Jun 17 - 24 Camping trip in Europe - Gran Paradiso in northern Italy
The 'core week' will be based at Lo Stambecco campsite in the village of Valnontey, just outside the town of Cogne. Cogne is about 12 miles south of the A5 road which runs through Aosta and Courmayeur to the Mont Blanc tunnel and Chamonix. It's a short drive from Chamonix via the Mont Blanc tunnel but can be reached in other ways from France or Switzerland via high mountain roads.
Gran Paradiso is Italy’s oldest national park and has been protected for many years from much of the usual alpine development. The landscape is typically alpine: jagged snowcapped granite peaks and lovely meadow-filled valleys. The major peak, Gran Paradiso, is 13,323 feet high. Many well-signposted trails (suitable for all abilities) provide wide panoramas towards Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa. High alpine pastures and wide valley meadows are filled with flowers and butterflies and the land is full of wildlife: ibex, chamois, marmots, hares, lynx, wolves, weasels and ermine. In the skies are golden eagles, alpine accentor, rock ptarmingan, and the eagle owl.
The ‘core week’ when we meet, at the campsite is Wednesday 17th June to Wednesday 24th June. If you’d like to join us or would just like more information, contact Clare
