Description

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.
