From the Moiry dam, travelling by car or postbus via the delightful village of Grimentz, it takes just 10 minutes to reach this majestic glacier, which flows down the Pointe de Mourti, ending in a glacier tongue, moraine and the glacial lake that feeds the Lac de Moiry. A snack bar there has parasol-shaded tables from which you can admire this natural wonder. The glacier is also the starting-point for several mountain hikes, including one to the Moiry mountain hut. The road to the dam, and therefore to the glacier, is closed in winter.
