Plaine Morte - the Glacier area
Located at nearly 3,000 metres above sea level, the Plaine-Morte Glacier is one of the few glaciers to be flat. Easily accessible from the ski lifts, both skiers and pedestrians are offered a high-mountain experience accessible to all. With its sleigh dogs, its igloo village, its ice cave, its cross-country ski slopes, its snowshoe trails and its restaurant serving authentic fondues, the Glacier area will peak the interest of young and old alike.

This is THE big novelty for winter. An igloo village was constructed on the Plaine Morte Glacier. Come and spend a night in this magical village for a unique experience. There are two options available, the “Far North” experience for the more adventurous, and the “Hygge” experience for those who want to have a cosy time and spend a timeless night.

In summer, it is a space with a little lunar sides that you will have the opportunity to discover while climbing up to 3000m. From the Plaine Morte, several hiking trails are accessible. Walks on the glacier are also organized by the Swiss Ski School (ESS). During the whole summer, events are proposed to you such as a sunrise or a bivouac experience. The Plaine Morte restaurant is open and suggests various Valaisan fondues and planchettes throughout the summer season.
