The tour of Monte Viso is a unique experience in the Western Alps. In fact, it’s one of the most spectacular high-altitude hikes in the region.

You will have the opportunity to discover the mythical Italian summit, Monte Viso (3841 m) through different faces.

During 4 days, we traverse a mineral environment with some lunar views.

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

Do you find this hiking trip interesting? Then please contact me! I will be very happy to guide you on this beautiful traverse for 4 days. I also offer a 2-day trip to reach the top of this mythical summit that I love.
