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!!

How long does the hike take?2019-05-02T16:42:18+00:00

The hike lasts 8 days from the day we enter the Kilimanjaro park to the day we leave, from the start we will be the 7th day on the top.

What does it mean to acclimatize?2019-05-02T16:37:23+00:00

It means giving our organism time to settle at the altitude that gradually rises, the great job we will do every day will be just that, managing change to adapt to the quota

But if I have never been up in altitude can I still participate?2019-05-02T16:34:43+00:00

Of course, many of the people who came with us had climbed lower mountains or had not exceeded important quotas at all, what we will do is prepare ourselves with the right acclimatization

Should we organize food?2019-05-02T16:33:40+00:00

No all the logistics are organized, we will also have with us the kitchen tent, the food, and everything necessary to safely and properly make our shipment

We will sleep in the tent, the place will change every day and our tent will be mounted to the next field.

What skills are needed to participate in the shipment?2019-05-02T16:30:47+00:00

The Kilimanjaro is a high altitude trek that needs good walking resistance so you need to prepare yourself to walk in the mountains or on the hills for at least 10 hours a week.

Can I do it even if I have never done a trek at high altitude?2019-05-02T16:29:46+00:00

Yes if you are ready to question yourself and if you are not afraid to work hard. The high altitude can be annoying but if the path is managed following the proper procedure to adapt your body, even people with an average workout can do it. Sure you have to be healthy and not have problems declared of heart.

What to bring?2019-05-02T16:21:40+00:00

It can always happen that weather conditions require a change of plans and make travel more difficult. All our trips require a strong spirit of adaptability and adventure. We will try to transform even an apparently negative situation, into a positive experience, just change the point of view: we will make the sailors dispersed in the mists, we will be sailors like the Vikings did, we will surely live unforgettable experiences.
