Mont Avic Natural Park Hiking is the second park of Aosta Valley and is located in the Champorcer and Champendraz Valley. In this Hike we will even touch the small and hidden Clavalitè Valley. The Mont Avic National Park is geographically very near to Gran Paradiso National Park. Actually it has the same majestic alpine territory. It is possible to organize an hike in which you visit both Parks as in few hours you can move from one park to the other.
Mont Avic is technically not a National Park but a regional park. The change is negligible for the visitors as the beauty is breathtaking and the environment is very wild and nice. The only thing that really change is for the people that work there take money to invest coming from different institutions. Maybe for this reason this park is a bit less famous and for this same reason the Mont Avic National Park Hiking is even more interesting. The area has all the Alpine features of its neighbor: wildlife, beautiful mountain passes and nice peaks. Moreover is maybe the hiking area with more alpine lakes of the region. As the Mont Avic Park has a south exposition it is very well exposed to sun and the ancient glaciers melted few century ago. The glaciers left their heritage in hundreds of lakes and nice water areas where peculiar wildlife can survive.
The Mont Avic Natural Park Hiking described here is a 4 days ring with wonderful landscapes and beautiful mountain environment for all the 4 days. We will not meet any human assessment except the mountain shelter(rifugio), so we will have the chance to live in the complete nature for all our trekking. This is luxury in the XXI century!

In all our trekking there is a high degree of flexibility. It is possible to sleep twice in an unguarded hut making the hike cheaper and more adventurous. It is also possible to stop for two nights in the same shelter to enjoy the high mountain environment or to explore the area around reaching some pass or lakes which are not part of the original hike. Difficulty and duration of the hike can be changed and accomodation in bed and breakfast or hotel can be arranged. Just write as an email at email@example.com and we will give you all the informations!

Roberto made this experience one that I will never forget. His knowledge of the different treks as well as climbing is really helpful. He made us feel comfortable by skyping with him and give us more information about the trip. Not only is he a great, guide but it was great talking with someone from the area about Italy in general. The scenery can’t be beat either.
Wow! What an experience. My sister and I contacted Roberto looking for a challenging yet fun and rememberable experience and that is exactly what we got, plus more! Roberto was the perfect guide for this type of activity; fun, adventurous, brilliant and skilled. This was my first time snowshoeing and I felt completely comfortable. He supplied all of the necessary materials for the hike so this made preparation easy and effortless. We hiked for the day and then stayed in a shelter overnight and hiked back the next. The time in the mountains was one I will never forget!
This was an experience of a life time. I will recommended this to everyone! Roberto was the best!
I signed for this hike a month before so i had the opportunity to Skype with the great guide Roberto and to ask him all the questions i had and revived all the answers I needed. When meeting Roberto after 1 minute you can tell you meet an expert. He is very experienced and well equipped. He was very patient with me and helped go through the hard moments of the trek. I advise you to work out all your muscles and make sure you are in a good shape. Anyway there is no doubt you will enjoy the amazing view of the mountains and living in nature with Roberto’s advises and help. I was traveling solo but i joined the group that also signed for the same hike. the group was fun and a very good companion. I was there in march so the snow was still deep and the hard part was walking in snow shoes. i will diffidently try it again in summer.
A must have experience!
