Mountain Hiking in Spring - April and May

The miracle of Nature in the lovely environment of the Italian Alps

Spring mountain hiking is like living a dream. The power of Nature explodes again after the long months of winter. And slowly, starting from the low altitudes, rises till the high peaks of the mountains where the flower will grow only in late summer. Spring mountain hiking is a period which changes quite a lot from year to year depending on how much snow have fallen in the winter and which are the temperatures in April/June period. Sometimes Spring can be considered already mid March, sometimes it starts only at the end of April. In any case even in this season, you will definitely find a fantastic environment where to spend your hiking holidays. Even in the cities you will not find hot temperatures and a nice breeze is usually blowing. Sometimes this season can be rainy so it is very useful to have a day of flexibility when starting the hike so that it is maybe possible to start during a sunny day.  Italy in general is just perfect to visit. The countryside of Piedmont with its vineyards and wheat fields and same city Turin are definitely at its best. And the mountains already offer a splendid opportunity to live the wild side of Italy. In enjoying a spring mountain hiking you will avoid mass tourists and you will be amazed by the enchanting power of Nature in the Italian Alps.

    Sensational wildlife spotting
    I did a 2 day hike with Enrico, to the Lanza valley. Enrico has excellent English, a great amount of knowledge of the area, and some cool stories to tell as you hike along. He took us to an unguarded hut in a remote location, which was very special! We saw chamois, ibex and even deer running down the cliffs - an awe inspiring sight! I booked late and Enrico went out of his way to fit me in to another group, of similar ability. His pickup instructions were very clear, all communication was very clear. Overall one of my best guided hiking experiences!

    Simply amazing
    Our mountain hikes with Trekking Alps were nothing short of extraordinary. We found Roberto to be an excellent guide and also a great conversationist. It was an incredibly authentic experience, always stopping for a local panino and coffee before setting off. For our two day-hikes, Roberto made a point of choosing the best possible destinations for the time of year. We cannot wait to book another adventure with Trekking Alps!

    Excellent one-day trek with Enrico!
    Extremely happy with my Trekking Alps experience!!! Booked one-day trek with Enrico and initial communication before I arrived in Italy was excellent. Enrico did a great job of understanding my athletic ability, explaining the equipment needed and coordinating a pick up point. On the day, he picked me and another couple up from our hotels in Turin and we drove an hour north of Turin to a small village called Viu. There we bought food for our break- Enrico translated for us in the butcher shop and we got some lovely venison sausage and cheeses made in the village as well as bread. Then we drove about another 15 minutes up the mountain and started off on the hike. At first the walk was easy on a gravel path but after about one mile, the fun kicked in and we started up the steep gradient. Enrico did a very impressive job of guiding us as well as explaining the geography, local flora and fauna and thoroughly answering every question we had. The scenery was breathtaking throughout: waterfalls, valleys, views of adjacent ranges and lakes. Although the hike was extremely challenging (and I consider myself to be pretty fit), it was exhilarating and a once in a lifetime experience. Worth every penny. Enrico's knowledge of the terrain combined with his contagious passion for nature and easy going manner made the trip that much more enjoyable. After our descent and ride back to Viu, Enrico introduced me to a local Piedmonte liquor called Genepy Granger as I'd asked him for a recommendation for a good grappa. It was super strong and very good! All in all, a very enjoyable day. If you're thinking of booking a hike in the Piedmonte region, I would not hesitate to recommend Trekking-Alps. They did a fantastic job! Thanks Enrico.

    Amazing trip to Lanzo Valley
    Roberto is familiar with the landscape and hike at a comfortable pace. He even prepared extra gears for me after checking out the weather on the morning itself. The scenery around Lanzo Valley is breathtaking. Look for Roberto if you are keen to explore. You are in good hands with him around.

    Excellent 2 days walking in Mt.Robeinet
    Roberto was an excellent guide for a couple days hiking near Turino (specially at Mt Robinet). From the initial engagement through to arriving in Turino, Roberto was very helpful and excellent replies on email/whatsapp - ensuring that we had everyting we needed for the tour. During the guided hike, Roberto is an extrememly personalble guy. So friendly, and was very knowledgeable on the local area, and his passion for the outdoors was infectious! i would definitely recommend Roberto and Trekking Alps again.

    One of Best Experiences of my Life
    Amazing. Elisabetta picked us in the train station in Torino and we drove to meet Roberto and another hiker. Roberto had all the extra gear we needed for the trip. We had an amazing hike to see Monte Viso. The view was breathtaking. We then continued to hike down and just enjoy all the weather and beautiful countryland. Roberto and Betta are very sweet and great people to spend a day with. Hope to do it again soon.

    Amazing experience!!
    Roberto is THE best out there. I had an amazing time trekking the Alps with him. Although weather didn't cooperate with us on the first day, Roberto knew how to handle the cards we were dealt and I 100% trusted his judgement and knowledge. If you're considering this trek, I definitely recommend doing it with Roberto. He knew the best treks and place where mountain hiking. We've been in Gran Paradiso National park hiking and it was a terrific trek!

    Unforgettable memories!!
    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.

    Cool Experience!
    Great experience! Roberto (the local guide) planned a perfect one-day hike near Turin. He managed all issues in an excellent manner: target according to my availability, the weather, timing, etc. The views from the peak were astonishing. He transmitted not only his knowledge about landscapes, peaks and mountain ranges, but also his passion about history, flora and fauna. Roberto is an awesome guide! It was definitely an amazing time. I highly recommend everyone to sign up a trek with him!

    An experience to remember!
    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!
