Highlights

 
  • Spend 2 days in the middle of the Pennine Alps and sleep in a mountain hut.

  • Reach Cabane de Valsorey and enjoy hiking around Grand Combin massif.

  • Contemplate the breathtaking panoramas surrounding the Cabane.

 

In the Canton of Valais, near Verbier, it is located the Cabane de Valsorey, a mountain hut on the Grand Combin, in the Pennine Alps. In this region, the hut is a popular starting point for mountaineers and climbers who want to explore the massif and its surroundings.

At 3,030 meters above sea level, the refuge is in front of Mont Velan, one of the highest mountains in the area. On this 2-day program, I invite you to explore these spots and enjoy hiking across stunning natural landscapes by taking the trail to the Cabane.

On day 1, we’ll transfer to the commune of Bourg Saint Pierre and start the hike to the hut through the Vallon de Valsorey and the Chalet d’Amont. Once in the hut, we’ll enjoy the spectacular views from the surrounding peaks. Then, we’ll relax at the refuge and spend the night there. On day 2, we’ll descend to Bourg Saint Pierre through the Sentier Panoramique and drive to Verbier by bus or train.

If you think this hike would suit you, consider we’ll face around 1,500 meters of elevation gain at the ascent, so it’s important to be physically fit.

Do you find this program attractive? Don’t hesitate to send the request to make your reservation. I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful time hiking around the Grand Combin massif.

I also lead several hiking programs like this one in Switzerland. Check out these adventures to Sentier des Chamois and Cabane Brunet, both near Verbier.
