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.

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.

I’m Gino, the alpine guide of Arco Mountain Guide in Arco on Lake Garda.

I speak english and french, I am a multi-discipline climber and live in Dro. 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 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).

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.

    Perfect two days! We booked the multi pitch course and definitely recommend it.
    Gino is a great coach and we felt absolutely safe all the time. The two routes we climbed were absolutely beautiful with a view on lake Garda, ideal regarding the level of complexity and we enjoyed every Meter of it!
    Thanks a lot and see you in the wall 😉

    Gino of Arco Mountain Guides accompanied my family of four (14 yo, 20 yo, 52 yo and 55 yo) on a Via Ferrata at Cima Capi. He is a charming guide with very good English. We all loved the Via Ferrata, young and old. Any anxiety I had soon disappeared as Gino was a calm and competent presence. There is plenty of safety gear.
