This place 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, Monterand Gran Paradiso - a powerful experience!

And as usual, our accommodations are carefully selected, we will sleep close to the stars in a wellpreserved medeval mountain village and end our tour with a five stars experience at Camp Zero, pioneering luxury resort in Champoluc.

Day one  

Arrival and private transfer to Champoluc. Those of you who have traveled with us before know there is a good atmosphere already on the bus.

This time we have chosen a really special place as our base. Located at 2032 meters, the fascinating medieval walser-village Cuneaz, an evocative little hamlet of traditional wooden mountain houses clustered amongst the mountains with stone roofs and paths, offers mountain views all the way to Mont Blanc.

This tiny village, was inhabited all year round by over 100 people at the beginning of the 20th century. There was a school, a mill, a church, a communal oven and everything the small community might need. Our rifugio Aroula, is run by the only family today permanently living in the village. The rifugio or guesthouse, has only a few rooms all furnished in typical mountain style. The restaurant is known as one of the best in the valley with a menu based on top quality ingredients and typical authentic flavors.

Trekking

Day two 

We enjoy a breakfast buffet filled with local products before we hit the trails. The ancient path to the next pittoresque Walser village Mascognaz is a perfect warm up. Once there, and maybe after javascript:__doPostBack('dnn$ctr1247$EditHTML$cmdSave','')an espresso at the cozy bar, we enter in the broad valley with the same name. Passing one of the old mountain pastures still in use, we start walking uphills towards Lake Perrin (2779 m). This is a great place to paus, have a picnic and compliment yourself for the effort –well done! For the once who want to continue higher up, from here you can reach Corno Vitello (3056 m) by walking on a long stone ridge. The descent toward the valley of Cuneaz is both gentle and scenic.

Back at Aroula we catch the evening sun at the terrace, preferably with a glass of local wine and a pice of Fontina cheese. Dinner and a guaranteed good night’s sleep.

Lago Blu

Day three 

If you’ve taken an outdoor yoga class, you know there’s something magical about practicing yoga outside, surrounded by nature. If you wish, you are invited to our yoga session before breakfast.

Today we’re doing a really classic, but yet stunning, trek to Lago Blu. Following the rushing waters of the glacial melt, we climb towards the little village of Fiery. Continuing e up the mountainside through trees, passing farms and gazing cows. The sound of the rushing water and the jingle of the cowbells will transport your mind as if on a mediation exercise. At the top of the mountain, you will encounter a different landscape. The open glacial basin provides great views of the glacier and towards the valley behind. A slight drop in temperature gives a cool breeze, resting the muscles from your climb and bringing a sense of calm to the area.

The outstanding blue colour of the appropriately named Lago Blu comes from the glacier melt. And if you never have swum in a glacier lake before this is the time. After a swim a picnic you can choose to continue all the way up to the glacier and rifugio Mezzalama.

Wine tasting with local grapes in Champoluc.

Dinner at the rifugio.

In the valley of Cervinia

Day four 

After breakfast we take a relatively short walk down to Champoluc. Jeep-ride up to rifugio Grand Tournalin. From here we follow the Alta Via, the haute route over the mountain pass Col di Nana (2698 m) to the neighboring valley of Cervinia. It’s a quite challenging passage and the lunch at Bich, mountain pension since 1926 gives us both much-needed energy and Matterhorn-view.

Back in Champoluc and check in at Camp Zero. Five stars relax, spa and aperitivo before dinner at not-to-be-missed La Grange..

 

Camp Zero

Day five 

Take time to enjoy the breakfast buffet at Camp Zero.

Today there is time to stroll in the village, sip a cup of cappuccino at the terrace of one of the nice cafés along the pedestrian street, or visit the bakery and the deli at the square, before heading back to the airport.
