Patagonia: an alpine trip down South [1]

[EN/RO below] I don't find it hard to explain why I chose to travel to the “end of the world” to climb mountains. In the climbing world there are a few hot spots that attract alpinists and climbers for their mountain beauty, challenges and history. Among Himalaya, the Alps or Alaska, Patagonia stands out for its unique landscape, its tower shaped peaks and some of the harshest weather conditions on the planet.

I love the mountains and the sports. I also love to travel, to discover the beauty of nature, to meet new people and learn about different cultures. My semi-nomadic lifestyle revolves around my family and my two passions: alpinism and geography, that have blended so well together. I believe that authentic alpinism means exploration, discovery of new ways of getting to the top, minimalist, fast and clean ascents and these are the values I try to reflect in my personal projects.

My passion for the mountains started when I was a child when I would often make small excursions around the city or go camping with the scouts. Since then I visited or guided expeditions in the Alps, Himalayas, Andes and other remote areas. When I am not involved in personal projects I enjoy sharing my passion for the mountains with those wishing to discover it. To get in touch, you can write at
