Winter Hiking in the Alps: Hiking in December

The First Month of Winter, Welcome Back Snow!

Hiking in December in the Alps can very rewarding. Snowshoes will most probably be our way to hiking the alps in December because usually it means hiking in the snow. In some special years there is not much snow but usually December hikes are basically winter hikes. This means freezing temperatures, few paths available and white landscapes. Winter hiking can be pretty hard and the Inn to Inn tour are the best for this period. You spend a bit more but having access to light, warm water and a comfortable bed in this season is more important than in other season. The weeks between Christmas and 31st of December can be more crowded while the rest of December is usually very uncrowded all over the Italian Alps.

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

    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.
