The Alpine Paradise Race : September 23-24th, place Moulin, Aosta Valley, Italy

This exceptional stage at 2000 m altitude in the Aosta Valley (the valley on the Italian side of Mont Blanc) is taking place for the third time. It represents the pinnacle of the concept of stand up paddle racing in an alpine environment. i.e. Alpine Lakes Tour !

Everything is there: the turquoise waters, the 4000 glacier-covered peaks, the mountain refuge and its very special atmosphere with, in the case of Refuge Prarayer, a unique welcome, abundant and excellent food, showers and even a jacuzzi !!

For accommodation: a refuge with sauna and jacuzzi just above the lake. There are still places left at the refuge, it’s very comfortable! There are double rooms, a small and a large dormitory, showers and even a Jacussi! The refuge atmosphere was truly one of the magical moments of the first two editions ! For those who prefer to sleep in the valley it is also possible or even in the dam parking lot.

Das Alpine Paradise Race: ein wirklich außergewöhnliches Rennen und Abenteuer

Diese außergewöhnliche Etappe auf 2000 m Höhe im Aostatal (dem Tal auf der italienischen Seite des Mont Blanc) findet zum dritten Mal statt. Es stellt den Höhepunkt des Konzepts des Stand-Up-Paddle-Rennens in einer alpinen Umgebung dar. nämlich die Alpenseen-Tour!

Alles ist da: das türkisfarbene Wasser, die 4000 mit Gletschern bedeckten Gipfel, die Berghütte und ihre ganz besondere Atmosphäre mit, im Fall der Berghütte Prarayer, einem einzigartigen Empfang, reichhaltiger und ausgezeichneter Verpflegung, Duschen und sogar einem Whirlpool !

Als Unterkunft: eine Schutzhütte mit Sauna und Whirlpool direkt über dem See. Im Tierheim sind noch Plätze frei, es ist sehr gemütlich! Es gibt Doppelzimmer, einen kleinen und einen großen Schlafsaal, Duschen und sogar einen Jacussi! Die Atmosphäre der Schutzhütte war wirklich einer der magischen Momente der ersten beiden Ausgaben! Für diejenigen, die lieber im Tal schlafen möchten, ist dies auch möglich oder sogar auf dem Dammparkplatz.

L’Alpine Paradise Race: una corsa e un’avventura davvero eccezionali

Questa tappa eccezionale a 2000 m di altitudine in Valle d’Aosta si svolge per la terza volta. Rappresenta l’apice del concetto di corsa in stand up paddle in ambiente alpino. ovvero il Tour dei Laghi Alpini!

C’è tutto: le acque turchesi, le 4000 cime ricoperte di ghiacciai, il rifugio e la sua atmosfera davvero speciale con, nel caso del Rifugio Prarayer, un’accoglienza unica, una ristorazione abbondante ed eccellente, docce e perfino una vasca idromassaggio!!

Per l’alloggio: un rifugio con sauna e jacuzzi appena sopra il lago. Ci sono ancora posti liberi al rifugio, è comodissimo! Ci sono camere doppie, una camerata piccola e una grande, docce e perfino una vasca idromassaggio! L’atmosfera del rifugio è stata davvero uno dei momenti magici delle prime 2 edizioni!

This mixture of high mountain atmosphere in a refuge with a view of the high peaks at 4000m and the glaciers and the glide on pure, smooth and turquoise water is quite exceptional. It took 2 years to obtain all the authorizations to allow the competitors of the 1st edition of the Alpine Paradise Race in 2019 to sail on the Place Moulin lake.

It is a luxury and a privilege to be able to paddle this magical lake. Even if the objective is to make this event permanent, there is nothing to say that the authorizations will be renewed in 2024.
