu’il fait ! Pour le deuxième jour, nous voulions aller sur la glace. Malgré que la période n’y soit pas propice, Elis nous a guidé à travers pierres et neige pour nous apprendre les techniques de piolets de traction, de crampons techniques, de broches à glace et de rappel sur ABALAKOV. Elis s’est débrouillé pour faire ce que l’on voulait malgré les conditions pas évidentes, dans un esprit de partage et de bonne humeur. Il nous a communiqué sa passion pour sa région, ses connaissances et sa technique et nous laisse un excellent souvenir ! Pour nous, c’est sûr : on restera en contact.
