Autumn in Northern Italy is the season of colors! For many hikers is a second summer! The days are shorter, many huts close but it is always possible to go hiking because in the valleys there are often several accommodations or you can take advantage of the bivouacs on the mountains.
Autumn is magic: larches are tinged with intense yellow, the sky in the beautiful days is clear giving endless views. The atmosphere of tranquility and relaxation that you breathe wandering through trails in this period is something unique and precious. As for spring, autumn is the season where rainfall can happen more frequently, but luckily this does not happen continuously and persistently.
In autumn you can go trekking from the high mountains, snow permitting, to the sea because the climate at high altitude is still relatively mild and on the Ligurian coast instead the temperatures are cooler and you can walk with pleasant temperatures still enjoying blooms and scents.
Autumn, for example, is the best season to discover the Valgrande National Park in Piedmont, or taking photography in the beautiful larch forests of Alpe Veglia and Devero Nature Parks. Walking in Gran Paradiso National Park you can have the best possibility to see animals such as ibex, chamois or fox as the trails of the reserve are much less frequented. Aosta Valley has few tourists and you can find idyllic and solitary places in the presence of Monte Rosa or Mont Blanc. In Lombardy Valmalenco and Valmasino are a treasure trove of beauty and colors with solitary paths through beautiful forests.
Whatever is your autumn desire of trekking or active holiday in the mountains, Trekupitaly is able to offer you all the routed tailored as you wish and letting you know the beauty of Italian mountains.
