This snowshoe adventure dining for beginners takes three hours. Eventhough the Cerro hut is not too far from the carpark, the atmosphere once you enter the forrest takes you to another dimension. The sound of the busy road is replaced by the sound of powerful streams coming down from the Glacier des Bossons. I don't want to spoil you too much but the Cerro looked like a Pirate boat to me the first time I saw it in 2018. If the snow conditions are good, we can take a closer look to the glacier. If it is not possible, I will still tell you everything I know about the story of the Cerro and its glacier nearby.

This snowshoe adventure dining is for people who like having a physical activity. It takes five hours to have time to navigate through the forrest. The track is not too challenging but can be really steep time to time. The Chapeau Hut has a priceless location not too far from civilization but still remote enough to enjoy the calm and the beauties of the mountains. I have known Thierry for a long time now and I use to visit him at least once a month to appreciate both the view and his "cuisine"!

  • Two courses dinner with homemade aperitif and drinks
  • Snowshoeing equipment (snowshoes or crampons, poles)
  • Leading
  • Transportation
