3 Days in Heaven!!
I did a 5D/4N hike with Roberto and Enrico in the Italian Alps region, and they were absolutely phenomenal. From the onset, they were very detailed and attentive to all your requirements (including your fitness etc), and will tailor-make an itinerary that’s best suited for you. Both guides were exceptionally cool people, and very easy-going. The best part is that they will bring you on off-beaten/little-known trails which are not overcrowded, and you still get to enjoy stupendous views of the Alps region. Forget about the popular and touristic Mont Blanc or Dolomites, go for the lesser known hikes these guys organize! You will not regret, highly recommended!

Great guide makes all the difference
My family of 4 spent two days in May 2022 with Enrico hiking in Valle d'Aosta with an overnight stay at a hut (Bivacco Borroz) and on the second day a visit to (lake) Lago Lavodilec. The unguarded hut may be more than we asked for 🙂 but memories are made out of surprises and deep impressions. Beautiful off season hike made memorable by the very experienced Enrico. We enjoyed the conversations on multiple topics that only knowledgeable and experienced guides can handle. More importantly, we feel safe. Looking forward to another opportunity to engage them again for a bespoke hike in less known but beautiful valleys in Italy! The secon part of the Trip with Roberto in Lanzo Valleys was also memorable. Great location and beautiful nature!

Fantastic experience with Trekking Alps
I spent one week hiking with Trekking Alps: a four day trip with Roberto, then a day hike and one overnight with Enrico. We had to break up the week because some refugios weren't open due to snow. Each trip was different with different people, but each day was consistently spectacular!! They decide which routes to do at the last minute, depending upon conditions, and took us to absolutely gorgeous valleys, mountains, lakes, waterfalls...places I never could have found on my own. Enrico shared a lot of knowledge about the area geology, flora, fauna and the Italian Alps are absolutely as beautiful as they say. Highly recommend hiking with them.

Incredible day in the Snow
Incredible experience, hiking the Alps with cool Roberto, going up the Punta dell’Aquila, and ending the day with some wine glue. Definitively would recommend and repeat the plan 🤙🏻
Facundo - Argentina Testimonials 4
Best Day in Italy!
Roberto was the most wonderful guide! He was so friendly and had lots of interesting things to tell us - such a pleasure to be with! It was an incredible experience in the Alps, we will cherish it forever! We had the best day in the mountains with Roberto! The autumn foliage was breathtaking, loved every moment!
Hestia and Isabella - South Africa Testimonials 5
See you next year!!
We did 6 days of hiking with Roberto. He knew the area having been grown up in the same valleys. He was flexible to our schedule and our abilities. We had a phenomenal time and plan to organize another trek next year!
Raj - India Testimonials 6
Wild and Memorable!
My friends and I (a group of 6) recently got back from a trip of 4 days and 5 nights with Roberto. He really was the perfect guide. He was super communicative from the first WhatsApp message - he helped us figure out what kit we would need, planned a Zoom call in advance to get to know each other and planned a route for us based on our abilities and the weather - and was just a superstar the whole way through! He made the whole trip seamless - picking us up outside the metro stop, dropping us off, and just generally holding our hands the whole way through. From a personal perspective it was wonderful to spend the time with Roberto who was great fun, really fit in well with our group and it felt like hiking with a friend. In terms of the landscape and the hike, it was phenomenal! We didn’t bump into another soul on the trail - only sometimes seeing somebody else at the refuges (and nobody at the unguarded huts). The landscape is pretty spectacular and a fantastic alternative to the drive-up/cable car crowd you might find in the Dolomites - the area really is untouched and unspoilt. I can’t recommend Roberto highly enough!

