We will take the world famous Aiguille du Midi cable car to the top of the Aiguille du Midi. From here we traverse the Vallé Blanche via the ultra-scenic Hellbronner cable cars- suspended above vast alpine glaciers and surrounded by Chamonix’s tallest, steepest peaks.
Upon arriving on the other (Italian) side of the Vallé Blanche, we access the glaciers via an elevator and a short walk. Voila! We’re on the snow, and will do some high altitude glacier trekking with the guide. Ropes and harnesses for safe glacier travel, and under the careful supervision of our UIAGM guides, you’re mountaineering in high altitude! An italian espresso keeps energy levels high before an unforgettable cable car return to Chamonix.
No prior glacier trekking experience is required.
