Chamonix lies in one of the most spectacular valleys of the French Alps. The area is dominated by deeply crevassed glaciers and the snow covered peak of Mont Blanc. The Aiguille du Midi is a solitary spire of rock near Mont Blanc’s summit. Not only does it have postcard-perfect views, it just happens to be the highest cable car in the Alps, giving access to the 22km run in ‘La Vallee Blanche’ perhaps one of the most famous off piste ski descents in the world.
Chamonix is the perfect place to come for a weekend break, week’s holiday or even a longer, seasonal stay. This lively alpine town offers something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for sport or a stroll, adventure or relaxation, Chamonix offers a selection of fantastic summer and winter activities.
