Val Veny

The Val Vény is one of the most beautiful valleys in the Valle d'Aosta, with its natural views of Mont Blanc, the Aiguille Noire de Peuterey, the pinnacles of the Dames Anglaises, the Aiguilles des Glaciers and the Brenva and Miage glaciers.

One of Courmayeur Mont Blanc’s side valleys is the magnificent, wild Val Vény, starting point for a number of walks and ideal terrain for summer hikes or for skiing in winter on the pistes or down breathtaking freeride routes.

The valley directly faces Mont Blanc, the Roof of Europe, and the highest and most fascinating peaks in the Alps, and is also the starting point for walks and hikes either in the valley or at high altitude.

Essential walks are those to Lake Miage, the Peuterey woods or up to the Col de the Seigne which marks the border between Italy and France and lies in the shadow of the Pyramides Calcaires, spectacular limestone rock formations jutting out from the top of the Miage glacier.

Another famous attraction in the Val Vény is the sanctuary of Notre Dame de la Guérison, a much-loved sacred place, popular in summer with the religious and mountaineers alike. In winter, many of the ski pistes are on this side of the mountain making Val Vény the heart of Courmayeur’s skiing area, while its woods and rocky gullies, so pleasant during the summer, become the playground for huge numbers of passionate freeriders.
