The TrekBus Giroparchi is an extra service for hikers which will allow them to experience new hiking paths that were previously not accessible with the scheduled public services.
The Giroparchi project aims at creating a naturalistic hiking path in the areas of the Gran Paradiso and the Mont Avic parks, and at improving those same areas by offering additional services, of which TrekBus is a first example.
TREKBUS GIROPARCHI - Gran Paradiso
Fondation Grand Paradis presents for the summer of 2011 a new experimental service which can be pre-booked and which runs on the Aosta Valley side of the Gran Paradiso National Park.
The service, called TrekBus Giroparchi – Gran Paradiso, assists hikers in their excursions between valleys and aims at securing connections between municipalities located at the bottom of the valleys (Aymavilles, Villeneuve, Introd and Arvier), as well as between municipalities in the valleys of the Gran Paradiso (Cogne, Valsavarenche, Rhêmes-Saint-Georges, Rhêmes-Notre-Dame and Valgrisenche).
The service, which runs in addition to and does not substitute the regular bus services, operates from Saturday 16 July to Monday 12 September 2011 between 6.00am-8.00am and 4.30pm-7.30pm.
The TrekBus Giroparchi can be booked by telephone up to the day before the desired ride, or the same morning of the ride, for passengers travelling in the afternoon.
The service costs 5 Euros for one ride between the municipalities located at the bottom of the valleys, and 12 Euros for one ride from a municipality at the bottom of a valley to one of the municipalities in the high valleys (and the other way round). The fare is “per ride”, and does not change for groups bookings, up to a maximum of 8 people.
The initiative is entirely funded within the Giroparchi project, section 3.1 – Valorizzazione del Parco Naturale Mont Avic (Development of the Gran Paradiso National Park), of the 2007/2013 Aosta Valley PAR FAS.
