Mont Avic Natural Park Trekking Ring

Mont Avic is a hidden gem of the Alps. Even if we did this hike in August which is supposedly the very high season in this Mont Avic Hiking Trek, we meet very few hikers. The trek is a wonderful medium difficulty hike and has several options to make it more challenging or easier. The highlights of the area are probably the many glaciar lakes. The area is north exposed and the glaciers ere here only few centuries ago. They left an amazing amount of beautiful lakes all over the places. There are also few 3000 meters peak and the one we climbed is the Ponton Peak in between Cogne valley and Gran Paradiso National Park, and Champorcher Valley in Mont Avic Natural Park. The company was simply perfect and the we almost have a swim in every day of our hiking trip. Also waterfalls are pretty spectacular and the shelters that host us was very nice and cozy. In terms of wilderness we meet herds of Chamois, few marmots and a nice ermine in the rocks. The terrain of the hike is very different: we started our trekking in the forest to move in the alpine grassland and till the rocks of the higher upland. In the higher passes and in the Ponton Peak we could also admire the spectacular views over the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa glaciers. Weather was perfect for our hike. This is one of the many possible fantastic hiking holidays you can get in the magical environment of the Italian Alps.
