Bossons Glacier (Glacier des Bossons) Tours

Located in the Mont Blanc massif in the French Alps, the Bossons Glacier has the largest altitudinal drop of all the alpine glaciers in Europe and is one of the largest glaciers of the Mont Blanc at approximately 7.5 kilometers long. It is located close to the town of Chamonix, in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.

It is possible to go up 1425 meters in a chairlift to take advantage of an exceptional view of the area’s ice pinnacles and the glacier’s terminal tongue. An interpretative path leads the way to a small chalet, with signs explaining the history of the glacier over the years, until visitors get to the chalet’s outstanding viewing platform. This is also a popular starting point for high-altitude hikes to the mountain’s summit at 2589 meters; it was also the route taken by J. Balmat and Dr. Paccard during the first official ascent of the Mont Blanc back in 1786.
