Monviso Short Tour

The Monviso short tour is a beautiful trekking surrounds the majestic Monviso Peak(3841m), enormous king of western Alps in 4 days of amazing guided hiking. The daily hikes are not long and the gradient of altitude is not so high. The landscapes are very beautiful with huge meadows and rocky mountain all over. This hiking is perfect for those who never experienced long trekking.

Monviso is one of the most beautiful mountains in the Italian Alps and offers spectacular landscapes. In Summer(June-September) the shelters are open and every night we will be able to have an excellent hot meal and sweet sleep in a warm environment. The trekking is most suitable for animal sighting, like marmots and chamois. We will start our walk just on the font of Po river, the longest in Italy and we will cross the Viso Hole, an amazing tunnel of the XV century!

The Monviso is the king of the north of Italy and in this Monviso short tour, we’ll look at it from all the perspective. This hiking is settled in the southern Alps, in the Cuneo Province, particularly famous for its nice food and wine tradition. The Monviso short tour is not the wildest the hiking Trekking Alps is offering but for sure one of the most comfortable as the sleeping place are always lodges and not unguarded huts or tents.

Reviews for this Hike

    Memorable moments in the Alps
    My husband and I had the Monviso tour in Alp, guided by Roberto last August. For me it was really challenging since it was my first hiking. But by Roberto's patience and experience I was able to embrace the pain and difficulties. It was a great experience and we have plan to join Roberto for more tours in the future. During the trekking trip you might struggle with so much pain in your body, but my advise is don't get distracted by it so much and pay more attention to your surrounding and the beauty of the Alps than to your pain. Because in the end what you will remember is just the amazing sceneries and the team company!

    Wonderful Monviso and Gran Paradiso!!
    Great experience in wonderful places. Fantastic company! Roberto is an expert and very capable guide and he was able to pass down to us the love for those marvellous mountains. Special thanks to Elisabetta, precious on Gran Paradiso! I think it is a very good trekking to start to get acquainted with hikes in the Alps and to experience real mountain environment.

    Great Trekking in the Alps
    I have done 3 guided hikes with Roberto over the last few months. We went to Rocciamelone, Gran Paradiso and Monteviso in the Italian Alps. Roberto was a fantastic guide. Helpful, knowledgeable and above all fun. Whatever your ability or fitness he will design or suggest the hike best for you. I cannot recommend him enough. They were fantastic days in the mountains.

    Superb guided hiking in the Italian alps
    I had a really fantastic experience hiking with my husband and 15 year old daughter. We went on two tours, one for 4 days in Grand Paradiso and the second trip was for 3 days in Monviso. We encountered beautiful and sometimes dramatic mountain scenery along the way, went swimming in a mountain lake and enjoyed really great company in our small group of people. Roberto provided expert guidance, he loves the mountains and knows this region like his back pocket, it was wonderful to meet him.
