Ice Cave at Klein Matterhorn
Hidden 15m below the Plateau Rosà Glacier (3,810m) is the world’s highest and biggest ice cave. This transparent ice cathedral is one of the wonders of the natural world and is sure to take your breath away.
Castello di Fenis
Built by the Challants, the ruling clan of Aosta during the Middle Ages, Castello di Fenis is the best preserved of all the castles perched atop the mountains in the Valle d’Aosta. The views across the Alps and the valleys are spectacular and are worth the visit alone.
Ditch the skis and get out and enjoy the scenery at a more relaxing and sedate pace. A great way to see some of the local fauna.
The ultimate adrenaline rush - a panoramic helicopter flight around the Matterhorn Valley with the added bonus of skiing some of the best off-piste slopes in the region. Not for the faint-hearted!
Even if you’re not interested in throwing yourself down a mountain at high speed, be sure to get up close and personal with one of Europe’s highest mountains. Enjoy the exhilarating journey by cable car, admire the views, see the earth disappear amongst the clouds and breathe in that crisp mountain air.

This little parish museum houses a fine collection of religious art and iconography.
A small village with mammoth fortifications that were built to repel French attacks. From the village a series of 4,000 steps leads up to the 18th century fort of San Carlo. This amazing feat of engineering and human ingenuity is rumoured to be the largest stone fortification other than the Great Wall of China.
Winter Mountain Biking
This is no ride in the park - the owner has competed in some of the toughest mountain bike races and has cycled some of the most inaccessible trails on earth. Off-piste cycling at its best.
The original castle dated back to the 12th century. After the enforced demolition in accord with the Paris Peace Treaty of 1796, the present day fortifications were built and today house an interesting military museum.
