How to get there

From motor way exit Aosta Ovest turn right onto the national road n. 47 for Cogne. Once in Cogne, continue for 3km and reach the hamlet of Valnontey.

Easy, varied and interesting excursion within the Gran Paradiso National Park where it is possible to come across herds of chamois and ibex. There is also a spectacular view of the Gran Paradiso mountain and its imposing glaciers. Along the walk you will see climbers climbing the countless ice falls.


Description of the route

Leave the car in the large parking lot at the beginning of Valnontey, continue on the orographic right-side of the stream until you reach the first wooden bridge. Cross the bridge and continue along the track that goes up on the orographic left, being careful not to step on the cross-country trails. Just beyond the Prà-su-piaz pasture, the path becomes narrower and crosses a bridge again, returning to the right. The route reaches the houses of Vermiana. To come back follow the same route. The itinerary being very popular, it is often possible to cover it on foot.
