Full description

Explore the Gran Paradiso National Park with an environmental guide and discover the secrets of one of Italy's most important nature reserves.

Snowshoes on your feet, you will walk on fresh snow and may encounter herds of ibex and chamois or spot other creatures of the forest. Meanwhile, your guide will entertain you with interesting stories and information about the surrounding environment.

Departing from Valsavarenche, you will walk along the path of King Victor Emmanuel II's hunting parties, passing through the ruins of ancient villages, constantly surrounded by natural landscapes of great beauty.

What we will do

The meeting with the guide is set for 10:00 a.m. at Pont in Valsavarenche (AO). Once the group is formed, snowshoes and poles (included in the participation fee) will be distributed. This will be followed by a briefing on the route and safety rules, and immediately afterwards we will set off on thesnowshoe hike.

The guide will lead us along theancient route of King Victor Emmanuel II'shunting parties, where we will encounter ibexes, chamois and other forest animals. The snowshoe hike will have a naturalistic focus as we will concentrate onobserving the flora and fauna and the surrounding landscapes.

It will be interesting to listen to the guide's tales, descriptions of nature, curiosities and anecdotes about the king's hunting habits. The route has a moderate altitude difference and is suitable for everyone , for a hike that is both peaceful and environmentally friendly.
