To reach the Mer Glace, you will first take the famous red train of the Montenvers  (for the moment it does not require any effort). The hike is at 1 800 m of altitude. To do this hike, we ask to our clients to be able to hike for approximatively 4 to 5 hours with a low drop (that’s not a big deal). The Mer de Glace hiking is also the perfect place to learn, to improve spiking technic and to be initiated to ice climbing !
