Description

On this 1-week tour, you will have the chance to climb both Mont Blanc and the Gran Paradiso, two emblematic mountains of the Alps. 

Gran Paradiso (4,061m) is located between the Aosta Valley and the Piedmont in Italy. It lies within the Gran Paradiso National Park, right at the border with France. It is considered the less difficult ascent of the two mountains, so we will tackle it first. However, we should not underestimate it as there is some rocky terrain at its final section that requires certain mountaineering skills.

Very close to the Gran Paradiso peak is the highest mountain in the Alps, Mont Blanc. This majestic peak stands at 4,810 meters, located amongst the Veny and Ferret valleys in Italy, and the valleys of Arve and Montjoie in France. Reaching it summit is a real challenge, one that is rewarding with outstanding views from the top. 

It will take us 3 days to explore Grand Paradiso and reach its summit. We’ll pass by La Trasenta (3,609m) and keep advancing to the top of this magnificent mountain. Upon completion we’ll take 1 day to rest and recover.

Then, we’ll head to our next and final mission: Mont Blanc. It will take us 3 more days to stand at its top. On the way to the summit, I will show you some of my favorite spots in the area. And we’ll enjoy the most mesmerizing views.

Since this is a challenging trip, you’ll require an excellent physical condition. If you wish to join this adventure, contact us. We’ll guide you across these iconic peaks and we’ll share a wonderful time at the top of both!

With the huts on Mont Blanc closed and climbing suspended Peakshunter reworked our trip very quickly and swapped Mont Blanc with a program on Monte Rosa. With K suffering from altitude sickness on GP the Guide was brilliant in slowing the pace for her to make two summits on Monte Rosa and rather than risk problems by going higher on the last day rearranged the programme again and arranged a brilliant day on the Aiguille Marbrees. Thank you!

It was great! Unfortunately we had to cancel mt Blanc due to bad weather, but Gran Paradiso and Montviso (which we climed as an alternative for mt Blanc) were just great! Thanks again!
