More Info

Stretched over just 3,200 square kilometers, the Aosta Valley is chock-full of incredible mountaineering opportunities. Aside from the three aforementioned options, which are among the most popular, there are plenty of other great peaks to climb.

Taking a day to climb the Breithorn from Cervinia, in the north of the valley, is another popular option. This is another climb that is perfectly suited for beginners and provides incredible views out over the Matterhorn.

Aiguilles d’Entrèves, just outside of Courmayeur, is another classic alpine climb. The sustained climb requires traversing glaciers and some technical climbing at the summit, but the views of Mont Blanc are well-worth the effort.

Intrepid moutnaineers can even head up Mont Blanc, itself, approaching from Pointe Helbronner and traversing the entire massif en route to the top!

We were guided by PeaksHunter in a Gran Paradiso ascent, and it was memorable! We just would like to thank Silvia and Elis for the wonderful trip we\'ve experienced with their guidance. The communication and organization before and during the trip was clear and detailed. We felt completely supported and safe accompanied by Silvia and Elis. Thanks for clarify all our questions and help us very kindly mainly considering our lack of experience in trips like that. At supermarket, the ride to the park, the lunch before we start, during the trail, at meals in the mountain, at all these moments we had great company and support. This was our first ascent in this altitude and Silvia and Elis demonstrated be professionals very experienced and high skilled. We appreciate the way they enjoy the nature in a respectful and safe manner. They were attentive to the minor details regarding our security and also our experience. We are lucky to have had you as our guides. The best photo we took it is not enough to express how good is the feeling to be at this point in the mountains and appreciate pure nature. We saw landscapes completely new for our eyes in a memorable experience. Silvia and Elis, thank you very much. We really appreciate our time in Gran Paradiso and we feel lucky to be guided by you. André and Vânia
