SELLA-HERBETET TRAVERSE – 2 Days Trek – Level DEMANDING

SELLA-HERBETET TRAVERSE – 2 Days Trek – Level DEMANDING 2000 1333 TrekMI

Referred to as one of the best hiking routes in Italy, the Sella-Herbetet traverse grants hikers an authentic and all round experience of the alpine environment. An itinerary that winds from the forest to the high altitude meadows which are a favourite habitat for the animal symbol of the Gran Paradiso National Park, the ibex. A trail that takes us across breathtaking landscapes, near jewel-colored lakes and some of Italy’s highest mountains, including the Gran Paradiso 4.061 m mountain.

Day 1
The itinerary starts from the village of Valnontey (1.682 m/5,518 ft), following at first the Alta Via 2 (“Hight Altitude Route Number 2”) to the Sella Hut (2.584 m/8,477 ft), a former hunting lodge of Italy’s first king Vittorio Emanuele II. We start early from the city of Milan and heading to Valnontey (3h). Here we stop exploring the Paradisia Alpine Botanic Garden, home to around 1,000 species of plants and flowers. After lunch in Valnontey we start hiking uphill to the Sella hut (2.5 h) which will be our home for the night. The trail develops along a well-marked mule track and covers most part of the elevation gain of the traverse.

Day 2
From the hut it’s a long but very panoramic way (most of which downhill) to close our loop itinerary in Valnontey. The path takes us across the western side of the valley, towards the source of the stream that gives the name to Valnontey and the glaciers from which it gets its origin. The views are stunning: peaks of over 3.000 m and the Tribolazione Glacier below the Gran Paradiso itself. A long-distance itinerary not to be taken lightly and that includes some exposed stretches with chains for protection. Participants must have good balance and be confident on their feet.

Experienced hikers with a good training level can cover the itinerary in one day (22 km/13.6 mi), saving money but sacrificing a couple of hours of sleep the night before the hike. Departure from Milan should be scheduled around 5.30am. Contact us for more details.

VAL GRANDE NATIONAL PARK – Day Hike – Level DEMANDING 2560 1920 TrekMI

An itinerary that takes you straight to the heart of the Val Grande National Park, the most extensive wilderness of both Italian and European Alps. Thousands of hectares of mountains abandoned by man that nature has been slowly reclaiming over the past fifty years. A treasure to be preserved, that holds the memories of an ancient world and remnants of the hard-working people who lived there nearly secluded until the last century. The area was also ground to some tragic events that took place during the II World War. Starting from the village of Cicogna (reached along an adventurous narrow road) we hike up to the panoramic terrace of Alpe Prà, enjoying wonderful views over Lake Maggiore. The trail takes us then in the beech forest to the ruins of Alpe Leciuri, our highest point for the day. From here we start descending towards Pogallo, once the biggest village along the transhumance routes to the higher pastures. From Pogallo we then get back to Cicogna along the scenic muletrack that stretches right in the gorge of the river, that here forms crystal clear pools and waterfalls. This itinerary is particularly recommended during fall.

Located in the very central part of the Italian Alps and framed by those high mountains that divide it from Switzerland, Val Masino is, with good reason, one of the most beautiful italian valleys. The “land of granite”- as everybody calls it – is a paradise for rock climbers but also for those enthusiastic hikers who are willing to get closer to some over 3,000 metres high peak. In two days we’ll have a chance to explore its most beautiful corners, including the “Golden Valley” (Valle dell’Oro) and Little Yosemite (Val di Mello).

Day 1
We hike to the Omio Hut which will be our home for the night. Built on the edge of a panoramic bastion that overlooks the Masino Valley, the Omio Hut is a spectacular observation point of the highest mountains in the area.

Day 2
After descending from the Omio Hut and back to the car, we reach the Mello Valley, Val di Mello gets its namesake (Italian Little Yosemite) for features resembling some of the majestic formations found in California’s Yosemite Valley: imposing walls and domes of polished granite rock modelled by glaciation, streams, pools and waterfalls of crystal-clear icy water. A scenic background for the valley’s lush mountain meadows of exceptional natural beauty!

WAYFARER’S PATH – Day Hike – Level EASY, MODERATE or DEMANDING 2000 1333 TrekMI

Half-way up the hills on the Eastern side of Lake Como, a series of ancient cobblestone paths and mule trails connect charming little shoreline villages to the higher altitude pristine meadows. Where they merge, a longer trail begins known today as the Wayfarer’s Path (“Sentiero del Viandante” in Italian). Over the centuries, this well traveled trail was used by wayfarers, pilgrims and traders heading to the planes and the higher alpine passes. This path overlooks spectacular views of Lake Como featuring olive tree plantations along the shore as well as chestnut, oak, and spruce forests higher up on the mountain sides. While immersing ourselves into this lush natural region we’ll explore the less-touristy side of this spectacular lake. The whole path is 45 kms long (28 miles) and it takes four days to cover it all. We are opting only for a one day hike, but it will be enough to experience the most beautiful and panoramic section of the trail. Keeping the little picture-perfect village of Varenna as our focal point, we can choose between three different levels of hiking difficulty:

  • Easy: from Varenna to Bellano, including a visit to the gorge of Bellano (optional)
  • Moderate: from Lierna to Varenna (lower route)  
  • Demanding: from Lierna to Varenna (higher route) 

In all three cases the transportation from/to Milan will be organized by train.

STRAIGHT TO THE HEART OF THE BRENTA DOLOMITES – 2 days Trek – Level MODERATE or DEMANDING 2000 1333 TrekMI

At the very heart of the Brenta Dolomites, surrounded by impressive lunar-like rock formations, are located some of the coziest mountain huts you could ever imagine. Our plan is to stay overnight in one them and hike around, exploring this Unesco World Heritage area during the days. A great opportunity to discover a world made of dolostone but also some of the most spectacular waterfalls in the entire region.

Day 1
We start early from the city of Milan, heading towards the world-class skiing resort of Madonna di Campiglio (4 hours). From here we start hiking, immersed in the idyllic spruce and larch forest. Following the water jumps of the picturesque Vallesinella waterfalls we reach a first mountain hut. Here we stop for a delicious traditional meal. The hike isn’t over and now is actually time to get ready for the real spectacle! The trail takes us smoothly above the tree line and closer to the rock towers that are the backdrop to the Ai Brentei Hut. Newly restored this mountain hut offers great views and a super cozy atmosphere. The perfect place where to spend the night, not giving up the basic comforts.

Day 2
If you’re in for an early wake up call and you want a bit more of a challenge, we can hike even higher to the Alimonta Hut, hidden among the upper gullies of the Brenta Dolomites. If not and anyways on the way down from here, our hike continues traversing to the Tuckett Hut, located at the foot of some of the Dolomites’ most iconic rock formations. Such an amazing background scenery for our lunch break! In the afternoon we continue our descent to the car and from there back to Milan.