4 days trekking in Valtournenche
A wonderful experience trekking for four days the picks south of Monte Cervino (Matterhorn). The scenery was trully breathtaking. Roberto is a fantastic mountain guide, trully in love with what he does. An easy going person who's extremely pleasant to be with. We would strongly recommend having a guide like him, since that takes off all the burden of organising a trekking in an unfamiliar terrain.
Harris - Grece Testimonials 8
Perfect for the first time in the Alps
Don't book your hike with Enrico!!! That is if you don't want to experience the best hike in the Alps ever... 😉 Cause that's what it was for us hiking with him in Aosta Valley even though it was only 1.5 days... Enrico turned out to be not only professional and experienced guide that made us feel safe and chose the most beautiful and our level fitted trails but also just a super fun, chilled and wise person, a perfect companion to spend time with in the mountains:) waking up to a view with almost all highest peaks of italian, french and swiss Alps was just something else... thank you for that:) Cheers

Came from Alaska, and we were Impressed!
We came to Italy to hike with both Enrico and Roberto. The trip surpassed our expectations. We did 5 days of hiking, 2 with Roberto and 3 with Enrico. Scenery was amazing, food, beer and wine were fantastic. Acommodations were unique, fun and diverse. We had a blast. Both of these guys are fun to be around, good conversationalists, and finding a way to make a living doing what they love. They made all the arrangements, tailored the trip to the conditions, picked routes we Alaskan's would love. I realize we were early in the season (April) but I was amazed they found places where we saw very few (zero on some days) other people while hiking. They offer great value for what they charge. I highly recommend Trekking Alps!

Snowshoeing in Coazze with Trekking Alps
Another breath taking experience with Trekking Alps. The weather was very variable, but somehow Roberto as always managed to fulfil our weekend with an awesome snowshoeing adventure. The rifugio was exceptional with all amenities...a much needed stove, a comfortable bathroom and plenty of room for sleeping. Roberto is a real gentleman, with a lot of sense humour and the best guide one can have. Not to mention the lovely supper prepared by himself. I recommend over and over again and shall definitely return without hesitation. Thanks again ..until the next one 😉

June hiking in the alps
We had a wonderful time hiking with Roberto in June 2019. We did theee days in the Alps and then a day hike. Highly highly recommend. The hiking was great (saw very few people, incredible views). Roberto was knowledgeable, kind, thoughtful and funny. We enjoyed our time with him. We had another gentlemen join us and worked great. Stayed in lodges and a mountain house with our own room. My only regret was packing too much! Would go back in a heartbeat.
Stacey - USA Testimonials 3
Amazing Experience!
Went with my family just after Christmas. It was a wonderful experience, Roberto was a great guide! The trek offered wonderful views of the alps. The lodge we stayed at was very comfortable and run by wonderful staff. I could not have asked for a better way to end my vacation in Italy.

Trekking Alps – Awsome experience!!
I went with my brother in Christmas and we had a wonderful experience trekking the Alps. Enrico was the best guide that we could have had! He was always with good vibes and positive energy, making us feel secure. Always helping us with tips to enjoy to the fullest our experience in the Alps. Ciaspolata is a totally awesome and different activity!!! The mountain lodge was very clean and stylish, and the cuisine has excellent quality. Views are spectacular, I totally recommend it.
Rafael - Uruguay Testimonials 15
Great hike with incredible guide!
The hike was that much better than expected. We had freedom is choosing where and when to hike, allowing us to scale difficulty as we pleased. No matter how hard we made it for ourselves, the guide was levels above our league, making the experience seamless and pleasant! Definitely recommended to anyone who wishes to explore the Italian Alps on their own terms!

