Hiking the Alps in January

Snowshoeing Italy in the Beautiful Mountains near Turin

Winter Hiking in the Alps: Hiking in January

If you want to experience the real cold, this is the right time to come!

Hiking in January is for hardcore guys.

You can find very nice routes but the temperature will be freezing(even -25° C) and you have to be ready for that. As long as you walk there is not much of a problem but if we’ll stay in huts the cold will come and you have to be prepared with the right mountain gear. 

As in the other winter months, we suggest hiking inn to inn sleeping in some nice Bed and breakfast or Inn and enjoy days hikes. Like this is also easier to plan routes, choosing day by day itinerary according to weather and snow conditions.

We will 99% of the time use snowshoes as the snow usually is everywhere in January in Turin and in the Alps. It is possible to spend a night in a Hut or Mountain Lodge but not more than one.

Main Features



  • Best Altitude: between 800 and 2000 meters
  • Average Temperature at 2000 meters at 12AM: -8°C
  • Special: Snow and cold!
  • Ideal Days of Trekking: 1 or 2 – Inn to Inn for more Days
