Stretched over just 3,200 square kilometers, the Aosta Valley is chock-full of incredible mountaineering opportunities. Aside from the three aforementioned options, which are among the most popular, there are plenty of other great peaks to climb.
Taking a day to climb the Breithorn from Cervinia, in the north of the valley, is another popular option. This is another climb that is perfectly suited for beginners and provides incredible views out over the Matterhorn.
Aiguilles d’Entrèves, just outside of Courmayeur, is another classic alpine climb. The sustained climb requires traversing glaciers and some technical climbing at the summit, but the views of Mont Blanc are well-worth the effort.
Intrepid moutnaineers can even head up Mont Blanc, itself, approaching from Pointe Helbronner and traversing the entire massif en route to the top!
During the summer months, the weather for climbing in the Aosta Valley is ideal. Average temperatures on the mountain hover between 8 ºC to 12 ºC. Weather on the mountain can be fairly unpredictable, but the summer months tend to be the driest.
Any trip to the Aosta Valley generally begins with a flight into either Geneva International Airport (GVA) or Turin’s international airport (TRN). From here, various starting points in the valley are only a few hours drive away. Many guides also will opt to meet you in either Turin or Chamonix.
