by night excursion  - CervinaA unique itinerary, the crossover to Valtournenche is only for those who are fit as it requires a little physical energy. Following the route to Alpe Layet, Carosello Alto, from here we continue upwards to the “Gare” until joining the ascent to the Canyon, a rocky bottomland. Here we turn and continue along the mountain ridge, the landscape opens up as we ascend towards the Castello di rocce, another couple of bends and we come to the valley of Champlong, a few alpine huts for shepherds. A few more ups and downs, and from here you can see the floor of the valley and behind you the Matterhorn. We are now faced with the bottomland of the Mande, the route goes up and down the hills and across the snowfields, we can see the tops of Motta and Roisette, and the foot of the valley, the whole world below us! It’s like being in the clouds. We reach the lifts of Valtournenche and follow the route to a refuge, where we stop for a glimpse of Valle d’Aosta and a glass of mulled wine. Refreshed, we head on up for the way back. On the return trip, we use the same piste until the exit from the Canyon and start the descent by going through the Mande wood, following on to Rocca Promindo, Tre laghi and Pian del tasso, where we stop for a test of your driving abilities, on an appropriate track, or for those who haven’t driven along the route to have a try. An ideal place to take photos or make films. Passing through Chateau wood you might see squirrels on the way back. Descent via Vorpilles valley, along the shores of Blu Lake, Baby hill and return.
