About the GTA

The GTA is a long-distance trail through the Italian Alps. The route starts close to the Ligurian Coast and goes north along the French border, crossing all major valleys. The trail passes by a number of major mountains: Monviso, Rocciamelone, Gran Paradiso and Monte Rosa. Most of the trail is quiet and the scenery is beautiful. There are many places to stay along the route, mountain huts, but also trail hostel, called Posto Tapa, which provide basic lodging and often good food. Some of these places basically only see guests who walk the GTA.

The trail is fully accessible in July and August, but some sections can be walked from May or June onwards. After August, the weather can turn worse and some of the mountain huts and other places to stay may be closed (or only open on the weekends).
