Highlights

  • Ascend one of the most prominent peaks in the Italian national park.
  • Take in the breathtaking mountainous views of the western Alps.
  • Take advantage of having a fully-qualified guide by your side.

Description

Sandwiched between the piercing peaks of Gran Paradiso and Ciarforon is the dramatic pyramid-shaped mountain of Tresenta.

As part of the Gran Paradiso group of mountains, it is located in the first-class Aosta Valley in the western Alps.

Tresenta, which rises to 3,609 meters above sea level, stands at the heart of the Gran Paradiso National Park.

The Italian national park was originally created to protect the Alpine ibex from poachers, given that the area was the hunting ground for the former king Emmanuel II.

What makes this ascent great is that it is suitable for beginners, and is the perfect peak to climb for those seeking their first real-life challenge, before moving on to more demanding challenges in the park, such as the Gran Paradiso peak.

Tresenta also offers boundless panoramic views of the surrounding mountainside that are spectacular.

We will begin our ascent by first climbing to the Vittorio Emanuele hut, which rests at 2,735 meters above sea level. The hut is immersed in the isolated mountainside of the national park.

Get in touch now to reserve your place on an action-packed 1-day ascent of Tresenta, located in the Gran Paradiso National Park.

Everyone at explore share and peakshunter were great about putting a trip together for me. It was the end of the climbing season in the alps and I only had a few days but they all pitched in and figured out something I could do . They have great communication and the guide was awesome

The trip included a climb on Gran Paradiso and Mont Blanc by Italian guides. Prior to the trip, I had asked twice if my trip could be rescheduled to the following year because we had heard of safety concerns on Mont Blanc and my main climbing partner was not able to come so my wife was filling in (and she did not have experience climbing big mountains). I did not get a reply on those questions, so rather than lose the money entirely, we decided me must try. Long story short, she got altitude sickness on Gran Paradiso so Month Blanc was definitely out. PeaksHunter staff informed me that not only could I not get a refund (which is understandable), I could not reschedule the Mont Blanc portion to the following season (a question I had earlier asked and not been answered). If you are looking to climb Mont Blanc, I would highly suggest looking at French only guides, as there are a LOT of hidden fees with PeaksHunter and their policies are not at all customer friendly. To be fair, I should note that PeaksHunter showed excellent hospitality with scheduling rooms and alternate plans for us, but in the end, I paid for a climb on Mont Blanc, and even though PeaksHunter wanted to reschedule my climb by moving a couple of days for weather reasons, they refused to work with me on moving to the next season which I think is completely unreasonable. Last, I would like to say that our guide, Paolo was AMAZING in how he looked after my wife and got her safely off the mountain when she suffered from altitude sickness. I hope the company gave him some of the money they kept from refusing to reschedule my Mont Blanc portion of the climb.

All the booking went well with good preparation emails and information. It was a little late that we received the last update that we meet the guide in the hut, bet everything went well. The guide was very kind en helped us in the right pace to the top. The last part we went, but we go very fast downhill and the group wasn't able to walk together anymore. Overall it was a wonderful trip with great views. Thank al lot!!.

My summit attempt with Peakshunter was splendid. Jacopo was a fantastic guide and made me feel safe during the entire attempt. He also shared some great knowledge about climbing and mountains in general. Unfortunately we had to turn back before the summit due to the weather conditions, which was the right decision considering the circumstances. Peakshunter provided all relevant information and were always willing to answer questions if I had any. The first contact with the guide was also seamless and smooth. I will most definitely pick Peakshunter if I go for another attempt next year and highly recommend their services!

The trek to the summit of Gran Paradiso was challenging and full of excellent scenery. In general, it was an enjoyable experience... the admin support, the planning and the equipment provided were all great and the Refuge Chabod was a brilliant set up. In order to help with future successful expeditions, it is VERY IMPORTANT that the guide provides a clear briefing at the start, then regularly listens to the clients, and also needs to be willing to adjust the pace when required. We felt we were being raced up and down the mountain as quickly as possibly, purely to suit the guide, without having sufficient breaks across the day to have the necessary water and nutrition and to catch a breath to simply enjoy the views from time to time. As a result of this desire to just 'get it done', there were moments when it felt unsafe and this forcefulness made the climbers feel uneasy and hustled on a number of occasions across the two days. These trips must focus on the needs and desires of the customer, especially as we are not familiar with this specific mountain. However, overall, it is a trip i would definitely recommend. There's a lot of ground to cover in two days but it can be done and is worth it. A beautiful summit and a stunning part of the world. Thanks.

