Summer Mountain Hiking Reviews
“A Clever inspiring Guided Journey“
Once in a while, you cross paths with people that alter your life, and Roberto is one of these. Besides being an experienced guide with a logical progression of inspiring and challenging hikes, he was a blast, and a perfect match to my husband. The two of them had me laughing often. He is one of Italy’s secrets, and reminds me of another Roberto… Roberto Tomba, an Italian Olympic skier. BUT, when guide Roberto stops, he does so to protect and provide for those he is guiding. When we were crossing a snow bank, my hands started screaming in pain. Immediately, he whipped off his gloves and let me wear them until I could actually move my fingers again. This was an Olympic move, making him my Italian hero. I can’t wait for our next adventure with him.
“Valle d’Aosta Hiking Summer 2016”
I went hiking for 3 days at Valgrisenche with Trekking Alps. A really nice experience.
The landscape is beautiful. Roberto is a really good guide! It’s his passion – so you’re in good hands!! I liked Roberto’s funny and kind way-;)) the people came from different countries which was also a nice experience!! A good choice!!
“Amazing hike of Mont Glacier in Monte Avic Park”
Trip of a lifetime. Roberto led myself and a friend on a 2 day climb up Mont Glacier and it was truly an unforgettable experience packed with sights and views that can’t be done even be done justice by pictures. Roberto was very communicative and flexible in the planning, and in addition to providing great guidance, he was a lot of fun to have on the climb. Highly recommend.
“Fun, Philosophy and the art of hiking”
Me and my husband spent 5 days hiking in Gran Paradiso with Roberto in September and the title pretty much summarizes our trip.
Having done several expedition style long treks worldwide, our respect for short, but challenging short hikes grew tremendously.
The great thing about Roberto being the flexibility and ease with which he can adapt and suggest hikes to suit your state of mind or body. We find one challenging and one scenic hike and enjoyed both.
He also gives you the option of hiking with a few others, which makes it interesting or on your own which is cool too!
Post hike dinners were awesome with topics ranging from world geopolitics to cuisine to existential discussions.
We will certainly come back to hike with Roberto again.
“Always super fun, super rewarding and super memorable!“
We’ve been hiking with Roberto of Trekking Alps several times and each instance has been absolutely excellent. He definitely goes the extra distance to make sure each trip is not only memorable, but customized to the expectations and abilities of his clients. His intimate knowledge of the area coupled with his boundless enthusiasm results in enjoyable and rewarding experiences. We’ll continue to hike with him whenever we’re in Torino going in the Italian Alps!
“Trekking alps is a must do in northern Italy! ”
I had one of the most amazing hikes I have ever done in my life and Roberto took beautiful pictures for me as well! I am so grateful for this company and couldn’t be more satisfied with a trip to the alps. Roberto took care of seriously everything and it couldn’t have been more stress free. Would recommend to anyone and everyone who loves mountains and hiking!!!!!!!
“Punta Rossa – Great Trek!!”
My hike/trek through the Gran Paradiso National Park with Roberto was amazing!
Roberto helps to bring people together who enjoy the wilderness but also have similar treks in mind. I am travelling solo and was joined by 2 couple’s and 3 other solo travellers on our 4 day hike.
For me, even with the various fitness levels of the group there was still a challenge, for example one of my highlights, waking up before sunrise at the Sogno di Berdzè Rifugio. 3 of our party was interested and did this as an extra challenge. Also the final Punta Rossa peak where we saw Mt Blanc & The Matterhorn was a challenge that 4 out of the 8 completed. At this point I believe the others were happy with their sleepin!
Roberto has a great knowledge of the area, introducing us to foods from the Alps which you’ll never taste elsewhere and was extremely valuable as an introduction to how to negotiate the Italian Alps.
For myself as a child I’ve climbed mountains in NZ but to join a small group like this and get away from the extremely touristic areas was great. Roberto explained well how the local Rifugio and Bivacco cabins work and has offered to help me plan a trip for myself in the future.
All in all, this was an amazing experience. I’ve made friends from around the world and stood on a challenging mountain top without the crowds of other spots.
I thank you for your time and knowledge Roberto.
Best wishes for the future, and I’ll see you on the mountains again.
I really enjoyed Trekking Alps, I met a Fantastic people in my group and of course the landscapes were wonderful. Roberto is a Excelent Instructor and he knows perfectly Aosta Valley. I recomend Trekking Alps 100% !
