Overview

Book
Sandwiched between the Aosta Valley and the Italian Piedmont, the Gran Paradiso National Park in Italy offers the chance of a walking holiday in Paradise! Our circuit trek takes us through a high mountain environment of hanging valleys, snow covered Alpine peaks, towering cliffs and impressive glaciers in the shadow of the highest peak situated entirely in Italy - Gran Paradiso. En route, we trek through picturesque valleys and cross high cols, looking out for the Alpine wildlife that Gran Paradiso National Park is famous for, such as chamois, ibex, marmots and eagles. Although an area of outstanding beauty, the Gran Paradiso has escaped the attention of the crowds, thereby rewarding the intrepid and discerning hiker with a wild solitude which has been long lost in other regions of the Alps. This unique Alpine walking holiday is the one to do if you really want to get off the beaten trail!

Highlights

    • A fantastic walking circuit in an unspoilt region of the Alps
    • Views of Gran Paradiso from the Col d'Entrelor
    • Gran Paradiso National Park is renowned as a wildlife habitat
    • Enjoy traditional Italian hospitality and cuisine

The trip met and at times exceeded all personal expectations and it was a pleasure to climb with the lead guide. His knowledge and experience are incredible. Assistant guide was also great. Having stayed in tea houses on treks, the mountain refuges were much better than expected. The base accommodation of Yeti Lodge was superb, in a great location with great facilities. The catering at Yeti was also superb!

Without doubt, I would rank this trip 10/10 and certainly recommend it to anyone who enjoys Alpine walking and everything that it has to offer - beautiful scenery, good mountain hut accommodation and plentiful quality local food. The landscape was both magnificent and varied, walking across snow covered high mountain passes to lush flower strewn meadows. The mountain hut accommodation was always clean, good showers (hot water) and toilet facilities and friendly staff. The Local Italian food in the huts was also always varied, plentiful and tasty! Our trek leader led the trek with great enthusiasm. Her knowledge of the history and culture of the region, the fauna and flora all added to the holidays enjoyment. The Tour del Gran Paradiso trek certainly ranked top in my enjoyment of mountain trekking so far.
