Sunrise is a gift offered to us by Mother Nature, but has to be deserved by getting up early in the morning. The sky is lit up with flamboyant colours until the first rays appear. It is all the more beautiful from the top of a mountain. Mont-Fort, with its 360 degree panoramic view over the most beautiful peaks in the Alps (Matterhorn, Dent Blanche, Grand Combin and Mont-Blanc in particular), is an ideal spot!
Departing from Siviez, the ski lifts take you up to 3,330 metres above sea level by taking the Tortin chairlift, the Gentianes cable car and then the Mont-Fort cable car.
From up there, take a deep breath of fresh air and admire the sunrise to the sound of the alphorn. After enjoying this pure magical moment, take the cable car back down to the Gentianes restaurant to enjoy a hearty breakfast.
You can choose between a continental or American breakfast. The continental breakfast consists of a mini-croissant, mini chocolate bread, mini-brioche, yoghurt, muesli, Iris fruit juice, butter, jam and honey. The American breakfast includes a mini-croissant, salmon and dill cream bread, multigrain roll, scrambled eggs, grilled bacon, cheese, muesli, Iris fruit juice, yoghurt, butter, jam and honey.
Then, from the Col des Gentianes, you have the choice of descending to the Chaux (Verbier) or to the Tortin (Siviez) by cable car which runs every 30 minutes from 08:45.
It is possible to combine this activity with a yoga class. The lesson takes place on the summit of Mont-Fort with Emilien Badoux. It takes place just after sunrise and lasts one hour. A yoga mat is provided by the organiser.
