Cogne Valley offers endless opportunities for walks and excursions to suit every taste and degree of difficulty. In addition to Alpine itineraries (classic routes over rock and ice to reach peaks at 3000-4000 metres) there are pleasant walks in the three valleys that are well signed and also indicated on maps that we will be happy to give you on arrival.
The most popular walks are those leading to the Vittorio Sella alpine shelter, the Herbetet and Money farmhouses, Lake Loie, the Grauson summer pastures, the Lussert lakes and Lake Coronas. Less well known but also very pleasant are walks to the Nomenon farmhouses, the Trajo valley or the Valeille valley leading to the Arolla farmhouse.
The Lillaz waterfalls are only an easy 10-minute walk from the hamlet of Lillaz (part of Cogne municipality) and are by far the most attractive ones in Valle d'Aosta. These waterfalls, which ice over in winter but are very powerful in summer, are fed by the abundant waters of the Urtier torrent and cover a drop of 150 metres in three long rocky falls. There are also splendid views over the Valleile valley, dominated by its own and the Sengie glaciers.Read more
