The Granda Traversata delle Alpi (GTA) is an immensely rewarding 630km long-distance route across the western Italian Alps, and is an exciting proposition, traversing the Ligurian, Maritime, Cottian, Graian and Pennine Alps to finish near Monte Rosa, punctuated en route by stunning peaks including the Argentera, Monviso and Gran Paradiso. Starting close to the Mediterranean, the guide describes the GTA in 47 day stages of between 4 and 23km, with a total of over 44,000m of ascent as it curves its way high over the fertile Piedmont plain traversing the eastern (Italian side) of the Alps, heading northwards to a brilliant conclusion near the base of Monte Rosa. A network of hospitable high-altitude refuges alternated with village-based hostels and comfortable inns guarantee walkers memorable meals and a good night's rest. The sole requisites for potential trekkers are a taste for adventure and average fitness; no special mountaineering expertise is necessary. Excellent public transport links make multiple shorter chunks feasible to fit in with individual holiday requirements.
