Gran Paradiso Piedmont Trek is described here and organized in a wild and adventure set. It is possible to change completely the “mood” of the trek, organizing the daily walks less long and sleeping in more comfortable shelters. By the way why we choose to make it wild is because Trekking Alps aim is to have a deep feeling with nature and there is nothing like a night in an unguarded hut in the Alps that make you feel more near to the Nature.
Gran Paradiso is the widest National Park in Italy and was the first to be established in 1922. The park is pretty big and has different souls and environment. In this section you’ll find the Aosta Valley side of the Park which is more mild and less rocky. Probably this Piedmont side of the Park has more animals and has more dramatic high mountain environment: big granite walls are towering all over and the landscape is really wild and rough.
The Itinerary described is a trail, means we’ll not be back in the same place. We’ll keep our walk starting higher than when we’ll arrive. The day hikes are pretty long but the positive gains are not enormous compared with other treks. In any case the Gran Paradiso Piedmont Trek has to be considered for people well prepared physically in the described hike. As already mentioned we can change it to a more mild and fit for beginners way.
Gran Paradiso National Park offers an unique nature with lots of wildlife and amazing views. We’ll not reach peaks but crossing different valleys we’ll have a very nice views over thre Orco Valley, one of the most famous valley for the italian climbing and hiking world.

Roberto was very helpful in organizing all aspects of the 2 day hike near Torino. He made organizing transportation and equipment very easy. Easily one of the best guides I have had the please to hike with. The hike was full of snow and was an exhausting yet amazing experience! The evening spent in the cabin was also enjoyable! Roberto came prepared with entertainment and food! An unforgettable couple of days. 100% would recommend Roberto to anyone looking to hike in the Italian Alps!
Roberto is THE best out there. I had an amazing time trekking the Alps with him. Although weather didn’t cooperate with us on the first day, Roberto knew how to handle the cards we were dealt and I 100% trusted his judgement and knowledge. If you’re considering this trek, I definitely recommend doing it with Roberto. He knew the best treks and place where mountain hiking. We’ve been in Gran Paradiso National park hiking and it was a terrific trek!
