Activity description

Go on a 2-day snowshoeing excursion in Val Ferret in the Aosta Valley (Italy) with a mountain guide and spend the night at the Bonatti refuge.

The snowy mountain is a world of fragile & ephemeral beauty, with a very particular atmosphere. Progressing along a ridge, making your trails in the snow, climbing a summit... From the discovery walk to the ascension scale, snowshoeing is accessible to all and opens up countless opportunities to travel the winter mountains.

Xavier Gadat, your mountain guide, offers 2 days in the mountains, on the "other side" of the Mont-Blanc massif, facing south and the Aosta Valley! 45 minutes from Chamonix, you find yourself in Val Ferret (probably one of the most beautiful valleys of the Alps) facing the imposing southern faces of Mont Blanc interspersed with gigantic glaciers such as Grandes Jorasses, Dent du Géant, Noire de Peuterey offering an extraordinary setting.

2 days of easy snowshoeing with a night in the famous Bonatti refuge, a beautiful traditional stone and wooden building nestled at the entrance to the Malatra valley just above 2000 metres altitudes. Enjoy traditional cuisine with Italian specialties, Valle d'Aosta wines, hot showers, comfortable rooms or dormitories, and spend a friendly evening in the big, heated dining room with a large ceramic stove.
