On our way to the glacier.

The winter is approaching and I’m panicking just the thought of snow and minus degres! Luckly we are flying to Thailand escaping the cold for a couple of weeks! I asked my husband David to make a list of activities we could do this coming winter with our one years old daughter Mirabelle. The first thing on the list is snowshoeing to the amazing Zinal glacier in Switzerland! It’s an easy walk with beautiful surrounding for around 2 1/2 hours to the glacier. The starting point is at Zinal village near the Pont de Singline. You can do this hike every winter and never get bored because the cave will be different every year since the snow will melt and form and shape new caves. If you are a first timer on a pair of snowshoe there are alot of guided tour but if you already have experiences with snowshoeing and mountains the hike is doable without a guide. Just remember to call the tourist information about the risk of avalanche before you head out.

Vintern närmar sig och bara tanken av snö och minus grader ger mig panik! Som tur flyger vi till Thailand och flyr kylan i några veckor! Jag bad min man David att skriva en lista på vad vi kan göra på vintern med våran ett åriga dotter Mirabelle. Först på listan är att snöskoa till fantiska Zinal glaciären i Schweiz! Det är en enkel vandring med vackra vyer som tar ungefär 2 1/2 timmar till glaciären. Vandringen börjar vid byn Zinal vid Pont de Singline. Man kan besöka isgrottorna varje vinter och aldrig bli uttråkad för att isen smällter, bildar och formar grottor olika varje år. Om ni inte är vana med att snöskoa finns det många guided tour men om ni redan har erfarenheter tycker jag att man kan gå utan en guide. Kom bara ihåg att kolla först med turist informationen om risker med snöravin innan ni går iväg! Mer info om guided tour : http://m.valdanniviers.ch/tourism/trip-inside-zinal-glacier.html

    I am just so overwhelmed by the simply stunning scenery here. Your photos of this fantastic experience are so beautifully captured. So amazing. I can’t imagine anyone not wanting to see and experience this at least once in their lifetime.

    I have actually never been snowshoeing before but I love exploring ice caves and glaciers and the photos you have captured here is stunning. Where are you planning to go next?
