Located in the Gran Paradiso national park, it offers a challenging but beautiful ascent through picturesque landscapes rich in alpine flora and wildlife. You will also enjoy views of the majestic Mont Blanc range.
Although high, the ascent of the Gran Paradiso is not technically very demanding, making this peak the perfect introduction to high alpine climbing. On this course, you will learn the essential skills of high mountain climbing; crampon and ice axe techniques, glacier travel safety technique and rope work skills.
Prior to climbing Gran Paradiso we will take you up to two major glaciers of the Mont Blanc range; Vallee Blanche and Glacier du Trient. As part of the course you will climb two alpine peaks, Aiguille du Tour (3544m) and Gran Paradiso (4016m), and you will spent two nights in mountain huts where you can enjoy the spectacular sunsets over the snow covered alpine peaks.
