Description

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!

About the guide

-Sarah

Mountain Leader

Setting off on an adventure on a whim, without a precise plan, walking according to desires and emotions, pushing further to discover what a summit or a ridge reveals. Trained as a business lawyer, then manager of a large sports store, biathlete and trail runner, it was my job as a guide that ultimately allowed me to establish a more structured and secure framework for my wanderings, but without ever losing my wonder and my curiosity. It is with this state of mind that today I like to travel and share the mountains here and elsewhere, preferably roaming, in order to give us time to soak up the landscapes which evolve over time, days and seasons.

I will always be happy to set off on the classic tours, but above all I strive to guide you off the beaten paths.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
