The Gran Paradiso (4,061m) is the smallest of the 4000 metre peaks I offer trips to, but that doesn’t make it any less spectacular. One of the highest peaks in the Italian Graian Alps, the Gran Paradiso is the only mountain over 4000 metres that has the entirety of its summit within Italy. The national park where the peak is located is also named after it, as well.
The view of the Gran Paradiso is amazing from any vantage point. But the view from the summit of this mountain is absolutely stunning. And from its pinnacle you will immediately see how much it has earned its name, as you will be able to see a great deal of the gorgeous Alps, including the nearby, legendary Mont Blanc (4,810m).
The Gran Paradiso is considered one of the easiest of the Alps’ 4000 meter peaks to climb. However some mountaineering experience is needed because the final ascent has some rocky terrain.
On day 1 we will spend 2 to 3 hours walking up to the Refuge Vittorio Emanuele (2,584m). On day 2 we will make the exciting climb to the summit of this beautiful mountain before making our way back down. The climbing time should take between 8 to 10 hours, including the descent.
The Gran Paradiso is a magnificent mountain. And because of the relative ease that comes with climbing it, its magnificence is readily accessible. I know that over the course of 2 days you will come to appreciate and admire this peak just like the countless others who have scaled it before you.
Please send me a message if you want to join me to the summit of this amazing peak.
I also offer a 2 day climb of Mont Velan located on the border between Italy and Switzerland.
