Day 1 : Climb to the bivouac site
From 200 to 500m of D+ 1h30 to 2h of walking
Departure briefing at 10am at the Auberge des Glières on the Glières plateau. This moment will be the occasion to check the equipment of each participant and to distribute the material for the two days to be distributed in our backpacks (min 70L).
After the departure briefing, we start our ascent towards our bivouac place. We will evolve between forest and alpine pastures off-trail, in a virgin and preserved environment. Then, the view opens up on the surrounding mountains. It is time to find the ideal place to set up our bivouac. In the afternoon, we will build our snow shelter, make a table in the snow for the meal, enjoy the evening colors while making the aperitif, share a good meal and enjoy the show that nature offers us.
Night in an igloo.
Day 2 : Return
From 200 to 500m of D- 1h to 1h30 of walking
After a good night in your cold sleeping bags, you will be the first to watch the sun rise over Mont Blanc! What a privilege! After breakfast, you will have to set up camp in order to get back to the start of the day before with a head full of beautiful memories.
End of the stay at the end of the morning.
