“Snowshoeing in the Italian Alps!”
Roberto was very helpful in organizing all aspects of the 2 day hike near Torino. He made organizing transportation and equipment very easy. Easily one of the best guides I have had the please to hike with. The hike was full of snow and was an exhausting yet amazing experience! The evening spent in the cabin was also enjoyable! Roberto came prepared with entertainment and food! An unforgettable couple of days. 100% would recommend Roberto to anyone looking to hike in the Italian Alps!
“Wonderful Day Hike from Torino!!”
It was the best day during my last trip to Torino!
I was traveling by myself and didn’t really plan ahead, the sun came out after a few days of rain and I was thinking “Why not go on a hike?” So I jumped in front of the computer and luckily found Roberto’s website. All of the information on the website is well organised and with great testimonial, in English! This is it!
Roberto responded to my email inquiry very efficiently, discussing my expectation, hiking experience and what kind of gear I have. Since I did not bring any gear with me, the next day he came prepared with all the hiking essentials I will need for the day hike!
We hiked on the trails close to Bovile. He picked a trail that is not too challenging for a beginner like me, with stunning views as rewards!!! The entire experience was great and I have been inspired to hike almost every weekend since I came back to the Bay Area!
Thank you Roberto! I still keep in mind your hiking tips ” Don’t stop until the end” every time I am on the trail exploring new places 🙂
Highly recommending Roberto to anyone who is looking for an experienced and fun mountain guide when planning your visit in Torino!
“Amazing week end in Gran Paradiso!!”
Myself and 2 others flew from London to Milan and then got a very quick train journey to Turin (the fast trains are only 1 hour).
When we met Roberto he was so well equipped, he had everything we had forgotten or just better equipment for us to use in his car which came in very handy! When we got to the shelter on Saturday we had some very tasty food and even improvised on some mulled wine! 🙂 We are vegetarians but that really was no problem. For the trek itself, we had AMAZING views. We literally caught the last few days of autumn, so it was very pretty with orange leaves and a bit of snow. We literally couldn’t have asked for better weather.
Whether you are experienced or not, I would definitely recommend going with Roberto. He made sure everyone had a fun time and is chilled out. It’s not often you get to go hiking with a local that knows the area really very. I’m now thinking of going back in Summer for part2.
Oh and I should mention we were lucky enough to see 2 Vultures and some falcons, along with plenty of Ibexes and Chamois 😀
100% recommend hiking with Roberto, you will have a great time!!!!
“Fantastic Amenity Trek”
A must visit if you are in Italy. My friend and I went on this trek during the end of October and must say the colors of autumn were extraordinary. Roberto is an excellent guide who knows his stuff. After half way, the path of our trek became difficult and Roberto gave a motivational speech to not stop until the end ( which was not possible by me and had to take a couple of short breaks in between). When we finally reached the destination the view was breathtaking and we were accompanied by 4 other locals who were on a vacation. The best part was they were as young as 65 years old (2 and a half times my age) which made me look like a 100 year old man. At night Roberto cooked us dinner and we played cards in an old hut on top of the mountains. Overall is was an amazing experience I would definitely go for another trek with Roberto in the near future. Thank you Roberto.
“On Top Of The World!!!”
My husband and I did an EXCELLENT hike with Roberto!!! The difficulty that he chose was just right for us. It was a little bit foggy down at the bottom, but after we started climbing higher than the clouds, the view was AMAZING!!! We always felt safe with Roberto and he spent extra time pointing things out to us or just to check if we were OK/having fun. Even if you are not a professional hiker, ANYONE/EVERYONE should go on a hike with Roberto! He really knows his stuff and we can honestly say it was one of the most amazing experiences of our lives! Like us, he will definitely find the right path for you… 🙂
Thanks again Roberto, see you next time!!!
“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 Mountain Trekking”
I was joining the Lanzo valley hiking trip with Trekking Alps. It was one of the best mountains and peaks I’ve seen so far. The scenary is amazing and during our trek we saw also serveral animals including ibex 😀
Roberto was a super cool guide! He took really good care of us and eventhough I went there alone and join the trek with others, we were having so much fun.
I really recommend it to anyone who want to expereince Italian Alps.
“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”
“An Amazing Experience”
“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 =)
Roberto is THE best out there. I had an amazing time trekking the Alps with him. Although weather didn’t cooperate with us on the first day, Roberto knew how to handle the cards we were dealt and I 100% trusted his judgement and knowledge. If you’re considering this trek, I definitely recommend doing it with Roberto. He knew the best treks and place where mountain hiking. We’ve been in Gran Paradiso National park hiking and it was a terrific trek!
