FROM YESTERDAY'S PASSION TO TODAY’S PROFESSIONALISM!
For us, the Monte Rosa alpine Guides, this mountain was and is our water, our land, the stones of our homes and our work / job.
But it is also a mountain still to be discover and to make known, to be feared and respected.
The Alagna Alpine Guides Group was founded in 1872, with the support of CAI Varallo, is now a group with 40 guides who, since 1989, when the mountain guide was legally recognized, operates with professionalism in the mountains of Valsesia and of the world.
We tried to make of the high mountains, a privileged place of our business, a gym for multiple disciplines, what with our action field and our professionalism makes them safe and accessible to all.
The sportive climbing, the ice-falls climbing, the canyoning, the trekking, the expeditions outside Europe are the proposals that we are able to offer to those who want to discover the mountain with us, perhaps with an eye of attention to educational concepts that are part of the necessary luggage for those who want to tackle the mountain.
A STORY NOT TO FORGET
The Association of Alpine Guides of Alagna was founded in 1872 under the patronage of CAI Varallo, and it was the second in the country after the one of Courmayeur founded four years earlier.Eight were the founders: Giovanni Barone, Giuseppe Guglielmina and Carlo Martinale from Alagna, Antonio Bruno di Riva Valdobbia, Giovanni Gamba, Giacomo Valenti, Giorgio Mo Allagranzina and Giovanni Mo Costabella from the lower valley.
From the years to follow the staff of the group had new entries with original guides of Alagna and other from the lower valleys: Val Sermenza, Val Mastallone. The Alagna Alpine Guide Group it was, even then, the reference group for those wishing to embark on the alpine guide profession.
Of course the Alagna mountain guides have had and still have an important part in the history of Valsesia side of Monte Rosa; not only! Since the early years of activity of our association, the members also distinguished in different internationally renowned campaigns.