2 days in Aosta Valley
I took a winter hike in the alps and did not feel comfortable to arrange a trip by myself in these conditions. Enrico is a very knowledgeable, experienced and fun companion. He helped me understand and arrange the needed gear, arranged the hut, and taught me all about the surroundings and hiking in winter+snow condition. It was a fantastic experience, highly recommended.
Avi – Israel Testimonials 17
Trekking Alps = Great Experience
I spent 2 days trekking with Roberto in the Aosta Valley. The hiking was fantastic, complete with epic vistas, wildlife sightings, and a convivial night in an unguarded hut.This man understands how to make a trip run smoothly. He adeptly handled all of the details and set up what turned out to be a splendid adventure. His English is very fluent, he promptly responds to emails, and he is very flexible and accommodating to meet your needs. He is extremely personable and can talk intelligently on many subjects, which makes him an ideal trekking companion. He also managed to find others to join our trek, which reduced the cost, added to the camaraderie, and made the trip a truly international experience. Following our 2 day trek, he found me a perfect little B&B in his village, from which I could spend another 2 days hiking the local mountains, and he even borrowed me a map and gave me a ride to the train station afterwards. All-in-all, a first class experience. I highly recommend this service and would definitely do it again.
Scott - USA Testimonials 3
Snowshoeing in the Italian Alps
Snowshoeing in the Italian Alps requires a guide with a thorough knowledge of the terrain and snow conditions, and for my trip Roberto was an excellent guide. I stayed at the lodge and we made day hikes from the lodge typically a morning ascent followed by an afternoon descent. On my final day Julia took me up the road from the lodge where we saw many chamois. I whole-heartedly recommend these guys
James - USA Testimonials 3
Amazing Trip, Fantastic Guide
Roberto is freaking amazing!!! We were a little hesitant booking based on how little information there was on the website, but he had fantastic reviews and decided to take a chance. We are so glad that we did. It was definitely the highlight of our trip. The hike that he took us on was spectacular yet not too technical to accommodate one of our hesitant friends. Roberto went above and beyond and even helped us figure out what trains to take in order to get to the meeting point on time. EVERYONE BOOK A TRIP!!
Nikki - USA Testimonials 3
3 Days in Heaven!!
Roberto was an excellent guide who was easily contactable, knew the area well and helped us to select a day hike suitable for our capabilities. He also provided us with hiking boots and trekking poles and helped us in areas where we struggled. It was a perfect day for a hike and I wish I've booked a longer tour! Do not visit Turin without visiting the Alps! 🙂

From Milan an amazing trip in the Alps!
I spent a day with trekking alps organized by Roberto who proved to be highly competent and professional putting at ease the members of the group accompanied with some notes of joy. I suggest to all lovers of trekking and nature to spend a weekend with Roberto and trekking alps.Roberto organized a wonderful 2 days hike in Mont Blanc for our yearly adventure with my collegues. We came from Milan in the morning of Saturday, coming back Sunday night and the trip was perfect: pretty challenging and incredibly beautiful! We got very lucky with the weather and everything worked just fine!

Great Family Hiking Trip!
We had a fantastic experience with Roberto and our hike in the Italian Alps--it was the highlight of our Italian holiday! Roberto was an absolute pleasure, and he was incredibly knowledgable, fun and patient from the moment we started planning the trip until the very last moment. We highly recommend Roberto and Trekking Alps to anyone looking for an incredible adventure.
Silvia - USA Testimonials 3
Only four days in the Aosta valley
We had a personalized hiking trip planned by Roberto around the Aosta valley. It was perfect for us since we only had four days but wanted to see all of it. He managed to fit a trial first day up&down challenge, where we tested our legs, a stuffing polenta dinner in an authentic reastaurant, a beautiful B&B room in a mountain village to rest and take a shower, a two-day hike to a rifugio and back through a hale storm and a lake swim, a meeting with cows up in highlands and a scenic drive on a steep mountain road. We'll never forget snacking on a fulfilling focaccia while drinking a refreshing can of beer by the river between the hikes, playing cards before bed in rifugio, eating pasta before eating the main course and stopping by the store for some food and wine souvenirs on our last day. Seriously though, Roberto is the guy who will plan your trip around your wishes, pick you up in the city, show you around, share fun tips on the italian language and culture and drive you back with a baggage full of cool memories and a camera full of great pictures.

