The place is really amazing, Trees and small rivers everywhere, the beautiful Italian Alps full of snow. I went there at the summer and made it almost to the top of Gran Paradiso, the view is stunning, It is easy to get to the place and if you like natures beauty you should visit it

This not so well know nature park has more to offer than you think. On our first (and only) walk which was of medium level, we saw the ibex and several alpine marmots (which are very cute). The campings are good and the restaurants are less expensive.

Share this with me. Within sight of Mont Blanc,anything is crystal-beauty. The park is named for one of the mountains within its confine,the highest on Italian soil. And the name is fitting for the park is a paradise of unspoilt alpine wilderness filled with an incredible variety of plants,flowers and animals. Armed with serious hiking boots,reasonable fitness and yodelling- pitch... More

Outstanding! We slept a few days at the camping site in Pont (Valsavarenche) and made the tour up to Gran Paradiso Summit (4.061 m) via the Rifugio Vittorio Emanuele II. On the first day we went from the camping site in Pont up to the Rifugio (~ 800 m elevation gain and 2 hours) where we slept. The second day... More

Awesome views or mountains, glaciers and forests - true paradise. If you're camping or hiking, I'd highly recommend a couple of nights at Camping Gran Paradiso, Valsavarenche. I couldn't find it on Trip Advisor. but the owner is so friendly and even lent us an extra blanket when we'd failed to pack properly for the incredibly cold alpine nights! http://www.campinggranparadiso.it/UKindex.html

This is definetely one of the most beautiful National Parks in Italy. We hiked there several times, from Cogna, Valsavaranche and on the Piedmont side, from Ceresole Reale. If you wish to start your hike already from 2600 m height, and in few minutes already enjoy blue alpine lakes and wildlife, Ceresole Reale is the easiest access to the park.... More

When we first entered the park at Valmontey we noticed that a lot of people had walking sticks. At first we thought it was about nordic walking..until after we decided to go up a mountain for a nice view. The mountains are STEEP. It is definitely not our first hike ever, but this is steep and hard on the knees.... More
