Highlights

 
     

    If you’ve always dreamed of climbing a four-thousander, Gran Paradiso (4061m) is your perfect chance. This beautiful mountain in the heart of Gran Paradiso National Park is a great opportunity for a first ascent. 

    Gran Paradiso National Park is located between the Aosta and the Piedmont regions in Italy. It is among the most famous national parks in the country. This is due both to its amazing scenery and its rich flora and fauna.

    We’ll take advantage of all this during our 2-day ascent. For the night, we’ll be staying at the Rifugio Vittorio Emanuele II. The Italian ambiance will be an extra bonus! And, from there, we’ll go for the summit on the second day.

    Although the summit is over 4000 meters, the Gran Paradiso ascent is technically easy and is even suitable for experienced hikers. You just need to be in a good physical condition to tackle this climb.

    I can take a maximum of 3 people on this ascent, so bring friends or family along. Contact me now and we’ll start planning your visit!

    I also offer other guided ascents for beginners in the Alps. Make sure you check out my Aiguille du Tour climb. It is also a great experience for beginner mountaineers!

    About the Guide

     
     

    The Jura massif is an ideal place to learn and grow your experience in alpine techniques. I practice mountaineering, ski touring and ice climbing in the winter. I am also located very close to the Swiss and French alpine massifs.

    First, I started as a ski rescuer. My passion for skiing and climbing helped me discover the classic routes in the mythical summits of the Alps. The first mountain courses I went on with friends as a guide - which I did with a lot of effort, doubts and perseverance - were much needed to build my experience. Still, they also gave me a lot of joy, and I was able to pursue them while laughing and creating beautiful moments shared.

    My experience and terrain knowledge will allow you to move safely and enjoy your time, without a promise of the summit but of sharing a privileged and unique moment in the mountains.

    Finally, I'm a fully certified IFMGA mountain guide.

    Ben is a great guide and did a wonderful job with our group. He\'s patient and worked very well with us. I\'d highly recommend him to other groups.

    We had booked Ben for a single day and weather did not play nice: rain in the valley, snowfall and high winds on the summits. Hence, we were locked down to a single slope. Ben still made this an awesome day with lots of off-piste dives wherever possible, some avalanche training in between and good advice and powder exercises as he\'s simply an excellent skier. On top of that he is a great person and also available as guide in Chamonix and 4Vallee. Full recommendation!