Roberto made this experience one that I will never forget. His knowledge of the different treks as well as climbing is really helpful. He made us feel comfortable by skyping with him and give us more information about the trip. Not only is he a great, guide but it was great talking with someone from the area about Italy in general. The scenery can’t be beat either.
“Experience of a life time!”
Great experience! Roberto (the local guide) planned a perfect one-day hike near Turin. He managed all issues in an excellent manner: target according to my availability, the weather, timing, etc. The views from the peak were astonishing. He transmitted not only his knowledge about landscapes, peaks and mountain ranges, but also his passion about history, flora and fauna. Roberto is an awesome guide! It was definitely an amazing time. I highly recommend everyone to sign up a trek with him!
“Roberto fulfill our expectations way beyond”
We had great time in this hiking tour of the Alps and hopefully we’ll have the chance to come back again. This was a real adventure!
“An amazing experience in the Alps with the most breathtaking views!”
My weekend snowshoeing in the Alps with our guide Roberto exceeded my expectations! I had been studying abroad in Europe for a couple weeks and wanted to plan a weekend where I could explore the outdoors with my friends–this adventure was everything I was looking for and more! I never would have thought that I’d be able to go hike in the Italian Alps being as unprepared as I was (given that I had no proper gear, supplies, etc.). But Roberto provided us with hiking boots, snow shoes, sticks, sleeping bags, etc. and anything that we didn’t have on us to make sure we had all that we needed for an enjoyable experience. He even made a great dinner for us for our night in the cabin! And the hike was absolutely beautiful! Every view was stunning and we were able to make it up to the peak. Roberto even made sure to help document the experience for us, taking pictures of us as we hiked up and down the mountain. I can honestly say that this was one of the greatest and most unique experiences I’ve ever had and will be the most memorable experience of my semester abroad. Roberto was also so enthusiastic, positive, personable, and just fun to talk to that I highly recommend everyone to sign up for a trip with him! Thank you so much Roberto!
“Such a cool and unforgettable experience!”
Snowshoeing and hiking with Roberto as our guide was hands down one of the most amazing adventures I have ever been on. We skyped with him about a week before our trip and he made sure we had everything we needed in addition to helping us plan our trip. My friends and I were looking for a trip to get outside and explore Italy even more and this trip was perfect for that–the mountains were breathtaking and with virtually no other people there, we felt like we saw the best of everything. The snowshoeing itself was so thrilling and challenging, making the experience all the more rewarding and unforgettable. Roberto himself was an awesome and super friendly guide with so many experiences and stories to share–I highly recommend!
“An experience to remember!”
Wow! What an experience. My sister and I contacted Roberto looking for a challenging yet fun and rememberable experience and that is exactly what we got, plus more! Roberto was the perfect guide for this type of activity; fun, adventurous, brilliant and skilled. This was my first time snowshoeing and I felt completely comfortable. He supplied all of the necessary materials for the hike so this made preparation easy and effortless. We hiked for the day and then stayed in a shelter overnight and hiked back the next. The time in the mountains was one I will never forget!
This was an experience of a life time. I will recommended this to everyone! Roberto was the best!
“Breathtaking and thrilling!”
There was no better way to bring in the new year than with a trek through the Italian Alps. Roberto could not have been better. We became fast friends, chatting on the drive up to the mountain and along the way as he encouraged us to reach the top. He loves the mountains deeply and even though this must have been his thousandth trek, he stopped often to admire the beauty and vastness. His love for the hills inspired us to do the same, really taking in their grandeur and appreciating this incredible day. We would highly recommend any trek with Roberto.
I signed for this hike a month before so i had the opportunity to Skype with the great guide Roberto and to ask him all the questions i had and revived all the answers I needed. When meeting Roberto after 1 minute you can tell you meet an expert. He is very experienced and well equipped. He was very patient with me and helped go through the hard moments of the trek. I advise you to work out all your muscles and make sure you are in a good shape. Anyway there is no doubt you will enjoy the amazing view of the mountains and living in nature with Roberto’s advises and help. I was traveling solo but i joined the group that also signed for the same hike. the group was fun and a very good companion. I was there in march so the snow was still deep and the hard part was walking in snow shoes. i will diffidently try it again in summer.
A must have experience!
“A wonderful and unique experience in the Alps!”
