Summer

Summer is the perfect time to discover the fresh high alpine world. For experienced mountain hikers and sports lovers who like to go off the beaten track in the Alps and search for adventure, our program offers a range of challenges for active holidays.
Our guides will take you to rough terrain, on rocks, glaciers and high mountain peaks; places which are not accessible to the mass. In addition, they share with you to the secrets of the high alpine mountains, they point you to the dangers, learn you climbing techniques and give you the necessary confidence. During our tours and courses in the Alps, you will learn new values and will gain important experience that can be useful later when traveling independently or on an expedition.

This tour is gradual in height adjustment, but we recommend that you'll acclimatize a few days before the tour starts. Very nice is the contrast of climbing on the vast white glaciers in the high alpine mountains and the green valleys, forests and typical Italian mountain villages of the Val d'Ayas.
