The mountain guides from Arco Mountain Guide in Trentino

An adventure with the professionals from the mountains

Climbing and walking in the mountains with a mountain guide is like a voyage, like sharing an adventure.

A mountain guide is not only there to accompany you into the mountains in complete safety but also to pass on local knowledge and a depth of information acquired from their long experience and passion for the mountain environment.

Why book a mountain guide?

The mountain guide is the only recognised professional qualification on an international level. These guides are fully trained in all aspects of sporting activity in the mountains from trekking to ski mountaineering, from rock climbing to traditional mountain climbing.

The guide is experienced in evaluating risk and therefore avoids dangerous situations. He can teach you how not to take unnecessary risk.

And then it is well known that a local guide knows everything about his mountain and he is ready to share the beauty of nature with you.

Pleased to meet you, I am Gino.

Gino Malfer Guida Alpina Arco Lago di Garda

I speak english and french, I am a multi-discipline climber and live in Dro. I am one of the small group of climbers who contributed to the birth and growth of climbing in Arco where I have climbed all the most difficult routes and opened also several new ones. Arco and the Sarca valley is my home.

I teach rock climbing and mountaineering with personalised courses for children, teenagers and adults. For over 20 years I have accompanied beginners, enthusiasts and climbers into our mountains. Sensitive to the needs and requirements of each individual, I have taught the art of mountain climbing to over 1000 people.

I love to travel and in over 30 years of climbing experience I have climbed notable routes in the Dolomites, the Alps, Nepal, India, Peru, Brasil, Patagonia, Norway and the Yosemite Valley as well as several other places.

Thanks to my dedication and passion for all aspects of the sport of mountaineering, I have achieved the qualification of International Mountain Guide UIAGM.

I am an instructor and coach for rock climbing, route planning and examiner for the Italian FASI (Italian climbing federation) and a coach for the youth section of CONI. I am also a park guide and route planner for AINEVA (International association for expertise in snow conditions and avalanches). I have a diploma for rope and tree work in the commercial sector.

I look forward to welcoming you to Lake Garda and sharing with you the beauty of our mountains in complete safety.

Together with me you’ll find Fabrizio, Andrea and Francesco that are also International Alpine Guides from UIAGM that share my philosophy.

We are waiting for you on Lake Garda to enjoy the beauty of the mountains in total safety.
