What's it like?

This is one of our most exciting adventure trips for schools and groups, with almost all the activities taking place in natural outdoor environments, in the beautiful Gran Paradiso National Park. Offering the best activity programme you'll find, at incredible prices, it's easy to see why this centre is fast becoming our most popular destination.

Bordered by France and Switzerland and surrounded by the highest peaks in the Alps, Italy’s Aosta Valley is a region of spectacular scenery and the perfect setting for activities. The highlight of this adventure is the chance to experience white water rafting down the Dora Baltea River, conveniently located next to our camp.

On this action packed trip you’ll also rock climb at a venue that’s at 2000m in the Gran Paradiso National Park; spend the day paddle boarding and kayaking on one of the local lakes, try your hands at our on-site high ropes course in the trees and so much more!

As a fully accredited company, you can be assured that whilst these activities are exciting and adventurous, they conform to stringent safety standards set by our accreditors and are delivered by qualified, assessed instructors. With the sunshine beaming down on you, there really is nowhere better than the Italian Alps!
