Refuge de Plan Glacier

  • Refuge
Elevation : 2680m
74170 Saint-Gervais-les-Bains
Plan Glacier is an old-fashioned refuge, a simple wooden refuge like you don’t see anymore. The comfort is basic, but one comes there to find an authentic mountain experience, to live the conviviality of the moments shared in small committee in the simple beauty of the nature.
It is a refuge where we sleep against each other in a small dormitory of 18 beds. There are no showers and the dry toilets are rudimentary.
The refuge is accessible by a demanding hike, one of the most beautiful in the massif. It crosses alpine meadows and culminates in a high mountain landscape. Mountaineering is possible from the refuge. Wildlife is often present in the vicinity of these trails, which are of geological and historical interest.
You will find a warm welcome and delicious...
