Join me on this incredible program departing from the dazzling Tsanfleuron Glacier to the Sanetch Pass. And let me take you to fantastic spots on the way there, like Col de Sanetch and the enchanting Prarochet hut.

The Tsanfleuron Glacier lies in the western Bernese Alps. This 3.5 kilometers long glaciers is one of the most incredible things to visit in the cantons of Vaud and Valais. It stands at approximately 3,000 meters, with its lowest point at 2,500 meters. And one of its best features is that it can be reached very easily. We can either take a chairlift from the station. Or we could hike up, crossing several secured paths. Plus, there are also buses that can take us there.

Then, the Sanetch Pass, also in the Canton of Valais and the Bernese Alps, is another marvellous part of this trip. This high mountain pass offers some of the best views of the area. And there are spots here, like the road that leads to the pass from Sion and Lac de Sanetch, that can only be reached by foot. What’s more, we’ll reach an amazing altitude of 2,252 meters, where the air will feel more fresh and clean.

Furthermore, Col de Sanatech, which we’ll visit as well, is a very popular destination. Its popularity comes mainly for the unrivalled views it offers of the Pennine Alps and the Tsanfleuron Glacier. Finally Prarochet is a charming mountain hut. Here we can stop to get some rest and enjoy mesmerizing sceneries, as well as a glass of Johannisberg, straight from the valley’s vineyard, and a piece of homemade cake.

So don’t miss out on this exclusive opportunity. Send me a request and follow me on this wonderful adventure in Switzerland.

I also guide this Combins range 2-day snowshoeing if you are looking for a winter trip.

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 !
