The must-haves

These emblematic places are the very source of Chamonix's development.

And can be reached by cable car, gondola or train... you don't have to be a mountain climber to go up so high! Beware of mountain sickness for young children.

The Aiguille du Midi (3842 m)

from the Aiguille du Midi cable car (the highest in Europe), reach the four panoramic terraces for a 360° view of the French, Swiss and Italian summits. From there, visit the "Vertical Lab" and don't miss the brand new "Pas dans le vide"!

The White Valley (3842 m)

The longest ski descent in the world on unmarked, ungroomed and unsecured terrain. 24 kilometers on glacier from the Aiguille du Midi to Chamonix. 4 to 6 hours (2,800 meters of ascent).

For those who are less athletic, take the Vallée Blanche from the Aiguille du Midi cable car to the Helbronner point and then to Courmayeur (Italy), with a breathtaking view.

The Sea of Ice

Access from the Montenvers train station: a quick ascent by rack and pinion train.

Near the Chalets Aquarelle

The ascent of Mont Blanc

Follow in the footsteps of the best mountaineers and live an extraordinary experience in the company of a high mountain guide.

The Mont Blanc Tramway

One of the oldest ski lifts and the highest cogwheel train in France.

The Brevent cable car and the Planpraz cable cars

Embark on these lifts for the view of the Mont Blanc and the Aiguille du Midi. A nice itinerary to take beautiful pictures.


Throughout the year, Chamonix is surrounded by cultural and sporting events bringing together different nationalities: climbing or paragliding competitions, running or trail-running, jazz or electronic festivals, test sessions, parties and cultural evenings... Make your stay more dynamic with the annual program!
