MAJOR POINTS​:

  • The system of the mule tracks and the royal hunting lodges was built by the will of Vittorio Emanuele II, king of Italy, passionate about hunting and the territory in which the Gran Paradiso National Park will then be established. It was thanks to the limitations on hunting activities imposed by King Vittorio Emanuele II that the Alpine ibex (Capra ibex) was able to save itself from extinction (it had in fact disappeared from the entire Alpine arc). Today the Royal House of Hunting houses an unmanaged but very comfortable hiking refuge: we will reach it with the help of the mule and spend the night there, just as the kings of the Savoy house did with their retinue.

  • The Ivrea 2770 m bivouac is literally at the foot of the Gran Paradiso: from here it seems as if you can touch the imposing south wall, just like you touch the wall of a room! Once widely used by mountaineers (from here many routes of the Gran Paradiso group started), the bivouac is today much less frequent due to changed environmental conditions: the withdrawal of glaciers and the increase in temperatures have made routes more dangerous and difficult once very popular, real classics. As for hiking, it remains an ideal stopping point to visit places as wonderful as they are unknown.

  • Evidence of the ancient Alpine civilization and large waterfalls in the Roc valley

  • Close encounters with the typical wildlife of the Gran Paradiso National Park (ibex, chamois, eagles, bearded vultures, marmots etc)
