The Gran Paradiso National Park in the Aosta Valley is a wonderful area for the ones in search of beautiful natural places, quietness and great spots for ski touring.

I like very much bringing my clients and friends there because:
– It’s a unique spot (especially la Vallée de Rhemes) for ski touring amateurs. During spring time, no helicopters are allowed;
– We stay in charming and very welcoming refuges like Rifugio Benevolo. Mathieu and Micol, two mountain fanatics, manage the refuge;
– There are several itineraries that we can adapt according to the ski level of the participants.

It is also the place where I come from. Therefore, I’m always very glad to guide here and let my clients discover this marvellous valley.

A few of the places where we might go are: Granta Parei, Pointe Calabre, Tsanteleina, Galicia, col Bassac Deré

I propose here a 3-day program, but we can of course adapt the duration based on your availability.

If you want to join me in this adventure, please contact me. I will be happy to explain everything you need to know. Do you prefer exploring the area during the summer? Then have a look at this hiking around the Gran Paradiso trip!