He had a really strong pace going up but we keep up with him the whole time. His English was good and we had a lot of fun! With him you feel confident to climb any mountain.

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!

I had 2 guides and I am impressed with their professionalism! I learned a lot about the mountains in general and as far as climbing is concerned. As for the organization, I am in two minds. They have worked hard to get me a guide, but would all that be necessary if the base were better developed? As for the bill, I had booked for 2 days of training, which I got, and 3 days of climbing Mont Blanc. That turned into 1.5 days and the bill remained the same. I don't feel good about that. All in all, it is a very expensive undertaking to climb Mont Blanc.

I used explore-share based on relatively good reviews. Sadly, my experience with them is very inpersonal and not good. Trip advertised initially as available, followed by direct email from company providing it, trip is not guaranteed as sleep in a hut is not confirmed. Few days before the flight, trip was adjusted (cancelled/ rescheduled/ changed 5 times). I understand and fully appreciate that these trips are hard to arrange and you are not providing them directly. But as a company advertising (for extra fee) them for others, should take a bit of responsibility. I found upsetting to receive generic emails, asking for review on trip which did not happened. No response to my emais, what do they actually means by those emails. Equally refund took approximately 5 days. I was not planning to write any review, but I am very disappointed by their poor communication. I would not use them again!

It was a magnificent and sublime trip for me to climb the Mont Blanc via the Italian normal route! I am extremely thankful and happy that the Guide made it possible for me to make this dream come true. During the trip I felt very safe and supported as much as I could only wish. I also had very good support by PeaksHunter team before and after the trip. Thank you for everything regarding this awesome trip!

Had a fine trip to Grand Paradiso with guide Elis from Peaks Hunters. The speed were quite high but good to be tested before mont blanc. Elis and us self evaluated that the succesrate to summit MB would be low so eighter an alternative climb or convert the trip for next year at French side. I understood we could convert the tour and get an voucher to be used next year. Contacted Silvia as well day after to comfirm that if we could get a voucer we then would like to cancel. Silvia agreed to send voucer day after. Now to day they unfortunately reply to the cancellation policy (no refund ). A very disappointing turn around, in that case we would ofcause have taken an alternative tour now when we had vacation. Br Jesper Pedersen

Unfortunately the guide did not speak English fluently enough for us to have a good constructive dialog. We got more information from listening in on other guides when they informed their clients. It halted our possibility to plan and adjust our trip underway. The dialog between us, Explore-share and PeaksHunter was at times confusing and created some uncertainties regarding responsibility, payments and information. We will in the future try to go directly to a provider instead of going through a third party.

This was, hands down, one of the coolest and most difficult outdoor experiences I have ever had. It was visually stunning. The ancient mountains that surround you on the Vallee Blanche are absolutely breathtaking, but there is good reason to be cautious. Do not ride the Vallee Blanche without a dedicated and experienced guide. You must be in very good physical condition to take this trip on a snowboard- skiing is a bit easier because you can traverse flat land better. You must be able to handle rugged terrain, and have pinpoint accuracy to cross ice bridges between crevices. Altitude, deep snow, unexpected weather and massive crevices are just a few serious hazards that require true alpine expertise. Our guide, Paulo, and his team were incredible. They were knowledgeable, friendly, and their communication skills were impeccable. The day that we were suppose to ride the valley turned out to be dangerously cold and windy but our guide was on top of the weather the entire time. We changed our original go-date to another one with safer conditions. As someone with a little bit of climbing experience, I truly appreciated our guides priority on safety & weather conditions; trust me, you wouldn’t want to be on Europe’s highest summit in the middle of a storm. We wound up going the next day after the storm. The powder was so deep that it was impassable on a snowboard at some points. The ski poles that we rented to traverse flat land, sunk all the way down into the powder, and there was no resistance to push yourself forward. On several occasions, our guide had to attach a rope to my harness and pull me out of a powder-jam. Paulo guided us safely down the mountain, taking breaks to rest and for water and food. At the bottom, we grabbed a few beers and nothing ever tasted so good. Hire these guys, you will be thankful that you did!!!

