Monte Viso – Timeout Trekking: A Hike through Mindfulness and Nature
July 25 - July 28
Guide: Philip Svobodnik
Wild nature – reflection and wakefulness await you during this Timeout Trekking“
During this multi-day hike we want to find more aliveness and lightness together. With the help of guided meditations, systemic exercises and the wisdom of nature, you can take new perspectives and draw strength and inspiration for your daily life.
On an inner and outer journey, you will become familiar with mindfulness and meditation. You will train your perception and practice opening your heart and mind to the joys and tasks of life.
In the beautiful Cottian Alps in Piedmont – Italy, we will circle around the Monte Viso, during a 4-day hike including overnight stays in various huts.
With its 3.841m, it is the highest and most impressive mountain of the Southern Alps. Freestanding and over 500 meters higher than its neighbours, the Monte Viso is visible from Corsica, Tuscany and even in the far away Alps. Its shape became the basis for the Paramount logo, which is known from so many movies.
On the circular hike around Monte Viso we get to know the different faces of this mountain and the varied landscapes in which it is embedded. We will explore boulder fields that give witness to huge landslides, meditate on deep blue mountain lakes and hike through swiss stone pine forests with trees up to 600 years old.
Giro del Viso (2.950 m) Circumnavigation of the Monte Viso:
Ascent 2,100 m; descent 2,100 m; 4 days; route length: 35 km
Difficulty / requirement:
The trails are well passable, but surefootedness and a good physical condition are required. Due to the altitude, experience in alpine terrain is necessary.

Where could it be easier to adopt the attitude of mindfulness than in nature?
In nature we relax and calm down and the more we let it affect us, the more mindful we become.
Mindfulness & movement in nature enrich and accompany me my whole life. As a leader of mindfulness journeys, I see myself as a companion of people on their inner and outer journey of discovery. Through self-awareness in nature, I want to inspire people to live a conscious, healthy and fulfilled life.
