Chamonix is a beautiful place. The town folks are friendly and welcoming, most being able to speak multiple languages which is extremely useful for travellers. Me and my family was sad to leave and can't wait to go back!

There are significant problems with snow for skiing in the Alps at the moment (22 Dec 14) and Chamonix only has a few runs open at Grand Montet and to be quite honest the pistes are pretty awful. I can accept this as this is clearly not within their control - but to continue to ask holiday makers to pay... More

Location surrounded by extraordinary mountains, great restaurants, nice environment. Hotels with a reasonable price, restaurants with good quality food. Option of various sports or just visit the place.

Used to buy my ticket on spot at the airport and this year decided to buy it online. cham-transfers-con is only 15€ (you can even buy it cheaper apparently...) instead of 30€ if you buy at the airport. Had a good service so I advice you for this Chamonix transfer company departing from Geneva.

We arrived in Chamonix without having a hotel, so we just tried our best. We ended up at Le Prieuré and got a room with amazing view towards Mont Blanc.

When we got there, I fell in love with this town immediately. The ambience is very cozy and warm, though it was a bit chilly. You can take cable car to the top of aiguille du Midi. From there you can start your mountains climbing journey or just simply enjoy your coffee with view to Mont Blanc. Despite of known... More

One of the best places I've been. The air is fresh and thin. Beautiful scenery and a good climb. Easy routes to the summit. Accessible by car and safe parking. Camped in the valley before going up. There's a wood hut you can stay in though before it gets steep if you want some luxury. Think you've got to pay... More

astounding exhibition at the museum Maison de la Memoire et du Patrimoine in Chamonix. Victorian 3D images showing mountaineers, glaciers, skiers etc Never realised that 150 years ago 3D was so popular.

Chamonix is one the most amazing villages in the French Alps, its the sight seeing from the peak is jaw-dropping. The village center will give u one of the best entertainment and shopping experience ever. I had the best festive experience ever.
