Gran Paradiso, 2-day Ascent in the Aosta Valley

Alessandro, a UIAGM certified guide, wants to lead you on a 2 day mountaineering adventure to the summit of the Gran Paradiso peak in the Aosta Valley of the Italian Alps.



2 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




  • Spend 2 days climbing to the summit of the Gran Paradiso peak.
  • Enjoy the beautiful views of the Aosta Valley.
  • Ideal for beginners looking to climb their first 4000 meter peak.


The Gran Paradiso peak (4,061m) is a fantastic, gorgeous mountain in the Aosta valley, in the Alps of Italy. And on this 2 day expedition, I would like to guide you to the summit of this extravagant peak.

Positioned high in the western Alps, Gran Paradiso is one of the more accessible peaks to climb in the famed European mountain range. Thus making it a great climb for less experienced climbers looking to scale a 4000 plus meter peak.

Our trip will begin in the refuge parking lot in Pont – Valsavarenche. From there we will climb to either the Vittorio Emanuele refuge or the Federico Chabod refuge, depending on the availability of the refuges and the glacier conditions. At the selected refuge we will enjoy some dinner before resting for the night.

On the second day of this trip, early in the morning, after breakfast, which we will eat at approximately 4:00 am, we will make our way to the summit of the Gran Paradiso. The climb and subsequent descent will take between 8 and 12 hours. And while you will be very tired at the end of the day, I can promise you the views and experience will be unforgettable.

While this trip is ideal for beginners, it is important that participants are in good physical condition.

To climb the Gran Paradiso is to enjoy one of the best climbs in the Aosta Valley. If you would like to join me on this 2 day adventure, please send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you.

Would you like to do some climbing in the Swiss Alps? Then come and join me on this full day ascent of the amazing West Breithorn peak near the famous Matterhorn.

About the guide

I was born in 1981 and live in the Aosta Valley, surrounded by the wonderful peaks of my region.

I started guiding in 2016.

I like all mountain activities: freeride skiing and ice climbing in winter, ski mountaineering in spring, mountaineering in the high mountain in summer and rock climbing whenever possible!

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
