Highlights

 
     

    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 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.

    Highly recommend this trip! We cannot praise our guide enough! Gigio was fantastic!! The trip up Gran Paradiso is a beautiful walk in a completely unspoilt valley. We stayed in the Chabod but at 2750m which had everything we needed with decent food. The climb turned out to be difficult due to the conditions but our guide did everything he could to get us to the top. Thoroughly enjoyable 2 days!
