Valtournenche

Travel Guide

Explore the snowy trails, cliffs and slopes at this enchanting ski resort town in Italy’s Aosta Valley near the Swiss border.

Valtournenche is a charming ski resort town that sits nearly a mile (over 1,500 meters) above sea level in the Alps. Its many miles of white slopes and valleys offer enjoyment for both amateur and professional skiers. Look for the historical attractions in the town center, including a church that dates back to the 1400s. Outside of town, find scenic countryside trails, off-piste hikes and a deep ravine. The many different pistes are served by plenty of ski lifts.

Notice that many of the landmarks have French names due to its proximity to France and the Francophone region of Switzerland. The area once belonged to the Savoys, one of the oldest royal families in the world.

Take a guided tour into the wilderness away from ski tracks with the Cervino Mountain Guides. The area has off-piste regions and numerous ice waterfalls. Capture photos of the extraordinary landscape and panoramic views of snowy cliffs. Skiing and snowboarding lessons are available; explore the range of slopes for people of varying ability.

Make your way to the Gouffre des Busserailles, a ravine carved over time by running water from the Marmore River. Lean over the edge and look down into the abyss.

The Valtournenche area remains white throughout the year, with the largest snowfall around April. Walk around the tranquil, serene region during the summer when there is less snow. Stroll through picturesque forests and spot rhododendrons in sprawling fields or go mountain biking around the rural setting.

Visit the 15th-century Sant’Antonio Church in the historic center. Its bell tower stands out above the flat landscape and the small buildings in the area. Admire the works of art and the small religious relics inside the church.

Valtournenche is in the Aosta Valley in northern Italy, near the famous Swiss resort of Verbier. Stay at one of the resorts in the region. A delicious hot chocolate will warm you after a long day of skiing and exploring the slopes.

"I travel a lot and never write reviews, but was so pleasantly surprised by the hotel that I thought I would write one this time. First, the hotel is brand new, which means it is in great shape. Second, it is a little outside of Cervinia, but their shuttle bus process makes it very easy to get back ..."

Great location!
"The apartment is well located, a short walk from the Cretaz chairlift and the main street of shops and restaurants. We were a group of 4 adults and 4 children (aged 8 to 11), and I would say it was cosy but perfectly adequate. I don't think I'd recommend it for 2 families with older children, but ..."
