Champex-Lac, a treasure trove of alpine treasures in the Grand Entremont

Description

Champex-Lac, with its magnificent lake, is located on the heights of Orsières and invites you to rediscover the essence of the beginnings of alpine tourism over a century ago.

You get there on your own (if you come by bus, tell the driver your hotel so that he can drop you off). At your destination, you will discover the authentic and friendly Hôtel du Glacier, where you will take up residence. For 6 generations, the Biselx family has been welcoming visitors in the hotel tradition of the early days of tourism in our country.

The same evening or the next day, depending on your wishes, you will enjoy a local meal in the hotel's restaurant.

After a refreshing night's sleep, you can explore the alpine garden. If you feel like it, you can then go up to La Breya, either on foot or by chairlift (depending on opening hours), or even enjoy a short hike in the green Val d'Arpette. The didactic routes (Charlotte the marmot, the soothsayers or the trappers) are attractive walking alternatives. Let the Biselx family advise you according to your mood. If conditions permit, you can also enjoy a pedal boat ride on the lake. With the St. Bernard Summer Pass offered in this package, all these activities are available at your discretion.

After a second night in Champex-Lac, you will return to Orsières, where you will be offered a visit to the cheese dairy, with a tasting of a local raclette and a fendant. You will be able to take your scraping diploma!
