DISPLAY FULL DESCRIPTION
the most beautiful National Park of Italy: Gran Paradiso. Hiking in Gran Paradiso is a dream for outdoor enthusiasts all around the world and one of the must-do trekking in Italy. This amazing Hike is a perfect experience for all kind of trekkers: air is pure and colors here are vivid and strong. We can change the details of the walk according to your need. As in every Trekking Alps trek, it is possible to tailor-make the trek depending on your time, accommodation requirements, budget and hiking experience. Green meadows, big ice mass, and blue sky are part of the wonderful landscape in the northwest corner of Italy. We organize trekking in Gran Paradiso all year long. Gran Paradiso National Park is the refuge of the ibex, a beautiful wild goat with huge horns that was extinct all over the Alps in the 19th century except in this that will be the Gran Paradiso National Park area. The former King Vittorio Emanuele made it as a hunting reserve and save(!) the ibex and the wildlife. In 1920 he gave it to the Italian state and the area became the first national park of Italy. Gran Paradiso National Park is still the widest national reserve of the Italian Alps and the whole of Italy. The most exciting moment of the trekking in Gran Paradiso is maybe climbing of Punta Rossa(3630m) during the third day even though every day has fantastic spots, amazing scenery and breathtaking perspectives. The Gran Paradiso hiking area is well known compared with the other Trekking Alps trekking and that is why there will be more people here than in most of the other hiking holidays offered on this website. Wild animals in this Gran Paradiso National Park Hiking are very common and it is a trekking most suitable for willing children to experience the natural world at its best. Last but not least Cogne is a famous spot for enjoying very excellent mountain food: polenta, hams and a special rice and cheese dish which you most probably never forget.

Simply One of the Most Beautiful Place on Earth!

As two of the nights are planned in an unguarded hut which is not possible to book, the central weeks of August are not considered to be a good period for this hike. The itinerary of this Gran Paradiso National Park Hiking is only one of the many which are possible to experience. Again, we will plan the hike, according to your interests and needs!
