Description

This trip is for climbers who are ready to challenge themselves and want to take their mountaineering skills one step further. Come and join me on this Gran Paradiso 2-day guided ascent in the Graian Alps!

During this 2-day expedition, we’ll summit the most famous Italian 4,000 meter mountain. Set in the beautiful Paradiso National Park, this mountain is in the heart of the Graian Alps in Italy, between the Aosta Valley and Piedmont regions.

On our first day, we’ll enjoy a 2-3 hour walk up to the Refuge Vittorio Emanuele (2,584m). At this welcoming mountain hut, we’ll rest and get ready for our ascent on the following day. Then, the next morning we’ll start the ascent all the way up to the famous Gran Paradiso summit. The entire journey will take us between 8 to 10 hours. 

Climbing Gran Paradiso presents no particular technical difficulty. However, although this mountain is considered one of the most accesible 4,000 meter peaks to climb in the Alps, all participants will need to have some mountaineering experience. Furthermore,  it’s essential to be in good physical shape. This trip is suitable for intermediate and advanced climbers. 

If you are ready to take on this 2-day guided ascent in the Graian Alps, then request to book this trip and get ready for a experience you’ll never forget!

About the guide

I'm an IFMGA mountain guide from Romania and a member of the Austrian Mountain Guides Association (VOBS) and the East European Mountain Guides Association(EEMGA).

My passions are alpinism, rock and ice climbing and ski touring. Over the last decade and a half I have climbed and skied all corners of the World, spent numerous seasons guiding in the Himalayas, New Zealand, Alps and the Carpathians Mountains.

My primary concern as your guide is your safety. With that comes a great deal of fun, learning and engaging in experiences that will be memorable for a lifetime. I hope to have the opportunity to climb with you and help you achieve climbs, summits and experiences not yet imagined!

I have a very strict policy on guide-to-guest ratios for all types of terrain and these are clearly explained prior to engagement. For multi pitch climbs it is usually 1:1 and it never exceeds 1:2. For single pitch venues (especially on instructional outings) it never exceeds 1:4. Higher ratios are possible with the hiring of additional guides and only following prior arrangements. For treks and ski tours the ratios are more generous but depending on the terrain and/or the group’s experience.

I am comfortable in using for guiding and teaching purposes the following languages: English and Romanian.
Contact me for availability, rates or to customize a program to help you achieve your climbing goals.
