Description

Head into the depths of the Mont Blanc massif on a 1-day hike designed specifically for beginners, and witness some of the most spectacular alpine scenery.

As we advance forward on the glacier watch as the clear crystal ice smoothly blends into the blue skies.

The dramatic alpine scenery is a huge reward for such a convenient and simple approach. The thrill of the glacial hike will trigger a deeper passion and appreciation for the high mountains as well as mountaineering.

During the action-packed day you’ll gain all the necessary skills for glacier mountaineering, as well as becoming familiar with the usage of an ice axe, crampons and climbing rope.

Even more, you’ll become accustomed to some of the core safety rules for glacier mountaineering.

The exact location of the hike will depend on the specific physical preparation of the group, which has a minimum number of four participants. We will choose between the Colle del Gigante, the Colle d’Entreves, or a particular spot on the corner of the glacier.

Once we’re on the glacier, we’ll get up close and personal with the vertical granite spires surrounding us, offering incredible alpine views.

Along the way you’ll also get to learn information about the mountain environment, focussing on geology, meteorology and glaciology.

Potential participants don’t need to have any previous mountaineering experience on glaciers. Just an eagerness to learn and a curiosity for the mountains are required.

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the breathtaking alpine scenery for a 1-day glacial hike for beginners on the classic Mont Blanc massif.
