Refuge de Montenvers - Overnight Glacier Experience  

France, Chamonix



Spend an unforgettable night in the newly renovated Refuge du Montenvers, sitting on the edge of the Mer de Glace, high in the Chamonix Alps. Watch the sun go down over the majestic glacier, followed by a three course dinner and some star gazing. Enjoy a hearty buffet breakfast in the morning before venturing to the ice caves or exploring the footpaths before the crowds appear.

In order to reach the Refuge guests must take the Montenvers Railway (ticket not included) to either the mid-station (then a 2 hour walk) or to the top station. A backpack with a change of clothes and overnight essentials is recommended plus good walking shoes. Details of rail times and prices can be found here.
