    Descripción:

    When we think of the Alps, we visualize landscapes of great beauty: blue skies cut by giant pyramids of gneiss and ice, idyllic villages where tradition has preserved the heritage, immense glacial valleys, green meadows, fields of flowers, coniferous forests, wildlife, perfectly traced trails, impeccable mountain refuges. Therefore, the options of walks of different technical difficulty or physical demand are endless.

    The program we propose here meets all these expectations, but what the next stage will bring is always uncertain. That is what makes the mountains fascinating!!
