Climbing in the Aosta Valley

Whether you are an experienced climber or a beginner, there is an adventure for everyone in Valle d’Aosta. Mont Blanc, one of the highest mountains in Europe, is easily accessible from here. But the Gran Paradiso and the Matterhorn also offer spectacular challenges for mountaineers. But the Aosta Valley is not only for mountaineers and climbers. Here you can also explore numerous hiking trails and enjoy the untouched nature – the Aosta Valley has something to offer for everyone.

Prices and Programs

Green valleys, white peaks

The Valle d’Aosta borders on France (Dép. Haute Savoie) and Switzerland (Canton Valais). In the east, it is bordered by Piedmont, Italy. The area of the autonomous region is about 3260 km2 and it is inhabited by about 127,000 people, which makes it the smallest region in Italy. Aosta is the capital of the Aosta Valley. The official language is both Italian and French.
Initially inhabited by the Celts, the region was conquered by the Romans in 25 BC. The Romans founded the original Aosta. Over the years, the place was increasingly taken over by Burgundians, Franks and Ostrogoths. From the 11th century until 1946, the Aosta Valley belonged to the House of Savoy. Due to a special statute of 1948, the Aosta Valley became an autonomous region and is certainly one of the most prosperous regions in Italy.

Cheese and wine
Another important economic sector is agriculture. The cheese Fontina, which is registered as a protected trademark, comes from the region. Viticulture has also established itself over the years and renowned wineries such as Cave Mont Blanc and Les Cretes produce excellent wines.

Holidays for active people with periods of relaxation
In summer, the Aosta Valley is still considered a travel secret. Its mild climate makes it a great place for active holidays. You can wonderfully combine the simplicity and originality of the valley with activities such as hiking, climbing and mountain biking. In the evening, you can end the day with a good wine from Piedmont or the regional cuisine. Especially the combination of the white peaks of the Monte Rosa mountains with the green valleys make this destination a unique holiday. Green valleys, clear mountain lakes and steep cliffs are the hallmark of the Aosta Valley in summer.
