Summer Hiking in the Alps: Hiking in August

Escape the unpleasant hot of the cities and reach back the spring up in the Alps!

Hiking in August have some big plus and some features that you have to consider before to start. August is when, in Italy and not only, most of people are on holidays. That means that is the month where you will find more people hiking in the Alps. The reason why August is so busy is also because the mountains are at its best. All the passes are snow free and you can enjoy the hiking and the mountaineering season without thinking about snow. For this reason it is important to choose an area that is not very popular to enjoy mountain in silence and intimacy. For this reason we usually avoid the famous area of Monte Bianco and Gran Paradiso. Just ask us and we will suggest you the best area where to go. Also using unguarded huts hiking in August is not particularly smart as they are often full. Even the hotel in some area do not accept single day booking, so you have to plan your hiking holidays carefully.

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

Summer Hikers Reviews

    Great hike with a great guide
    We had such a great time hiking in the Aosta Valley with Roberto! The weather and season were ideal, and the hike was perfect for us - challenging enough to feel like a victory but not too difficult or exhausting. Roberto was very knowledgeable and was a lot of fun to hike with. It was especially helpful that he drove us out to the mountains from Torino. I would highly recommend to anyone to book Roberto to explore the Alps!

    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.

    Great short break in the Alps
    We were very lucky to find Roberto to take us round Gran Paradiso National Park. We were training for Kilimanjaro and although the altitude was limited by snow cover, the steep hiking was great practice which we just can't get in the UK. Roberto was really friendly and knowledgeable and gave us the opportunity to try some great local cheeses whilst staying in surprisingly sophisticated and comfortable huts. We would definitely travel with Roberto again and are looking forward to exploring more of the Italian Alps.

    Wonderful trip to Fenis Aosta Valley!
    It was a wonderful two days hiking in Aosta Valley, don't need to mention the beautiful snow mountains. Enrico is a great guide, he prepared everything we need for the trip. The facility in the mountain hut was luxury! There is light, gas, and even heat! I will come back to Alps again!

    Excellent one-day trek with Enrico!
    Extremely happy with my Trekking Alps experience!!! Booked one-day trek with Enrico and initial communication before I arrived in Italy was excellent. Enrico did a great job of understanding my athletic ability, explaining the equipment needed and coordinating a pick up point. On the day, he picked me and another couple up from our hotels in Turin and we drove an hour north of Turin to a small village called Viu. There we bought food for our break- Enrico translated for us in the butcher shop and we got some lovely venison sausage and cheeses made in the village as well as bread. Then we drove about another 15 minutes up the mountain and started off on the hike. At first the walk was easy on a gravel path but after about one mile, the fun kicked in and we started up the steep gradient. Enrico did a very impressive job of guiding us as well as explaining the geography, local flora and fauna and thoroughly answering every question we had. The scenery was breathtaking throughout: waterfalls, valleys, views of adjacent ranges and lakes. Although the hike was extremely challenging (and I consider myself to be pretty fit), it was exhilarating and a once in a lifetime experience. Worth every penny. Enrico's knowledge of the terrain combined with his contagious passion for nature and easy going manner made the trip that much more enjoyable. After our descent and ride back to Viu, Enrico introduced me to a local Piedmonte liquor called Genepy Granger as I'd asked him for a recommendation for a good grappa. It was super strong and very good! All in all, a very enjoyable day. If you're thinking of booking a hike in the Piedmonte region, I would not hesitate to recommend Trekking-Alps. They did a fantastic job! Thanks Enrico.
