Prices indicated are calculated based on a limited number of seats available or for a departure in over 2 months from today. Once all prereserved seats are filled, or for reservations with a departure in less than 2 months, we might have to acquire seats for a higher price (depending on availability at the moment the reservation is made), which might result in the application of a supplement that increases the closer we are to the departure date.

Our trip

  • Climb and traverse Gran Paradiso Peak (4061 m)

  • One extra day to maximize your chances of reaching the summit.

  • Incredibly warm and friendly hospitality in Italian huts.

  • Meet and part ways in Chamonix.

Towering over Italy's Aosta Valley, the highest peak in Gran Paradiso National Park proudly rises to over 4000 meters elevation. Its glacier-covered flanks and high altitude make it a truly worthy climb among some of the most spectacular glaciers in the region.

Timing and season
Hello,
My name is Eric and I had a summit/alpine intro course planned to Gran Paradiso from 25 to 28 of august, next week, with another agency. They have just emailed informing of the possibility of cancellation due to not having enough people. That being said, I’m looking for alternatives, as I don’t want to miss the flights, and found your website. Are there any activities with open spots for these days?
Kind regards,
Eric

    Hello Eric
    I just read your message. Unfortunately we are not in capacity to honor you demand. Our groups are full and we can not find more guides. If you really want to climb the Gran Paradiso this summer, maybe you can reach the mountain guides association of Val d'Aoste. We know them quite well, and perhaps they can fin a guide available in this period.
    I hope you will succeed in finding a solution for this summer end.
