This glacier trekking program is a great opportunity for hikers and beginner mountaineers to experience glaciers and travel through a landscape unlike any other! Our glacier hiking tours in the mountains around Chamonix are suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Whether you want to become a mountaineer or you simply want to enjoy a magical landscape of ice and snow at high altitude, we will offer you an unforgettable experience in the mountains. We will spend the day exploring Mer de Glace (Sea of Ice), a dry glacier during the summer months. During our day together, you will get to see ice caves, glacier lakes and look into crevasses! The source of the Mer de Glace is located at around 3700m and flows down towards Chamonix to about 1500m. We will start our journey at the Montenvers Train Station in Chamonix. After a short train ride, we will take the gondola to reach the glacier. Equipped with a harness, crampons and an ice-axe, you’ll get to explore this true wonderland in the company of an IFMGA-certified expert guide. Depending on the wishes of the group, we may even try ice climbing.
We, Gauthier and Elis, have been working together with an amazing team of IFMGA-certified mountain guides since 2013. We have been providing great mountain experiences in Chamonix and Courmayeur ever since, during the summer and the winter. Determination and passion are the guiding principles of our team and we hope to pass these values on to you and your friends coming to visit our beautiful mountains. Big smiles on everybody’s faces at the end of the day is the best proof of a job well done! Gauthier will be your main point of contact during the booking process and one of the guides in our team (Elis, Daniel, Viktor, Mihnea, Tomas, Robert, Benjamin and Kiriakos) will offer you an unforgettable day in the mountains.
The Mer de Glace ("Sea of Ice") is a valley glacier located on the northern slopes of the Mont Blanc massif, in the French Alps.
