Horseback riding in the Aosta Valley paying attention to the climate because temperatures vary according to the altitude of the territory.

Summers are short with long winters where the high altitude temperature drops to -20 ° C and in summer temperatures above 30 ° C are recorded in the valley floor with little wind that accentuates the annoying sensation of mugginess.

It is a walk that winds along the pristine paths of the valley, in the direction of Saint Pierre and Saint Nicolas, two small characteristic villages, where you can breathe an atmosphere that seems to have crystallized over time, among majestic mountain peaks, pastures, woods and medieval castles will make you feel immersed in another dimension.
