Would you like to climb one of the most beautiful and classic 4000-meter peaks in the Alps? Then join me on this 4-day mountaineering tour and I will guide you to the summit of Gran Paradiso (4061m). 

The Gran Paradiso is part of the Grain Alps. It lies in the Gran Paradiso National Park, between the Aosta Valley and Piedmont. It is the highest mountain entirely within Italy.

This 4-day tour is perfect for those who have a basic physical condition and want to to prepare themselves correctly to ascend the mountain. Although the Gran Paradiso does not present specific technical difficulties, it is still  a high mountain environment. Gran Paradiso is very often climbed by mountaineers who want to prepare and acclimatize for a higher mountain ascent, like Mont Blanc.

This trip is also a great opportunity to discover the heart of the beautiful Gran Paradiso National Park. During the tour, we will stay in traditional mountain huts, and we may have the chance to observe alpine animals, such as ibex and chamois, on our way to the refuges.

We will meet in Courmayeur on the first day, and have a 3-4 hour  acclimatization walk. The goal will be established according to the weather conditions and the group level. On the second day, I will take you up to a first easy walk on the glacier. Moving with rope, ice axe and crampons, we will become familiar with the typical environment of the high mountain, and also increase our acclimatization.

On the third day of the tour, we will go from Pont Valseverenche (1960m) to the Chabod Hut (2750m). Finally, on the fourth day, we will get to the summit of Gran Paradiso (4061m), where we will enjoy a spectacular view of the surrounding landscape and mountains.  This will be the longest day, with a total of 8 hours, climbing 1311 meters up and with a descent of 2100m. You can check the itinerary below.

About the Guide

 
 

I have been working as a mountain guide for more than ten years, and I still love my job very much! The great mountains of the Alps are my favorite playground: Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, Monte Rosa and Gran Paradiso are my favorite destinations.

Great summer ascents and magnificent ski mountaineering tours in winter and spring.
