Highlights

 
     

    Reaching the summit of a 4-thousander is a goal for many mountaineers. I propose you to join me and summit Gran Paradiso (4061m), in the heart of the Alps. 

    The Gran Paradiso summit is within the reach of good hikers with some prior experience in the use of crampons. Being in Italy will allow you to enjoy the Italian lifestyle. Indeed, the warm welcome and good meals are one of the highlights of this program!

    In addition to Gran Paradiso, we will summit Tresenta, near the Vittorio Emmanuelle refuge.

    This short mountaineering excursion is totally doable in one weekend. But it’s also a chance of prolonging your stay in the Alps.

    Besides, getting there is very easy as I can pick you up at the TGV station in Oulx (although you can also get to Pont Valsavarenche on your own).

    I particularly like this program for the following reasons:
    – the ascent crosses a glacial environment
    – the incredible panorama of the Alpine massif with a particularly mild weather
    – the chance to travel light and get great food at the refuges

    Tempted to get to the top of famous Gran Paradiso? Then please get in touch with me indicating your preferred dates! If you are a group let me know as I can adapt the program to suit your needs. Of course Gran Paradiso is also great in the winter, join me for some ski touring there!
