The southern side of Mont Blanc tends to be way less visited compared to its northern counterpart, but not in the least less beautiful and impressive. This Alta Via explores Valle d’Aosta, the Italian region just south of the border with France and Mont Blanc. The trek goes through the oldest national park in Italy, Gran Paradiso, and the Mont Avic Natural Park, areas of outstanding natural beauty and so rich in wildlife. There will be lakes, streams, unspoilt peaks and no ski resorts. We will roughly follow the established route, with the possibility of going off track and climbing some of the nearby peaks, walking over 3000m passes and close to some of the greatest glaciers in the Alps. We’ll sleep in huts most nights, a great opportunity to meet the locals and hear some stories about the area, with only a couple of nights in campsites or B&Bs in the valley.
