Parco Nazionale Gran Paradiso, Aosta

(4.9/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Dramatic panoramic vistas and plentiful wildlife await you at Parco Nazionale Gran Paradiso, an Italian national park set in a stunning Alpine landscape. Established in 1922 (making it Italy's first national park), the land is home to 4,000 alpine ibex, an endangered species that the park has been charged with protecting. Lush green rolling hills and valleys intertwine between the snow-capped peaks rising overhead. Weasels, hares, badgers, wolves, and chamois join the ibex here. You can explore easy hiking trails through the natural landscape, or it can also be traveled by bike. Use our Aosta vacation trip planner to visit Parco Nazionale Gran Paradiso on your trip to Aosta, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • Ideal for holidays all year round. We visited winter and had enough snow for our kids? did skiing and kataeycharistithikan. Summer or autumn is ideal for those who like walking has very nice trails. Wonderful landscape with scattered small or larger villages.

  • I was here in February 2017 with the valleys and snowcapped mountains completely, we departed from Cogne and then walk up to the falls of Lilliaz and then to Valnontey to do a short hike. Absolutely beautiful waterfalls to visit (totally icy surfaces), though due to soil ice we couldn't continue the hike to the Summit. For lovers of skiing, the slopes are well kept, numerous and absolutely!

  • From Aosta there are dozens of kilometers of road to get to this park, invisible from the regional capital. The Park is large and tap various valleys, Valle d'Aosta and Piedmont. You can see mountain goats (less than many speculate) in every part of the Aosta Valley and there are mountains on the border of each part of the region. The mountains that overlook the Park are among the least interesting of the Valley. The mountain environment is certainly nice, but does not depend on whether there is officially a park, but by being at altitude.
