Be it in the valleys next to Mont Blanc or the Matterhorn, under the glaciers of Monte Rosa, in the Gran Paradiso National Park or between the vineyards on the sunny side of the main valley - feel free to ask for your customized day of walking, starting from Aosta, Courmayeur or wherever you might be staying.
