General advice

If you are interested in, or if you are planning to hike during the free time, please take a good pair of hiking shoes with you! Valsavarenche extends at high altitude (above 1500 m a.s.l.) and some snow could still be on the paths.

In the evening and in the night it may be quite cold! Don't forget a sweater and a rain-jacket!

There are many beautiful hiking possibilities in the Gran Paradiso Park. The official Park website and this website provide a general description of the park and list hiking trails.
