Description

located in the famed Aosta valley in the Alps of Italy, the Val d’Ayas is a beautiful place to visit.

For four wonderful days, I would like to lead you on a hiking tour through the nature of the Italian Alps. The surroundings in the Val d’Ayas are magical and the landscape is a true natural wonder. The area is filled with emerald coloured lakes, stunning meadows and vast plateaus. During this hike you will also get to see several of the Alps’ most famous peaks. One of those peaks is the incredible and world famous Matterhorn (4,478m), which stands tall across the Swiss border in Valais. Another one of those peaks is the sensational Monte Rosa (4,634m) rising high within the Aosta valley. You will get to see both of these great peaks from various angles throughout the trip.

Along with the natural beauty of the Val d’Ayas, you will also get a taste of its history. This sparsely populated area has incredible historical significance, dating back to ancient Roman times.

Throughout this trek in the Val d’Ayas, we will be hiking from approximately 4 to 6 hours. And because this is an alpine valley you will be experiencing altitude increases of approximately 800 to 1000 metres per day. As a result, it is important that participants are in good physical condition.

The Val d’Ayas is a fantastic place for a great hiking tour. And if you would like to experience it for yourself, all you have to do is send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you.

I also lead a wonderful week long hiking tour through the Gran Paradiso National Park as well.

About the guide

I'm a UIMLA mountain leader, a rescuer and a journalist. Since 18 years, the mountain is my office and my full-time job. My passion is about to transmit the small and big secrets of nature but also to allow everyone to find his right balance in an environment which might appear as hostile but which is actually a large reservoir of unsuspected individual energy. Here in the mountain, the masks fall down and that's the good point of it !

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
