This 1-day hike to Gonella Hut in Val Veny is a demanding adventure for those of you in very good shape and wanting to push their efforts!

The Gonella Hut (3071 m) is located above the Val Veny, close to Courmayeur in the Italian side of the Mont Blanc massif. It’s part of the most popular route to climb the Mont Blanc from Italy. And it lies on the Aiguilles Grises ridge in between the Dôme glacier and the Glacier de Bionnassay. So it’s a place full of mountaineering tradition and history.

To get up to this mountain hut and down on the same day you’ll have to be in very good shape. It’ll be a demanding program for which you’ll meet with one of our guides at 6 am in Courmayeur. From there you’ll take a transfer to the starting point on the Miage glacier.

The hike up will be steep and you’ll be following an easy via ferrata. Once on top, you’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery for a little bit and then start the long way down again!

Sounds like an amazing program? It is! Send me a request now and we’ll start planning your 1-day hike to Gonella Hut in Val Veny. You’ll spend an unforgettable day out in the nature!

Paolo made the ski trip a total success in difficult conditions. His knowledge and enthusiasm are worth the investment to get the max from this ski area. Thanks again



Perfect experience with a wonderful guide



We loved our guide and our adventure. She was very accommodating to our needs and nice to be around. I would totally book with explore share again.



We did a 1 day Ferrata with Marica. We've both never climbed a Ferrata before but we are both good hikers. We enjoyed our trip very much and you don't need to be a climber. Marica took good care of us and she is very informative with the local geography and history. We felt very safe with her. If you are traveling near the Dolomite and want to try something a bit out of your comfort zone, I highly recommend doing a ferrata especially with Marica. We did both ferrata ra gusela nuvolau and ferrata-averau. It took us about 6 hours.



I had a truly fantastic experience with Gabriele from PeaksHunter. He was a very experienced, careful guide. He was very considerate and encouraging and I was very fortunate to have this climbing experience with PeaksHunter.
