One of our top destinations is definitely Chamonix, the best skiing and mountaineering capital of the world. In Chamonix, the spectacle is permanent. Simply looking up allows you to admire the panorama renowned across the globe. This local natural attraction constantly attracts tourists and skiers from all over the world.
Each year, millions of visitors and holiday-goers make the trip to admire the roof of Europe.
Mont Blanc and its 4,810 m of altitude are the third most visited natural site in the world. Plenty of high-mountaineering enthusiasts meet in the streets of cosmopolitan Chamonix.
Here there is so much to see and so much to do. Take, for instance, the Mer de Glace (the largest snow glacier in France) accessed by a rack-and-pinion railway; the Aiguille du Midi and its cable car route that starts in the centre of Chamonix; the lakes and waterfalls of the Mont Blanc massif that can be discovered through hiking; or even the Vallée Blanche, perfect for off-trail hiking.
In Chamonix, skiing and an array of other great outdoor activities appeal to a large audience.
The Valley, on the other hand, is a great giant playground for skiers and high mountain enthusiasts. Snowshoeing, tobogganing, trail running, ski-joëring, dog sledging, mountaineering, scenic flights, canyoning, paragliding, mountain biking, golf or even climbing on frozen waterfalls make the four seasons of Chamonix intense in discovery and emotion.
More than 2.5 million visitors come on holidays to ski, mountaineer, hike, or simply enjoy this unique landscape and great view in France each year. The station area and town has a capacity of 60,000 beds in chalet accommodation across the resort.
In 2017, a team of surveyors reassessed the altitude of Mont-Blanc upwards. With its height of 4,810 meters, it is definitily not at risk of loosing its honorary title of 'The Roof of Europe'.
The little Montenvers cog train will take you to the "Refuge du Montenvers", at the foot of the Mer de Glace in the French alps. Here we suggest you enjoy a creamy polenta during the day or night!
The mountain range, Mont Blanc Massif reflecting on Lac Blanc is the ultimate reason for its international fame. Plan and gear up with good walking shoes to admire this view, a must do activity during your holidays.
