ATTENTION. YOU WILL NEED to bring with you an avalanche equipment (DVA, shovel and probe) and your own racquets and ski sticks.

This hiking will be guided by a professional guide from the Swiss Mountain Guides Association, which will do for us an introduction about how to planifie a hiking with racquets by your own, how to use a DVA, shovel and probe in case of avalanche. And she will describe all the paysage, flora and fauna around us.

Landscapes around us are going to be insane and you will be glad to do this hiking ^^

The places are limited so I recommend you to book as soon as possible in order to guarantee your place.

Only for medium-high physical fitness.
