Description

When people think of the Alps, they imagine mountains, summits and glaciers… but there is also wildlife. Animals live and move in this restrictive environment and must adapt to living in these mountains. Gran Paradiso Natural Park is a fantastic place to observe them. We will spend 2 of the 4-5 days doing so.

I propose here a hiking and photography journey revolving around wildlife in the Alps. During these days we will try to see alpine fauna including chamois, ibex, marmots and some bird species. Moreover, if we are lucky, we might be able to find other animals.

Day 1 : Welcome

You will get to your hotel and get settled in the late afternoon.

Day 2 : Refuge

We leave towards Italy for two days in the Gran Paradiso Park to encounter wildlife. We will go up to the refuge with our backpacks, looking for animals and taking pictures. We spend the night at the refuge.

Day 3 : Return to France

This new photography day will be in the mountain environment, wherever the presence of animals takes us. We take the direction of the valley before returning to France.

Day 4 : Ibex

Today in our itinerary we attempt a new approach to the ibex and, why not, meeting the bearded vulture!!!

Day 5 : Marmot

Familiar and friendly emblem of the mountain, the marmot is a small mammal that only thinks of eating and playing with its fellows. So stay tuned!!!

Day 6: Departure

After breakfast, we say goodbye and take home with us pictures of animals… and some landscapes.

The highlights of this trip are the following:

  • Professional supervision
  • Excellent field knowledge
  • Small group
  • Supervision: professional mountain photographer

I invite you to contact me if you wish to discuss about this beautiful program that takes place partly in the Gran Paradiso National Park. I would be very glad to share my passions with you: photography and the mountain.
