Five days trekking in the Gran Paradiso National Park, the oldest national park in Italy. We’ll be walking along the old mule-tracks where King Vittorio Emanuele ll climbed on horseback for his hunting expeditions.
The chance to walk for more days and sleep in high altitude mountain refuges detaching oneself completely from daily routine , returning to give value to passing time, appreciating every moment of the day and evening. Haste doesn’t belong to anyone who walks with us in the mountains. We don’t aim to break any records but to take advantage to the full of the space that divides us from one refuge to another. To discover the world that surrounds us and maybe understand ourselves a little better!
Our travel companions will be chamois, ibex, eagles and edelweiss. We’ll learn about their characteristics and survival techniques. We’ll learn how to observe and photograph them with respect for their nature and wildness.
Along our way we will go over three mountain passes, some more difficult than others, but all with wonderful surprises awaiting us on the other side. To learn how to dose our strength and get over the difficulties and obstacles of trekking is part of the amazing experience we’ll live together in the wonderful vertical world.