While doing my semester abroad in Venice, my roommate from the US really wanted to go to see the Alps and try snowshoeing. So we did some research, found Roberto and contacted him with all the questions that we had. Just a few days later, we skyped with him and he was very open to answer every single question and told us about the area, the hike and everything we needed to pack for an overnight stay in the Alps. On our hiking weekend, he picked us up at the Metro station in Turin and we drove in the middle of nowhere (a little village in Gran Paradiso) to start our hike. The hike was amazing! Such a wonderful experience that I can recommend everyone to do. Roberto provided us with snow shoes, sticks and organized everything we needed for the weekend. The hike was perfect, we saw many animals, Roberto gave us lots of information about the area and shared his stories with us. The night in the hut was great! We were sitting at the fire, enjoyed our dinner (Roberto asked us before the trip what we want to eat) and the atmosphere – we celebrated Robertos birthday. On saturday, we went up to the peak and enjoyed an amazing view. Roberto also took a lot of nice pictures which he provided to us after the trip. I can definitely recommend a tour with Roberto to everyone! He is such a funny and handsome guy who will make the trip suitable for you and as an unforgettable experience. Mille grazie, Roberto! 🙂
“The most thrilling I’ve done all year! (Hiking in Valpalline in Autumn)”
I absolutely loved my hike up the Italian Alps! I can honestly say that it was the most amazing experience I have ever had. I don’t usually hike mountains of this altitude (and my body felt the consequences) but the experience was worth it. I am definitely going to do another hike! Roberto our guide was extremely amicable, interesting, and fun to talk to. He knew so much about the nature around us, which made our long hiking trips less painful and more educational. This is a must try for all aspiring adventures! You can even choose the level of difficulty depending on your skill and fitness. Once again, a huge thanks to Roberto for organizing and leading such a spectacular adventure 🙂
“Alps Trekking from Salbertrand to Pramand Fort”
It was a very pleasant experience hiking through the alps getting deeper and deeper into the mountains. We walked 3 hours in a very nice path, filled with snow, where we got to see falcons, and chamois (goat-antelope) walking through the pine trees, with the most beautiful peaks as a background.
We were a group of 9, and we all enjoyed the hike very much, but also de local liqueurs degustation at the end.
– Very professional guide
– Affordable price
– Totally flexible to suit your group
– 100% recommended
“Great Job Roberto!”
I highly recommend this hiking guide service to anyone who is eager to explore the Italian Alps. My guide, Roberto, who started the business, is very accommodating. I had limited time to do an overnight trek outside of Torino, however Roberto knew exactly where to go and what we should do based on my time limitations and experience level. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the terrain and the region’s ecosystem. It really felt like I was backpacking with an experienced friend rather than a payed guide. Furthermore, the Alps in Italy are stunningly beautiful and this is a great way to intimately experience them. Roberto knows them as well as anyone else, as he grew up in the region and is passionate about these phenomenal mountains. I would definitely do it again on a longer trek if I ever return!
“Absolutely wonderful 3-day Hiking tailored to suit your needs”
I was initially slightly worried about the hike. Friends & family asked if I was crazy to go on a 3-day hike in winter, let alone doing the hike with a complete stranger. After all how prepared would I be – being a girl who has barely done any hikes in asia or trained for the hike at all? I soon realized I had nothing to worry about. Roberto was awesome, and his easy-going personality was a joy to be around. He was very encouraging and he tailored the trip with many day hikes according to my ability and the weather. We were rewarded with a great sunset on the second-evening, as well as great weather on the very last day where we got a stunning view of the peaks within the Gran Paradiso nature reserve. I’d have to say it was money well-spent and I would definitely recommend Roberto to any others who would love to see the Italian alps in this authentic way!
“6 Brasilians, awsome weekend!”
My friends and I are Brazilian students here in Italy and we wanted to try something new, that we never faced before, but we could never guess that the weekend in the Noaschetta hut in the Gran Paradiso was so perfectly what we desired. Since the first call, Roberto demonstrated professionalism, knowledge of the mountain and that he really cared about our enjoyment and well being. He was always mindful about our questions, as travelers from Brazil, we did not have winter clothes, and Roberto suggested us the best jackets and boots to face the mountain, and as it was our first mountain trek, he ‘interview’ us about what we would like to do, to see, how much we would like to walk, etc. (but at the same time, he made it clear that he would follow our rhythm and we would go until where we wanted, or could). When the days for the hike came, everything exceded our expectation, Roberto and Elisabetta (who was our other guide) were very nice, always liked to talk during the walk, and in the evening, after some awesome views of the Italian Alps, they cooked for us an amazing dinner, and we spent a good time warming ourselves with some cheeses, salami and a typical wine. The other day, we followed the trek, and even if we wanted to go forward, Roberto was watchful and careful to bring us back before it got dark. In sum, it was one of the most fantastic experiences of my life, and I can be only grateful and happy to have shared it with Roberto, Elisabetta and my friends.
