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

Take into account that the difficulty of this program is high. You will cover a distance of 10 kilometers and experience an elevation gain of around 850 meters during the hike. Consequently, it is important to have prior mountaineering experience and to be physically fit to join this trip. 

So, if you find this program appealing, send your request to book it now and get ready for a fantastic experience in Gran Sasso d’Italia massif!
