Description

Whether you are looking for just a one day trip or multiple days of Nordic walking, I can build the perfect trip for you.

What is Nordic Walking?

Nordic walking is a form of exercise where we use specially designed poles and walk with a specific technique. It’s an excellent way to exercise and is suitable for all ages and all fitness levels. It’s low impact and can bring a wide range of health and fitness benefits.  On this trip, I’ll show you everything you need to know about the technique, and we’ll explore beautiful Piedmont along the way.

This trip is customisable. An option for one day could be a walk around the Mount Rosa East Wall. There you’ll be able to take in the awesome views of this impressive mountain.

We could also discover the amazing woods of the Vigezzo Valley as we further reap the benefits of your Nordic walks.

On another day, we could explore Lake Maggiore and take in views of the lovely blue water and enjoy walking through the lush scenery that surrounds it.

This is a wonderful experience you don’t want to miss. Request to book now, and we can start planning the trip that best suits your needs.

Tour guide, Naturalist Hiking guide, Tour leader, Nordic walking instructor

I obtained a degree in foreign languages and literature specializing in cultural history and Spanish in 2001. After having spent some time abroad and a 9-month study period in Salamanca Spain and working for the Spanish Tourism Authority in Milan in 2005 I has decided to follow my formation by attaining the Tour Guide licence in 2006, Naturalistic Hiking Guide licence in 2007 and a new degree in Tourism Management and Promotion and Tour Leader licence in 2009.

I have been starting working as a professional guide concentrating on naturalistic and cultural excursionistic tourism, carrying out environmental education activity collaborating as a didactic operator with Parks, Agencies and Associations, preparing and leading rehabilitation walking programs for patients with psychotic symptoms. I also participated to programs to promote typical territorial characteristics and produce of Ossola Valley.

At present I’m living in the Ossola Valley at the foot of the Alps behind Lake Maggiore and I’m working as a professional guide specialised on naturalistic and cultural excursionistic sustainable tourism and leading most French, Spanish and American groups on walking and hiking tours on Lakes Como, Maggiore, Orta and Ossola Valleys Alps. In the past years I’m putting my experience as a leader in designing walking tours for travel agencies and tour operators to plan and set new walking itineraries, both guided or self-guided. In 2017 I obtained the licence of Nordic Walking Instructor and in 2018 I’ve obtained the qualification of Official Guide of Val Grande National Park.

Having the licence of both Tour Guide and Naturalistic Hiking Guide gives me the possibility to share different kind of information with my guests, to comply their different interests and to combine days of visits to the ones of hiking.

I love travelling and discovering different places and relative local people, trodding along paths and deeply sensing nature and the mountains. I’m greatly tied to the surrounding territory, I try to show visitors what lies within and without things, taking in the landscape by slowing down the pace, savouring beauty and curiously observing traces of the past which still exist around us.

The areas where I operate:
