“It’s not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves” Sir Edmund Hillary.
Hi my name is Claudio, and I am the founder of Monkey Business Tours, but that is not all.
I am as well a masters student of political science at the University of Salzburg and a father of wonderful twin boys. From a young age I have had a fascination with the mountains and military history. Both inherited from my family, full of alpinists and my grandad who was a general of the air force.
Nature for me is like going back to the basics, once you come back everything is twice as better. Combining that and the war stories that have shape our world has become a passion and the reason behind this company.
Now after guiding more than 1000 people a year for many years I have developed not only as a guide but as a person. There is no growth without friction.
For me there is no greater satisfaction than doing the things you love despite the challenges.
Maybe that is the reason why I love the mountains so much. They are hard to climb but the higher you go, the better the view.
