Description

Are you looking for a different type of vacation with your family? Do you want your whole family to experience an adventurous journey? Then this rock climbing course for families in Courmayeur, in the Aosta Valley is for you!

Courmayeur is a municipality in the heart of the Aosta Valley, a mountainous region in Italy. It is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, bordering the italian city of Turin. It also borders Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France and Valais, Switzerland

Both, the municipality of Courmayeur and the whole region of the Aosta Valley, have very unique hills, pitches and rock formations. Hence, they are perfect places to practice rock climbing. Here, you’ll find over a hundred sports’ climbing areas, that offer climbs for everyone. Thus, they are the ideal location for a course like this.

Also, there is a fantastic wall in Courmayeur. The wall is ideal for adults or children who are attempting their first climbs. It allows you to practice in a very safe environment, while learning all the basics.

This course will take place in the wall. You will learn all the basic techniques for rock climbing and gain confidence for your next trip. However, if you want to get out and explore the Aosta Valley, we can easily arrange something.

Because this trip is open to everyone in the family, safety will be my number one concern. So I will be with you the whole time, making sure we follow all the safety measures needed. My main goal is that everyone is safe while enjoying themselves and having fun. 

If you want to bring the family along, don’t hesitate and send me a request. It will be my pleasure to be your guide in this wonderful adventure.

About the guide

I'm an IFMGA-certified guide, a mountaineer, a writer, an architect, a mother and an ex-Ice World Cup athlete. I love to share my passion for the mountains with others, especially people with disabilities, children and women.

Born in 1971, I received my Bachellor's degree in Architecture from the University of Torino in 1998. I lived in Innsbruck, in the Austrian Alps, from '98 to 2003 and then moved back to Courmayeur, in Italy, where I've been living since 2004.

As an ice climber, I won the national Italian championship in 2007 and got in second in the 2006 World Cup (in fact, from 2001 to 2008, I always finished among the first 5 athletes).

Come join me to discover the best rock and ice routes around Courmayeur!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
