Big Hiking Tour of Gran Paradiso

The Big Hiking Tour of Gran Paradiso is the best way to explore the Aosta Valley side of Gran Paradiso.
DISPLAY FULL DESCRIPTION
It is a 6 days Trekking Ring covering all the Valleys of the Park of the Aosta Valley Park except the Cogne Valley. For the Cogne Valley trek, the ideal is the Gran Paradiso National Park Hiking trekking. The Aosta Valley part of Gran Paradiso is the more dramatic and the one with more glaciers. The wildest one is instead in Piedmont where there are less people and the paths are hard to find. This Tour will give you an extremely good knowledge of the park. You will pass by 3 valleys and you will also have a look to Piedmont as in Città di Chivasso Shelter at the Nivolet Pass you will be basically at the border with Piedmont. The opportunity to hike with a local guide will allow you to know park from inside discovering the legends about wildlife and the different species and plants of the Park. The accommodations are all pretty comfortable as you will sleep in lodges/shelters and even kind of hotel, so you will always have the toilet and a warm place where to stay.

Hiking Tour of Gran Paradiso: Explore the Beauty of this Amazing National Park

The glaciers of Gran Paradiso are wonderful from here and from Valtournenche it is possible to see the Normal route of Gran Paradiso. In case you are an expert climber or alpinist and you want to try to reach a 4000 meters peak the Gran Paradiso Summit it is waiting for you. If you do not have 6 days we can arrange it in fewer days. And on the opposite, if you want to go further to explore the Alps in a longer hike is possible. Trekking Alps offer you all the flexibility you need! You can contact us and we will manage your specific requests. We can make the Big Hiking Tour of Gran Paradiso shorter or add the Peak of Gran Paradiso in case you want.
