La Flegere Refuge (1877m), Massif du Mont-Blanc

A fully equipped refuge for up to 90 people, easily accessible by cable car

Featured in:

| Updated

Situated right behind the Flegere cable car, this refuge is easily accessible to anyone looking for a mountain experience without straying too far from the beaten path.

The refuge is well equipped in comparison to other shelters; bed linen and hot showers are provided. Accommodation is on a half-board basis only; the refuge has a large sunny terrace where you can enjoy the view while you eat.

Bivouacking is allowed in the vicinity of the refuge, as long as you have cleared it with the guardian first.

Open from mid-June to mid-September. Please enquire directly with the refuge for this season's prices and opening/closing dates.

Worth knowing

The refuge is ideally located for accessing lots of local hikes. The area is in a nature reserve, so you are very likely to see wildlife such as chamois and marmots in the mornings and evenings.

Getting Here


The refuge is just a couple of minutes walk from the top of the Flegere cable car and is very easy to find. Alternatively, you can hike up from Chamonix in a couple of hours, following signposted trails.
