Straddling the French and Swiss border, this is a mixed course of snow and rock without major technicalities or difficulties.
During this 2 day journey, we will discover the extent of the Tour glacier and the majestic peaks surrounding it. We spend the night in a mountain refuge built on a rocky outcrop overlooking the glacier.
