Trekking In The Turin Alps

12 Itineraries From 3 To 6 Days


This guide pulls together some of the most significant walking routes in the Alps surrounding Turin and crossing into the French Hautes-Alpes.
These treks, winding through the mountains do not represent a border; their natural and geographic essence serves to connect extensive areas, and have for a long time helped to unite the common culture of the people who live on one side or the other of these mountains.
These itineraries follow a pattern of walking, resting and walking again for two, three, four or more days, journeying with body, heart, mind, senses and spirit immersed in the nature of the Val Troncea, Orsiera-Rocciavrè and Gran Paradiso parks along with other SCIs (Sites of Community Interest). From the areas visited the views span across the nearby mountains of the Gran Bosco di Salbertrand, Ecrins and Vanoise. The geology, flora, and fauna of these habitats merit attention and curiosity none less so than the human landscape with its traditional architecture, regional works, customs and traditions along with many other cultural aspects which have developed from centuries of coexistence with the Alps.
Walk and sleep in the mountain to reawaken your sense of discovery and adventure.
