I am planning a trip to Italian Alps in mid June and have just discovered Aosta Valley.
Here is the plan: we will be in the area June 9 (Sat) to June 17 (Sun). We would like to do some road cycling and some hiking. We will have a rental car and will rent road bikes in Aosta.
1) We will ride bike for 3 to 4 days, going up Cervinia, Colle del Nivolet and in the valley. Does anyone know of a good place for road bike rental in the area?
2) We will hike in Gran Paradiso Park 4 to 5 days, based in Cogne and/or Pont, hiking up to refugio(s) and spending night(s) there. Will it still to too early in the season to plan hut-to-hut trekking or even hut over night trekking?
THanks all for your help!
