Our adventure begins in Martigny, where our group will do a gear check before taking a taxi to the Mauvoisin dam (5,922 ft / 1,805 m). From there, we’ll embark on a delightful hike along the lakeside, guiding you to the Chanrion hut perched at 8,077 ft (2,462 m). This initial day offers an easy start without any glacier hiking, allowing us to cover 4.9 miles (8 km) in comfort. The accommodation is cozy, and the evening meal promises to be a delightful introduction to the trip and to the squad for the next four days.
