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!

August, 2015

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 !
