Rocciamelone Peak Trekking

This trekking is meant for anybody who wants to experience a real mountain environment and reaching an unforgettable Rocciamelone peak.
DISPLAY FULL DESCRIPTION
The trekking is developed near Turin in the north of Italy and it covers a very beautiful wild area.

Rocciamelone peak is easy to reach from Susa valley but coming from the north as in this trekking is by far more exciting. After several days hiking in the marvelous wild Lanzo valleys we will live probably the highlight of the hike reaching Rocciamelone Peak(3538 m): its point shape and being much higher than the near mountains, brought to think in the medieval ages by local people that Rocciamelone was the highest peak of Europe. In reaching the Rocciamelone peak from the north side, we will also experience the tiny glacier crossing. The glacier is very small and it is not required to bring any mountain equipment in order to overcome it.

Autentic Adventure in the Italian Alps: Explore the Wild!

This is certainly not true but still to reach the peak is a marvelous experience. Especially if you decide to sleep at the top, at Refuge Santa Maria, a small wooden shelter on the top of the world. Coming back from another route ensure to see different environments and nature. In terms of bringing kids, is not exactly the best hike as there is quite a few dangerous spots where experience and "cold blood" is required.

Reviews for this Hike

    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.

    Simply Beautiful
    The two day hike of Rocciamelone was one of the most spectacular experiences I've ever had. I heard about Trekking Alps and Roberto from a friend who had gone on a hike with him and decided that this might be a good way to escape the heat of summer and satisfy my longing for great alpine scenery. The hike was relatively short but intense, and I loved every minute of it. We stayed at a lodge on the peak of the mountain and watched the sunset and sunrise at 3500m. The views were unbelievably breathtaking! Roberto is not only a fantastic and accommodating guide but also an awesome guy to hike with. I would definitely recommend him if you are looking for an unforgettable adventure!! I only wish I could go again!

    Great hike, great guide!
    Roberto is fun, warm and he adapts quite quickly to the needs of his clients. We went on a five days trek with this guy here and he took us to gorgeous places and had the best time ever. I would definitely go with him again :).

    Excellent guide and excellent mountains
    Roberto did an excellent job leading a five day trek and accommodating four people from three different countries with a wide range of ages. He was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and passionate about the mountains. A great trip leader and companion. I recommend him highly!