Hi, good service from explore share and peaks hunter, only some miscommunication on 2 or 3 days program, due to bad communication between you both. The guide was OK, friendly although non very experienced in the practice of pédagogie and communication, especially before couloir des Goûter s, there can be better briefing on security and also in general on the whole expedition. But he can grow by learning some coaching lessons. We did not do the final ascension due to bad weather, a proposal and financial compensation for 2nd attempt would have been welcome.6/10.can do better.

As I wrote before (check the emails) there was a problem in communication between the square (client, explore share, peaks hunters and the guide) after I booked the mont blanc in 2 days I thought that it would be a good idea to do also an acclimatization day. I send 2-3 emails to explore share I text in what's app about that and they replied after 2-3 days... The automated text from what's app was disappointing and made me angry because I asked something and I got the reply would you like to ask something... Also by email they asked me about my experience which I had send like 1 month ago about the other trip... Finally I canceled the acclimatization day because of that and I feel sorry for peaks hunters because they have already booked a guide... I am not sure if I would recommend explore share to anyone.... Instead of being cool and relaxed I was feeling nervous checking my phone for an apply during my vocation... NO!

Hi everybody. It is very difficult from me to give you review. The guide was not from Peakshunters, but from Guide Alpine Bormio. I had a big problem with my stomack, so we decided to go to Piz Monteratsch. The weather was terrible : very cold, snowy and foggy, so it was fortunate not to be in Biancograt and I cannot say what was the rating of this route. But generally, guide Federico was nice, he had patiency with me and my problems. But he was with me only 1,5 day, not two, so what about any discount for me? And special thanks to Gauthier, he was interested about me and my preferencies. Have a nice time!

Due to Explore-Share’s last minute changes the confirmed date and places of trips (apart of weather condition) couldn’t succeed the initial confirmed and planned trip and wasn’t impressed by their alternative plan which gave me no choice but to accept it. Plus Explore-Share didn’t informed me in advance important rule and regulations at Refugio Guide Hut where they located me for 24 hours for waiting the next guide. It resulted that i have been alarmingly berated by security/rescue guard when i came back to hut after short walk for breathing fresh air. Guard yelled at me badly that i shouldn’t go out for walk alone without guide (who left right after brought me there), that he was worry and called police, rescue helicopter, that i made huge trouble for them. I haven’t seen any police or rescue helicopters there, but understood that this was their way of “warning”. It really shocked me and i was very upset, repeatedly telling to guard “ sorry for trouble, but unfortunately, i didn’t know i can’t go out of hut, no one warned or let me know in advance about their rules”. I enjoyed the mountains, hiking and climbing rocks and specially was thankful for guide Marco, who was appointed by Explore-Share to guide me for their alternative plan.

My friend and I had a great time summiting Mt Blanc! The guide was great and very supportive and flexible the whole time. A couple of things to consider 1. Make sure you leave at least 1 day available after your trip in case you need to move the dates around, we almost didn't make it due to bad weather but were able to be flexible. There are lots of fun things to do in Chamonix if you don't need the day. 2. The packing list needs some improvement especially to consider females - I would bring an extra layer just in case, thicker socks for summit day, ski goggles, hand warmers, very thick gloves, maybe even a foil blanket. Make sure you bring a thermos not a water bladder as it will freeze (we made this mistake!)

We did our first 4000m peak with Gigio from Peak Hunters and it was a (literally) breathtaking experience! To everyone who wants to start their adventure with high altitude- this is a great place to start. Keep in mind that is still challenging to your body due to the altitude. I wish we did more acclimatisation. Overall it was perfectly organised and adjusted to us. They kept us safe, informed and well prepared. Thank you so much and look forward to more adventures! ps. Explore share gives good overview of what is possible but at points it was a bit confusing weather I already booked and who am I talking to. I guess just point to improve I the interface on the platform.

