4 days of trekking in the Aosta Valley

A holiday that is simple to travel but at the same time has so much to offer: mountains, valleys and unspoilt nature will be the key aspects of this trip.

This is a guided experience of 4 excursions, with reserved transfers, intended for the pure discovery of unique and unspoilt spaces in nature, with a maximum number of participants of 15 people. 7 nights' accommodation with breakfast in the hotel of the chosen category.

The first excursion will be the day after arrival in Valle d'Aosta and we will discover the Gran San Bernardo Valley, where the majesty of nature is combined with an ancient history. A historic pass that for centuries was one of the most important communication routes in Europe, linking the Italian peninsula to the rest of the continent.

The excursion to the Great St Bernard Pass will allow you to walk along part of the Via Francigena, the pilgrimage route that led pilgrims from northern Europe to the holy places, arriving then in the pretty village of Saint-Rhémy-en-Bosses, surrounded by green wooded slopes.

After passing the Col des Ceingles, at an altitude of 2810 metres, you will face a long descent that crosses different environments, rich in enchanting flora. The stop for a coffee break will be at the Frassati Refuge.

The third day will follow with the second day of trekking in the fantastic Valle d'Ayas, a wide and green valley at the foot of the real pearl of this area: Monte Rosa.
The excursion will start from Saint Jacques, a small village immersed in the green valley from which you will reach one of the most likely excursion destinations of the high Val d'Ayas: the splendid Blue Lake, of an intense turquoise colour.
After tackling the various ups and downs of the hike, you can take a break at the Ferraro refuge in the Walser village of Resy, above the village of Saint Jacques.

The fourth and fifth days will be available for rest or for free visits and excursions. We recommend a visit to Roman and medieval Aosta, a visit to some of the castles that this fascinating region is home to, or a ride on the Skyway Monte Bianco cable car, a lift that will take you to the closest point to the summit of Mont Blanc.

Day six will see the third excursion and transfer to Rhêmes Notre Dame, in the Gran Paradiso National Park, the oldest national park in Italy, rich in wild animals and rare flowers.
We will start from the small hamlet of Thumel, following a path towards the Benevolo Refuge. After crossing the Dora di Rhemes on a footbridge, the trail continues along the Vallon de Grand Vaudalaz. Valleys, glaciers, forests, streams, lakes, waterfalls, meadows and villages make up the extraordinary mosaic of this corner of the Alps.

The last excursion on the seventh day will be to one of the destinations most sought after by all trekking and hiking enthusiasts: the magical Mont Blanc in Courmayeur, with the guides providing a convenient shuttle transfer.

The eighth day is destined for departure, but there are a few free hours to greet all the beauties that these places have to offer guests, such as a visit to the Fortress of Bard, and inside it, the "Museum of the Alps", a fascinating virtual journey to discover the Mountain Universe.
