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 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 it the first time it’s not because I don’t feel like, it’s just that I’m always very busy.

ANDREA MALTA SPEZIALI

A. Alpine 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 off 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!!
