Winter hiking in Italy: “You can get it if you really want”

Today I describe the beautiful feeling of the winter hiking the Italian Alps. You can check in the winter hikes section fo Trekking Alps all the avaiable hikes in this season from december till March. Couple of weeks ago, as the followers of the italian blog know, Trekking Alps explored the Gran Paradiso National Park, hiking in the heart of the winter. The sun was shining and it was not snowing since couple of weeks so I thought that the walk with snowshoes would be kind of easy. That was not the case. Strong wind coming from the peaks moved all the snow and walking at -25°C (-13°F) for about 8 hours. The objective was Rifugio Chivasso (2600m) in a beautifull ice lakes valley in the Gran Paradiso National Park. It was quite hard to be able to reach our target but finally the satisfaction was amazing. Coming back from the trekking one fantastic song of Jimmy Cliff was wandering in my estatic mood. Here is the song and some images of this magic hiking in Italy!
