You will walk on fresh snow through dense fir and larch forests, in the company of an environmental guide who will tell you many curiosities about thenatural environment and the various protected species that inhabit the area.

Prepare yourself for an extraordinary spectacle: the immense Mont Blanc massif will be the backdrop to the valley's marvellous frozen sheet of water.

What we will do

When we are ready, we will start walking along suggestive snow-covered paths, accompanied by the guide's tales, who will describe the natural environment in all its details. Along the way, we will appreciate the beautiful views of the valley and meet the wild animals that enrich the biodiversity of the place.

The walk will take us to Lake d'Arpy, a splendid sheet of water of glacial origin, set in a picture postcard landscape at the foot of Mont Blanc.

Before resuming the return journey, we will breathe in thepure, uncontaminated mountainair, contemplating theenchanting atmosphere of this little jewel hidden in the Aosta Valley mountains.
