Autumn mountain hiking is maybe the most underevalued period to go hiking. It is true that weather forecast can change a lot from year to year. But autumn in north west of Italy can be just fabulous. Hiking in autumn can be as nice as in summer but with a great variety of colors: yellow and red trees are welcoming us in the forests and hiking in low altitude can be an amazing experience. Depending on the weather of every year we can still trek in high altitude without using the snowshoes. Days are shorter especially in late November but you will enjoy the Italian Alps in an exclusive way as not many people know that trekking in that period is lovely. The weather change quite a lot the possible hikes and a degree of flexibility in planning the hike have to be taken into account. But still there are lots of huts and shelters which are perfect for our autumn mountain hiking and you will have the chance to make among the best landscapes pictures of the year. Come hiking in autumn in Italy and you will discover why Trekking Alps is guiding in the mountains all year long!

Autumn Mountain Hiking Reviews
“Amazing week end in Gran Paradiso!!”
Myself and 2 others flew from London to Milan and then got a very quick train journey to Turin (the fast trains are only 1 hour).
When we met Roberto he was so well equipped, he had everything we had forgotten or just better equipment for us to use in his car which came in very handy! When we got to the shelter on Saturday we had some very tasty food and even improvised on some mulled wine! 🙂 We are vegetarians but that really was no problem. For the trek itself, we had AMAZING views. We literally caught the last few days of autumn, so it was very pretty with orange leaves and a bit of snow. We literally couldn’t have asked for better weather.
Whether you are experienced or not, I would definitely recommend going with Roberto. He made sure everyone had a fun time and is chilled out. It’s not often you get to go hiking with a local that knows the area really very. I’m now thinking of going back in Summer for part2.
Oh and I should mention we were lucky enough to see 2 Vultures and some falcons, along with plenty of Ibexes and Chamois 😀
100% recommend hiking with Roberto, you will have a great time!!!!
“Fantastic Amenity Trek”
A must visit if you are in Italy. My friend and I went on this trek during the end of October and must say the colors of autumn were extraordinary. Roberto is an excellent guide who knows his stuff. After half way, the path of our trek became difficult and Roberto gave a motivational speech to not stop until the end ( which was not possible by me and had to take a couple of short breaks in between). When we finally reached the destination the view was breathtaking and we were accompanied by 4 other locals who were on a vacation. The best part was they were as young as 65 years old (2 and a half times my age) which made me look like a 100 year old man. At night Roberto cooked us dinner and we played cards in an old hut on top of the mountains. Overall is was an amazing experience I would definitely go for another trek with Roberto in the near future. Thank you Roberto.
“On Top Of The World!!!”
My husband and I did an EXCELLENT hike with Roberto!!! The difficulty that he chose was just right for us. It was a little bit foggy down at the bottom, but after we started climbing higher than the clouds, the view was AMAZING!!! We always felt safe with Roberto and he spent extra time pointing things out to us or just to check if we were OK/having fun. Even if you are not a professional hiker, ANYONE/EVERYONE should go on a hike with Roberto! He really knows his stuff and we can honestly say it was one of the most amazing experiences of our lives! Like us, he will definitely find the right path for you… 🙂
Thanks again Roberto, see you next time!!!
“The most thrilling I’ve done all year! (Hiking in Valpalline in Autumn)”
I absolutely loved my hike up the Italian Alps! I can honestly say that it was the most amazing experience I have ever had. I don’t usually hike mountains of this altitude (and my body felt the consequences) but the experience was worth it. I am definitely going to do another hike! Roberto our guide was extremely amicable, interesting, and fun to talk to. He knew so much about the nature around us, which made our long hiking trips less painful and more educational. This is a must try for all aspiring adventures! You can even choose the level of difficulty depending on your skill and fitness. Once again, a huge thanks to Roberto for organizing and leading such a spectacular adventure 🙂
“Breathtaking scenery great trek and fantastic guide!”
I booked a trek with Roberto for the end of October. I got good advice from Roberto about what to bring and where to meet up in Turin. I would recommend trekking with Trekking Alps, I chose to travel and trek solo but there were 3 others on my trek so also had the pleasure of meeting them and their company. It was a real adventure and it was great to have an experienced and knowledgable guide to show us the way. I enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the rather bracing trek up Valpelline in Valle d’aosta and will go back for another trek.
“Excellent guide with unbeatable enthusiasm”
We hiked with “Trekking Alps” few times, and very highly recommend Roberto as a guide. He has an enthusiastic and energetic exuberance that makes every hike an enjoyable experience. He can tailor each hike to the abilities of those participating, and has an intimate knowledge of the Alps around Torino. He definitely goes that extra distance to ensure a great time in the mountains and we will certainly go with Roberto on more hikes when we return to the Alps!
Trekking Alps was a great choice for our hiking vacation. They offer a wide variety of hikes and treks, different levels of difficulty and flexible number of days. Our guide Roberto was super nice, very professional, and the entire pickup, hike and return were very well organized.
“Hiking in October with Trekking Alps”
I had 4 days together with Roberto in Alps. Although the best season is over but it is still one of best trek I ever had, beautiful mountains, lakes and wild animals… so a wonderful experiences. Roberto did an excellent job on that trek. He is passionate and knowledgeable about natural and a good companion in the mountains. We shared a lot about our shared passion on natural but also cultures and history … about Italy and China. Overall I recommend him highly.
