La fête des guides de Saint-Gervais, a celebration of daring, camaraderie and passion that reminds us that the horizon is always more beautiful when shared with friends and adventurers.
The event is rich in tradition, recalling the deep roots of the alpine community. Mass is one of the first activities on the program, where guides gather in the local church to pray for their safety in the mountains and to pay tribute to those who have lost their lives in the Alps. It’s a solemn moment that reminds us of the challenges inherent in their profession.
The Fête des Guides de Saint-Gervais/Les Contamines is an exceptional event that brings together the local community and mountain lovers in an exciting three-day celebration.
This deep-rooted tradition in Val Montjoie offers a unique opportunity to pay tribute to mountain guides, those courageous men and women who know the peaks like no other.
