Highlights

 
  • Stand at the top of Gran Paradiso, the highest mountain in Italy

  • Practice your mountaineering skills in this fairly accessible ascent

  • Get some of the most breathtaking mountain sceneries

 
Climbing a majestic mountain like the Gran Paradiso, is a one in a lifetime experience you cannot miss. The highest mountain in Italy, waits for you to reach its summit. So don’t miss out the opportunity to stand at its top, and join me on this 3-days mountaineering adventure in this wonderful place!

One of the main reason why the Gran Paradiso stands out from the rest of the Grain Alps, is for its impressive height. This colossal peak stands at 4,061 meters! So reaching its top allows you to have some of the most breathtaking views of the beautiful region that surrounds it.

Also, it is known for being a quite easy ascent for a 4000m peak. Thus it has become a sort of rite of passage for many mountaineers around the world. And, it is absolutely perfect for those who have little or no experience in climbing a mountain. Moreover, it is famous for being ideal for climbers who wish to prepare and get acclimatized for higher or more difficult mountains.

What’s more, the sceneries around this majestic mountain are hypnotizing. And you’ll get the opportunity to encounter many different species. From observing an ibex or a chamois, to admiring unique and beautiful flora.

Another reason why I adore this trip is that we’ll be crossing a glacial environment. Thus, we’ll have the opportunity to see some of the most dazzling sceneries in the area.

If reaching the summit of an impressive mountain like the Grand Paradiso in the Graian Alps, has always been a dream of yours, don’t hesitate and contact me. Let me guide you on this ascent. I promise once we stand at its top, you won’t be able to forget that amazing moment.

But, if you are looking for a different type of adventure, I also guide this Ski touring in Ubaye, France.

I was disappointed. I was slower than the rest of the group reaching Tete Rousse, and the guide discouraged me from going to Gouter. I had a slight ankle sprain the day before which slowed my ascent. I recovered 95% the day after. My complaint: when I decided to go for a second guided attempt, at a slower pace, I received no help in securing a guide, or a reservation at Gouter. The online reservation showed fully booked both for Rousse and Gouter. But I know that there were lots of empty bunks at Rousse, and I suspect the same at Gouter. I received sympathy, but only as a formality. Initially I had sought a single dedicated guide, but I was encouraged to join a group. I did not get a choice.I should have known better, I knew my pace would be a bit slower, but I counted on your support and understanding. I got neither. I was on my own with no help.