Paul - USA Testimonials 3
Roberto was brilliant. He was great company in the car from the very start and all the way through the trip. He provided kit where necessary and had many interesting facts about the mountains, regarding both the nature and the wider history of the region and its society. He took us on a spectacular route and was always diligent in respect of safety and our enjoyment. Food and camping in the evening were wonderful, surpassed only by the swim in the picturesque glacial lake the in the early morning. He generously drove us back to the airport at the end of our trip. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Our Italy trip highlight!
Hiking in the Alps was so so good, and so beautiful and so perfect and so rewarding - thank you Roberto for planning it for us, and being the best guide we could have imagined. You made our whole Italy trip fantastic and the 6 days hiking is our trip highlight! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for such a fantastic glimpse into 'your' mountains. We feel so privileged to have been able to have you show us around.
Caroline - Australia Testimonials 27
Long weekend hiking from London
I had to organise a long weekend in the mountains for a group of 4 friends. I found Roberto online, and he made the whole thing incredibly easy - we had to meet him in turin with our hiking kit (which he described for us in a list), and he took care of everything else. We had a really great hike - an ascent on the first day to our mountain hut, an an explore on the second day including a dip in a snow-covered lake. Roberto is very pleasant company, and kept everything challenging but within our abilities. We saw marmots, eagles and ibex fighting! A great trip. I would recommend Roberto to anyone

AMAZING weekend away with Roberto and Elisabetta
The first time I went hiking with Roberto 2 years ago I was so impressed, I knew I would be back again. So here I am! This time I shared a long weekend with 9 friends, Roberto and Elisabetta. They are now my special people I can call family ! Roberto went to extreme lengths to make our trip incredibly fun and showed us a side of Italy only locals would know about. I cannot thank him enough for the time he invested to think about all the small details. We were mostly vegetarians and once again the food was fantastic. For Roberto, Trekking Alps is not just a job, he is truly passionate about the mountains which subsequently means he knows the BEST spots to go hiking. He is an excellent mountain guide, and together him and Elisabetta make a great team. I am already thinking about trip number 3! Definitely a trip to remember with endless amounts of laughter!!! Grazie mille per il miglior viaggio 🙂
Sita – United Kingdom Testimonials 7
Me and my friend went with Trekking Alps Guide Enrico Randazzo on a 3 day hike, it was an off season tour and for us who dont like ”crowds” it couldnt been better.  It’s offcourse many small things that make an experience great and it would be a to long rewiev to put all of them in here. The essentiels: Enrico was a super nice guy who just in a few moments found his way with us. That made it also easy for us to feel comfortable. The hike was challeging but the experience, the scenery and all that made the efforts easy. But most of all it was Enrico who added his nice personality, his knowledge and skills to the mix that made it a super trip. So to do some sort of summary; when u ewen have’nt finished the hike Your on and already planning the next it has been a great trip. Just do it 🙂

Fantastic three days with Roberto
My brother and I had a fantastic three days hiking with Roberto. We stayed at the lovely Gran Paradiso B&B in Jovencan and went hiking each day in the beautiful Valle d'Aosta. We managed to pack in a lot, sight seeing, views of the mountains and close encounters with the wild life. Roberto has enormous experience as a guide and boundless enthusiasm for nature. (He was also very helpful when it came to changing hotels in Turin at the last minute! We can't thank him enough for this.) Brilliant trip. Will definitely be going back.
John - Ireland Testimonials 31
Highlight of our trip! Can’t wait to come back to the Alps
We LOVED the two days spent with Roberto! He took us to the most beautiful hiking locations and was very flexible and knew the area well, so when it started raining and being overcast he still knew the best places to take us. Such a wonderful experience.

