Who are we

Patta Libra is a Sport and Cultural Association, born in 2015 according to the desire to propose to everyone outdoor and cultural/social activities, with professional guides who will lead and teach you where and what you’ll decide.

“Patta Libra” means in Aostan patois dialect “free paw” and wants to remind you that there are no borders to move and have fun!

The outdoor sports are useful, healthy, funny, are done with other people and are a way to discover wonderful places and beautiful world edges. With outdoor sport activities you’ll understand how the natural environment is the best gym in each season of the year!

Patta Libra will take you by bike, by walk, by boat and with other means of transport to discover Aosta Valley, the mountains, the Italian coasts, the italian inland, the south of our beautiful country and our nearby islands, always with professional guides.

The activities which we propose are mountain bike, trekking, rafting, kayak, hydrospeed and “hike&bike”, holidays, camping and adventure. They are all activities for children, guys, adults, families, people who would like to improve the technique, beginners, people who want multidays or multiactivities, people who want to try a new “means of transport” to know new places… so, there is place for everyone!

But our proposal is not only pure sport. We would like to enjoy with you the group activity, the fun and the places of our valley and outside we’ll see! So, why not, there will be also lunches, dinners camping, multidays tours, barbecues and holidays!
