Trek in the Gran Paradiso Park

Trek in the Gran Paradiso Park
These mountain walks are located in the Gran Paradiso National Park and provide a tougher and wilder version of the Tour de Mont Blanc with scenery matching the best the Alps have to offer. Gran Paradiso itself is accessible to strong mountain walkers with ski poles and crampons and it is the easiest 4000m summit in the Alps (excluding the Breithorn which uses cable cars most of the way).

Gran Paradiso is one of the most strictly controlled and carefully preserved National Parks in the Alps. The route includes a variety of terrain with some high passes (up to 3000m), forested valleys and alpine pastures with plentiful and varied wildlife. The area is particularly renowned for the King Ibex that has proliferated and survived here since king Vittorio Emanuele created a hunting reserve. At the same time he also established many excellent paths to allow access to the area and to some of his hunting lodges (Casa di Caccia).
