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!!

I have never been at altitude, can I participate?2019-05-02T16:23:53+00:00

Before leaving for a trip of this type it is necessary to test one’s acclimatization capacity, for this we will make some exits before the trip that will allow us to know each other better and try the acclimatization path.

How should I prepare for a trek at high altitude?2019-05-02T16:22:53+00:00

The most important thing before leaving is to walk and do aerobic activities (bike, Nordic walking). We will create a specific program of individual and group preparation, just to allow everyone to get prepared.

Before leaving and when returning, we recommend doing a cure for lactic ferments to strengthen the intestinal flora.

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

Before leaving you must consider carefully what to bring with you, for this we will organize a dedicated meeting in which we will verify the material you have and how to integrate it:

– 2 short-sleeved technical shirts

– 2 long-sleeved technical shirts

– a light trekking trousers

– a heavy trekking trousers

– a light or primaloft down jacket

– a fleece or heavy sweater

– a 2 or 3 layer shell jacket

– a structured boot

– a comfortable approach shoe

– 2 pairs of thin stockings (better if anti-blisters)

– 1 pair of heavy socks

– 1 pair of graduated compression stockings to improve circulation

What do you eat during the day?2019-05-02T16:18:52+00:00

· In the morning we have a nice breakfast all together: coffee, tea, eggs, bread, jam and porridge, the quantities are usually very abundant.

· During the day we eat some sandwiches in the villages or if we want we stop if we find characteristic places along the way.

· In the evening, however, our assistants will provide us with succulent meals based on rice, legumes, chicken, eggs and other fresh products.

We advise you to always bring some snacks / bars and a thermos to fill in the morning with water or hot tea.

If it’s bad weather?2019-05-02T16:16:50+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.
