Excursions

A few steps from the sky – excursion to the discovery of Val Ferret

The appearance of the Val Ferret that strikes from the very first sight is the strong difference between the two sides: the harsh and imposing northern one, formed by the eastern sector of the Mont Blanc range, sweet and smiling is the southern one, made of rounded peaks of which just some of them barely touch three thousand meters, wide side valleys covered with conifer woods, juniper and rhododendron shrubs, higher up, by alpine meadows. This great variety of shapes and environments becomes the ideal place to do beautiful hikes.
After having reached Planpincieux by bus, you will take a path which leads to a stunning view after having got through the wood.

Occasion to have lunch in chalet (price starting from 12€)

The coming back to Courmayeur will be possible by feet or by bus.

The excursion will be managed by a hiking guide from Aosta Valley.

Elevation gain: 400 meters

Drop height difference: 750 meters

 

A walk in the wood – Excursion to the discovery of Val Veny 

Val Veny, a natural glimpse of Mont Blanc, is a wild valley, a starting point for numerous walks and ideal terrain for summer excursions, where it is still easy to observe animals and unspoiled nature with balanced ecosystems including the forest.

The excursion leads to the discovery of the mid-mountain landscape.

Once you reach the village of Purtud by bus, a ring route takes you to the slopes of Mont Blanc, between larch and glacial moraine forests.
