Self Guided Tour of Gran Paradiso

As every Self Guided Treks everything is handled by the Trekking Alps Tour Operator, Verticalife.

We will provide you with all the maps, GPS waypoints, a detailed description of every day hike and the bookings for your Self guided Tour of Mont Blanc.

Gran Paradiso is the most famous National Park in Italy and to hike here is a relief for your soul. Unlike the Tour of Mont Blanc, Gran Paradiso is not very crowded and the paths can be pretty steep and wild. For this reason, we do normally suggest to do a trek in Gran Paradiso with a local guide. You will enter more into the everyday life of the Park and of Italians. It will for sure enrich your experience. Nevertheless for those who like self-guided adventure we provide you with all the information to do a Self Guided Tour of Gran Paradiso. As every Self Guided Treks, everything is handled by the Trekking Alps Tour Operator, Verticalife. We will provide you with all the maps, GPS waypoints, a detailed description of every day hike and the bookings for your Self-guided Tour of Gran Paradiso. The Trek in Gran Paradiso can be organized in different ways. So we decided to not make you a fixed proposal but to build yourself your Gran Paradiso Trek. The Valleys involved are the ones in Aosta Valley. If you want to go to Piedmont side it is even wilder and rough so we really suggest you to go with a guide. In particular, you can do a hike in Gran Paradiso for 4 to 7 days. It is also possible if you want to organize the Climb of Gran Paradiso Peak. Just tell us in the information and we will provide you with all the information you need. Gran Paradiso Peak is one of the easiest 4000 meters peak you can summit in the Alps. Nevertheless, it is not a joke to hike up there as there is a glacier and you'll have an Alpine Guide with you. In Gran Paradiso it is not possible to have a Private Room and there is no Luggage Transport. So if you choose this Self Guided tour you are accepting no Luggage Transport and no Private Rooms. If these things are important for you, you should check Monte Rosa Self Guided Trek, Tour of Mont Blanc Self Guided or Aosta Valley Self Guided. The Hikes in Gran Paradiso are pretty hard and we can build your hike according to your need.
