Gran Paradiso ski mountaineering tour

This amazing ski mountaineering tour takes you to the summit of Gran Paradiso (4061m), in the Gran Paradiso National Park, enjoying great runs and a high mountain environment. Giancarlo, an IFMGA-certified guide, takes you on this fantastic adventure.


5 Days

Mar, Apr




If you are looking for an exciting ski mountaineering tour, join me on this 5-day trip in the heart of the Gran Paradiso National Park. We will explore an extremely wild and isolated location in the Alps, reaching the summit of the beautiful Gran Paradiso (4061m) and enjoying incredible runs.

The Gran Paradiso lies between the Aosta Valley and the Piedmont region, in the northwest of Italy, very close to the French border. I will take you on a fantastic 5-day ski mountaineering adventure, only for skiers with a good level and previous ski mountaineering experience.

We will enjoy a high mountain environment, staying in different traditional mountain huts during the tour, like the Vittorio Sella, Chabod, Vittorio Emmanuele and Pontese refuges.

Starting from Valnontey on the first day, we will be in out in the mountains, climbing and skiing for about 5 to 7 hours each day. You can check the detailed itinerary below.

On the third day of our tour, we will reach the Gran Paradiso summit (4061m). This beautiful mountain is the tallest in the Gran Paradiso National Park and the only 4000-metre mountain located completely in Italian territory.

Climbing the Gran Paradiso is a beautiful and classic tour in the Alps. Although it is considered one of the least difficult 4000- meter peaks to climb, it still has an ascent of 1300 meters and it offers a true high mountain environment. 

So if you want to join me on this great ski mountaineering adventure, send me a request. Book your trip and let’s start planning this amazing tour together.  If you don’t have much time available, check out my 3-day ski mountaineering tour around Matterhorn.

Mountain 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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
