Itineraries

Since the Park is a wilderness and inaccessible area, it is necessary to follow the trails - some of which are difficult, dangerous, and not yet marked - carefully and together with expert tour guides (the Park Official Tour Guides, the Alpine Guides, and qualified naturalistic tour guides), above all for the visitors who do not know the valley very well.

The Park Nature Trails

The Nature Trails are itineraries developing across the Park natural environment and along easily accessible trails without difficulties. It is not necessary to be expert and trained hikers, it is enough to wear suitable clothes and have the will to discover nature with a careful and curious spirit. Along the route, you will find some illustrated panels which, with images and short texts, describe the features of the surrounding environment. The trails are completed with a guidebook you can use during the walk or at home. The guidebooks of the Nature Trails are available in the Park information offices and in some local bookshops.

It is necessary to remind that Val Grande is a wilderness area, and therefore the trails must be followed with particular caution.
