In Chamonix valley, going down the Vallée Blanche is an unmissable excursion. Usually for skiers, we offer good hikers the opportunity to experience it with snowshoes. With your mountain guide, you will discover the beauty of the huge Geant glacier, going down to the Mer de Glace ("sea of ice"), on the largest permanent snowfield in France, surrounded by several mythical peaks (Mont Blanc, Grandes Jorasses, Aiguille Verte...). During the evenings in the huts, you will admire the sunsets on the great panoramas.
