Would you like to get to the roof of the Apennines? If you love mountaineering, an ascent to the Gran Sasso d’Italia is a must! Don’t miss this incredible opportunity.

The Gran Sasso d’Italia Massif is located in the Abruzzo Mountains of the Apennines. Its highest peak, Corno Grande, lies at an altitude of 2,912 meters above sea level. This is also the tallest summit in the Italian Peninsula.

I invite you to reach this peak on a 1-day program. Our starting point will be Prati di Tivo, a little village near the massif. We’ll begin our trekking and explore the Vallone delle Cornacchie, a glacier valley between Corno Grande and Corno Piccolo. Then, before getting to the summit, we’ll reach Rifugio Carlo Franchetti, at 2,433 meters above sea level. During the whole program, we’ll be able to contemplate breathtaking alpine landscapes.

Please, take into account that this program is for participants with background mountaineering experience and a good level of fitness. Of course, I will be there to assist you all the way. 

So do you think this program is for you? Then get in touch with me by sending your request and we’ll start preparing for this fantastic adventure in the Apennines.

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.
