Trekking Alps - Responsible Tourism in the Alps
A group of Passionate and Professional Local Guides at your service all year round!
Trekking Alps is a style of life. We are not an Association neither a Tour Operator. We are a group of individuals dreamers and official Guides of north Italy, working mainly in Piedmont and Aosta Valley. We operate individually and everyone has her/his unique style and she/he is responsible in the guided hike from the begin to the end. But all of us we share the same passion for Nature in general and for our beautiful Alps in particular.
Why To choose us? there will be no formality and fun-oriented: our main goal is to make your holidays just unforgettable. And believe us it will be. First of all thanks to the wonderful natural beauty that we are lucky to have nearby. Second of all the cultural aspects: We are very careful to organize responsible tourism with small groups and trying to help the local mountain communities to survive. Lately there is a strong economic depression in the less famous mountain area. And these area are the one the we prefer!
In case it is required we do cooperate with Giorgio, the leader of Verticalife, a very efficient and nice Tour Operator specialized in Outdoor set in Torino.
Trekking Alps guides seek for beauty. This is our job and we are very committed to do it in the best possible way always organizing responsible tours. Trying to organize the most suitable hike for every single client. Most of our hikes are led by Naturalistic Hiking Guides but eventually, in case it is required more experience in high mountain environment you’ll have your super expert Mountain Guide(Guida Alpina in Italian), Michele Amadio.
We want to know about every single person before he/she come so that we can try to offer the specific Mountain Hiking Tour that we think will be the most suitable. That is why you can’t book directly online.

Trekking Alps Founder – Hiking Guide
I am Roberto Calcagno, I was born in 1985 and I am an Hiking Guide from 2010, funded Trekking Alps website in 2012. I am a Telecommunications Engineer and I could definitively switch my carrer to Hiking guide in 2015. It was the best day of my life as I found also Love in that day: 9th of April will be always my personal National Holiday! I travelled the World and I love cultural differences. I love my job which is a mix of Nature, Beauty and shared experience: my passions all togheter.
Hi! I am Elisabetta, naturalist and plant biologist. I usually work with kids as an environmental educator and I work everyday knowing that a single experience should change the way to live and to relate with nature of my small and bigger customers. I don’t mean mountain as a sport, I have never had the aim of reaching every peak, but if you want to explore, you need to walk and the Alps near Turin are an excellent land for exploration and contemplation of Nature!
I have been exploring the alps since I was a child and I have always felt the need to hike around, especially looking for trails off the beaten track. As a geographer I am always interested in learning about our planet, trying to be open minded, and sharing experiences. This has brought me to travel in many places around the world always coming back with renewed energy, new friends and some nice stories to tell in front of a good dinner and some red wine.
I was born in Turin, at the foot of the Alps and since I was a little child I always felt attracted by mountains. My aim is to let people fall in love with Nature and let them understand how important is to protect the Wilderness not only for future generations, but also for the Planet itself. I’m an outdoor enthusiast, hiking guide, dirtbag climber, mountaineering instructor and rope access technician.
I have been obsessed by mountains already for so many years. Even in my vacation I always end up climbing somewhere. The passion for the mountain is taking me all the energy but I can’t stop living this way. Spending all my time up there, between the clouds I found a peace that is hard to experience anywhere else. I wanted to share and live this passion with as many persons as possible and that brought me to become a Mountain Guide.
As a biologist I have always wanted to learn more about the aspects of alpine habitats, but I’m also interested in the traditions, tales and communities who lived in our valleys in the past. As an hiking guide, I work both with children and adults. I deeply believe that to educate about nature and mountain is a fundamental tool to preserve the precious Alps heritage.
