Discovering the Caves of the Zinal Glacier


Keep a day free and strap on your snowshoes for an amazing guided hike into the Zinal Glacier ! A unique winter experience!

At 2½ hours’ walking distance from Zinal, the Zinal glacier originates from the encounter of 3 glaciers:

The glacier offers some natural caves carved by the stream flowing out. Access is not possible in summer, but in winter snow-shoes hikes are organized on a regular basis.

The hike takes 5 hours with 500 m height difference, on about 11 km, only in good weather conditions.
