Parco Nazionale Gran Paradiso, Aosta

4.9
#1 of 7 in Wildlife in Valle d'Aosta
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.

    We simply take a walk from Cogne to Valnontey but it was enough to see that we were in a really nice place. Easy hike for those not used to walking.
