Monte Bianco Hiking Area

the most dramatic views with its amazing glaciers and high altitude rock walls at high altitude

Monte Bianco (Mont Blanc in french) is the highest peak of the Alps. Monte Bianco Hiking Area probably offers the most dramatic views with its amazing glaciers and high altitude rock walls at high altitude. Here all the mountaineer of Europe and not only, come to challenge their self in the most difficult and huge mountain of the Alps. For this reason Courmayeur and Chamonix, the main towns below the Monte Bianco, are pretty crowded compared with other areas of the Alps.

The Tour of Mont Blanc is among the most popular and famous route of the world due to its natural mountain beauty. On the other hand, in the high season is reccomended to not follow this route if you want to live the mountain in an autenthic way, with the Trekking Alps spirit. The Monte Bianco Hiking Area is certainly pretty famous and it is at its best off-season (not in Christmas holiday and in August) and it is not the right area if you want to avoid people and live an experience in solitude your trekking. Especially in Winter and in Summer these mountain areas of the Alps areas are pretty crowded.

Nevertheless Monte Bianco certainly worths the visit and if you have the chance to come hiking in a Spring or Autumn you’ll enjoy the places aroud the highest peak of the Alps with less people and more wildife.

Geography

The Monte Bianco Hiking Area is one of the more rich in terms of ice formations all over the Alps. For the Monte Rosa peaks and Matterhorn we are at the border of Italy and Switzerland and all the most famous peaks of the Alps are here. Mont Blanc intead is at the top north west border of Italy and the peak is shared with France. The paths are pretty well marked and in the Hikes described in this Trekking Alps website you’ll find also trekking in Valpelline and other smaller valleys, less known and maybe even more enjoyable for Trekking and Mountain Hiking. The Areas is north-west from Torino and the trip to this mountain area is from 1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours.

Wildlife

Wildlife in Monte Bianco Hiking Area is been moving away pretty much from this area as a lot of people are living their mountain holidays here. There is less space in the mountains for the animals than in other places and hiking areas of the Alps. Nevertheless all the typical alpine animals can be spotted but not so easily: Ibex, the Chamois, the Marmot, the Fox and the Eagle. The area is full of cable cars used also in summer for tourists and downhill bikers.

Monte Bianco Area Testimonials

    Aosta Valley Winter Hikes
    Trekking Alps is a very good service for hiking in the Italian Alps. Roberto was amazingly helpful in providing us with prompt replies to emails. He organized two incredibly beautiful hikes in the Aosta valley. The weather was perfect and we had a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend Roberto to anyone looking to hike in the Italian Alps!

    Fantastic Amenity Trek
    A must visit if you are in Italy. My friend and I went on this trek during 00-aosta-valley-trek-03673the 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.

    Trekking alps is a must do in northern Italy!
    I had one of the most amazing hikes I have ever done in my life and Roberto took beautiful pictures for me as well! I am so grateful for this company and couldn't be more satisfied with a trip to the alps. Roberto took care of seriously everything and it couldn't have been more stress free. Would recommend to anyone and everyone who loves mountains and hiking!!!!!!!

    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 🙂

    Absolutely wonderful 3-day Hiking tailored to suit your needs
    I was initially slightly worried about the hike. Friends & family asked if I was crazy to go on a 3-day hike in winter, let alone doing the hike with a complete stranger. After all how prepared would I be - being a girl who has barely done any hikes in asia or trained for the hike at all?  I soon realized I had nothing to worry about. Roberto was awesome, and his easy-going personality was a joy to be around. He was very encouraging and he tailored the trip with many day hikes according to my ability and the weather. We were rewarded with a great sunset on the second-evening, as well as great weather on the very last day where we got a stunning view of the peaks within the Gran Paradiso nature reserve.  I'd have to say it was money well-spent and I would definitely recommend Roberto to any others who would love to see the Italian alps in this authentic way!

    2 Days with Trekking Alps
    I really enjoyed my experience with Trekking Alps. Roberto was great at communication before the tour and being flexible to fit us into a tour that would match our availability and skill level. The hike was great, we had a great group and the scenery was amazing. We stayed in a hut which was really comfortable and had the most amazing view. I had never been to Turin or the Alps before and now I would highly recommend. On our hike we went to the peak of the mountain and we're surrounded by stunning views. Roberto was extremely friendly, supportive and professional during our hike and would highly recommend Trekking Alps and I hope to visit again!

    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.
