    Are you ready for this 5-day ice climbing adventure in Val Varaita? My invitation is for you to join me on this 5-day frozen adventure in the beautiful valley of Varaita in the Italian province of Cuneo.

    It was in 1977, in Val Varaita, that Italian ice climbing was born and in this same valley the first international ice climbing meeting took place. Participants will be able to climb in this historic place, located in front of the majestic Mount Monviso (3841 meters). 

    Known for its great ice conditions, climbers will be introduced to ice climbing techniques as well as the use of climbing tools. And after a challenging day of ice climbing on the Valeria or the Limo Nero frozen waterfalls, participants will enjoy the amazing Italian hospitality.

    Suitable for beginners as well intermediate skiers, if you are ready for this adventure in Val Varaita request to book this trip!

    If you are looking for another winter adventure in Italy, you can also join me on this Val Maira ski touring trip.

    About the Guide


    I live in Cuneo , a little town in South Alps region 100 km from Turin.

    We have a lot of wild and beautiful mountains around the town, usually a lot of snow for winter, so as a guide I use to stay around my area during winter and spring time for ski touring and ice climbing.

    During the summer as a guide it's better to drive to Chamonix, Cervinia, etc, for climbing the most famous mountains of the Alps.

    I born in 30 .07.1969

    I love mountains in general, ice climbing, ski touring, climbing or just walking in wild walley.

    I speak English and French good level, and I m studying Deutch.
