A certified mountain guide wants to lead you on a wonderful 6 day hiking tour around the sensational Gran Paradiso mountain in the Alps of Italy.

Not specified


6 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug




For 6 amazing days I would like to lead you on a hiking journey around the majestic Gran Paradiso mountain (4,061m).

Gran Paradiso is an incredible peak located in the Italian Alps. Standing mighty in the Mont Blanc massif, it is the highest peak in the massif within the borders of Italy. However, the mountain itself is just one part of this amazing adventure.

Throughout this trip, you will get to trek to the summits of other peaks including the Punta Rossa (3,630m). You will get to traverse through glaciers including the Grand Neyron glacier and the Teleccio glacier. You will also get to traverse the Col Lauson.

During the trip’s daily hikes you will see a great deal of the natural beauty that surrounds the Gran Paradiso. And at the end of each day we will make our way to a different comfortable mountain refuge. All of the refuges, from the Vittorio Sella refuge (2,548m) to the Pontese refuge (2,200m) are at altitudes above 2,000 meters. As a result, you will get to enjoy some spectacular views, even from your resting points!

Since this is a hiking expedition, you don’t have to worry about many technical aspects. Hence making this trip very accessible. However, you should be in good physical condition because we will be hiking from 4 to 10 hours every day.

So if you want to scale a great mountain, while enjoying the landscape around it, just send me a request. I would be happy to guide up and around the Gran Paradiso.

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
