Description

Explore the wild beauty of the Italian northern valley of Aosta on a 10-day trek from Courmayeur to Gran Paradiso.

Courmayeur, a northern town in the Aosta Valley, lies at the foot of the south side of Mont Blanc. Its picturesque mountain scenery makes it a highly attractive destination.

Its local church dates back to the 18th century and is home to the Giardino Botanico Alpino Saussurea, one of the highest botanical gardens in the world.

With the striking Mont Blanc behind us, we’ll trek southwards through the wild alpine beauty of the Aosta Valley. The combination of diverse flora and fauna species bring life to the remoteness of the valley.

We’ll pass by the ancient landscape of lands long inhabited by folklore, customs and legends.

Trekking though medium to high altitudes, and passing wild forest, meadows and pastures, we’ll reach the stunning mountain of Gran Paradiso, surrounded in the national park.

This is a challenging trip that is a total of 130 kilometres in length, as well as reaching 3,000m altitudes along mountain passes. For this reason, potential participants are expected to have a good level of fitness and stamina in order to fully enjoy the 1-day trek. 

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the north of Italy to explore the wild landscape of the Aosta Valley and witness incredible scenery along the way.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