The whole package was extremely well put together, and Silvia and Gio were good hosts. I would have liked there to be more learning opportunities during the trip - climbing and trekking techniques, orienteering, technical movements etc. Whilst we achieved the objective of going up and down, I didnt feel like there was much else added around this. A programme of additional skills would be nice, Other than that, would highly recommend!

Great guide, but unfortunately our trip was cut short because of the weather so we only climbed 2 days instead of 4. But that’s life. The one thing that I didn’t like so much was the portal that you have to go through in order to book the trip. It’s not very personal. I’d rather deal with one person from the start whose name you know and whom you have direct contact with. But overall I was happy with my trip and Claudio and Sylvia did a great job.

Silvia and Elis were attentive, kind and professionally fully prepared to help us reach a great experience of discovery and safety. For sure the moment would not be the same without our guides. We feel grateful and lucky to have their support and company. Elis, Silvia, thanks for taking us beyond.

I want to post my review on Peaks Hunter Mountain Guides ( see below).I climbed Mont Blanc in September 2019 with Peak Hunter Mountain Guides. The service I received was excellent. They provided me with all the information I requested and more. Scheduling was clear and everything went as it was planned. My guide, Luigi Gagliardi, is a highly skilled professional. He did a great job taking me to the summit, providing me with all instructions and taking a great care of me. I learnt a lot from him. He is also a great person.

We were guided by PeaksHunter in a Gran Paradiso ascent, and it was memorable! We just would like to thank Silvia and Elis for the wonderful trip we've experienced with their guidance. The communication and organization before and during the trip was clear and detailed. We felt completely supported and safe accompanied by Silvia and Elis. Thanks for clarify all our questions and help us very kindly mainly considering our lack of experience in trips like that. At supermarket, the ride to the park, the lunch before we start, during the trail, at meals in the mountain, at all these moments we had great company and support. This was our first ascent in this altitude and Silvia and Elis demonstrated be professionals very experienced and high skilled. We appreciate the way they enjoy the nature in a respectful and safe manner. They were attentive to the minor details regarding our security and also our experience. We are lucky to have had you as our guides. The best photo we took it is not enough to express how good is the feeling to be at this point in the mountains and appreciate pure nature. We saw landscapes completely new for our eyes in a memorable experience. Silvia and Elis, thank you very much. We really appreciate our time in Gran Paradiso and we feel lucky to be guided by you.

It started good, everything felt great all the way to Tete Rousse Hut were we did sleep. We was not tired after the walk. When we arrived I did pay again for as stayng there even though I did know that I already done it. That whas both me and the guide fault. Because he did tell me to pay and some part of me then though that; if they dont think I have paid, maby I haven't. Insted of showing them the mail I got. Did not get a recipt either so thats 200€ I will never see again I know. At 2 in the night at breakfast I was very exited about moving on. But at the table over guide teld us that it not was a good idea for as to try to take the top. I was very surprised about this. Because everyting felt so good the first day. He told us just because we did not have a reservation at Gouter hut he did not want as to walk down the 80m wall the same day. But way we did not get the chance to show what we can do I wonder? I guess he thought that we had to little experience and he did not want to take the risk. Still I did enjoy the ~24 hours up there and I did learn how to climb mont blanc. We want to try it again but next time we are quite sure we will hike it in 3 days and no guide so we can try it on over ones.

One thing I was not happy with that l had to book Horinlihut when I was already in Switzerland. As a tourist, it's not easy to give a call since I didn't have a phone. Honrlihut had a cookie problem, so I could book online. Why don't you give a price that includes hut? then you book for a client? It would be more appreciated. Apart from that, I had a wonderful guide! Thanks so much indeed.

Incredible adventure. The contact and the organisation with Peaks Hunter was perfect. The experience with the Guide (Claudio) was also perfect. Very professional guide, perfect French speaker. It was a pleasure to spend those two days with him. Reaching the summit without him would have been impossible. (Do not believe in the Youtube videos over the Lion Ridge, they are not a good representation of the journey, much harder but way more nice) Thank you Peaks Hunter.

