Aosta Valley – Italy
5 days/4 nights

These territories were elected hunting reserves by the Kings of the Savoy family who, in the mid-nineteenth century, had hundreds of kilometers of trails built to climb the mountain sides, rich in wildlife.
These paths still form the backbone of the hiking itineraries of the two parks, winding through one of the richest areas of lakes and bodies of water in the region. Being protected areas, it is easy to admire, in a still intact nature, the grace of a running chamois or the agility of an ibex on the rocks. The flora, in the period of maximum flowering, is rich in bright colors that take on a particular value: they represent the adaptation of life to the severity of environmental conditions.
