Wild environment, cold temperatures and white landscapes. Live the mountains when the Nature is more extreme!

Winter Alps hiking in Italy is not your typical easy holiday. If you are looking for winter hiking in Europe with is the right place to come. The best hikes for your winter holidays are here! Winter can be harsh, dark, freezing. In a word: uncomfortable. Nonetheless the Alps in winter are enchanting and lovely and probably offer the best views and landscapes of the year. Mountain is an harsh environment generally speaking: it is tiring to move, can be dangerous and you are under the nature law, often outside the comfort zone. But this is why you feel so alive when you are hiking in the Alps mountains: you feel that life is not taken for granted. In the winter mountain hiking this is even more true: you can feel the adventure even more than in the other seasons. When the snow is thick, walking and hiking is really tiring and sometimes to reach the target becomes impossible. To organize an hut to hut for many days with snowshoes is quite hard and it can be arranged just for really adventurous and bold people. In the Alps in Italy, mountain passes are covered by snow and it is very hard to arrange a continuous few days hike, sleeping in the mountains. Nevertheless it is also possible to arrange easy winter hiking in this corner of Europe, sleeping in bed and breakfast or in easy to reach shelter open all year round. If you want to experience the harshness of the mountains, an winter hike in Italy will be just unforgettable. If you pass by Europe in Winter, do not miss hiking and snowshoeing in the Italian Alps!

    AMAZING weekend away with Roberto and Elisabetta
    The first time I went hiking with Roberto 2 years ago I was so impressed, I knew I would be back again. So here I am! This time I shared a long weekend with 9 friends, Roberto and Elisabetta. They are now my special people I can call family ! Roberto went to extreme lengths to make our trip incredibly fun and showed us a side of Italy only locals would know about. I cannot thank him enough for the time he invested to think about all the small details. We were mostly vegetarians and once again the food was fantastic. For Roberto, Trekking Alps is not just a job, he is truly passionate about the mountains which subsequently means he knows the BEST spots to go hiking. He is an excellent mountain guide, and together him and Elisabetta make a great team. I am already thinking about trip number 3!Definitely a trip to remember with endless amounts of laughter!!!Grazie mille per il miglior viaggio 🙂

    Day Hike in Aosta
    Roberto was an excellent guide who was easily contactable, knew the area well and helped us to select a day hike suitable for our capabilities. He also provided us with hiking boots and trekking poles and helped us in areas where we struggled. It was a perfect day for a hike and I wish I've booked a longer tour! Do not visit Turin without visiting the Alps! 🙂

    Awesome experience trekking the Susa Valley!
    Earlier this year we met Roberto and he took us snowshoeing through the Susa valley and it was an awesome experience that everyone should do. Roberto was a patient and accommodating guide. He had all the extra gear we needed for the trek, and we weren't left short missing out on anything. We came from Milan in the day and it worked perfectly. The sights were beautiful and it was all worthwhile! Thank you Roberto!

    Breathtaking Alpine Trek!
    Prior to my arrival in Italy, Roberto was very responsive, professional and helpful in helping me plan my snowshoe adventure. Our day trip was wonderful! He is knowledgeable, sincere, and a pleasure to travel with. He was able to adjust the hike to match my fitness level. The pictures he took and sent were a great keepsake. We even stopped in a nearby village to take in some local history, which I absolutely loved! I most certainly would recommend Trekking Alps, and definitely plan on returning for another adventure soon!

    Enchanting, exhilarating and memories of a lifetime
    My partner and I braved the chilly Italian alps with Roberto in Jan this year and were absolutely enthralled with the magnificent hike through pristine wilderness and breathtaking scenery. There are no words to describe making it to the top of that mountain! We can't speak highly enough of Roberto's professionalism, passion and knowledge, not to mention the fact he's a top guy who is very easy to spend time around. The accommodation we stayed in was basic but very cozy (And warm at -15 temps very chilly for tropical acclimatized aussies!). Would recommend this trip it was the stand out of our whole holiday.

    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!
    Lorenzo - Italy
    Overnight Hike in Gran Paradiso
    Trekking Alps is the best service for any guided hike or tour of the Italian Alps. It started with Roberto's prompt and attentive email responses. He accommodated our dates and times and helped us choose the best type of hike for us. Before we left the States for Europe all the major details had been discussed and we knew exactly what we needed to bring with us. Trekking Alps guide Enrico pick us up from our Turin hotel, let us rent his own packs and sleeping bags, helped us purchase local meats and cheeses for the hike, planned the route, and rented the hut for us. Enrico's English is perfect, and his knowledge of all things Italy, Alps, and hiking is even better. We learned so much from him. With Enrico we hike through small abandoned villages, crossed avalanche drifts, did some night hiking, and saw incredible views of nature. I highly recommend Enrico and Trekking Alps. If you love nature and want to experience something most tourists never do, then this is the best way to do it. Just be honest about your hiking experience and level and Trekking Alps will tailor a hike just for you.

    Snowshoeing in the Italian Alps!
    Roberto was very helpful in organizing all aspects of the 2 day hike near Torino. He made organizing transportation and equipment very easy. Easily one of the best guides I have had the please to hike with. The hike was full of snow and was an exhausting yet amazing experience! The evening spent in the cabin was also enjoyable! Roberto came prepared with entertainment and food! An unforgettable couple of days. 100% would recommend Roberto to anyone looking to hike in the Italian Alps!

    Amazing week end in Gran Paradiso!!
    Myself and 2 others flew from London to Milan and then got a very quick train journey to Turin (the fast trains are only 1 hour). When we met Roberto he was so well equipped, he had everything we had forgotten or just better equipment for us to use in his car which came in very handy! When we got to the shelter on Saturday we had some very tasty food and even improvised on some mulled wine! 🙂 We are vegetarians but that really was no problem. For the trek itself, we had AMAZING views. We literally caught the last few days of autumn, so it was very pretty with orange leaves and a bit of snow. We literally couldn’t have asked for better weather. Whether you are experienced or not, I would definitely recommend going with Roberto. He made sure everyone had a fun time and is chilled out. It’s not often you get to go hiking with a local that knows the area really very. I’m now thinking of going back in Summer for part2. Oh and I should mention we were lucky enough to see 2 Vultures and some falcons, along with plenty of Ibexes and Chamois 😀 100% recommend hiking with Roberto, you will have a great time!!!!

    Roberto fulfill our expectations way beyond
    Roberto assist us with general information about Italy before hiking, guide us to Robinet Peak with professional attitude, safety caution and great atmosphere. We had great time in this hiking tour of the Alps and hopefully we'll have the chance to come back again. This was a real adventure!
