At a unique location amongst the highest peaks of the Swiss Alps, in the south-western part of the country, lies mountain campsite Des Glaciers. This is a fully-equipped campsite with a friendly atmosphere. The campsite is located at an elevation of 1600 metres. Here, you camp in the heart of the Val Ferret, a valley in the Mont Blanc massif. A true paradise for mountain climbers and hikers. There are also trails for less experienced mountaineering enthusiasts.

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.

Site spectaculaire et très calme pour ce camping de montagne. Une partie en terrasses direction les glaciers et une partie plus plate avec de beaux arbres. Sanitaires très propres et accueil chaleureux. Point de départ pour de nombreuses randonnées. Petit supermarché a 8mn.

Prachtige ruim opgezette camping midden in de natuur aan de voet van de gletsjer. Bijna alle plaatsen hebben stroom (wel zorgen voor een lange kabel) Toiletten en sanitair is schoon en voldoet. De douches onder de receptie, zouden gescheiden moeten worden van de toiletten) Verder een unieke locatie, waar wij graag nog een keer naar terug zouden gaan. Toplocatie!

Accueil très sympathique et convivial, avec le sourire - ce qui n'est très souvent pas le cas, dans d'autres campings - et tout est mis en œuvre pour nous satisfaire. Les sanitaires sont toujours propres. L'aspect délimité des place est naturel et pas aligné par des haies qui bouchent la vue. Les emplacements que nous avons eus étaient spacieux. Bref, nous nous sommes beaucoup plu dans ce camping. Félicitations à l'équipe.

Bedankt voor de digitale nota en de prachtige tijd, 10 overnachtingen begin september 2016, op jullie camping Des Glaciers op loopafstand van La Fouly. Prachtig weer, prachtige omgeving met erg veel mooie wandelpaden, ook vanaf of dichtbij de camping, met verschillende moeilijkheidsgraden. Ruime camping waarbij je zelf je plekje mocht en kon uitzoeken. Keuze uit dichtbij sanitair of wat verder weg. Mooie intieme plekjes voor alleen jou caravan/tent, maar indien gewenst ook een groter veld zonder afscheidingen. Auto bij de hand en een watertappunt in de buurt. Op sommige plaatsen wel een verlengsnoer voor de elektriciteit gewenst. 's Morgens een heerlijk vers broodje op bestelling.
Kortom: een prima vakantie en kampeerplek en voor herhaling vatbaar.
