Glacier hiking

"The Vanoise Range is almost custom made for one's first forays into the high-mountains. The approaches are suited for most hikers and the basic skill required is simply being able to walk 6 to 8 hours on rugged yet easy technical terrain.
This is where the term "glacier hiking" takes on all its full meaning and interest! Still hiking, not yet full-on mountaineering, simply put one foot in front of the other with the goal of discovering, in ideal conditions, the extraordinary landscapes located above the alpine meadows and pastures."
Excerpt from "Sommets de Vanoise" (Peaks in the Vanoise Range), published by Editions Glénat in 2002.

For all those who would like to go even higher and discover the unbelievable experience of walking on a glacier, your dreams will come true with the high-mountain guides from Pralognan-la-Vanoise.
Walking roped up and with crampons on your feet is possible for any fit hiker as young as 10/12 years old.
After meeting with your guide at the mountain hut the day before your excursion, you will enjoy, the next day, applying their tips and instruction by climbing one of the Vanoise Range’s summits like a real mountaineer!
