2 Days

Jun - Sep


Description

Join me on this 2-day ascent to the Mount Viso summit and enjoy everything this Italian wonderland has to offer.

With its very characteristic shape, this 3841-meter mountain is an emblem of the Italian valley of Po and a great classic among climbers. Its magnificent flora and fauna also make it a favorite among hikers.

We'll find ourselves surrounded by beautiful wild flowers and, if we are lucky, we might even see some animals on the way up. Marmot sightings are fairly common.

This time around, we'll climb the Mount Viso peak by its eastern edge. This route is longer than the normal route but doesn't present any technical difficulties. Lastly, on the way down, we'll use the normal route.

The ascent requires a very good physical condition and some climbing experience. We'll spend the night at the friendly Quintino Sella mountain hut. There, we'll renew our energy for the ascent on the second day.

Challenge yourself with this beautiful climb of one of the Italian Alps' most mythical mountains. This 2-day program is perfect to enjoy some of this beautiful region's highlights.

If you'd like to check out another of my Italian programs, take a look at my Climbing expedition to the Argentera summit.

If you've always dreamed of climbing Mount Viso, this is your chance! So contact me and I'll be able to help you with the planning. We'll spend an unforgettable 2 days together.

Mountain Guide

Hi! My name is Fabien Artero, I have been a mountain leader since 2008 and mountain guide since 2014. I discovered my passion for the mountains by spending time during my youth at the Valle Argentina in Italy, in the Ligurian Alps.

I slowly discovered activities that allowed me to travel the valley along the seasons...

The mountain is a large playground. We have to play according to its mood, mountain conditions, weather and finally choose the itinerary... Which renders these activities complex and exciting.

These activities allow us to discover the valleys, massifs, the countries and people living in them. Altogether is makes for an enriching mixture from any point of view.

I wanted this to become my profession because, of the mountains, human contact and the practice of exciting activities.
