Description

Come along this Grand Paradiso ascent, the highest mountain entirely within Italy. This constantly snowy peak is located to the south of the Mount Blanc Massif, inside the Paradiso National Park, in Val d’Aosta. A great option if you are looking to attempt a 4000 m summit in this region!

Gran Paradiso is also referred to as Grand Paradiso. It is a wonderful snow and glacier climb, with some rock sections near the peak. Our initial meeting point is usually Pont.

This particular route will take us through the legendary Vittorio Emmanuelle – Vittorio Emanuele – hut (2,735 m), and through the west ridge of Gran Paradiso.

As a part of this route, I will guide you across the Gran Paradiso Glacier. It includes rocky towers, moraines, hidden crevasses and a snowy ridge before reaching the summit (4,061 m, 13,323 ft). An amazing and rewarding challenge for any climber!

This ascent is quite accessible for a 4000 m mountain, suitable for both experienced and not-so-experienced climbers: from beginners to intermediates. Some mountaineers go on this tour as a way to gain acclimatization for higher summits, like Mont Blanc.

Groups on this program will be between 1 and 3 climbers.

Among other gear items you will need ice axe and crampons.

Robert was an incredible guide for our via ferrata experience! It was by far, our favorite day on our two week vacation in Italy. Robert is very experienced, and we felt completely safe and comfortable for the whole hike. We also left our hike with some incredible restaurant and hotel recommendations from him! If we make it back to the dolomites one day, we will definitely be booking another trip with Robert!

Very beautiful trip, with several different interesting types of challenges (need for snow shoes, crampons, varying temperatures, etc.) - We did the ascent in May which still means a lot of snow making the trip quite tough (you need to be in decent shape and have a some experience to enjoy the trip).

We had wonderful days and a lot fun. All arrangments were perfect and easy! Our guide Paolo has been not only an excellent mountain and skiing guide but also he is very nice and empatic person who shared his love and knowledge of the Aosta valley! Wonderful days and skitouring, well organised, we will come again!

We did a 1 day Ferrata with Marica. We've both never climbed a Ferrata before but we are both good hikers. We enjoyed our trip very much and you don't need to be a climber. Marica took good care of us and she is very informative with the local geography and history. We felt very safe with her. If you are traveling near the Dolomite and want to try something a bit out of your comfort zone, I highly recommend doing a ferrata especially with Marica. We did both ferrata ra gusela nuvolau and ferrata-averau. It took us about 6 hours.

Our trip was excellent with PeaksHunter guides. Great communication from Sylvia and our guides Gabriele and Paulo were excellent. They were patient with us, had great knowledge and prioritised our safety. Three of our group managed to summit Grand Paradiso which was an amazing experience with incredible views. The climb and descent in the second day is not to be underestimated. Very good fitness needed!
