The walks for families in the valley of Gressoney

Posted on 02-07-2013

Booking a hotel in Aosta is a good opportunity if you want to spend a pleasant holiday with the whole family. A place where you can dedicate your time to outdoor activities, immersed in the nature of this region. Particularly in the Valley of Gressoney, with its walks for families.

The first of these walks for families in the Gressoney Valley is the Passeggiata della Regina (“Walk of the Queen”), a very easy path from Saint-Jean to Castel Savoia, through forests, little waterfalls and shady grasslands. Another one is the so-called Anello Walser (“The Walser Loop”), from Gressoney-Saint-Jean to Gressoney-La-Trinité, with the typical Walser houses.

The spectacle of the mountains silhouetted against the sky or the picturesque mountain towns. Or again, the refuges and the possibility to take walks in the nature. The Valley of the Lys, near Gressoney-La-Trinité, in the Aosta Valley, has it all.

First, in the Lys Valley there is a strong Walser tradition: this is a population of Germanic origin who settled in the valley in medieval times. The Walser have maintained their traditions, including the typical way of building woody houses with sloping roof. And this characteristic gives the towns of the valley (including the locality of Gressoney-La-Trinité) their characteristic appearance.
