  • Beautiful bar next to the Bossons glacier. Built in wood and filled with flowering plants. It is decorated with much taste and the prices are not passed as expensive for the place where it is located. Can be accessed with chairlift (12' €50) or a foot, costs 1'45 h round-trip. The view of Chamonix is very nice.

  • Access to the cottage and the of Bossons Glacier by a trail (for nons athletes count about 50 minutes to 1 h 30) but the climb is rewarded with an exceptional landscape with amazing views of the glacier

  • Starting point of the trail admiring the Bossons glacier, true spectacle of nature. The chalet offers a good refreshment, the staff is very personable and friendly.
