Vallee Blanche in summer, glacier travel and hiking on glaciers with a Chamonix guide

Across the Vallée Blanche

Vallée Blanche in summer, this is the traverse of the glacier of Géant (the Giant), we start from Aiguille du Midi for going to the italian board, at the Helbronner peak, summit of the italian cable car of the Mont Blanc.

This is easy hiking on glacier except the descent of the ridge of aiguille du Midi which is steeper and spectacular on the both sides: North face on Chamonix side and South side on the Vallee Blanche. : but it's very short and on a kind of ridge like this, the guide is qualified to secure you for those few meters.

We start from altitude 3842 for descending to 3250 meters and ascending to 3450. For going back to France we are taking the gondala (bubbles) which crosses the Vallée Blanche with a different view.  If this is easy, we are walking with a tight rope all the way for avoiding any problem with the crevasses. This is a fantastic glacier travel and this is a must. If you just spend one day in the high mountains: do this.

The photos about all "glacier travel" pages have been taken  in the Vallée Blanche last summer.

It's also possible to sleep in a hutte ( Cosmiques in France 3600m or Torino in Italy 3350m) and like that you spend 2 days in the highest mountains of Chamonix.

The guide price is only for the guiding fees. You must add the fees for the lifts; eventually the half board in hutte and the rental of the equipment (boots and crampons); the guide can take 4 personns on this  trip.

This glacier travel is not difficult and all the hikers with a good health are able to do it. I'm available for any other informations.

Because of the conditions of the mountain, the level of the group and others, the guide could organize a different planing.
