Spring Hiking in the Alps: Hiking in May

One of the most beautiful month for hiking in the Italian mountains!

Hiking in May in the Alps is not only possible. It is one of my favourite season. The snow up in the mountains makes the landscapes great and the forest start to be really green in this month. The flower start to be colorreful and the beauty of Nature is again back to us. Depending on the snow that have been fallen in winter we might use snowshoes or we can opt for a normal hiking. Usually we tent to not use snowshoes and enjoy the mid range mountain environment that in thi speriod are just incredible! Waterfalls are at its best and may hiking in the Alps is one of the best period to see wildlife at lower altitude. Ibex as chamois think the same as us and after a long winter, enjoy some warmer temperatures and fresh grass at lower altitude.

The whole area is the West Alps, and the starting point is usually the city of Turin, home of the Winter Olympic Games of 2006. The Alpine scenery in all the hiking area of the Italian Alps are just fabulous. So the question which is your favourite area it is impossible to answer. Italian Alps are so rich and beautiful that is impossible to choose. Every area has his own small features but the Alpine environment is the same

Spring Hikers Reviews

    Bullseye!!!
    Me and my friend went with Trekking Alps Guide Enrico Randazzo on a 3 day hike, it was an off season tour and for us who dont like ”crowds” it couldnt been better.  It’s offcourse many small things that make an experience great and it would be a to long rewiev to put all of them in here. The essentiels: Enrico was a super nice guy who just in a few moments found his way with us. That made it also easy for us to feel comfortable. The hike was challeging but the experience, the scenery and all that made the efforts easy. But most of all it was Enrico who added his nice personality, his knowledge and skills to the mix that made it a super trip. So to do some sort of summary; when u ewen have’nt finished the hike Your on and already planning the next it has been a great trip.Just do it 🙂

    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.

    Sensational wildlife spotting
    I did a 2 day hike with Enrico, to the Lanza valley. Enrico has excellent English, a great amount of knowledge of the area, and some cool stories to tell as you hike along. He took us to an unguarded hut in a remote location, which was very special! We saw chamois, ibex and even deer running down the cliffs - an awe inspiring sight! I booked late and Enrico went out of his way to fit me in to another group, of similar ability. His pickup instructions were very clear, all communication was very clear. Overall one of my best guided hiking experiences!

    Simply amazing
    Our mountain hikes with Trekking Alps were nothing short of extraordinary. We found Roberto to be an excellent guide and also a great conversationist. It was an incredibly authentic experience, always stopping for a local panino and coffee before setting off. For our two day-hikes, Roberto made a point of choosing the best possible destinations for the time of year. We cannot wait to book another adventure with Trekking Alps!
