A trek in the Gran Paradiso National Park to experience the grandeur of a shining nature untouched by the human activity. Gran Paradiso is in itself an evocative name of uncontaminated natural spaces where nature is as it should be: grandiose, spectacular, and pure. In a country like Italy where all the space has been somehow shaped and used, territories remain which have just been touched by our presence. The Gran Paradiso National Park is one of these unspoiled wilderness spaces where you can travel on foot, savoring all its unspoiled beauty.
Accompanying the group will be the alpine guide Stefano Dalla Gasperina born in 1965: ” I started going to the mountains in the valleys of the Gran Paradiso , in particular on the Piedmont side. And it is on these mountains that in the early 80s I learned to climb just for fun. Many mountains, many friends, many itineraries around the Alps and the desire to work and in contact with people and with nature has led me to become an alpine guide , a profession that I carry out in its most “classic” exception … to discover the mountains and practicable activities! This profession gives me great satisfaction thanks to the opportunity to meet people and visit new places but also believe me great responsibility! The long collaboration with the Gran Paradiso National Park has allowed me to qualify as “Park Ambassador” . Qualification that has consolidated even more the relationships with the institution and that every year leads me to collaborate by organizing events and participating in events for promotion in the Piedmont area. The passion for the profession of Mountain Guide and my curiosity led me to work in different realities in the Alps, from Monte Rosa to Verbier, from Chamonix to Zermatt, because I believe that only by knowing other professionals and with the mutual exchange of experience can grow professionally, but above all enrich ourselves humanly! I wait for you in Valle D’Aosta for trekking in the Gran Paradiso National Park ! ”

From the town of Lillaz it runs through the first part of the great Valeille valley, up to the homonymous pasture, the view is spectacular on the glacial head of the valley even if the great flood events of the nineties are still evident, which ruined modified part of the valleys. The initial forest of larches, firs and broad-leaved trees introduce the final climb that will take us in front of the park's hut in the Arolla valley.
