Description

When one thinks about climbing mountains in Europe, there are certain peaks that are always on the top of the list. Mont Blanc, and Gran Paradiso are definitely top choices. And this trip combines them both!

Gran Paradiso (4,061m) is located between the Aosta Valley and the Piedmont in Italy. And it lies within the Gran Paradiso National Park, right at the border with France. It is considered the less difficult ascent. But there is a 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. However, the views we’ll get from the top of it will make it completely worth it!

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 our energies.

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 do and wish to join this adventure, contact me. I’ll guide you across these iconic peaks and we’ll share a wonderful time at the top of both!
