An Ideal Destination
Courmayeur is nestled at the foot of Mont Blanc in the Italian Alps and is the ideal destination for those who want to explore the attractions offered by Europe's highest peak. It is a strategic crossroads for visiting the beauty of the Italian, Swiss, and French Alps. Activities are available year-round, with snow taking center stage in the winter months, while summer brings hiking into the spotlight. The main attraction is undoubtedly the Sky Way Monte Bianco, the eighth wonder of the world—an avant-garde cable car that connects Courmayeur to the 3,492 meters of Punta Helbronner in the Mont Blanc massif.
Throughout the year, you can visit a farm and discover the secrets of fontina cheese production or embark on a Quad adventure.
In the winter months, you can ski on the slopes of the Courmayeur ski area or take a test drive on the new track at the Grand Hotel Royal and Golf. Don't miss out on a typical Valdostan dinner on the ski slopes or a Wild aperitif in a "Pardes" (a snow lounge adorned with furs). For nature enthusiasts, there are opportunities for mountain biking in snow-covered forests, dog sledding excursions, or cross-country skiing on the Val Ferret circuit. Lastly, for those seeking unique experiences, you can go Kitesnowing or take a helicopter flight over Mont Blanc.
During the summer months, you can play golf from June to September or go hiking on Mont Blanc with alpine guides. Don't miss a horseback ride in the woods or a day of rafting, canyoning, and hydrospeed.
Courmayeur is also easily accessible to the regional capital, Aosta, a cultural center with two thousand years of history, where you can explore the remains of the ancient Roman city, the second-largest in Italy in terms of size and the quantity of artifacts, or indulge in shopping at the many downtown shops.
