From 1300 to 3500 meters of altitude. The wide variety of trails available adapts to the needs of all enthusiasts: for those who simply love walking, for the careful hiker, for the most demanding mountaineer. Along sunny routes and walks through the fir and larch forests you can reach the most famous peaks of Bardonecchia and the Alta Val di Susa: the Red Spire, the Val Fredda, the Tre Croci, the Sommeiller glacier, Mount Tabor and the peaks of Pierre Menue. The rocky ridges surrounding the basin are a real challenge for mountaineers and represent an attraction that brings together crowds of sportsmen for at least two centuries. In the hamlet of Melezet there is also the via ferrata of the Rouas: a very beautiful via ferrata on limestone where three different routes develop with different travel times and difficulty levels. For lovers of climbing, the Olympic mountains of Bardonecchia offer the best walls and scenery to practice free-climbing immersed in nature. Several equipped walls are available, among which the most famous is the Militia Wall located near Valle Stretta.
