Classic Walks of Gran Paradiso

Immerse yourself in Italian mountain life on this twin centre hiking adventure in the Aosta Valley. The Gran Paradiso National Park is Italy’s oldest, founded in 1922, this side of the Alps really is a natural paradise. Expect peaceful Alpine meadows, steep woodland trails and mountain paths with views to glaciers, snowy peaks and powerful waterfalls. Relax at the end of the walking day in your comfortable and welcoming hand-picked hotel.

Start your adventure in Pont, a hamlet at the foot of the Gran Paradiso mountain. A simple place, there are many wonderful walks starting right at the hotel’s door. You will be transferred to Cogne, a pleasant contrast to Pont. This bustling town is still only a stone’s throw away from some of the best walks in the park. Enjoy a multitude of authentic Valdôtain restaurants, serving up hearty plates of creamy polenta, venison stew, fontina and tome cheese dishes, and of course, delicious pizza.
