The neighbouring Italy, represented by the Aosta Valley, is an exceptional playground for hikers with its peaks offering magnificent views of the south face of the Mont-Blanc Massif and the Grand Paradiso. Located north of Courmayeur, Val Ferret and Val Vény will offer unforgettable memories to the hiker with their views of the rock giants of Mont-Blanc within easy reach. On the Val Vény side, the hiker in search of new sensations will undoubtedly go to Lac Chécrouit, Lac des Vesses or the Bivouac du Petit Mont Blanc. On the Val Ferret side, the Bonatti Refuge, the Tête Entre-Deux-Sauts, the Tête de Ferret or the Refuge Bertone are ideal hiking objectives, especially for spending the night in a bivouac. No wonder the Tour du Mont Blanc is regularly depicted as one of the most beautiful circuits in the world!