“2 Days with Trekking Alps”
I really enjoyed my experience with Trekking Alps. Roberto was great at communication before the tour and being flexible to fit us into a tour that would match our availability and skill level. The hike was great, we had a great group and the scenery was amazing. We stayed in a hut which was really comfortable and had the most amazing view. I had never been to Turin or the Alps before and now I would highly recommend. On our hike we went to the peak of the mountain and we’re surrounded by stunning views. Roberto was extremely friendly, supportive and professional during our hike and would highly recommend Trekking Alps and I hope to visit again!
“Wonderful one day experience!”
Our guided hike with Roberto was nothing short of perfect. He took myself and my girlfriend on a day hike into the Italian Alps about an hour and a half north of Torino. We explained to him our hiking experience and what we wanted out of the hike and he modeled the hike specifically for us. It was the perfect amount of difficulty and was one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever been on. The entire trip was absolutely enjoyable. Not only was the hike awesome, Roberto is a great guy and it was a pleasure conversing with him the entire time. He is very intelligent and has a great sense of humor, couldn’t really ask for more. If you are in Torino and are interested in the beauty of the mountains, contacting Roberto is a MUST! He has been hiking this area since he was 6 years old and knows these mountains like the back of his hand.
“Breathtaking scenery great trek and fantastic guide!”
I booked a trek with Roberto for the end of October. I got good advice from Roberto about what to bring and where to meet up in Turin. I would recommend trekking with Trekking Alps, I chose to travel and trek solo but there were 3 others on my trek so also had the pleasure of meeting them and their company. It was a real adventure and it was great to have an experienced and knowledgable guide to show us the way. I enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the rather bracing trek up Valpelline in Valle d’aosta and will go back for another trek.
“Excellent guide with unbeatable enthusiasm”
We hiked with “Trekking Alps” few times, and very highly recommend Roberto as a guide. He has an enthusiastic and energetic exuberance that makes every hike an enjoyable experience. He can tailor each hike to the abilities of those participating, and has an intimate knowledge of the Alps around Torino. He definitely goes that extra distance to ensure a great time in the mountains and we will certainly go with Roberto on more hikes when we return to the Alps!
Trekking Alps was a great choice for our hiking vacation. They offer a wide variety of hikes and treks, different levels of difficulty and flexible number of days. Our guide Roberto was super nice, very professional, and the entire pickup, hike and return were very well organized.
I did two treks with Roberto this October, two consecutive days along with a friend in the Gran National Paradiso and the other, a two day trek with a larger group in park Orsiera. To begin with , Roberto is a wonderful guide, knowledgable, personable and very attentive to the needs of his clients. The scenery and hikes in this region are very beautiful. I would only ask you to be mindful that unguarded huts can be tough if you are into more comfortable travel, especially as they provide no electricity, water or bathrooms. As well, it is important to be part of a group of similar level of skills. Falling behind an experienced group can be intimidating and impose pressures that one does not need on a vacation. Having said so, I wholeheartedly recommend Roberto . You will not only meet a guide and enjoy your trip, but also make a wonderful friend.
“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!
“Bivacco San Camillo”
I was in bivacco San Camillo with Trekking Alps in January 2015, there was a lot of snow,windy day but also a lot of fun after. It was my first trip with Roberto but not the last. I highly recommend to have a wonderful trips/journey with Trekking Alps.
“Discover the beauty of our Italian Alps”
Beautiful hike with a young and competent Hiking Guide: we discovered amazing natural places of Italy that all the world envies us! I could not imagine that we had such beautiful places in Italy. Sometimes it seemed to be in Himalaya, sometimes in Tropical forest.
It was pure joy to live the passion for the mountains. A true wild experience traveling in the Alps with Trekking Alps !!!
Gran Paradiso in winter!
“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.
“An Amazing Experience”
I am not an expert trekker and had difficulties on the way up. However, Roberto allowed me to take my time and gave me great advice. He is truly a fantastic guide! In addition, the trek he took me and my friends on was absolutely amazing. As we were going up, it was very foggy and misty and it was hard to tell what was surrounding us. As we reached our cabin it was still foggy. The weather report said that it should be sunny the following day. And the weather did not disappoint…when I awoke and looked out the cabin window I couldn’t believe my eyes. We were above the cloud line and could only see the peaks of the surrounding mountains. Trekking with Roberto was an amazing experience that I won’t ever forget. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy the remarkable nature of the Alps.
