In a narrow valley in Italy's smallest region, Valle d’Aosta, before the road turns into a path, rests Champoluc. A true alpine town with about 500 permanent inhabitants and an unbeatable charm. 

The area invites you to hiking, trekking and running along well-prepared trails that wander in the woods, on the caldera and among glacier lakes of all coulours. The magnificent landscape is surrounded by Europe's highest mountains, Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, Monterosa and Gran Paradiso - a powerful experience! 

For the third summer in a row, we organize our popular trekk for Solo Ragazze – Ladies Only, in Champoluc.

Day One Arrival to Milan and bus transfer to Champoluc. Check-in at Hotellerie de Mascognaz (1822 m) . Spa, and welcome drink with program presentation before dinner at the hotel.

Day Two  From the Mascognaz Valley we walk through the woods and pastures to the next valley, Palazinas with its glittering lakes. We follow the same paths as the shepherds and their herds always have done up to the 2661-meter high pass. From the lakes, we will go down to our refuge where we will spend the night. Refuge Arp (2446 m) rests on an open grass field, often in the sun and always with a breathtaking view. This place is as made to unwind and in this beautiful environment, we get yoga with Corinne from Yoga Monterosa. Dinner at the refuge.

Day Three From Arp we walk up to Col Ranzola (2170 m), between Ayas and Gressoney, along medieval trail paths. After a nice pick-nick, the trail leads us down towards the village of Estoul, where the bus will pick us up and drive to Barmasc. Here we spend the night at comfy Chambres Lavarets Chambres d'Hôtes. Dinner at our friends’ at Le Bracconier - a classic!

Day Four Today we gather altitude meters as we hike up the Mont Zerbion (2728 m). It will be 800 meters up. And down. The reward is an unparalleled view of the entire Aosta Valley, and in clear weather, both Mont Blanc and Matterhorn are aimed. Today, there is a great chance to see both ibex and other wild animals. Stop for pick-nick. In the afternoon we return to Champoluc. Tonight we stay in the middle of the village, at our favorite hotel Castor.

Today there is time to stroll in the village, sip a cup of cappuccino at the terrace of one of the cosy cafés along the pedestrian street, or visit the picturesque shops at the square. Departure to the airport shortly after lunch.
