Description

The Rheinwaldhorn (3402 m) is the highest peak of the Swisss canton of Ticino. The beautiful Adula -its Italian name-lies just on the border with the Graubünden canton. I would like to take you on a wonderful 3-day ski tour and climb Rheinwaldhorn and Grauhorn (3260 m), another stunning peak in the Lepontine Alps.

Along these 3 days, I will guide you on different and exciting ski tours. We will start from Ghirone, in Ticino, and climb through the charming Carassino Valley to the Adula Hut (2493 m).

On the second day, we will reach the Rheinwaldhorn summit. You will be amazed by the spectacular panorama view it offers, from the Oetztal Alps to the Gran Paradiso. Then we will continue with a great descent over the north side to the Länta Hut.

Finally, on the third day of the tour, we will climb the Grauhorn (3260 m), with a great descent and return to the south. This mountain lies on the border between Ticino and Graubünden, north of the Rheinwaldhorn. This is an area of spectacular natural beauty, situated between the Länta and Carassino valleys.

Mountain Guide

I was born in 1973. I am a professional mountain guide and a part-time professor. My guests and their safety are at the heart of all my tours. This is why I always closely analyze weather and mountain conditions, as well as the ideal maximum number of participants.

I work hard to keep my clients motivated and help them reach their goals. Ensuring a good group experience is one of the keys to success. I believe that a good spirit up in the mountain and sharing is important to have a good overall experience.

I love spending time with friends in the mountain. If it is in winter, all the better. My favorite region for mountaineering is Chamonix. My favorite mountain? It depends on the season. But if I need to choose one, I would say Eiger mountain. Some of my favorite climbing routes are Apriti Cielo – Osogna TI, the north ridge of the Eiger mountain and the Marinelli channel on skis. In terms of terrain, I can't choose between rock and ice: mixed is the way to go.

My favorite book? Aleph, by Paulo Cohelo. My favorite film? Meet Joe Black. My favorite online sites? Many! www.planetmountain.com, www.up-climbing.com, www.gulliver.it and www.camptocamp.org

Finally, the best way to finish a tour for me is with Pommes Chips Nature and a nice cold beer. I hope you join me in one of my tours soon.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
