Our Testimonials

    Fantastic three days with Roberto
    My brother and I had a fantastic three days hiking with Roberto. We stayed at the lovely Gran Paradiso B&B in Jovencan and went hiking each day in the beautiful Valle d'Aosta. We managed to pack in a lot, sight seeing, views of the mountains and close encounters with the wild life. Roberto has enormous experience as a guide and boundless enthusiasm for nature. (He was also very helpful when it came to changing hotels in Turin at the last minute! We can't thank him enough for this.) Brilliant trip. Will definitely be going back.

    Highlight of our trip! Can’t wait to come back to the Alps
    We LOVED the two days spent with Roberto! He took us to the most beautiful hiking locations and was very flexible and knew the area well, so when it started raining and being overcast he still knew the best places to take us. Such a wonderful experience.

    Great Hiking in The Alps!!!
    Irina (gf) and I hiked with the fantastic guide Enrico for a few days! I think just about anyone would enjoy Enrico. He is a really good hiker, and knows the areas well. He lets you set the pace of the adventure while making suggestions, and he also has lots of interesting things to talk about on a variety of subjects, including local information.I wouldn't say it was a "must-see" experience, but the hiking, cheese, wine, hut, and overall alps experience was very awesome. I enjoyed this much more than for just the visuals. Mt Blanc is probably the superior visual, which can be looked up on google images, but this was the superior experience.The food was absolutely amazing. Hiking was amazing. Paragliding was amazing. ALPS = AMAZING. ENRICO = SUPER AMAZINGWord to the wise, the hiking was unlike any American hiking I've ever done. I do most of my hiking in tennis shoes or flip flops, even if it's a big 10 mile approach to a rock climbing destination. You can't get away with that on these types of trails. It's just a different type of hiking - more technical for sure. Proper grip shoes and hiking poles strongly recommended. I'm glad I heeded Enrico's advice and brought proper hiking shoes.

    Aosta Valley Winter Hikes
    Trekking Alps is a very good service for hiking in the Italian Alps. Roberto was amazingly helpful in providing us with prompt replies to emails. He organized two incredibly beautiful hikes in the Aosta valley. The weather was perfect and we had a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend Roberto to anyone looking to hike in the Italian Alps!

    2 days in Aosta Valley
    Roberto took us on an unforgettable trek in the alps. Everything was wonderfully planned and organized, the trek was amazing and Roberto made it extra fun.We’ve been hiking in Aosta Valley with view of Mont Blanc(Monte Bianco). Highly recommended!

    Fantastic Amenity Trek
    A must visit if you are in Italy. My friend and I went on this trek during 00-aosta-valley-trek-03673the end of October and must say the colors of autumn were extraordinary. Roberto is an excellent guide who knows his stuff. After half way, the path of our trek became difficult and Roberto gave a motivational speech to not stop until the end (which was not possible by me and had to take a couple of short breaks in between). When we finally reached the destination the view was breathtaking and we were accompanied by 4 other locals who were on a vacation. The best part was they were as young as 65 years old (2 and a half times my age) which made me look like a 100 year old man. At night Roberto cooked us dinner and we played cards in an old hut on top of the mountains. Overall is was an amazing experience I would definitely go for another trek with Roberto in the near future. Thank you Roberto.