Great hike with a great guide
We had such a great time hiking in the Aosta Valley with Roberto! The weather and season were ideal, and the hike was perfect for us - challenging enough to feel like a victory but not too difficult or exhausting. Roberto was very knowledgeable and was a lot of fun to hike with. It was especially helpful that he drove us out to the mountains from Torino. I would highly recommend to anyone to book Roberto to explore the Alps!
Laura - USA Testimonials 3
Great Hiking in The Alps!!!
Irina (gf) and I hiked with the fantastic guide Enrico for a few days! I think just about anyone would enjoy Enrico. He is a really good hiker, and knows the areas well. He lets you set the pace of the adventure while making suggestions, and he also has lots of interesting things to talk about on a variety of subjects, including local information. I wouldn't say it was a "must-see" experience, but the hiking, cheese, wine, hut, and overall alps experience was very awesome. I enjoyed this much more than for just the visuals. Mt Blanc is probably the superior visual, which can be looked up on google images, but this was the superior experience. The food was absolutely amazing. Hiking was amazing. Paragliding was amazing. ALPS = AMAZING. ENRICO = SUPER AMAZING Word to the wise, the hiking was unlike any American hiking I've ever done. I do most of my hiking in tennis shoes or flip flops, even if it's a big 10 mile approach to a rock climbing destination. You can't get away with that on these types of trails. It's just a different type of hiking - more technical for sure. Proper grip shoes and hiking poles strongly recommended. I'm glad I heeded Enrico's advice and brought proper hiking shoes.
Max and Irina - USA Testimonials 3
Sensational wildlife spotting
I did a 2 day hike with Enrico, to the Lanza valley. Enrico has excellent English, a great amount of knowledge of the area, and some cool stories to tell as you hike along. He took us to an unguarded hut in a remote location, which was very special! We saw chamois, ibex and even deer running down the cliffs - an awe inspiring sight! I booked late and Enrico went out of his way to fit me in to another group, of similar ability. His pickup instructions were very clear, all communication was very clear. Overall one of my best guided hiking experiences!
Bernardette - Australia Testimonials 27
Great short break in the Alps
We were very lucky to find Roberto to take us round Gran Paradiso National Park. We were training for Kilimanjaro and although the altitude was limited by snow cover, the steep hiking was great practice which we just can't get in the UK. Roberto was really friendly and knowledgeable and gave us the opportunity to try some great local cheeses whilst staying in surprisingly sophisticated and comfortable huts. We would definitely travel with Roberto again and are looking forward to exploring more of the Italian Alps.
Elaine – United Kingdom Testimonials 7
Wonderful trip to Fenis Aosta Valley!
It was a wonderful two days hiking in Aosta Valley, don't need to mention the beautiful snow mountains. Enrico is a great guide, he prepared everything we need for the trip. The facility in the mountain hut was luxury! There is light, gas, and even heat! I will come back to Alps again!
Tao Liu - USA Testimonials 3
Excellent one-day trek with Enrico!
Extremely happy with my Trekking Alps experience!!! Booked one-day trek with Enrico and initial communication before I arrived in Italy was excellent. Enrico did a great job of understanding my athletic ability, explaining the equipment needed and coordinating a pick up point. On the day, he picked me and another couple up from our hotels in Turin and we drove an hour north of Turin to a small village called Viu. There we bought food for our break- Enrico translated for us in the butcher shop and we got some lovely venison sausage and cheeses made in the village as well as bread. Then we drove about another 15 minutes up the mountain and started off on the hike. At first the walk was easy on a gravel path but after about one mile, the fun kicked in and we started up the steep gradient. Enrico did a very impressive job of guiding us as well as explaining the geography, local flora and fauna and thoroughly answering every question we had. The scenery was breathtaking throughout: waterfalls, valleys, views of adjacent ranges and lakes. Although the hike was extremely challenging (and I consider myself to be pretty fit), it was exhilarating and a once in a lifetime experience. Worth every penny. Enrico's knowledge of the terrain combined with his contagious passion for nature and easy going manner made the trip that much more enjoyable. After our descent and ride back to Viu, Enrico introduced me to a local Piedmonte liquor called Genepy Granger as I'd asked him for a recommendation for a good grappa. It was super strong and very good! All in all, a very enjoyable day. If you're thinking of booking a hike in the Piedmonte region, I would not hesitate to recommend Trekking-Alps. They did a fantastic job! Thanks Enrico.

