About us

TheAlps travel agency is passionate about the Monterosa, and we have been arranging personally tailored trips to selected destinations in Italy since the end of the 90s. We are based in Champoluc and we also have an office in Nacka, Sweden. Welcome!

Our trips

When you travel with us your holiday will be tailored according to your wants and needs. Whether you are travelling with your family, with a group or as part of a corporate company, we will put the same passion into organising every detail of your trip.

We will build your holiday together with you, and only with local people who are passionate about what they do, whether they are hotel owners, mountain guides, food and wine suppliers or taxi drivers.

When you  travel with us you will be mixing physical and mental activity. Ski and learn about the Walsers of the Middle Ages, trek and see the Ancient Romans’ Alpine Gold Mines, swim in the emerald waters of Sardinia and experience the magic of the island’s wild inland, or sample the noble Piemonte wines produced according to the long tradition of the last royal family of the Italian Peninsula! 

Feel free to contact us and tell us about your dreams or ideas for your Italian holiday adventure. Let us make your dreams come true!

Our Places

Some places in Italy are particularly dear to our hearts. The valleys of Monterosa and especially the village of Champoluc has been our playground for four generations. Sardinia has amazed us with its beauty and mystery for the past 20 years. Our family only buys wine and rice for Milanese risotto in Piemonte. My father was a water polo champion in the early 1900s touring the Italian Riviera.

These are the places we want to share with you, to show you what is special and unique about each and every one.

Genuine Travel

This is for people who are interested in and want to get a feel for the place they travel to. Genuine tourism is about the people who live there and want to share it with their guests.

To be a genuine tourist is to experience a place in its uniqueness, the land with man's marks upon it throughout history, travelling at the pace of man and nature. Tourism, when done on an intimate and small scale, offers people a genuine opportunity to meet each other and gain a real experience of a different place.




Who we are

  • Marta Capetillo

    I'm passionate about the Alps, they're my heart's home. I've been in Champoluc for all my life, and I believe in respect for the environment and the people of this place. We all gain by enjoying its beauty, while trying to make a minimum impact.

  • Linnea Nielsel

    Living, working in and being in love with the Alps since over a decade and for the last couple of years I have run a B&B with an annexing winery in the Aosta Valley. I am bon vivant who enjoys the coffee breaks as much as the skiing and trekking.

  • Martyna Olszowska

    Being in the mountains, experiencing freedom and space - both the inner and the outer - that it gives you is one of the most fantastic feelings one can have in life. I am web editor with as much love for words and photography, as trekking and skiing.
