pollino national park

Get to know the best kept rock climbing secrets of the magnificent Pollino National Park in southern Italy (Calabria/Basilicata) with local aspirant guide Riccardo.


+1 Day

Jan - Mar, May - Dec


Learn to climb independently on multi-pitch climbing routes or just let me show you around Pollino National Park. This incredible natural area is a climber’s paradise!

Pollino National Park is the largest national park in Italy. It is located in the south of the country, in Basilicata and Calabria. The park offers a pristine natural environment and a wide variety of flora and fauna.

The course option is aimed at those who have already completed a basic climbing course. The minimum required level is the 5b / c second. To start with, you’ll learn about the gear you’ll need. After that, you’ll practice setting anchors and abseiling, among other things.

However, if you just want to enjoy a fun day of climbing, I can take you to the best spots. This national park has many hidden gems that only a local guide can tell you about! Also, I’m a passionate climber and love sharing my knowledge of the local mountains with others.

Some of the climbing spots we might go include Frascineto and Timpa Porace.

You could bring your friends and family and fit this day around your Italian vacation in the province of Consenza.

Contact me now and let’s start planning for an amazing adventure. I promise a day filled with excitement and, in addition, a great learning experience!

Mountain Guide

I am an aspirant guide and climbing instructor based in Campobasso, Molise, Italy. My passion for mountain activities began at a young age when I first saw what rock climbing was about during a trip to Gran Sasso. Since then, the mountains have represented a wide range of emotions for me: awe, a sense of adventure, even fear. Eventually, I felt the need to share these feelings with others and decided to pursue a career as a guide. I became an aspirant mountain guide in November 2014.
