Mountain Guide

Garda Outdoor

Alpine guide on Lake Garda

Hi, I’m Demis Centi, an alpine guide of Garda Outdoor. I live near Lake Garda and I am a UIAGM Mountain Guide regularly registered to the Trentino Mountain Guide Association since 1999.
A Mountain Guide is a professional of the mountain trained and qualified according to international standards. A Mountain Guide is also an adventure companion that shares with you every challenge you face and protects you from the risks of the mountains thanks to his experience and his knowledge of mountains and routes.

I am in love with nature in every season, I am a frequent traveller always looking for new adventures.

I enjoy accompanying you on the mountains and making you discover new places of the world, opening new tracks with sealskins and skiing down snow-covered slopes, teaching you to climb and sharing the satisfaction you feel when you reach the top of the mountain or the astonishment when you see for the first time those wonderful landscapes and I feel happy when I see you enjoying yourself while diving into a crystal-clear water pool in a natural canyon.

In summer I organise many canyon tours, climbing courses, vie ferrate and hiking routes near Lake Garda and on the Dolomites. In winter, together with the travel agency “Campo Base”, I propose journeys dedicated to ski-mountaineering in Norway, Georgia, Turkey, Morocco and even Iceland since 2018! In autumn and spring, I organize hiking routes on Crete Island, in Ethiopia and the Selvaggio Blu hiking route in Sardinia.

Be it an adventure journey, a climbing or ski-mountaineering course, a day of hiking or a via ferrata, you will be part of a group of people sharing the same goals. We will share the beauty of the mountains, learning to respect the nature and getting to know it step by step while exploring wild and untouched sceneries.

The pleasure of discovery is always within me when I travel alone and when I accompany you on the mountains. My experience, my passion and respect for the mountain await you along with a lot of fun and maybe even some singing with my guitar after dinner underneath the night sky.

I am sure we will have fun together!

    We (my boyfriend and I) booked the via ferrata di contrabbandieri (Smugglers Route) with Demis as our tour guide. It was absolutely amazing.
    First of all: Demis was the nicest guide we could possibly get! He explained everything, made sure our equipment fits, calmed me down at any time (I am a little bit afraid of heights), thought of taking breaks every now and then to drink water (it was very hot that day), took photos for us and was just really thoughtful in general. He also gave us a lot of interesting information about Lake Garda and the area. Just great!

    We spent 5 days with Demis Centi of Garda Outdoor in Arco. He is quite simply the very best guide ever… He is calm, super safety conscious, encouraging and generally a very positive guy.
