Monterosa - Champoluc, Alagna, Gressoney, Cervinia, Macugnaga, Saas-Fee, Zermatt

From the melting snow and the retiring glaciers on top of the  Monte Rosa massif, rivers formed the well-known valleys of this area. From the Middle Ages people have been building their villages here and today those villages are the famous resorts of Monterosa. Starting from at the feet of the Matterhorn, we find Cervinia and Zermatt, going northeast to Saas Fee, and going southeast to Champoluc, Gressoney, Alagna and Macugnaga.

Alta Via 1

Alta Via 1

Discover landscapes of Aosta Valley

The Alta Via n 1 is an extremely well prepared and marked trail, going through the whole northern side of Aosta Valley, for more than 150 km. It touches slopes of the most epic high mountains in Europe: Monte Rosa, Matterhorn and Mont Blanc, and goes not only through beautiful mountain nature, but also through Walser villages from the Middle Ages. All that together with the glaciers and the Refugios, where alpinists meet from all over the world.

There are more than 20 peaks over 4000 m in the Monte Rosa area and many of them are reachable from a beautiful rifugi located on glaciers.
