Aosta Valley

HIGH MOUNTAIN TOUR

Over 4000 m

in one day

The Aosta Valley offers with the Gran Paradiso a four-thousander easy to climb for beginners in altitude tour. Located on the border between Switzerland and Italy, the possibilities of trekking and climbing are nevertheless more than varied. The peaks of the Dent d’Hérens (4171 m), the Grand Combin (4313 m) or the Matterhorn offer demanding ascents and descents. These peaks are not called the “Giants of the Aosta Valley” for nothing.

Grand Combin Meitin Ridge

The Grand Combin is certainly in Switzerland but the view from Aosta is certainly one of the most beautiful! The Meitin ridge is becoming more and more the classic way, the ascent via the glacier being objectively more dangerous. The ridge is a little more complicated than the path via the glacier but offers a nice alternative.

Tiefmatten ridge Dent d´ Hérens

Dent d’Hérens, located at the end of Valpelline, is among the most isolated and least climbed four-thousanders. The summit was for the first time conquered on August 12, 1863. We climb on the Dent d’Hérens via the beautiful ridge Tiefmatten.

Matterhorn Lion ridge

The Matterhorn is undoubtedly the most famous mountain in the Alps. Most ascents are made by the Hörnli ridge on the Matterhorn: only a few of them take the Lion Ridge. The latter is certainly more ambitious but it is none the less beautiful.
