  • Ascend Trentino’s highest peak.
  • Discover the stunning views of the Italian Alps.
  • Spend the night in a cozy mountain shelter.


Follow me to the heart of the high mountains in the Italian Alps surrounded by glaciers and alpine history. On this two-day ascent to Trentino’s highest peak, Presanella, you’ll discover vertiginous walls, stunning landscapes and the exciting vastness of the mountains.

This easy ascent will be done in 2 days. On the first day, we’ll hike for 1.5 hours up to the Denza refuge. There, we’ll review climbing techniques, safety maneuvers and special tips for the following day, and relax during the afternoon with a cold beer. Then, on day 2, we’ll go up the Moraine up to Vedretta della Presanella. From there, we’ll go along the glacier and the rocky connection between Presanella and the Cima di Vermiglio. We’ll continue towards Freshfield saddle and the longed-for summit. The itinerary may change due to participants’ skills or weather conditions.

This trip is recommended for physically fit and healthy participants. If you have any type of physical or health condition, please let me know before the trip.

About the guide

An IFMGA certified mountain guide (among other things), I grew up in Mestre (Venezia), while climbing historic Venetian towers and walls during the 1980s.

I've always used climbing and skiing as an excuse to travel and have been lucky enough to visit Norway, Sweden, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Croatia, Morocco, Greece, Nepal, India, Kenya, Turkey and many other wonderful spots.

Married to Elena and father to Filippo, Nicolo and Mattia, I'm forever faithful to...my van, with which I share a large part of my life!
