    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.

    We were guided by PeaksHunter in a Gran Paradiso ascent, and it was memorable! We just would like to thank Silvia and Elis for the wonderful trip we\'ve experienced with their guidance. The communication and organization before and during the trip was clear and detailed. We felt completely supported and safe accompanied by Silvia and Elis. Thanks for clarify all our questions and help us very kindly mainly considering our lack of experience in trips like that. At supermarket, the ride to the park, the lunch before we start, during the trail, at meals in the mountain, at all these moments we had great company and support. This was our first ascent in this altitude and Silvia and Elis demonstrated be professionals very experienced and high skilled. We appreciate the way they enjoy the nature in a respectful and safe manner. They were attentive to the minor details regarding our security and also our experience. We are lucky to have had you as our guides. The best photo we took it is not enough to express how good is the feeling to be at this point in the mountains and appreciate pure nature. We saw landscapes completely new for our eyes in a memorable experience. Silvia and Elis, thank you very much. We really appreciate our time in Gran Paradiso and we feel lucky to be guided by you. André and Vânia

    We had a great experience with Giulia on Gran Paradiso. Ended up climbing La Trescenta and only doing the glacier below Gran Paradiso - my decision - the kids were not as strong as I had hoped and the 11 hours for the full summit would not have worked. However we had a great few days. Can’t wait to do another trip and will absolutely ask for your help again.
