Refine your search for walks in Aosta Valley
A trek across the Gran Paradiso passing through the 5 surrounding valleys.
Stage starting in pasture which quickly heads into the high mountains passing through the Valcornera pass.
Undertaken over 10 days, this circuit around the Matterhorn is outstanding. Each day it takes you over the 4000 m peaks of this alpine range. As it is located in 2 countries, Italy and Switzerland, it also brings you into contact with three European languages: Italian, German and also French in Valais in Switzerland.
Warm-up walk to reach the Prarayer refuge along the right bank of the lake.
A two part hike. First up the Doire de Valgrisenche, a steady slope offering a leafy, green landscape. From the refuge, the landscape becomes essentially mineral and the slope steeper all the way to Vuert's small perched lake. Stunning high mountain surroundings.
Nestled at the foot of Tête du Ruitor and its glaciers, within a beautiful setting, Saint-Grat Lake is the highlight of any hike in its own right. Through the final twists and turns before the lake, the slope is smooth and the route straightforward. The next climb much steeper, leading to Refuge Adami gives you a stunning view point.
Spectacular view over Gran Paradiso.
From Valsavaranche to Val de Cogne in the middle of a herd of chamois.
Another valley trek, the aim of today is Valsavarenche.
Fourth stage between Valgisenche and Val de Rheme.
A Trek through Valgrisenche with a view over the large village dam.
A long and difficult stage due to the ascension of 2 passes.
It may not be true paradise but it certainly is heavenly. An exceptional group trek carried out in July 2011 which allows you to explore the Val D'aoste valleys ending with a balcony trail to Gran Paradiso summit.
Discover the giant that resides here, the splendid Matterhorn itself, before getting a closer look in the evening at the Gandeg cabin.
