In Chamonix, an exceptional night in front of the Mer de Glace

The journey to the hotel in the small cog railway is a journey in itself. A time machine, on the trail of the adventurers who set off to climb the highest peaks of the Alps. Nestled at an altitude of 1,913 metres, the renovated old refuge is imbued with the souls of these mountaineers of the last century, some of whose objects have been carefully preserved. From the terrace, glass of génépi in hand, visitors overlook the Mer de Glace with the feeling of being alone in the world. An experience to be shared with a privileged few, around Savoyard gastronomic specialities.

The program? In winter as in summer, this exceptional site is ideal for hiking, skiing or snowshoeing. Dug into the Mer de Glace, a few hundred meters below, the Grotte de Glace is a must. The descent is done by gondola lift or by a path, to take the measure, on foot, of the melting of the glacier. To learn more about the history of the Mer de Glace, the Glaciorium is a space dedicated to glaciology. Once night falls, back at the refuge, the hosts offer their guests reading sessions or board games by the fireplace.

Disconnection level: 1. the network works very well, but no screens are installed in the living rooms or bedrooms.

Price? This escape from the crowds is possible between January 1 and June 25 or between August 30 and December 17. Count 280 € for one night in a double room for 2 people, including dinner (3 courses) and breakfast. Pets are allowed with an extra charge of 15 € per night and per animal. The rack railway is extra, but travellers have the possibility to reach the refuge-hotel on foot during the summer ( 2h30 walk) !
