Susa, Chisone and Lanzo Valleys – Alps Near Turin

Near the city of Turin there are many valleys with different souls which in this section we describe as Turin Alps Hiking Area. Susa valley is probably the most popular valley if you want to do trekking near Torino.

Susa Valley is also the most populated valley in the mountain area which means less wilderness but also more history and culture, while in Lanzo Valleys and Chisone Valley you’ll have really the chance to live the mountains on your own. These trekking area near Turin are not mass market yet and the locals have not the time and the possibility to “invade” the mountain region as the paths are thousands among hundreds of small valleys to explore.

The consequence is that you can live the mountain on your own and consequently living a very special trekking experience. In the Turin Alps Hiking Area there are also different regional and natural parks. Orsiera Rocciavrè Natural park is in part of this Area with its wildlife and it’s beautiful mid mountain environment. The paths also can be very different. If in the Orsiera Rocciavrè Park they are very well marked and often pretty good, in other regions the trekking paths are really wild and especially in June-July the vegetation can be pretty strong, hiding them.

Accommodation

In the Turin Alps Hiking Area there is all kind of offer in this area except from the luxury hotel: bed and breakfast and shelters are pretty much for all tastes. Unguarded huts are nice but not so comfortable as for example the ones in Monte Bianco and Monte Rosa Hiking Area. The good thing is that as they are pretty hidden and not used it is more probable to be alone to enjoy the wilderness. The people rarely spoke english but you’ll have the chance to see real and authentic mountain life untouched by tourism, specially outside Susa Valley.

Turin Alps Area Testimonials

    Wonderful Day Hike from Torino!!
    It was the best day during my last trip to Torino! I was traveling by myself and didn’t really plan ahead, the sun came out after a few days of rain and I was thinking “Why not go on a hike?” So I jumped in front of the computer and luckily found Roberto’s website. All of the information on the website is well organised and with great testimonial, in English! This is it! Roberto responded to my email inquiry very efficiently, discussing my expectation, hiking experience and what kind of gear I have. Since I did not bring any gear with me, the next day he came prepared with all the hiking essentials I will need for the day hike! We hiked on the trails close to Bovile. He picked a trail that is not too challenging for a beginner like me, with stunning views as rewards!!! The entire experience was great and I have been inspired to hike almost every weekend since I came back to the Bay Area! Thank you Roberto! I still keep in mind your hiking tips ” Don’t stop until the end” every time I am on the trail exploring new places 🙂Highly recommending Roberto to anyone who is looking for an experienced and fun mountain guide when planning your visit in Torino!

    Great guide of the Italian Alps
    Roberto is extremely quick to respond to requests and very amenable to any adjustments. Well-spoken, funny and knowledgeable, Roberto is a great guide who I would to recommend to anyone!
    Lars -Norway
    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!!!

    A Clever inspiring Guided Journey
    Once in a while, you cross paths with people that alter your life, and Roberto is one of these. Besides being an experienced guide with a logical progression of inspiring and challenging hikes, he was a blast, and a perfect match to my husband. The two of them had me laughing often. He is one of Italy’s secrets, and reminds me of another Roberto… Roberto Tomba, an Italian Olympic skier. BUT, when guide Roberto stops, he does so to protect and provide for those he is guiding. When we were crossing a snow bank, my hands started screaming in pain. Immediately, he whipped off his gloves and let me wear them until I could actually move my fingers again. This was an Olympic move, making him my Italian hero. I can’t wait for our next adventure with him.

    Amazing Mountain Trekking
    I was joining the Lanzo valley hiking trip with Trekking Alps. It was one of the best mountains and peaks I’ve seen so far. The scenary is amazing and during our trek we saw also serveral animals including ibex 😀 Roberto was a super cool guide! He took really good care of us and eventhough I went there alone and join the trek with others, we were having so much fun. I really recommend it to anyone who want to expereince Italian Alps.
    Nics – Thailand
    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!!!!!!!

    Fantastic Experience in the Italian Alps!
    Roberto guided my wife and me for four fantastic days in June. We had some unusual requests and he was able to accomodate them perfectly. His knowledge of the area, his pleasant personality, kindness and sense of humor made the time memorable beyond words. His choice of routes was amazing and he went out of his way to share the local history and culture with us. He gave us several choices for accomodations and then met our requests in a way that exceeded our expectations. He even took us to a local sporting goods shop (Ferrino Store in Torino) so my wife could be fitted for the first pair of hiking boots (branded AKU) that actually fit her. She would wear them to bed if she could. He also turned out to be a huge NBA fan and we had several long discussions about basketball as we labored up the more strenous terrain. I would recommend Roberto to experts and beginners alike as he will undoubetdly deliver a great trip.

    An amazing family hike with two children
    My family and I spent 3 days hiking with Trekking Alps and Roberto in July 2016. Based on our preferences and feedback Roberto planned an amazing trip for us which was the highlight of our time in Italy. He was wonderful with our two children, ages 8 and 9 years old. I highly recommend Trekking Alps and would book again without hesitation.
    Eric - USA
    Amazing and challenging first hike
    I travelled with Trekking Alps in July 2016 with a team of 35 people from work for charity. Roberto was the perfect guide. I had never trekked before and he was brilliant, very encouraging and extremely patient. Even though I was quite slow him and his team were very patient with me and kept me going. It was tough but because of their encouragement its given me a new found love for trekking and look forward to doing it again.

    Outstanding hike, very well organized
    Trekking Alps helped us organise and lead a work sponsored hike for a large 30+ group of varying abilities from beginner to advanced and was fantastic. Roberto's knowledge of the area and ideas for setting the hike at the right challenge was perfect, and he had a really great attitude to guiding us, with infinite patience for those who wanted to take their time, as well as those wanting more of a challenge. No small task!Even in stormy weather we all had a brilliant experience walking in the Italian Alps and the trip will be great memory for us to have and talk about for a long time. Thank you!
