Snowshoe walk in the village - among history, architecture and nature

The chance of walking in complete safety in winter is an opportunity not to miss. Snow shoes, known as ciaspole, allow us to walk on snow covered territories in an easy way. Once the basic techniques have been mastered good fun is guaranteed.

Winter is a wonderful season in Valle d’Aosta where, thanks to the snow, everything becomes secret and hidden. Animals that choose not to go into hibernation must face a difficult period. Discovering their characteristics and how they adapt to this period makes our day magical.

The walk up will take us to the hidden, secret villages of Valdigne, Valtournenche, Valgrisenche and one of the valleys of the Gran Paradiso national park. Once inhabited all year round by courageous families, nowadays populated above all during the summer months. In fact it’s for this reason that these places acquire a particular fascination, as if time has stopped for the wood and stone cottages, the church, the fountain…what better place than this to enjoy our well-earned packed lunch in front of a unique and magical panorama? Together we’ll discover the characteristic architecture of these places and the ingenious constructive abilities of a time, copied today, renewed and still used in modern buildings.

After a wonderful day in the mountains, what could be better, for who wants to try, than a speedy descent down the slopes accompanied by a soft cloak of snow?
