Hiking to the Cabane Brunet and Bec de Corbassière, near Verbier (2 days)

Spend the night at the Cabane Brunet and enjoy hiking across the stunning mountains and glaciers in the Bec de Corbassière route on this 2-day program led by UIMLA certified mountain leader Sarah.



2 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct




  • Enjoy 2 days hiking in Switzerland and spend the night in the Cabane Brunet.
  • Explore the Corbassière Glacier and cross its impressive walkway.
  • Discover beautiful natural spots and contemplate breathtaking views.


Situated at an altitude of 2,300 meters, Corbassière Glacier is a valley glacier that belongs to the Grand Combin massif in the Pennine Alps. If you follow me on this 2-day hike, we’ll discover this amazing natural spot as well as many others across the Bec de Corbassière route, near the Swiss village of Verbier.

On the first day of the program, we’ll drive to Lourtier and then ascend to the Cabane Brunet, a cozy mountain hut at 2,000 meters above sea level. This refuge is a popular starting point for different hiking and mountaineering programs. It is also where we’ll spend the night.

On the second day of the program, we’ll take the Bec de Corbassière route, discover the beautiful landscapes surrounding Col des Avouillons (2,647 meters) and descend to the Corbassière Glacier. At this point, we’ll cross the Passerelle de Corbassière, a 200-meter long and 70-meter high walkway above the glacier’s moraine. Afterwards, we’ll ascend to Cabane de Corbassière and reach Col des Otanes (2,845 meters). Finally, we’ll descend to the village of Fionnay and take the bus to La Châble.

If you’re planning to join me on this hiking adventure, keep in mind it’s important to have a good fitness level.

Ready to spend 2 fantastic days hiking in the middle of the Pennine Alps? Then all you have to do is send the request to book your place. It will be a pleasure for me to guide you around this beautiful natural area in Switzerland.

Another option in the area could be this hiking program that I lead in Val de Bagnes with overnight at the Cabane de Louvie. Check it out!

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 !
