“Tor des Géants:
total immersion in nature”

Hundreds of kilometres of trails that wind through the
Gran Paradiso National Park, the Regional Park of Mont Avic
and the Natural Reserve of Mont Mars.
Places populated only by Ibexes, marmots, Chamois and golden eagles.

Walking at night, in the darkest of dark,
accompanied only by the light of the moon,
allows you to meet on your journey
these discreet hosts of the mountains.

Surprise them,
look at them, still, in the moment which anticipates the terror,
and then see them run away.
This is just one of the experiences which the Tor des Géants offers.

And then there are protected natural areas, botanical gardens,
sites belonging to the Nature 2000 network,
eco-hotels, all brought together under one label:
VIVA, Valle d'Aosta Unica per Natura, in English “Aosta Valley: Unique for Nature”.
