Ice Diving with snowshoe walk and lunch

Activity description

Go for a nice half day of adventures :  climb with snowshoes to the Lac du Lou and explore with your guide the wonders of the mountain, then dive under the ice of the lake. Savoyard lunch included.

Ice diving at the Lac du Lou

Led by a professional guide, you go snowshoeing on an easy trail and gently slope upwards the Lac du Lou (alt. 2035m).

As your ascent goes, civilization become distant and you let yourself be overwhelmed by the mountain landscapes: the Lac du Lou and its refuge welcome you.

Bubbles games and lights ...

Let yourself be mesmerized, safely, by the atmosphere and the quiet of ice diving.

After the safety briefing, we equip you completely: The watertight neoprene drysuit, waterproof gloves and diving mask protect you entirely from ice water. You will have zero contact with the ambient temperature (1° C) and be warm.

Your instructor awaits you in the water. Sitting by the ice hole, the surface-instructor prepares you and makes you slide smoothly through the hole. Immediately assisted beneath, the show is instantly spellbinding. The scenery, the lights and shadows are hypnotizing ... Let your instructor guide you for twenty minutes beneath the ice, play with your own bubbles running on the ceiling ...

After that, you can enjoy a warn savoyard lunch in the Refuge du Lou.

Welcome to the big family of ice diving: you will be awarded an ice diving certificate.