A great and wonderful journey. The contact with Peaks Hunter and their guide Alberto was perfect. Despite no one has been able to reach the summit of Mont Blanc by this way during the last 3 days before our climb, Alberto has succeed to open the way to give us the opportunity to reach the summit. Very versatile, experienced and funny it has been a pleasure to climb the Mont Blanc by this route with Alberto during those two days. Wilder and and less crowded than the Gouter route, if you are well trained and not afraid by some snow/ice walls it is a great adventure, gorgeous landscapes. I recommend to descend by the Goûter Route, a bit longer in distance but shorter in duration and less complex. you will get the chance to see new landscapes and to view from where you have started in the morning. Great journey, thank you Peaks Hunter !

We had a great experience with Giulia on Gran Paradiso.

However we had a great few days. Can’t wait to do another trip and will absolutely ask for your help again.

I give Peakshunter Mountain Guides a 5 star Review. I come from America and I was given holiday on short notice so I sent out some climbing inquiries on Explore-Share. Silvia from Peakshunter was the first guide to respond to my request and she was able to coordinate an awesome adventure for two days for me. I went in with no expectations since I don't know that region that well. I relied on their judgement. My guide was Elis and he was phenomenal and patient with me. They answered all my questions prior to the trip and made my experience in the Mont Blanc region unforgettable. I could not be happier with my experience with Peakshunter. Thank you Silvia and Elis!

My guide Gigio was fantastic - couldn’t ask for a better guide to help me get to my first 4000m peak! Since the lift was closed for the season we hiked up from Cervinia at 2000m rather than starting the climb from 3500m which made it somewhat more interesting and taxing. My only complaint is the price: 960 euros for the guided climb plus 185 euros for two nights with half board at the mountain hut is a bit steep to say the least. I can only hope Gigio gets a significant portion of that.

I have only amazing things to say about Elis and Silvia/Peak Hunters. From the moment I made an online enquiry they have been nothing but incredible and supportive to help me achieve my goal of reaching the summit of the Breithorn. Silvia spent time on the phone to me talking about everything from the best day to climb to accommodation and how to get to Cirvinia. As I am backpacking I had every little of the required equipment ant they went out of their way to source clothes items that couldn’t be rented, and met with me the day before the climb to go to the shops and to check my gear. Elis then took over for the climb and was incredible also; experienced and knowledgeable it was easy to be in his company and feel safe in his hands. He’s happy to talk you through the technical stuff as little or as much as you want. The climb was incredible and Elis set a steady and manageable pace that meant, despite the huge inclines along the way, it was achievable. Thanks for everything both, I’m very glad I chose to climb the Breithorn from the Italian side and got to undertake this climb with you. 12/05/2018

During our mountain experience Elis was very confident, balanced emotionally, with a strong sense of responsibility for the security of his customers. He takes security very seriously and follows the minimum-risk scenario. Example: Elis insisted on compromising our planned Mont Blanc ascend and advised to consider more predictable mountain since the weather conditions made Italian way we were planning to take too dangerous for our level. He is also great in keeping very steady consistent pace as well as adapting to the group and infusing fun where it is safe to have it (e.g.: we tried crampon descend on a really steep sections and it was so much fun). We also got very well connected on a personal level. What can be improved: communication while planning all the details before the trip. We would appreciate to have more attention to details, more information about the trip and receiving it as early as possible instead of last minute. Since Mont Blanc did not happen this year, planning it with Elis for 2018. Thanks, a million Elis!

Elis is an attentive and caring guide. I climbed with him Pollux and MontViso. He adapts his programs with great professionalism. I feel in total confidence with him both in the effort and in the discovery.

We didn´t reach the top because my daughter had big problems with her stomack, but Claudio took care after her and was very thoughtful. Thanks to him we reached at least Lysjoch.

We had a fantastic day with Elis doing ski touring in the Aosta Valley. He was easy-going, yet very professional, and had a good knowledge of the area. He made safe route choices on a day with considerable avalanche risk and shared some nice tips and tricks along the way. He was able to communicate well in both Italian, French and English. We would not hesitate with using him for future trips

We had a wonderful day with Elis in Courmayeur. Despite the bad weather and strong snow conditions, Elis bring us freeriding during one day in the woods and found the perfect spots.Elis is a super enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable guide I would highly recommend for your upcoming trips in Courmayeur.

