Accommodation

In the Turin Alps Mountain Hiking Area there is all kind of offer in this area except from the luxury hotel: bed and breakfast and shelters are pretty much for all tastes. Unguarded huts are nice but not so comfortable as for example the ones in Monte Bianco and Monte Rosa Hiking Area.

The good thing is that as they are pretty hidden and not used it is more probable to be alone to enjoy the wilderness. The people rarely spoke english but you’ll have the chance to see real and authentic mountain life untouched by tourism, specially outside Susa Valley.
