Hiking in the Alps in Autumn - October and November

The infinite shades of colours of the west Alps near Turin!

Autumn mountain hiking is maybe the most underevalued period to go hiking. It is true that weather forecast can change a lot from year to year. But autumn in north west of Italy can be just fabulous. Hiking in autumn can be as nice as in summer but with a great variety of colors: yellow and red trees are welcoming us in the forests and hiking in low altitude can be an amazing experience. Depending on the weather of every year we can still trek in high altitude without using the snowshoes. Days are shorter especially in late November but you will enjoy the Italian Alps in an exclusive way as not many people know that trekking in that period is lovely. The weather change quite a lot the possible hikes and a degree of flexibility in planning the hike have to be taken into account. But still there are lots of huts and shelters which are perfect for our autumn hiking in the Alps and you will have the chance to make among the best landscapes pictures of the year. Come hiking in autumn in Italy and you will discover why Trekking Alps is guiding in the mountains all year long!

Our Autumn Hikes in the Italian Alps

There are few good reasons why hiking in the Alps in Autumn: Hiking Alps in Autumn is a great opportunity!  The Fall months can be the best of the year for hiking if you are lucky. Why? For these reasons:

  • Less People: You’ll enjoy incredibly beautiful places by yourself
  • Amazing Colours: There are no doubts the best variety fo colours of Nature is now!

October can be still a bit like Summer if there was no early snow and is not so rare to be able to hike up the mountains till 3000 meters.

    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!

    2 days in Aosta Valley
    Roberto took us on an unforgettable trek in the alps. Everything was wonderfully planned and organized, the trek was amazing and Roberto made it extra fun.We’ve been hiking in Aosta Valley with view of Mont Blanc(Monte Bianco). Highly recommended!

    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.

    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!!!

    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 🙂

    Alps Trekking from Salbertrand to Pramand Fort
    It was a very pleasant experience hiking through the alps getting deeper and deeper into the mountains. We walked 3 hours in a very nice path, filled with snow, where we got to see falcons, and chamois (goat-antelope) walking through the pine trees, with the most beautiful peaks as a background. We were a group of 9, and we all enjoyed the hike very much, but also de local liqueurs degustation at the end.- Very professional guide - Affordable price - Totally flexible to suit your group - 100% recommended

    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!
