TRANSALP AOSTA

An unforgettable journey
from Mont Rosa to Mont Blanc

ITINERARY

DAY 1
Arrival in Aosta, transfer by shuttle to Val d’Ayas, group welcome and briefing on the tour program from your guide.
DAY 2 - Welcome to paradise

The journey begins! We will ascend the Val d’Ayas to the foot of the Monte Rosa massif and up to visit Rifuggio Grand Tournalin, before crossing over into Valtournenche for a beautiful long descent down into the valley.

Altitude gain: 1,250m including 200m of portage
Descent: 1,200 m.

DAY 3 - VALTOURNECHE VALLEY

From Valtournenche we’ll use the cable car to take us up into the mountains and pedal towards Cervinia, where we’ll ride at the foot of the Matterhorn, which will be in full view throughout the day. In the afternoon we’ll ride ancient trails heading west, crossing into the next valley to reach Rifugio Magià, where we will spend the night in the mid of a beautiful high Alpine valley.

Altitude gain: 1,300m including 300m of portage
Descent: 1,100 m.

DAY 4 - INTO THE WILD

We start the day with a bit of “portage” to quickly gain height and leave any sign of civilisation behind as we head towards our second col of the day at Vessona (2,788m). From here, a long and epic descent towards Valpelline awaits us. Once we reach the valley floor we will continue to Aosta for an ice cream and a free evening visiting the Roman city.

Altitude gain: 1,150m including 550m of portage
Descent: 1,900 m.

DAY 5 - FROM TOWN TO Mountain

After a shuttle transfer up and out of Aosta we’ll start pedalling on 4×4 tracks in the high mountains. The view of the Gran Paradiso area is as expansive as it is breathtaking. A portage takes us to Col Citrin, where we’ll ride an incredible long, and challenging descent to St. Rhémy-en-Bosses.
Luggage transfer to the hotel.

Altitude gain: 1,650m including 350m of portage

DAY 6 - GAIN YOUR HAPPINESS

The last day of our tour takes us to the realm of her majesty the Mont Blanc. Our efforts to reach Col Malatra (2,934m) will be rewarded by both the unforgettable close up view of the Mont Blanc and the unforgettable trails that will lead us to Courmayeur for a well-deserved beer!
We’ll then transfer with the shuttle to Aosta where you can spend the evening as you please with the warm glow of memories made.
