Would you like to discover a dazzling natural area in the middle of the Alps? Follow me on this hiking program to the Cabane d’Orny and spend 2 days exploring the natural jewels

Situated in the middle of a paradisiacal panorama, Cabane d’Orny is a mountain refuge in the Swiss side of the Mont Blanc Massif, in the Canton of Valais. At 2,831 meters of altitude, the hut is located next to the Orny Glacier between two small beautiful lakes. Here is where our hiking program will lead us and where we’ll spend the night.

If you join me on this hike, we’ll go across the Marais de Champex-Lac, a protected area where we can find various animals and vegetation. Then, we’ll continue the ascent to the Orny Hut and the Orny Glacier, from where we’ll contemplate stunning landscapes from the surrounding mountains. On the following day, we’ll descend through the Vallon d’Arpette de Saleina, a gorgeous and peaceful wilderness area, and return to Champex.

Does this hike sound interesting to you? Keep in mind it’s important to have a good level of fitness. So, if you’re ready for this adventure, don’t hesitate to send the request and make your reservation. I’ll be glad to be your guide across this amazing natural area in Switzerland.

In addition, other hiking experiences with overnights at mountain huts are these programs that I lead to Cabane de Louvie, Cabane Brunet and Cabane de Valsorey. Check them out!

About the guide

Mountain Leader

Setting off on an adventure on a whim, without a precise plan, walking according to desires and emotions, pushing further to discover what a summit or a ridge reveals. Trained as a business lawyer, then manager of a large sports store, biathlete and trail runner, it was my job as a guide that ultimately allowed me to establish a more structured and secure framework for my wanderings, but without ever losing my wonder and my curiosity. It is with this state of mind that today I like to travel and share the mountains here and elsewhere, preferably roaming, in order to give us time to soak up the landscapes which evolve over time, days and seasons.

I will always be happy to set off on the classic tours, but above all I strive to guide you off the beaten paths.

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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
