If you are going to Courmayeur, you just HAVE to hike. I won't lie -- some of the trails have a steeper ascent/descent but the pay off is worth it. We hiked to Rifugio Bonatti. Breathtaking.

Val Ferret is at the Italian foot of Mont Blanc, minutes from the Alpine village of Courmayeur. It is a breathtaking hiking trail. On one side are the snow-capped Alps, almost close enough to touch, on the other side is a fast-flowing river. It is...More

Signposts are missing or wrong or hidden. The signpost for Monzino hut i.e. simply doesn't exist. And the same for many others paths

The area has fantastic views and the hiking is quite easy. There are several trails in the area. We visited Val Ferret in June and it was still a lot of snow, it was however quite easy to hike and run anyway.

We drive up the valley as far as we could until we were stopped by the snow. The scenery on a sunny day was quite superlative with amazing views of the Helbronner and Mont Blanc chain. You feel very close to the mountains.

A wonderful and exhilarating walk which last about 2 hours. The scenery is breath taking and if you want a break from skiing for the day, this is a must

Me and my wife went there for a little trekking on the snow. Very easy but also a special and simple way to escape from the crowded Courmayeur! We suggest to reserve a restaurant to avoid waiting long time / risk to not find a...More