Beautiful views, Off-trail adventuring, and Irreplaceable Memories
We did the 3-day, 2-night hike with Enrico (Day 1 and 2), and Giulia (Day 3). We stayed in a mountain hut the first night and more of a bnb the second night. Enrico was very knowledgeable about the region, the wildlife, the trails, and the weather patterns. That alone made the trek very interesting. Every time we took a break, he pointed out the nearby wildlife and explained the livelihood of people living in/near the Alps. If I recall, the level of our hike was "moderate" and I would say it is good for people with some hiking experience and are okay with some strenuous incline. I will note that we DID go off-trail for a bit (on-purpose) which made for a more adventurous (and strenuous) hike, and it was super enjoyable! The guides will cater the trek around your comfort level and will only push if you're up for the challenge. The mountain hut was cozy and it was nice to not have to set up your own shelter. I think we would have appreciated it even more if we were hiking in the winter and were getting out of the cold. The bnb was wonderful and the food was amazing. I would definitely recommend a taste of both mountain huts and bnbs if you can swing it. I'd recommend any sort of multi-day trek for anyone remotely interested in trekking the Alps in some way. There's a trek for all ages and fitness levels.

Only in National Gegraphic
A memorable 3-day, 2-night trek through a wilderness experience with Roberto in Gran Paradiso. It was quite an adventure seeing the majestic mountains towering into the sky, the gushing waterfalls, the fleeting glimpse of the Chamois and the Ibex clambering on near vertical walls. What made it even better is sharing all this with fellow hikers.
Wing - Hong Kong Testimonials 43
Fabulous 3-day trek in the Aosta Valley
We did a three-day, two-night trek with Roberto in early June in the Aosta Valley, and we were extremely pleased with our experience from beginning to end. After our first email inquiry, Roberto suggested a Skype call to get to know us a bit so that he could plan a trip that would best suit our interests and abilities -- and he did just that! The scenery was spectacular, and while we saw virtually no other hikers on our trip, we did see lots of ibex. We stayed in two unguarded huts and had them all to ourselves. Roberto made us delicious Italian dinners each night. Roberto was patient and encouraging on the hike (I am not the fastest hiker!) and made the whole experience easy and enjoyable for us! We highly recommend Trekking Alps.
Mimi - USA Testimonials 44
Simply amazing
Our mountain hikes with Trekking Alps were nothing short of extraordinary. We found Roberto to be an excellent guide and also a great conversationist. It was an incredibly authentic experience, always stopping for a local panino and coffee before setting off. For our two day-hikes, Roberto made a point of choosing the best possible destinations for the time of year. We cannot wait to book another adventure with Trekking Alps!
Elisa - Canada Testimonials 34
Gran Paradiso – 2 nights/3 days
My first experience of trekking and it was great. Roberto was extremely helpful to begin with, responding to questions etc very quickly and clearly. He also built something that worked for us. The trek itself was amazing and Elisabetta was a great guide, friendly and knowledgeable, with the right amount of walking each day. The surroundings were beautiful and lots to explore. Would definitely recommend!

Roberto is the best guide you could hope to find
First, he knows the mountains. He grew up here and knows all the peaks and valleys intimately. He understands when weather and other conditions make it necessary to find alternate routes. Second, he knows people. He gets to know each member of his group, their strengths and capabiltiites, and fine-tunes the treks to accomodate everyone. Third, he understands how to tack on an extra hike or exploration for those who need to push themselves a little harder, uncovering unexpected delights in the Alps. Fourth, he is a great cook, and is able to make cost-effective yet extremely tasty meals after a long day of hiking. Finally, his passion shows through everything he does. We could not have asked for, or found, a better guide, companion and friend than Roberto. We are exited to do another trek with Roberto.

