More Info

Rising to 4.061 meters in elevation, Gran Paradiso is the tallest mountain solely located within Italy. It also happens to be an easy peak to climb, making it an attractive destination for first-time and novice mountaineers.

The ascent is generally made in two to three days, depending on how well you acclimatize. The first day is the approach and involved hiking to the mountain htu at which you will stay over boulder strewn fields.

You will then either spend the night in the Rifugio Chaboud or Rifugio Vittorio Emanuele II, both of which offer authentic mountain hut ambience and fantastic views.

Summit day is the highlight of the trip and requires some glacier travel with ice axe and crampons as well as a bit of mixed ice and rock scrambling to get to the top.

We enjoyed this trip in the Alps very much!! It was an excellent introduction to mountaineering and the stunning peaks of the Alps massive. Our guide Martin made the full experience a succes; pushing us to the limits, keeping us safe at difficult rocky ascents, but also taking time to enjoy the scenery and the climb. Thanks a lot for the beautiful pictures too!
