    The tour of Monte Viso is a unique experience in the Western Alps. Let me show you the way to this incredible peak!

    Monte Viso (3841 m) is the highest peak in the Cottian Alps, which are a mountain range located in the border between northwestern Italy and northeastern France. This peak lies on the Italian side and it’s famous for its pyramid-like shape  and because it’s 500 meters higher than all its surrounding peaks, so it can be seen from everywhere around.

    So this program is one of the most spectacular high-altitude hikes in the region. You will have the opportunity to discover this mythical Italian summit from its different faces.

    During 4 days, we’ll traverse a mineral environment with some lunar views. We’ll sleep in a different mountain hut every night, so you’ll experience the traditional Italian mountaineering atmosphere. This way you’ll be able to enjoy the amazing scenery that surrounds this peaks from all its faces!

    I greatly recommend this hike that will not leave you indifferent.

    Do you find this hiking trip interesting? Then please send me a request! I will be very happy to guide you on this beautiful traverse around Monte Viso for 4 days. 

    And I also offer a 2-day trip to reach the top of this mythical summit that I love.

    I want to post my review on Peaks Hunter Mountain Guides ( see below).I climbed Mont Blanc in September 2019 with Peak Hunter Mountain Guides. The service I received was excellent. They provided me with all the information I requested and more. Scheduling was clear and everything went as it was planned. My guide, Luigi Gagliardi, is a highly skilled professional. He did a great job taking me to the summit, providing me with all instructions and taking a great care of me. I learnt a lot from him. He is also a great person.

    We were guided by PeaksHunter in a Gran Paradiso ascent, and it was memorable! We just would like to thank Silvia and Elis for the wonderful trip we\'ve experienced with their guidance. The communication and organization before and during the trip was clear and detailed. We felt completely supported and safe accompanied by Silvia and Elis. Thanks for clarify all our questions and help us very kindly mainly considering our lack of experience in trips like that. At supermarket, the ride to the park, the lunch before we start, during the trail, at meals in the mountain, at all these moments we had great company and support. This was our first ascent in this altitude and Silvia and Elis demonstrated be professionals very experienced and high skilled. We appreciate the way they enjoy the nature in a respectful and safe manner. They were attentive to the minor details regarding our security and also our experience. We are lucky to have had you as our guides. The best photo we took it is not enough to express how good is the feeling to be at this point in the mountains and appreciate pure nature. We saw landscapes completely new for our eyes in a memorable experience. Silvia and Elis, thank you very much. We really appreciate our time in Gran Paradiso and we feel lucky to be guided by you.