Awesome experience trekking the Susa Valley!
Earlier this year we met Roberto and he took us snowshoeing through the Susa valley and it was an awesome experience that everyone should do. Roberto was a patient and accommodating guide. He had all the extra gear we needed for the trek, and we weren't left short missing out on anything. We came from Milan in the day and it worked perfectly. The sights were beautiful and it was all worthwhile! Thank you Roberto!
Alanna - Australia Testimonials 27
Amazing trip to Lanzo Valley
Roberto is familiar with the landscape and hike at a comfortable pace. He even prepared extra gears for me after checking out the weather on the morning itself. The scenery around Lanzo Valley is breathtaking. Look for Roberto if you are keen to explore. You are in good hands with him around.

Excellent 2 days walking in Mt.Robeinet
Roberto was an excellent guide for a couple days hiking near Turino (specially at Mt Robinet). From the initial engagement through to arriving in Turino, Roberto was very helpful and excellent replies on email/whatsapp - ensuring that we had everyting we needed for the tour. During the guided hike, Roberto is an extrememly personalble guy. So friendly, and was very knowledgeable on the local area, and his passion for the outdoors was infectious! i would definitely recommend Roberto and Trekking Alps again.

One of Best Experiences of my Life
Amazing. Elisabetta picked us in the train station in Torino and we drove to meet Roberto and another hiker. Roberto had all the extra gear we needed for the trip. We had an amazing hike to see Monte Viso. The view was breathtaking. We then continued to hike down and just enjoy all the weather and beautiful countryland. Roberto and Betta are very sweet and great people to spend a day with. Hope to do it again soon.
Stephanie - USA/Colombia Testimonials 44
Breathtaking Alpine Trek!
Prior to my arrival in Italy, Roberto was very responsive, professional and helpful in helping me plan my snowshoe adventure. Our day trip was wonderful! He is knowledgeable, sincere, and a pleasure to travel with. He was able to adjust the hike to match my fitness level. The pictures he took and sent were a great keepsake. We even stopped in a nearby village to take in some local history, which I absolutely loved! I most certainly would recommend Trekking Alps, and definitely plan on returning for another adventure soon!

Enchanting, exhilarating and memories of a lifetime
My partner and I braved the chilly Italian alps with Roberto in Jan this year and were absolutely enthralled with the magnificent hike through pristine wilderness and breathtaking scenery. There are no words to describe making it to the top of that mountain! We can't speak highly enough of Roberto's professionalism, passion and knowledge, not to mention the fact he's a top guy who is very easy to spend time around. The accommodation we stayed in was basic but very cozy (And warm at -15 temps very chilly for tropical acclimatized aussies!). Would recommend this trip it was the stand out of our whole holiday.

Aosta Valley Winter Hikes
Trekking Alps is a very good service for hiking in the Italian Alps. Roberto was amazingly helpful in providing us with prompt replies to emails.

Overnight Hike in Gran Paradiso
Trekking Alps is the best service for any guided hike or tour of the Italian Alps. It started with Roberto's prompt and attentive email responses. He accommodated our dates and times and helped us choose the best type of hike for us. Before we left the States for Europe all the major details had been discussed and we knew exactly what we needed to bring with us. Trekking Alps guide Enrico pick us up from our Turin hotel, let us rent his own packs and sleeping bags, helped us purchase local meats and cheeses for the hike, planned the route, and rented the hut for us. Enrico's English is perfect, and his knowledge of all things Italy, Alps, and hiking is even better. We learned so much from him. With Enrico we hike through small abandoned villages, crossed avalanche drifts, did some night hiking, and saw incredible views of nature. I highly recommend Enrico and Trekking Alps. If you love nature and want to experience something most tourists never do, then this is the best way to do it. Just be honest about your hiking experience and level and Trekking Alps will tailor a hike just for you.

