Description

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.

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.
