Highlights

 
     

    Of all the 3000 metre peaks that I offer trips for, Mont Velan (3,727m) is the biggest. This impressive peak in the canton of Valais in the Pennine Alps rests on the border between Switzerland and Italy, and is between the Great St. Bernard Pass and Grand Combin. There are also several glaciers covering this mountain, including the Glacier de Tseudet, the Glacier de Valsaroy and the Glacier de Proz.

    Mont Velan is a beautiful mountain surrounded by beautiful mountains. It is also a mountain that is fairly easy to climb. Thus making this trip an accessible adventure that even beginners can participate in.

    This trip is spread out over 2 days. On the first day we will depart from Ollomont or Valpelline. From there we will spend 2 to 3 hours walking to the bivouac of Savoie. The second day will be spent making our ascent of Mont Velan. It will be a mixed climb, as you will be scaling rock and glacier, until you reach the summit. Once there, you will get to enjoy some unforgettable views before descending. The ascent and descent should take approximately 8 to 10 hours.

    The itinerary of this trip might appear fairly straightforward. However, I can assure you the trip is anything but. You will get to see beautiful scenery that can only be seen in the Alps. And you will get to feel the thrill of scaling one of its most spectacular peaks to its summit. So if this is the kind of trip you are looking for, just send me a message, and lets get started.

    If you are looking for another 2 day climb in the Pennine Alps, I also offer this ascent of Mont Gele.

    What People are Saying about Peaks Hunter Mountain Guide Team

     

    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. André and Vânia
