Body

Starting from the Pointe Helbronner (3 462m) - that you will reach by the Skyway cable car in Italy - our snowshoe hike in the Vallée Blanche - Glacier du Géant offers the unique occasion to discover the high mountain world in wintertime. Rope up with your guide and enjoy the Mont Blanc Massif atmosphere and landscapes, with its glaciers and peaks. Cross a breath-taking panorama before reaching the Col d’Entrèves (3 527m), located in the Northern part of the Vallée Blanche. Make your way back through the same itinerary.

The Skyway cable car provides a comfortable access to the area, without technical difficulties. Our snowshoe hike in the Vallée Blanche is perfect for hikers wishing to discover the high mountain universe in wintertime and does not require any experience in mountaineering. For a high mountain discovery, you can also choose our Snowshoe hike on the Mer de Glace glacier, starting from Montenvers.
