Description

The path that leads from Mont Blanc to Monte Rosa has one of the most beautiful sceneries in Europe. Join one of our certified guides on this 7-day hiking traverse and get ready to discover it!

We like to call this trip the Giants Trail, because it goes by some amazing peaks that makes you feel like a tiny part of the world.

This stunning route starts with a meeting in Courmayeur (1224 mt) where we’ll give you a short safety related briefing and then drive go to the trailhead in Val Ferret.

From then on it will be an amazing and extremely panoramic hike through the Aosta Valley. We’ll hike through the most incredible cols and passes, so that we’ll give us views of almost the whole valley. The star of the trip will be the Matterhorn, which we’ll pass by very close to admire its incredible shape and size.

We’ve planned this trip to spend the nights both in huts and hotels, so it’ll combine comfort and nature in the best possible way.

So send us a request and let’s make this 7-day hiking traverse from Mont Blanc to Monte Rosa your next great adventure!

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.