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!!!!

2 days in Aosta Valley
Roberto took us on an unforgettable trek in the alps. Everything was wonderfully planned and organized, the trek was amazing and Roberto made it extra fun. We’ve been hiking in Aosta Valley with view of Mont Blanc(Monte Bianco). Highly recommended!

Fantastic Amenity Trek
A must visit if you are in Italy. My friend and I went on this trek during 00-aosta-valley-trek-03673the 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.
Anirudh – India Testimonials 6
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.

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.
Nics – Thailand Testimonials 67
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.
John - USA Testimonials 44
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.
Shri and Usha – India Testimonials 6
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!
Rob - New Zeland Testimonials 70
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!!!!!!!
Elise - USA Testimonials 3
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.

Andrea - Italy Testimonials 22
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.
Robert - USA Testimonials 3
Simply fantastic!
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.
Eric - USA Testimonials 3
Amazing and challenging first hike
I travelled with Trekking Alps in July 2016 with a team of 35 people from work for charity. Roberto was the perfect guide. I had never trekked before and he was brilliant, very encouraging and extremely patient. Even though I was quite slow him and his team were very patient with me and kept me going. It was tough but because of their encouragement its given me a new found love for trekking and look forward to doing it again.
Michelle - Mauritius Testimonials 79
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!
Don - United Kingdom Testimonials 80
July 2016 fantastic hike
We went to the Lanzo Valley in July 2016 for a charity hike with our team at work. Roberto was an excellent guide - patient, good fun and really helped us to ensure everything was well organised, challenging but achievable for all. We loved staying in a hut (a "sleepover" with 33 colleagues isn't something to forget soon!) and the scenery and overall experience were fantastic. Thanks too to our second and third guides Atillio and Ambre who were very nice and ensured that the whole group could make the trip while also allowing some to push themselves further. Thanks again; we're already planning next year's trip!

An Amazing Experience
Hiking with Roberto was one of the best experiences i"ve had. For the dates that I wanted to hike the weather was suppose to be horrible, so Roberto researched for the best possible place we can hike and not be affected by the weather and he found the best place! we hiked for 2 days, stayed in a hut and watched the sun rise on top of the clouds on the peak. He arranges everything according to our ability and what we want. I recommend this for everyone!

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.

Amazing experience!!
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!

Unforgettable memories!!
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.

Cool Experience!
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!

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!

Wonderful Gran Paradiso Winter Hike
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!
Kelsey - United States Testimonials 3
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!
Kara - USA Testimonials 3
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.
Lindsey - USA Testimonials 3
Great Adventure!
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!
Rawan - Israel Testimonials 17
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!
Brandon - United States Testimonials 3
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!
Rihannon - United Kingdom Testimonials 7
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.
Aoife - Ireland Testimonials 31
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!
Rob and Nina - New Zeland Testimonials 70
Great Hike!
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.
Noa - Israel Testimonials 17
Beautiful Adventures
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.
Nissreen - Jordan Testimonials 106
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!

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!!!

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.

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!

Simply Beautiful
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!

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 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. Feeling secure and having full confidence in Roberto's abilities left my wife Katherine and I with not much else to do than enjoy the environment! To say that we were awe struck doesn't do how we felt justice! The views of the Alps range were magnificent and Roberto was full of interesting facts to share. We traveled though forests were the silence was deafening and wide open valleys where we spotted Chamois along the ridges. In short the route was varied and always beautiful. The hut we slept in en route was well maintained and comfortable enough to get a full nights sleep.  Despite having a great time on the mountain, I was most impressed with Roberto's commitment to us as his guests! Our hike with Roberto was probably the most enjoyable time we spent in Italy. We went away not only having gained great memories but also new friends.

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.
