20 years of Alpine rescue
10 years of helicopter rescue, which make me very sensitive to prevention and training in the most complex areas.
6 years at the army as a training officer in the mountains and beyond

I have been working on rivers and in the mountains since I was 16, first as an assistant instructor, then as a teacher and guide.
My cultural know-how leads me to be eclectic and able to range from one discipline to another without problems, I have always practiced different sports even at a high competitive level, I love teaching, transmitting and sharing passions and experiences.

Practiced sports: all those typical sports of the Alpine Guide disciplines like climbing, ice climbing, high altitude expeditions, off-piste skiing, ski mountaineering, canyoning, river canoeing, sailing, paragliding, telemark, triathlon and all that concerns the bicycle, in short … I like to explore and test myself!

My professional sports life is combined with a very intense professional insurance life that ranges from managing complex risks related to the Outdoor world, up to normal everyday coverage, of course, managing very carefully the professional commitments in the two areas, and relying on valid collaborators.

I work in both my professions with great passion, being able to cut out both spaces according to the moments, this system in my opinion keeps the enthusiasm high and the desire to do well and always improve.

You can reach me by phone but if I don’t answer at the first time it’s not because I don’t feel like it, it’s just that I’m always very busy.

ANDREA MALTA SPEZIALI

A.Mountain guide – specialization in Canyoning – Alpine Rescue technician in Ala

I am from Avio, the last town in the south of Trentino, a border region with availability for beautiful adventures.

I live at the foot of Monte Baldo and since I was a little boy I have enjoyed going to the mountains, in my life the mountain has represented and represents the expression of what I am, of how I live of what I feel. I love the rocks in every season, I love water in all its forms: liquid, crystallized in flakes and even frozen when the cold forms ice falls. I feel good in the mountains and this is enough to be able to appreciate every aspect of it, climbing and skiing ever since..

I started attending the Alpine Rescue at the age of 17 as a young student, today I am a mountain rescue technician.

My professional training began in February 2014 with a presentation of alpine climbing, rock climbing, ski mountaineering ascents, climbing on icefalls, etc. at the college of the Trentino mountain guides.

After the very hard selections I had the luck and the pleasure of participating in the training course for aspiring guides, passing the various exams with positive results. During the course I also had the opportunity to achieve the specialization in canyoning, thanks to this I’m part of Xadventure now.

I like to transmit, I like to teach, I like to experience emotions together with the people who frequent Xadventure.

What did I do before becoming a Guide?
I used to climb rocks to make the climbing walls safe, I worked in the companies of displacement and so I lived hanging on a rope even before, with the difference that today I am climbing up, yesterday I was abseiling down!

I’m waiting for you to have fun together … and if it’s bad weather?
Well ..in the worst case scenario we can have a drink together!!

ALESSIO MIORI

A. Mountain guide – Specialization in Canyoning

My name is Alessio Miori, and I’m 27 years old, I live in a small town in the mountain near Trento.

Ever since I was a child, my parents have made me discover the mountain and I have been more and more often as I grew up.
After several jobs, and after spending a year abroad between the Indian Himalayas, New Zealand and Australia, dividing my time between climbing and work, I returned to Italy and in 2015 I started the courses to become an Mountain Guide, completed at the beginning of 2017.

I love to visit the mountains at 360 degrees in all its seasons, although I can say that I prefer the cold season and the skis and accompanying people to discover the countless enchanted places that surround us is very stimulating for me.
Hope to see you soon!

MATTIA PIFFER

A.Mountain guide – Mountaineering master – specialization in Canyoning

My name is Mattia Piffer and I’m 27 years old, I live in Povo, 
a fraction near Trento.
The passion for the mountains has been handed down to me since I was a child by my parents who, besides getting closer to it, have taught me to respect and love it.

For all my youth I continued to cultivate this interest, dedicating myself to much of the outdoor activities that can be practiced in a mountain environment such as: climbing on the cliff, mountaineering in the Dolomites and in the high mountains, trekking, ski mountaineering, ice climbing, snowshoe hiking, canyoning.

The attraction for the mountains has become more and more important over the course of my life, so much that I decided to make my passion also my work, earning the diploma of A. Mountain guide in 2018.
This allowed me to be able to transmit my enthusiasm and skills developed over the years to those who want to approach this world.

I am an extrovert and very motivated person, I like to relate to the public whether it is composed of young people or adults, despite my young age I am sure I can convert to you, something that will make your trip an experience of personal training and also entertainment.

I wait for you to discover together the innumerable beauties of the alpine environment.

A presto,
