Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Aosta Valley

The Aosta Valley, or Valle d’Aosta, is a semi-autonomous region in the northwestern part of Italy. It is bordered by Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, France, Valais, Switzerland, and the Italian region of Piedmont. Aosta is the only region in Italy that has no provinces; the regional capital is Aosta, nestled in a valley. Other main towns include Gressoney-Saint-Jean, Brusson and Gressoney-La-Trinite. Transportation around this region is relatively simple, if you are here to ski. To get here, fly to Turin (Torino), Milan, or Geneva and catch a scheduled bus into Aosta. For hikers and travellers keen on exploring, it may be best to rent a car in one of the major cities.

The Aosta Valley is within the Italian Alps; it is a tributary valley whose Italian-side peaks include Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, Gran Paradiso, and Monte Rosa. Due to its location and elevation (the lowest being nearly 1300m high), the Aosta Valley’s climate is considered continental. The high valleys have extremely cold winters (-3 Celsius average) and warm summers (13 Celsius average.) This region has some of the coldest winters in the Alps.

Budget accommodation is available, but it is scarce. Traditional hostels can be found in the larger cities of Turin, Milan, and Geneva; there are only a few in Aosta. If you are seeking budget accommodation and cannot find a hostel (or “pension”,) consider a bed and breakfast or guesthouse.

Once you have your hostel sorted, explore this remote part of Italy. Snow bunnies can spend time at one of the six world-class ski resorts in the region, sip mulled wine at a winter market, and stroll the quaint towns under the moonlight. In the summer, hike through the many glacial valleys, climb challenging mountain trails to get unrivalled views of the surrounding valleys, visit tiny historic chapels, and learn about the medieval history in this secluded region. There are Roman ruins to explore as well as 14th century castles, a cathedral, and small towers and fortresses in town.

From the one-of-a-kind Gran Paradiso National Park to the thrilling cable car at Courmayeur to the medieval fortresses of Castello Fenis and Castello di Verres, there is plenty to see and do. Whatever you choose to do in the Valle d’Aosta, you will enjoy it!
