Yoga & Hiking in the Italian Alps
Hiking & Yoga is the perfect combination of activity and relaxation, allowing you to recharge, reconnect with yourself and nature in a majestic and inspiring environment.
If you love hiking in the magical mountains, exercising yoga with a view while breathing fresh mountain air and can also appreciate the Italian kitchen, then this 3 -day tour is definitely for you!
It’s an easy tour suitable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness since none of the paths are particularly technically demanding. Another advantage of the easy-going pathways is that instead of constantly watching where to put your feet, you can take in the breath-taking views! We’ll stay 2 nights in a luxury mountain hut, so no need to carry a heavy backpack the whole way long! Just make sure to take your swimming suit, as there is a nice mountain lake not far from the cabin.
We’ll meet in Vetan, a very small village in the Aosta Valley, from where we will hike to our basecamp, a hike of 4 hours. After we’ve installed ourselves in the hut, we’ll do a session of Hatha Yoga. Before we go to bed, Chantal will give a Hatha Flow & Yoga Nidra session.
The second day we’ll head off with a Vinyasa Flow session. After breakfast we climb up to the Col de Fenêtre, just under the the imposing Mont Fallère (3061 metres high), with with a panorama that takes in Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn. After a good lunch, we could either walk to the Lac Fallère and do our yoga session, Pranayama & Meditation this time, at the bank of the lake, or we could take it easy and stay around the hut.
In the evening another session of Hatha Flow & Yoga Nidra before we’ll fall in a deep sleep.
On the last day, we’ll start with Hatha Flow before breakfast. After having packed our rucksacks, we’ll take a nice path up&down back to our starting point.
