Gran Paradiso Mountain Hiking Area
The Gran Paradiso peak with its 4061 meters above the sea level is the only 4000 meters peak entirely in Italy and the fauna and flora that live at its base are among the richest biodiversity in Europe.
The paths in the Gran Paradiso mountain hiking area are very well marked and pretty easy to walk by, but is also possible to organize high mountain environment trekking where you’ll need to be prepared for a wild and not easy paths. The mountain hiking environment in Gran Paradiso, as the name suggest, is pretty amazing. Green meadows towered by glaciers and wildlife pretty easy to spot. This place will be hard to forget when you’ll be back home.
Together with Gran Paradiso National Park we also describe the hikes in the nearby Monte Avic Natural Reserve: another splendid and not so well known area where to experience your outdoor mountain trekking holidays.
Near Place to visit and Special Features
Cogne – Iron Mines
Aosta – Roman Town
Gran Paradiso Mountain Hiking area offer many opportunity of accommodation in the mountains. Unguarded huts in the Aosta Valley side of Gran Paradiso National Park are pretty wild: small houses with 9 beds in 10 sqaure meters. They are meant more for mountaineer than for trekkers/visitors but they offer a truly wild and strong experience. It is better to avoid this type of accommodation in August when it is more probable to find them crowded.
In the Piedmont side of Gran Paradiso National Park the unguarded huts are more comfortable. All over it is possible to find very nice bed and breakfast and even luxury 4 stars hotel both in Piedmont and in Aosta Valley side. The shelters are not so many in Aosta Valley side, while there is more choice in Piedmont side of the Gran Paradiso National Park.
