Tour del Gran Paradiso

Travelling on ancient paths, through pine forests, meadows and hidden valleys, we keep as close as possible to the snow capped mountains with views to the Matterhorn, the Weisshorn and the Dom. A truly stunning trip which includes a night in the world famous alpine town of Zermatt.
