Visit to the caves of the Zinal glacier with Daniel Ruppen

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

Lying 2½ hours’ walk from Zinal, the Zinal glacier originates from the meeting-point of 3 glaciers:
• The Grand Cornier glacier
• The Durand glacier
• The Mountet glacier

The glacier has several natural cavities hollowed out by the streams that flow beneath. Access is not possible in summer, but in winter snow-shoes hikes are organised on a regular basis to the glacier.

This hike does not require any particular training. It should be noted that it involves 5 hours’ walking and 500 m height difference, about 11 km.

Only with good weather conditions.

Bring your picnic.
