This 1-day hike and via ferrata to Boccalatte Hut in Val Ferret is a great choice for those of you looking for something more than just a walk up the mountain.
The Boccalatte Hut (2804 m) is one of the oldest mountain huts in Italy. It was first built in 1881 -originally named Grandes Jorasses refuge– and was renowned on different occasions during the 20th century. It remained closed for 7 years until it was reopened in 2016.
This beautiful building is located in a unique spot, right above the Grandes Jorassess glaciers in the . It is used as the starting point for several climbs of the Mont Blanc massif.
And one of our guides will take you up to this historic gem starting from Planpincieux village at 1578 meters. We’ll hike up at your pace, enjoying nature and the amazing surroundings. Then, as the hut is located on a vertical rock cliff above the glacier, for the last 100 meters we’ll climb through an easy via ferrata route.
The total walking time for the trip is from 6 to 8 hours with an altitude gain of 1224 meters.
This 1-day hike and via ferrata program to Boccalatte Hut is a great way to discover these beautiful mountains. Send me a request now and we’ll start organizing your trip!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
