Hiking on glacier in Alps - Pointe de la Traversière

Why not
to try out the glacier experience ?
After a few metres of walking on uneven surfaces across the Alpine floor, you will reach the mineral world. There are no flowers or plants at this altitude; only the tracks left by the glaciers are visible. This is where the ice walk begins. Accompanied by a mountain guide, you will be equipped with studs, an ice axe and a rope in order to learn the necessary techniques. But more importantly, you will discover another world: ice, snow, crevasses, the rock face that surrounds you and the sheer enormity of the glacier! Before finally experiencing the satisfaction of a victorious arrival at the top with the discovery of an exceptional panoramic view from the top of Grande Motte summit…An experience that will not leave you indifferent !
