Glacier walks and hikes

From the top station (Col des Ruillans 3211 m) of the Téléphériques des Glaciers de la Meije there is easy access to the Girose glacier. Start by exploring the ice cave where the tunnels and sculptures are carved anew every year. To take a closer look at the crevasses, book a glacier walk with the Mountain Guides. This requires no technical knowledge and children are admitted from 6 years. To reach a little higher, opt for a glacier hike where you will also learn about the basics of walking on a glacier.

The Ice Cave will not open the summer of 2020.
