Camping in unspoilt nature

Camping in the middle of unspoilt nature and under the stars: At campsite Des Glaciers, you camp with the ultimate sense of freedom. Non-demarcated pitches of varying sizes lie scattered over the beautiful and vast campsite grounds. Choose for a spot in the shade of the pine forest or in the sunny meadow. 

The view of the mountaintops and the glacier from your camping pitch is truly phenomenal, whether you're located at the edge of the forest or on an open field.

For campers looking to get even higher...

One of the two playgrounds on the campsite features a large climbing wall. A fun way to get some practice in before tackling the mountains. This climbing wall, which you climb with the necessary safety precautions, is also a favourite with children. You will also find a tree-top adventure course with a zip-line and a large inflatable air cushion.

Swiss cuisine

Bread and a small selection of groceries is available at the reception. You can do the rest of your grocery shopping in the small supermarket in the village, a ten-minute walk from the campsite. Here you will also find several restaurants where you can enjoy the Swiss cuisine.

Travelling party: Family with children, various ages

Located in a valley, sorrounded by epic Swiss mountains, camping des Glaciers is by far the best camp site I\\\'ve ever been to. It has immaculate toilets, sinks and showers, as well as clean washings facilities and shared fridges in several places around the camp, you can camp in the forest and in a field, there are also 2 playgrounds for kids and you can buy day passes that has access to tones of activities including ski lifts, mountain scooters, tree top high wire and visits to a saint Bernard\\\'s museum as well as lots of recommended walks in the scenery near by.

Travelling party: Couple

The area of the campsite is huge. Yet, they allocate only small area for walker\\\'s tents between the shower building and dining building which is not enough. The rest is occupied by camp trucks. As a result walkers and cyclists have to set their tents too close to each other. I think, they should extend the area for walkers.
The price is for 2 persons in one tent. The showers are free. There is a washing machine and tumble dryer (use coins). There is practically no food to buy. Croissants can be ordered in the evening.

Reaction from the campsite April 16, 2019

Thank you for your comment. We are happy you apreciate the sanitary and personnal. We\'ll try to keep more space for walker\'s tent. It is only difficult between 20/07 and 5/08 because of the very high season. In the village (5\' walk) we have a little supermarket.
