Mountain Hiking in Winter - December, January, February and March

Wild environment, cold temperatures and white landscapes. Live the Alps when the Nature is more extreme!

Winter Mountain hiking in Italy is not your typical easy holiday. Winter can be harsh, dark, freezing. In a word: uncomfortable. Nonetheless the Alps in winter are enchanting and lovely and probably offer the best views and landscapes of the year. Mountain is an harsh environment generally speaking: it is tiring to move, can be dangerous and you are under the nature law, often outside the comfort zone. But this is why you feel so alive when hiking in the mountains: you feel that life is not taken for granted. In the winter mountain hiking this is even more true: you can feel the adventure even more than in the other seasons. When the snow is thick, walking and hiking is really tiring and sometimes to reach the target becomes impossible. To organize an hut to hut for many days with snowshoes is quite hard and it can be arranged just for really adventurous and bold people. In the Alps in Italy, mountain passes are covered by snow and it is very hard to arrange a continuous few days hike, sleeping in the mountains. Nevertheless it is also possible to arrange easy winter mountain hiking, sleeping in bed and breakfast or in easy to reach shelter open all year round. If you want to experience the harshness of the mountains, an winter hike in Italy will be just unforgettable.

    Enchanting, exhilarating and memories of a lifetime
    My partner and I braved the chilly Italian alps with Roberto in Jan this year and were absolutely enthralled with the magnificent hike through pristine wilderness and breathtaking scenery. There are no words to describe making it to the top of that mountain! We can't speak highly enough of Roberto's professionalism, passion and knowledge, not to mention the fact he's a top guy who is very easy to spend time around. The accommodation we stayed in was basic but very cozy (And warm at -15 temps very chilly for tropical acclimatized aussies!). Would recommend this trip it was the stand out of our whole holiday.

    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!
    Lorenzo
    Overnight Hike in Gran Paradiso
    Trekking Alps is the best service for any guided hike or tour of the Italian Alps. It started with Roberto's prompt and attentive email responses. He accommodated our dates and times and helped us choose the best type of hike for us. Before we left the States for Europe all the major details had been discussed and we knew exactly what we needed to bring with us. Trekking Alps guide Enrico pick us up from our Turin hotel, let us rent his own packs and sleeping bags, helped us purchase local meats and cheeses for the hike, planned the route, and rented the hut for us. Enrico's English is perfect, and his knowledge of all things Italy, Alps, and hiking is even better. We learned so much from him. With Enrico we hike through small abandoned villages, crossed avalanche drifts, did some night hiking, and saw incredible views of nature. I highly recommend Enrico and Trekking Alps. If you love nature and want to experience something most tourists never do, then this is the best way to do it. Just be honest about your hiking experience and level and Trekking Alps will tailor a hike just for you.

    Snowshoeing in the Italian Alps!
    Roberto was very helpful in organizing all aspects of the 2 day hike near Torino. He made organizing transportation and equipment very easy. Easily one of the best guides I have had the please to hike with. The hike was full of snow and was an exhausting yet amazing experience! The evening spent in the cabin was also enjoyable! Roberto came prepared with entertainment and food! An unforgettable couple of days. 100% would recommend Roberto to anyone looking to hike in the Italian Alps!

    Amazing week end in Gran Paradiso!!
    Myself and 2 others flew from London to Milan and then got a very quick train journey to Turin (the fast trains are only 1 hour). When we met Roberto he was so well equipped, he had everything we had forgotten or just better equipment for us to use in his car which came in very handy! When we got to the shelter on Saturday we had some very tasty food and even improvised on some mulled wine! 🙂 We are vegetarians but that really was no problem. For the trek itself, we had AMAZING views. We literally caught the last few days of autumn, so it was very pretty with orange leaves and a bit of snow. We literally couldn’t have asked for better weather. Whether you are experienced or not, I would definitely recommend going with Roberto. He made sure everyone had a fun time and is chilled out. It’s not often you get to go hiking with a local that knows the area really very. I’m now thinking of going back in Summer for part2. Oh and I should mention we were lucky enough to see 2 Vultures and some falcons, along with plenty of Ibexes and Chamois 😀 100% recommend hiking with Roberto, you will have a great time!!!!

    Roberto fulfill our expectations way beyond
    Roberto assist us with general information about Italy before hiking, guide us to Robinet Peak with professional attitude, safety caution and great atmosphere. We had great time in this hiking tour of the Alps and hopefully we'll have the chance to come back again. This was a real adventure!

    An amazing experience in the Alps with the most breathtaking views!
    My weekend snowshoeing in the Alps with our guide Roberto exceeded my expectations! I had been studying abroad in Europe for a couple weeks and wanted to plan a weekend where I could explore the outdoors with my friends--this adventure was everything I was looking for and more! I never would have thought that I'd be able to go hike in the Italian Alps being as unprepared as I was (given that I had no proper gear, supplies, etc.). But Roberto provided us with hiking boots, snow shoes, sticks, sleeping bags, etc. and anything that we didn't have on us to make sure we had all that we needed for an enjoyable experience. He even made a great dinner for us for our night in the cabin! And the hike was absolutely beautiful! Every view was stunning and we were able to make it up to the peak. Roberto even made sure to help document the experience for us, taking pictures of us as we hiked up and down the mountain. I can honestly say that this was one of the greatest and most unique experiences I've ever had and will be the most memorable experience of my semester abroad. Roberto was also so enthusiastic, positive, personable, and just fun to talk to that I highly recommend everyone to sign up for a trip with him! Thank you so much Roberto!

    Wonderful Gran Paradiso Winter Hike
    Snowshoeing and hiking with Roberto as our guide was hands down one of the most amazing adventures I have ever been on. We skyped with him about a week before our trip and he made sure we had everything we needed in addition to helping us plan our trip. My friends and I were looking for a trip to get outside and explore Italy even more and this trip was perfect for that--the mountains were breathtaking and with virtually no other people there, we felt like we saw the best of everything. The snowshoeing itself was so thrilling and challenging, making the experience all the more rewarding and unforgettable. Roberto himself was an awesome and super friendly guide with so many experiences and stories to share--I highly recommend!

    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!

    Breathtaking and thrilling!
    There was no better way to bring in the new year than with a trek through the Italian Alps. Roberto could not have been better. We became fast friends, chatting on the drive up to the mountain and along the way as he encouraged us to reach the top. He loves the mountains deeply and even though this must have been his thousandth trek, he stopped often to admire the beauty and vastness. His love for the hills inspired us to do the same, really taking in their grandeur and appreciating this incredible day. We would highly recommend any trek with Roberto.
