- Alpine setting site in a walkers' paradise
- Spectacular mountain views among the Mont Blanc massif
- Several walks and hikes starting straight from the site
'Spectacular' barely even covers the jaw-dropping vistas at this splendid Swiss site. Set a few minutes' walk from the swish resort of La Fouly in the Mont Blanc massif, Camping des Glaciers is surrounded by stunning mountain peaks, under deep blue skies and among blazes of colourful flowers: it's not a massif stretch to see why it's been described as 'one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed' by a highly impressed former guest.
This beaut place is 1,600 metres above sea level, in a peaceful and quiet wildlife haven bordering Italy and France. You absolutely have to hike while you're here, as the surroundings are first-rate and the paths aplenty; several walks and hikes start directly from the site. Or there's rock climbing, mountain biking, treetop adventuring, and – an absolute must – taking a guided walk with a handsome St Bernard dog: this part of Switzerland is the Pays du St-Bernard, after all...
Camping des Glaciers pitches are set between hedgerows along the river or on terraces in a meadow; large caravans are welcome. Guests all have access to smart, modern and spotless amenities including hot water, free showers and a baby changing room, along with a covered washing-up area and a launderette. As befits such a beaut setting, barbecues are allowed so you can eat alfresco – pretty much mandatory among views such as these.
Other facilities include a free wifi, a small kiosk at reception and bread for sale, and a living area with TV and internet corner to retreat back to after a long day's hiking or a serious cuddling session with one of the local St Bernards. There's also a big and well-equipped playground: if you're staying on site for the day, take the kids along to swing about here while you lie back and soak up more of those fine mountain views.
Open from 09/05/2018 to 30/09/2018

Party: 2 adults
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From Geneva, follow the directions to Lausanne-Martigny-Rte du St Bernard. In Orsières continue towards Val Ferret-La Fouly. In La Fouly, follow the signs for the campsite.
Camping des Glaciers is less than a kilometre from the Swiss Val Ferret resort of La Fouly: start off at the tourist office to see what's on offer in and around the town from the heady local mixture of sports, strolls, nature spotting and birdwatching. There's also the option of joining one of the many local events such as venison hikes through the valley or daily brunch at the Ars pasture – and speaking of local gastronomy, check out the regional AOC raclette cheese while you're here.
A stay in these parts will have you in Tour du Mont-Blanc territory too if you're up for tackling part of one of the nest-known long-distance walks in Europe, covering around 170 kilometres around the Mont Blanc massif and passing through Switzerland, Italy and France. Taking the TMB in a clockwise direction from La Fouly will lead to over the Grand Col Ferret into Italy, climbing up almost 1,000 metres on a trek of three or four hours.
For a gentler time, make your way to the three valley lakes of the Lacs de Fenêtre for waterside strolls and yet more spectacular views; for an even more adrenalised time, book a solo or tandem paragliding session 20 minutes' drive away in Orsières.
