2-day ascent to Monviso, 3841m

2-day ascent to Monviso, 3841m | undefined

Join an IFMGA-certified guides to climb the magnificent Monviso or Mont Viso, in the Italian Alps.


2 Days

Jun - Sep


Monviso or Mont Viso, the mythical summit of Italians! This magnificent mountain, which can be seen from anywhere, is truly a great peak to explore and discover. 

At 3841 m, Mont Viso is the highest peak in the Cottian Alps,  a mountain range located on the border between northwestern Italy and northeastern France. It lies on the Italian side and is famous for its pyramid-like shape and because it’s 500 meters higher than all the mountains that surround it, so it can be seen from a great distance.

On this 2-day ascent, we’ll climb to the summit of this stunning mountain. We’ll spend the night in a mountain hut, so you’ll experience the traditional Italian mountaineering atmosphere. There are different routes that we can take. I like the Eastern edge in particular. It's a spectacular ridge offering breathtaking views! You can find an outline of the itinerary below. 

If you would rather just hike in the area, you can also join this 4-day Mont Viso hiking program!

So, would you like to climb to the top of Mont Viso? Then I invite you to contact me. I would really enjoy taking you to the summit!
