Alpine hiking hut to hut rock climbing via ferrata mountaineering courses and guided hiking by Mountain Guides Arco

Note: The alpine mountaineering trips which we are offering have been chosen among the most beautiful and most famous ones in the respective areas. Partially the trails are crossing glaciers or sometimes "airy" paths which are equipped with iron ropes (via ferrata). The guidance by a mountain guide is indispensable, unless you have great high mountain experience and complete command of rope maneuvers which are necessary for the crossing of glaciers (for example rescue maneuvers from glacier crevasses, knot system for a rope team) as well as the correct use of the technical equipment on the VIA FERRATA (iron/ladder paths). The security of the participants is top priority for the mountain guide of alpine School Arco. He will teach the participants alpine techniques and demonstrate how to handle possible perils in the mountains in a proper way.
It is possible to change the date of the alpine mountaineering trip, once the minimum number of participants has been reached or once the amount corresponding to the minim. no. of participants has been paid.
For our guests who are arriving by plane we are offering a pick-up service from the airport to Lake Garda.
