Description

Gran Paradiso, rising to 4061 meters, is the highest free standing mountain in Italy.

The Gran Paradiso National Park is a protected area of the Alps. It concentrates beautiful nature and landscapes and it’s definitely worth it to get to know it.

This 7-day ski touring program from hut to hut is the ideal itinerary for intermediate skiers looking for an adventure in an exceptional setting. And it’s not only about the stunning beauty of the area. Indeed, we will also enjoy the warm hospitality and the delicious Italian cuisine.

We will travel on our skis sleeping in four different mountain huts: Vittorio Sella, Chabod, Vittorio Emanuele and Pontese.

We will have the chance to get to the top of the beautiful Gran Serraz. And of course, we will go up to Gran Paradiso, the most famous peak in the region! Up to passes and down through glaciers and varied slopes, this is a true Italian adventure that you can not miss.

Tempted to discover the hidden corners of Gran Paradiso on this ski touring program? Then wait no more and send me a request so we can start making plans! I would love to guide you there. And another ski touring route that I guide is the Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt, check it out!
