Mountain Climbing in Italy

Magnificent mountain climbing experiences in Italy: wonderful landscapes, comfortable huts and a unique gastronomy.

Italy offers an infinity of perfectly beautiful summits for lovers of mountain climbing. In the Aosta Valley region, there are several peaks that invite you to hire a certified guide and enjoy a mountain climbing adventure of one or several days. No matter your physical and technical level, in Italy you will surely find a program that suits you: from slopes with little altitude change to high summits such as Mont Blanc, at more than 4500 meters. This peak, together with the Matterhorn and the Gran Paradiso, are good options if you want to live an experience in direct connection with the landscape of the Alps. At the Italian border you are also very close to another great goal that you must try: Monte Rosa, in Switzerland.
