Looking for a challenging climb to a beautiful peak in the Apennines? Then this ascent to Corno Grande in the Gran Sasso National Park is perfect for you.

Situated in the Gran Sasso d’Italia massif, Corno Grande is the highest summit in the Apennines and the Italian Peninsula. It has an altitude of 2,912 meters and offers an incredible view from its summit.

The meeting point of this trip will be Piazzale di Campo Imperatore, located in L’Aquila province of the Abruzzo region. Once we reach Corno Grande’s summit, we will get to see the incredible views of the Calderone glacier, Corno Piccolo and the Adriatic Sea

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
