The Gran Paradiso / Le Grand Paradis (4.061 meters) is the highest mountain entirely within Italy and a constant snowy companion on the Southern alpine skyline from the Mont Blanc Massif. Often climbed as a poor weather alternative to Mont Blanc the Paradiso has much more to recommend than just it’s fine southern alpine climate.

Lying in the Gran Paradiso National Park, a charming high alpine area set above the Italian Valsavarenche & Vallée d’Aoste. In early summer vibrantly colourful wild flowers and jostling Ibex give a spring in the step for the pleasant walk to the hospitable & lively Italian mountain hut from where the summit climb begins…

I personally recommend to stay the first night at the Chabod refuge, go to the summit the day after and come back passing by Vittorio Emmanuel II refuge. This makes a traverse rather than just a round trip. The Gran Paradisio is an accessible 4.000 meters mountain and can be done by less experienced mountaineers.

The pictures uploaded here have been taken in August 2014 with a group of 8 Belgians. They all successfully reached the summit with a clear bleu sky and a beautiful 360° view on all the most famous summits of the Alps.

Get in touch with me and let’s go up there together!


- RIFUGIO VITTORIO EMMANUELE : One of the two refuges where we will sleep or have lunch the day of the ascent - REFUGIO CHABOD: One of the two refuges where we will sleep before (or have lunch the day of) the ascent of Gran Paradisio; I personally recommend to stay there the night before the ascent and come back through Rifugio Vittorio Emmanuel with a stop for lunch...they have delicious pasta.
