VALLEE D'AOSTE

Come to discover the highest mountains of Europe!

Valle d'Aosta is a small region located in the extreme north-west of Italy. Its borders are surrounded on the northern part by Switzerland, in the western side by France, in the southern and eastern part by the Piedmont Region.

In this small alpine area there are most of the highest peaks in Europe such as: Monte Rosa, the Matterhorn (Cervino in italian), Mont Blanc and Gran Paradiso. Then there are smaller but very interesting and elegant peaks such as: Grivola, Dent'Herens, Monte Emilius, Mont Avic, Testa del Ruitor and many other peaks, some of them over 3000 m reachable by hiking trails.

A multi-day trekking in this region is wonderful and suitable but it is also possible to make day trips from Milan or Turin, thanks to the fast highway that reach the first valleys at the feet of Monte Rosa.

Climate in Valle d'Aosta is fantastic, thanks to the protection that the high mountains chains offer in this region, the rainfall is lower than in other areas of the Alps. In the lower valley thanks to the mild climate all year round, excellent wines are produced and beautiful hikes can be made even in winter, while in the upper valley it is possible to reach 3000 m with wonderful excursions in a grandiose environment.

In Valle d'Aosta the typical mountain cuisine will surprise you with authentic and genuine flavors and the hospitality of the refuges is very nice.

The best way to discover this enchanting and magnificent part of the Alps is a multi-day trekking from refuge to refuge or, if you prefer comfort, stopping at a farmhouse in the center of the valley and moving around the region by car to discover some of the 14 Alpine valleys.

Here it is a summary of the Alpine valleys of Valle d'Aosta:

GEOGRAPHY AND GEOLOGY

Valle d'Aosta is a small Italian region located north-west of the Alps. In just over 3000 km² there are several peaks among the highest in Europe. To the north the alpine chain extends from Mont Blanc to Monte Rosa creating a very high natural barrier, same also to the south with Gran Paradiso, Mount Ruitor and the other 3000s of the southern valleys. Thanks to this mountains barrier, the Aosta Valley enjoys a particular climate. The eastern valley floor is rich in vines and the winters are milder than in other areas, while in the valleys, thanks to the high altitudes, there are several glaciers. The dominant rock is Gneiss but there are also areas of Limestone and beautiful Granite such as those of Mont Blanc.

NATURE

With an altitude range that goes from the plain to the glacial, the floral and animal species are abundant. Floral biodiversity is almost unique thanks to the microclimates and the different types of soil. In Valle d'Aosta the ibex is present in all the valleys, as well as the golden eagle, the bearded vulture and the marmot. Observing these animals during a trek is very frequent and it will be exciting to see them in their natural environment live.

Mont Blanc

SCENARIOS AND PANORAMA

Most of the valleys have large areas, such as suspended valleys, large glacial plateaus, alpine lakes, rocky places and glaciers. All these elements make up a scenario of great beauty. If you love photography or great landscapes, Valle d'Aosta is the right place to have holidays. Taking a trek or day hike in this region, you will return home with your memory card full of beautiful images.
