Useful information


Depending on your budget and the type of accommodation you are looking for, we will assist you and suggest the best hotels and/or chalets. You could also choose to stay in a refuge for a couple of nights. They are usually cheaper than chalets and hotels. We will advise you on each region depending on your preferences.

Fees / Insurance

A daily fee of 150 Euros per day and per group (not to exceed 6 people) applies for the organization of a trip, taxes not included; 30% must be paid upon booking.
The fee includes:

  • the conception and realization of the trip (selecting itineraries and advising on accommodation),
  • shuttle transfers from the accommodation to the start of tour,
  • Dominique Chaffard will be escorting each tour.

The fee remains the same regardless of the number of participants (6 guests maximum).

Tours of glaciers and heliski trips require professional guiding. Please note that the cost of hiring a professional will be added to your daily fee, and is usually somewhere around €280 before tax.

Additional costs:

  • accommodation
  • for ski outings: ski hire, ski passes and ski insurance (compulsory, very cheap and directly added to the cost of the ski pass as an extra option).


For participants living in a different country, Geneva and Munich airports offer the best connections. There are shuttle services that can take you directly to your accommodation. Once on location, we will take care of all travel arrangements.


Equipment can be rented on location.
We will advise you on what to take with you.

The organizer will discuss the needs of his guests and will have the final say on what itinerary is most suited for them. We will be as flexible and compliant as possible to try and fulfill everyone's wishes, however please note that the weather forecast and the length of each trip will also have to be taken into consideration.