We had been ice-climbing for two days in Aosta Valley together with Peakshunter (Elis was our alpine guide). Great experience! We had the possibility to see beautiful places and try a multi-pitch with a very friendly and professional guide! High recommended if you want to experience a special adventure

Nous avons passé 4 jours en montagne à notre entière satisfaction et bénéficié des excellentes prestations d'Elis, guide que je recommande sans réserve. La météo nous a perturbé le déroulement initial du tour mais des solutions de remplacement ont été trouvées. Avec mes salutations les meilleures. Raymond Jaquet

We had a very exciting trip in Valle d’Aosta with Elis. A first day of free-riding for warming up, followed by three days of ski-touring in the beautiful valleys between Courmayeur and Aosta… Being also in contact with other guides, Elis has been able to find the best spots considering the changing weather and the quality of the snow. He is always keen to share his knowledge of the mountain and of the Valle d’Aosta’s back-country, where he grew up. Also therefore, we had a lot of pleasure in sharing with him well deserved meals at very nice places he would recommend… I would highly recommend him for discovering this region.

Val d'Aoste is such a fantastic destination for skitouring. Overlooked by many, it offers stunning valleys to explore as you pass one charming village after another up a mountain road. Elis was the perfect guide to explore his native backcountry: deep local knowledge allows him to make the best of any weather and snow conditions - and book the best table for a well-deserved recovery and some fine Italian pasta. He's a super nice, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide I would highly recommend

Elis took us to various places around Aosta for four days. We had varying weather conditions and he was able to navigate those and get us to great snow every day even though there hadn't been a snow fall in 10 days. The routes were adjusted to the team's abilities and he took good care of us and the motivation of the troops, in particular in light of my fear of heights. Given his excellent knowledge of the region, Elis was spot on in his choices of places in terms of scenery, wilderness and isolation from any nuisance. He is also a fantastic companion with whom we enjoyed endless meals, espresso's and drinks. I'd highly recommend him.

We spent a half day with Elis on the Vallée Blanche (from Courmayeur to Chamonix) where he guided us for a wonderful tour. I recommend Elis who was very keen on making us discover the breathtaking environment of La Vallée du Mont Blanc. Nice plus: Elis is taking pictures and send them to you afterwards.

Superbe échappée aux pieds du Mont Blanc. Nous sommes partis du côté italien, ce qui évite la traversée d'une arête un peu périlleuse. Il fait du moins s'organiser pour le trajet jusqu'au départ de la cabine (sensationnelle) et le retour depuis Chamonix. Elis nous a guidé avec beaucoup de prudence et d'attention sur cette jolie balade. Nous avons été gâté par la météo qui nous a offert de faire une visite guidée avec Elis sur l'histoire de l'alpinisme de la région et découvrir la topographie des lieux. Magique !

Nous sommes partis pendant 2 jours sur le massif du Mont Blanc. Elis nous a emmené sur la jolie grande voie Genépi. Superbe journée avec un guide sympa, ouvert, intéressant et qui sait ce qu’il fait ! Pour le deuxième jour, nous voulions aller sur la glace. Malgré que la période n’y soit pas propice, Elis nous a guidé à travers pierres et neige pour nous apprendre les techniques de piolets de traction, de crampons techniques, de broches à glace et de rappel sur ABALAKOV. Elis s’est débrouillé pour faire ce que l’on voulait malgré les conditions pas évidentes, dans un esprit de partage et de bonne humeur. Il nous a communiqué sa passion pour sa région, ses connaissances et sa technique et nous laisse un excellent souvenir ! Pour nous, c’est sûr : on restera en contact.

Climbing Matterhorn has been an extraordinary mountaineering experience for me. I particularly enjoyed the spectacular views while going up and from the summit (discovering Dent d’Hérens, Monte Rosa Range, Dent Blanche…during the sun rise). I also liked the fact that it required different climbing technics to go up (ice, rock…). Thank you very much Elis for guiding me on Matterhorn. I felt secured and I enjoyed very much your company. Let’s do another peak together soon!
