5 Days of Trekking in Valle d'Aosta, Tour to discover lakes, villages and mountain forests
A whole week to experience an extraordinary natural world and beautiful unspoiled places
Valle d'Aosta is the ideal place to discover the Italian Alps: beautiful trails, spectacular alpine lakes and characteristic villages surrounded by 3000 meters peaks. In these places you can really appreciate the beauty of unspoiled nature, and it is here that we have organized a fun tour for trekking lovers.
It consists of 5 days of intermediate level walking trips (E), departing in the morning and returning in the evening to Courmayeur, where our group, for a maximum of 8 travelers, will make a base to leave every day to a different destination. Accompanied by an Environmental Hiking Guide, we will explore an enchanting territory walking all day, and then meet again in the evening all together 'with the legs under the table', as we say in Piedmont.
We will also go for a spectacular cable car ride, on the scenic Sky Way of Mont Blanc, up to 3,466 meters of Punta Helbronner.
Our minibus will assist us to take us on the paths, and to take us from Turin (or from Ivrea - TO) to Courmayeur, and bring us back at the end of the holiday.
The price also includes the night accommodation, and all packed lunches and dinners.
Please note: the route can be modified according to weather and safety conditions. So there might be last minute variations.
Itineraries on varied paths, sometimes quite steep. To get the most out of these hikes you should be quite to walking with your backpack.
A great sports and mountain lover, during the summer you will find him along the trails hiking and mountain biking, and in the winter again there with skis or a snowboard on his feet. Always looking for new routes, he loves good food and good company. When he is not in the mountains you'll find him at the sea side surfing or rehearsing a play with his actor friends.
Never without: a good cup of coffee

This tour consists of 5 days of hiking, based in Courmajeur (AO). We can therefore meet directly there, if it is convenient for you.
If you prefer, we have two other meeting points planned, that we will drive by in our 9 seats Minibus with air conditioning and free wi-fi on the road to Valle D’Aosta:
- Porta Susa railway station in Torino
- Ivrea (TO) railway station
In any case, once the group is established, we will start the day as usual with a welcome breakfast, to get to know each other before leaving for our adventure.
Here are the scheduled times:
- 6.30 am at Turin Porta Susa railway station
-at 7:30 stop at Giroola headquarters at Villareggia (TO)
- 8:15 am stop at Ivrea train station (TO)
- 10:00 am arrival at Courmayeur (AO) and stop for breakfast
- 10.45 am departure of the excursion from the village La Visaille (AO)
The tour will end on the fifth day at about 4pm, time of arrival of the excursion to La Thuile (AO), and then we will start driving towards home by minibus.
This tour is perfect for solo travellers:
- we take care of everything
- you are independent and can choose whether and when to share meals and your free time with the group
- you get to know people from all around the world in a small group
We'll start with a coffee (yes, real espresso!) or a juice and pastry, get to know the group, and by the time we jump on board and start exploring you'll be among friends.
So, solo travellers are very welcome on our tours, and if you are ok with sharing a double/triple room with other members of the group we'll send you an email after the booking and you will tell us your preferences (e.g. girl ok to share a bedroom with other girls only, etc).
If however you prefer us to book a single room for you, it is available during the reservation process for an additional fee..
If there are no other solo travellers in your tour or if there is no possibility to match your preferences (or your roommates happen to snore too much!), your single room will be on us, no additional charge will be required.
