2 Days

Do you dream about climbing a 4000- meter peak? Then Le Grand Paradis or Gran Paradiso (4061m) is a great mountain to make your dream come true! Spend two days up high in the mountains, regardless of your level, and enjoy this unforgettable climb, incredible views, great atmosphere in the mountain hut, and beautiful glaciers.

We will set off to the refuge in the late morning of the first day, hike for a few hours through beautiful valleys, and finish our climb to the mountain hut.

The next day we will leave for the summit. After ascending the glacier, we will finish with a small rocky ridge, and go to the top. Happiness, the joy of success, and amazing views of the beautiful Alps will reward our efforts!

There are two ways to climb to the top, either via the Victor Emmanuel refuge or via the Federico Chabod refuge, both extremely friendly and welcoming. We can use the same way to climb and go down or we can do a traverse. This ascent can also be done skiing (ski touring) during springtime.

Contact us if you are interested in this adventure, we will be happy to guide you and show you to the summit of the gorgeous Gran Paradiso!

About the guide

Since I was a boy I always had a desire to climb, following paved and unpaved roads to reach a peak. My bike took me around the world, exploring remote corners of the Earth. There is a special combination of solitude and beauty that lies in a desert road laid out under two wheels. I started my career as a cyclist, but also in my heart were the mountains and a good dose of self-challenge, with activities like triathlons and ultra distance mountain running.

After a Masters degree in Forestry Science and few assignements around Europe as Lab Manager, I realised that my love for the mountains, outdoors, and the desire to share this world with other people was too strong to be restricted only to the weekends.

Becoming a Mountain Guide was my answer! Living by the outdoors and sharing my passion for adventure. In life we are all faced with tough choices. The decision to train as a guide, to share my knowledge about mountains and help people safely achieve their dreams is reinforced each day with the experience I share with my clients.

We are each unique, in our dreams, experience and ambitions. Every season brings a new opportunity for adventure! Ski touring, freeride skiing or iceclimbing in winter; then, as the snow melts we go to the mountains for mountaineering, rock climbing, hiking and trail running.

Tell me about your ambitions,whether it is a one day, one peak, one face or couloir to a multi-day expedition. I offer customized programs tailored for each of my clients.

Let’s go for an adventure!

Federico was an amazing guide & was so professional in our successful summit of Gran Paradiso. His knowledge of the mountains is incredible & the 24hrs spent with him was really enjoyable. Federico was calm & collected & understood the pace, I learned some technical stuff also & it also helped me prepare for Mont Blanc in 2 weeks, anyone looking to book a trip in the alps or Italy, Federico is your guy, looking forward to doing more with him soon, thank you.

Federico is a very good and competent guide. He answered all of the questions we had and provided whatever training was possible in 2 days. He was helpful and patient with us since we are beginners. He provided enough guidance to be able to have an independent experience in the mountains taking into account our level. It was a very pleasant experience, would definitely recommend him for your mountaineering goals! :)