“Valgrisenche Hike Tour: Highly reccomended”
thanks a lot Trekking Alps!!
“Fantastic Experience in the Italian Alps!”
Roberto guided my wife and me for four fantastic days in June. We had some unusual requests and he was able to accomodate them perfectly. His knowledge of the area, his pleasant personality, kindness and sense of humor made the time memorable beyond words. His choice of routes was amazing and he went out of his way to share the local history and culture with us. He gave us several choices for accomodations and then met our requests in a way that exceeded our expectations. He even took us to a local sporting goods shop (Ferrino Store in Torino) so my wife could be fitted for the first pair of hiking boots (branded AKU) that actually fit her. She would wear them to bed if she could. He also turned out to be a huge NBA fan and we had several long discussions about basketball as we labored up the more strenous terrain. I would recommend Roberto to experts and beginners alike as he will undoubetdly deliver a great trip.
My wife and I went to Italy for our honeymoon and wanted to spend 2 days in the Alps. Roberto was fantastic. For our honeymoon, we could not have asked for a better experience! His knowledge of the local mountains and their climates proved to be excellent as he guided us away from an oncoming storm, took us to a secluded and breath taking vista, and we had a close encounter with Ibex! All the while, he was a joy to talk to and made every person in the group feel welcome. I haven’t gone with other guides, but I won’t ever have to look for another the next time we go to Italy. Our choice will be simple, we’ll go with Trekking Alps!
“An amazing family hike with two children”
My family and I spent 3 days hiking with Trekking Alps and Roberto in July 2016. Based on our preferences and feedback Roberto planned an amazing trip for us which was the highlight of our time in Italy. He was wonderful with our two children, ages 8 and 9 years old. I highly recommend Trekking Alps and would book again without hesitation.
“Amazing and challenging first hike”
“Outstanding hike, very well organized”
Trekking Alps helped us organise and lead a work sponsored hike for a large 30+ group of varying abilities from beginner to advanced and was fantastic. Roberto’s knowledge of the area and ideas for setting the hike at the right challenge was perfect, and he had a really great attitude to guiding us, with infinite patience for those who wanted to take their time, as well as those wanting more of a challenge. No small task!
Even in stormy weather we all had a brilliant experience walking in the Italian Alps and the trip will be great memory for us to have and talk about for a long time. Thank you!
“July 2016 fantastic hike”
“Hikes in Monte Rosa and Gran Paradiso“
Roberto was a thoughtful, organized, and kind guide, and arranged a great trip for our small group of family and friends. The weather and scenery were fantastic, and the refugios (mountain B and Bs, in effect) in the Monte Rosa area were truly excellent. Highly recommended! Many thanks to Roberto for a great time.
Had wonderful experience with Roberto. Even though it was my first hike, Roberto made everything possible for me. He was very organised, warm and kind and always make sure that we had everything we need. I would definitely100% recommend Roberto and would love to join another hike with him again one day. Thank you, Roberto =)
“Experience of a life time!”
“Memorable moments in the Alps”
My husband and I had the Monviso tour in Alp, guided by Roberto last August. For me it was really challenging since it was my first hiking.
But by Roberto’s patience and experience I was able to embrace the pain and difficulties. It was a great experience and we have plan to join Roberto for more tours in the future.
During the trekking trip you might struggle with so much pain in your body, but my advise is don’t get distracted by it so much and pay more attention to your surrounding and the beauty of the Alps than to your pain. Because in the end what you will remember is just the amazing sceneries and the team company!
“Wonderful Monviso and Gran Paradiso!!”
Great experience in wonderful places. Fantastic company! Roberto is an expert and very capable guide and he was able to pass down to us the love for those marvellous mountains. Special thanks to Elisabetta, precious on Gran Paradiso! I think it is a very good trekking to start to get acquainted with hikes in the Alps and to experience real mountain environment.
“Good times with Roberto”
We did the Tour of Bessanese this summer! The days were long and intense, but we had such a good time! Roberto is patient and passionate and he knows where he’s going. Thanks for amazing memories and we would not hesitate to do another trek with Roberto! Elizabeth & Steven
“Great trekking in the alps”
I have done 3 guided hikes with Roberto over the last few months. We went to Rocciamelone, Gran Paradiso and Monteviso in the Italian Alps. Roberto was a fantastic guide. Helpful, knowledgeable and above all fun. Whatever your ability or fitness he will design or suggest the hike best for you. I cannot recommend him enough. They were fantastic days in the mountains.
