Business description

A fascinating four-day trek to discover all the secrets of these wonderful places. Following the dense network of mule tracks used for hunting by King Vittorio Emanuele II, we will cross extremely varied landscapes: glacial lakes, alpine meadows, wild detrital expanses or relaxing grazing basins. Ibex, chamois, marmots, eagles and the still rare bearded vulture will be our travelling companions in this unforgettable adventure.

Overnight stays in Alpine refuges or comfortable stopping places, with the possibility of using the luggage transportation service, will allow you to travel with a light backpack and fully enjoy the beauties of nature. The trails, at altitudes ranging between 1,300 and 2,500 m, do not present any technical difficulties and are suitable for all hikers, as long as they are trained to hike in the mountains.