“Great day-hike to nearby Mt. Barrouard”
Roberto accommodated my fiancee and I with an awesome day-hike to nearby Mt. Barrouard. With pick-up and drop-off in Torino, we had very little to do besides bringing our boots and enjoying the experience. The hike was strenuous (about 6 hours of hiking probably) but technically not challenging, and we were lucky to get great views of the valley and nearby mountains for most of it. Roberto was a very pleasant conversationalist and chatting with him actually felt like the most legitimately cultural activity we engaged in during our entire Italy trip. Feel free to bring water and snacks along to fit your needs, as Roberto seemingly has a unique ability to thrive on the spring water and wild berries found in the mountains!
Roberto is simply amazing! Strongly recommended! For anyone who is looking for a wonderful hike! He is a total expert and a professional in every way. Thank you Roberto and hope to hike with you soon.
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!
“One of The Greatest Guide&Tour i Have Ever Had !”
In One Word : Amazing ! I travel a lot and Trekking many times in Africa, Middle East and Europe.
This 2 days was absolutly great. i meet Roberto in the Train Station, he came to pick me out ane from the first moment, throw is Home made coffe in his house, was absolutly great. after an hour we meet the other people of the group and Robert connect from the the first moment between all of us. Another thing is the Generous of him – he give us everything we need : from trekking equipment untill food ! Actually my only mistake was to do it only 2 days and not more than that ! it’s so worth it ! I offer u to do it only with Roberto ! He know Everything about Everything ! from my opinion i know that i will do it 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!
“Roberto is the best trekking guide in the Alps hands down!”
Roberto went crazy for us planning the best trip we could have possibly imagined around inclement weather. The views we got where truly spectacular and it was an absolutely unparalleled experience. When I told Roberto I would be proposing to my girlfriend on the trip his eyes lit up and I could see right then that he was all in. He gave us a feel for Italian culture and we absolutely appreciated it. Despite his modesty Roberto’s English is very very good. By the time we left it felt like we where leaving a good friend not just a trekking guide. Thanks Roberto you’re the best.
“Roberto is the King of the mountains!”
I was not very well prepared for trekking, my shoes were completely wrong, I had no sunscreen, and had no idea what to expect from the Alps. But Roberto was helpful and amazing every step of the way. In 2 days, we did everything we planned and much more getting to the top of Robinet Peak with friends, old and new. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life and being able to have shared it with people as amazing as Roberto and everyone who came with us made it even better. Make sure to listen to all of his instructions and recommendations, they are very important! Regardless, I had the best climbing the mountain and getting to know my tri-lingual Italian guide. I highly recommend this experience to any and all!! We truly reached the heavens.
“The best personal guide I could ask for”
In Brief: Great guide. Great locations. Multiple choices of locations based on your experience. Friendly. Understanding. Affordable. The best experience in Italy! The experience was one to be cherished for the whole life. The hut was at a perfect distance of trek and it was isolated enough for us to get away from the hush and buzz of the city. I would greatly like to thank Roberto and his family for the great experience they provided me and my sister. I look at Italians in a different light after the experience I had with Roberto and his family.
“Wonderful, amazing mountain holidays!”
We discovered the Italian Alps together with Roberto this summer.. When we first contacted Roberto, he listened to our wishes and invented a special hiking tour for us: at the end the difficulty level was right, we saw beautiful fortresses and fascinating monasteries of the Susa Valley. and we did a very beautiful trekking with stunning views of the west Alps!!! During these days we discovered together also some typical dishes from Piedmont ..it was a great experience! Thank you Roby :))) We hope to come back next year!
“Hiking in October with Trekking Alps”
I had 4 days together with Roberto in Alps. Although the best season is over but it is still one of best trek I ever had, beautiful mountains, lakes and wild animals… so a wonderful experiences. Roberto did an excellent job on that trek. He is passionate and knowledgeable about natural and a good companion in the mountains. We shared a lot about our shared passion on natural but also cultures and history … about Italy and China. Overall I recommend him highly.
“Italy’s trip Best experience!”
As soon as I met Roberto, I knew that we were in excellent hands. Throughout our trek Roberto was very safety conscious. He knew the area we were hiking in very well and always made sure that we were comfortable with the route we were taking.
“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!
“Amazing trek to Mt. Robinet”
My trekking guide Roberto was very friendly and down to earth. He is not only an expert guide in trekking and he was made the trek as comfortable as possible. Our friendly conversation also made the trek very pleasant. The trek to the peak of Mt. Robinet is one of the most beautiful treks I have done. With forests in the lower regions, the path along a stream from flows from two clear glacial lakes and some snow on the way to the top make it the best experience with nature one could ask for. The view from the peak is simply breathtaking and I would trek this route again if possible. I recommend this trek for all nature and adventure lovers.
“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!
