Paths and trips

It is quite easy to find at Donnas an enjoyable walk or hike, meeting whatever tourists need.

Each hamlet can surprise with a typical tiny street, an old fountain, a centuries-old door of a noble building, a house which still keeps its ancient taste and the hard work people who lived there did. A walk along the tracks through the fields or the grasses on the plane or through the vineyards and the woods on the hill could lead to discover agriculture and its typical buildings, the Barmet, which still preserve the ancient charm of producing wine, or the several oratories, symbols of the local devotion deep-rooted in the  territory and decorated with valuable frescos, or also buildings belonging to the industrial past linked with steel industry.

The local area has always been also a destination for expert hikers, runners and trail runners because of the paths and the mule tracks which lead up to the mountains over the village. Never forget that Donnas is the location of the Tor des Géants “life base”, considered “the turning point” to go back towards Courmayeur.

 

THE PATHS OF DONNAS

Hiking around Donnas is like diving into the past, in a place where nature is re-gaining a landscape that man had managed to conquer with huge effort.

Set in a stunning landscape and far from mass tourism with ancients terraces, old fortresses, stunning dry-stone buildings and some wonderful mule-traks.

This is the “other Valle d’Aosta” where nature is pristine and quiet since these areas are usually by-passed by most turists who head to more well-known destinations.
