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!