The two day hike of Rocciamelone was one of the most spectacular experiences I’ve ever had. I heard about Trekking Alps and Roberto from a friend who had gone on a hike with him and decided that this might be a good way to escape the heat of summer and satisfy my longing for great alpine scenery. The hike was relatively short but intense, and I loved every minute of it. We stayed at a lodge on the peak of the mountain and watched the sunset and sunrise at 3500m. The views were unbelievably breathtaking! Roberto is not only a fantastic and accommodating guide but also an awesome guy to hike with. I would definitely recommend him if you are looking for an unforgettable adventure!! I only wish I could go again!
“Wonderful hiking experience”
A dream come true. The 4 day hiking/trekking trip in Gran Paradiso national park hiking included a lot of nature nature, huts and “refugios” to sleep in, surrounded by rocks and snowy mountains, sunsets and sunrises, hiking, beautiful scenery and great company.
Roberto, the tour guide is very nice knowledgable and funny, and made sure everyone had a great time. I had never been on an organised hiking tour and had little hiking experience. As the only solo traveller in the group, I felt warmly welcomed as if I was part of a family during the trip. This trip exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended if you like mountains, hiking, Italians, Italian food, the Alps and great company. I wouldn’t think twice to go again!
“Superb guided hiking in the Italian alps”
I had a really fantastic experience hiking with my husband and 15 year old daughter. We went on two tours, one for 4 days in Grand Paradiso and the second trip was for 3 days in Monviso. We encountered beautiful and sometimes dramatic mountain scenery along the way, went swimming in a mountain lake and enjoyed really great company in our small group of people. Roberto provided expert guidance, he loves the mountains and knows this region like his back pocket, it was wonderful to meet him.
“Breathtaking and tough trek. 100% recommend”
Roberto is a professional. He had a number of routes planned out that we could take, and left it up to us to decide where we wanted to go, what we wanted to see, and what experience we wanted. He was able to cater to any taste.
We spent 4 days hiking and slept 3 nights in unguarded huts (Bivacs). The days were long and parts were tough but it was still one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. The views, the mountain water, the air, everything. It was the best type of holiday to forget your busy life and enjoy the moment.
I can’t recommend Roberto enough. He knows the area so well and it’s true when he says it’s “paradise”.
“Alpine Lake escape”
Roberto is without a doubt the best guide you can ask for. My friend and I took a short trip from Milan to Torino where Roberto met us and began our weekend hike. In the short time that we had, we hiked through some seriously gorgeous valleys, crossed through several streams, and thoroughly enjoyed seeing the most clear blue-green lakes. After reaching camp, Roberto made a simple but tasty meal of tortellini, perfect for taking the chill off. Got a bit of down time, which you can use to relax or explore a bit more. Next day, we went up a bit higher, as the summit is about 2 hours’ hike away. Would highly recommend going upwards, as the views are increasingly (and quite literally) breathtaking from there. Going back down, we came across the third lake, where we stopped for a little to enjoy the extremely cold waters. The hike back was just as beautiful as the hike up, but the most difficult part was leaving. Highlights: staying in a bivouac under the snow (bring warm clothes and socks!), morning hikes, going for a (very quick) swim in one of the mountain lakes. My singular regret: not being able to stay longer. Hope to be back in the future and hike some more!
“Great hike, great guide!”
Roberto is fun, warm and he adapts quite quickly to the needs of his clients. We went on a five days trek with this guy here and he took us to gorgeous places and had the best time ever. I would definitely go with him again :).
“Excellent guide and excellent mountains”
Roberto did an excellent job leading a five day trek and accommodating four people from three different countries with a wide range of ages. He was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and passionate about the mountains. A great trip leader and companion. I recommend him highly!
“Roberto is the best guide ever…”
I spend 3 days unforgettable days with Roberto in the Italian Alps challenging Punta Rossa de la Grivola. A super, super, super experience with Trekking Alps.
Roberto is very knowledgeable and experienced guide who is always in positive and good spirit. Trust me,…this is important. Especially when you are descending the steep mountains.
Roberto made me a customized trekking tours and had made all prior arrangement. All I needed to bring was my good spirit and the need for a good adventure. I definitely recommend Roberto as a guide!
