This Aosta Valley trek is a marvelous opportunity to enjoy an adventure in the Alps. The walks are not really short but quite mild and that is why it is considered an hike. Nevertheless you have to be prepared to 5-6 hours per day hiking in middle mountain environment. We’ll sleep in two very nice unguarded huts and enjoy the view of the most spectacular mountain of the Alps. We’ll be very near to Gran Combin, in the border with Switzerland, and during the hike we will spot Mont Blanc, Gran Paradiso, Grivola and maybe even Matterhorn and Monte Rosa. In few words it is basically an amazing opportunity to enjoy an amazing Alps trekking at affordable price.
To wake up and going to sleep in the mountain is an amazing feeling and that is why it is very nice to have a three days hike the beautiful region of Aosta Valley. The area is full of meadows, alpine lakes and high pastures. From the unguarded huts we can plan some hike till mountain passes or alpine lakes, according to the energy left. Enjoy the Aosta Valley trek all year round!

I went hiking for 3 days at Valgrisenche with Trekking Alps. A really nice experience.
The landscape is beautiful. Roberto is a really good guide! It’s his passion – so you’re in good hands!! I liked Roberto’s funny and kind way-;)) the people came from different countries which was also a nice experience!! A good choice!!

Valgrisenche Hike Tour: Highly reccomended
Me and my girlfriend spent three days with Roberto in july 2016, I never thought I could find such beautiful places so close to my howntown... It was an amazing surprise!
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.
