Parco Nazionale Gran Paradiso, Aosta

#1 of 15 in Wildlife in Valle d'Aosta
Nature / Park · Wildlife Area
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.

  • Amazing place. Lots of animals , things to do in the nature , breathtaking views. Great hike to the refuge. A lot of small waterfalls as well if you hike during summer
  • Amazing mountain! It took me 6h from Emanuele hut to the summit and 4h back. You don’t need a guide to climb it but strong legs is a must!
