  • Enjoy a great day hike with spectacular views over the Corbassière Glacier
  • Go hiking in a beautiful area and get close to the stunning Grand Combin peaks
  • Choose between a more challenging tour or a little less demanding option


Join me on this great day hike to the spectacular Corbassière Glacier, departing from Fionnay, a village located in the western part of the canton of Valais. This amazing tour allow us to get closer to the stunning peaks of the Grand Combin massif and to enjoy unique views of glacier.

The Bec de Corbassiere tour requires an extra effort on altitude, as Fionnay is situated at 1490 meters, at the bottom of the valley of Bagnes. The village is located at the foot of the glacier and of the Gran Combin massif.

The Bec de Séry tour is an alternative to the Bec de Corbassière route. It is a little less demanding as it starts from the Brunet Hut (2103m). Both routes guarantee an exceptional alpine panorama! So, whatever option you choose, you will enjoy an amazing hiking adventure.

There is also an impressive suspension bridge, the Paserelle de Crobassière. It has a height of 70 meters and it is 21o meters long. Crossing the bridge is optional, but it will not leave anyone indifferent!

Just send me a request if you’d like to join me on a great day hike, enjoying breathtaking views in the Swiss Alps. If you are looking for more options, check out my profile page and discover othergreat hiking tours in Switzerland!

Super randonnée en famille avec Sarah, une accompagnatrice extra, ayant mille tours dans son sac pour motiver et amuser les plus jeunes. En plus de l’excellente ambiance, nous avons eu la chance de voir des paysages magnifiques sur le Valais. Et puis quel plaisir de passer une nuit en refuge avec ses enfants. Merci Sarah, nous reviendrons !
