Susa Valley Ring Trek

This trek is set in Susa Valley, the valley that connect better France and Italy. For this reason the Valley
DISPLAY FULL DESCRIPTION
is full of history: the war between Napoleon and Savoia, between France and Italy left an amazing heritage up in the mountains. And remember us how important is peace. It is incredible to think that cousins like French and Italians were fighting in the extreme conditions of the mountains up there. This trekking has a strong historical soul as this area is been always part of history. We will be able to visit the Roman city of Susa which was the main city of the area during the Roman Empire, the beautiful Exilles fort and we will cross the Thullie Hole, a unique and amazing tunnel made by one man in the XV century. The tunnel is almost 600m long and Colombano Romean caved it with a pickaxe in 7 long years in order to let the water cross the mountain. This water still feeds several communities and villages near Chiomonte. Even for people not particularly interested in history, the trekking is very beautiful. The Alps here are fabulous and there is a lot of wildlife. The area of the hike, located pretty near Turin, has amazing spots and fantastic landscapes.

Susa Valley: between Trenches Hannibal and Nature

Susa Valley is full of beautiful mountain lakes where the fearless people can enjoy an icy swim, green hills and animal sighting are insurance of success. We will sleep for one night in an unguarded hut and the rest of the nights on the refuges but is possible to re-arrange the accommodation of this beautiful hike in Susa Valley depening on your wishes. During the trekking, we will have magnificent views of Rocciamelone and we will climb the Giusalet (3313m) Peak. Susa Valley Ring Trek is an excellent mixture of sport, nature, culture and excellent food!

Reviews for this Hike

    Fantastic Experience in the Italian Alps!
    Roberto guided my wife and me for four fantastic days in June. We had some unusual requests and he was able to accomodate them perfectly. His knowledge of the area, his pleasant personality, kindness and sense of humor made the time memorable beyond words. His choice of routes was amazing and he went out of his way to share the local history and culture with us. He gave us several choices for accomodations and then met our requests in a way that exceeded our expectations. He even took us to a local sporting goods shop (Ferrino Store in Torino) so my wife could be fitted for the first pair of hiking boots (branded AKU) that actually fit her. She would wear them to bed if she could. He also turned out to be a huge NBA fan and we had several long discussions about basketball as we labored up the more strenous terrain. I would recommend Roberto to experts and beginners alike as he will undoubetdly deliver a great trip.
