Spend half a day there and you will have one of the best nature experiences this area has to offer! It is so so beautiful. It is only around 2 km up but the view is fantastic. A train will take you there easily within max 30 mins. I went in the summertime and the colours were amazing. I can... More

Avoid the rush...get out early to avoid the queues. There are 420 steps down and back up. It is worth the effort. However this has made us think about global warming.....thaat out teenage children may not be zble to visit this wonderful sight again.

Hurry up guys! In 10 years there might be no more ice!!! I remember being there 40 years ago when the glacier was still 50 m thicker. Now it looks as if it will disappear soon, what a pitty!

There are more beautiful glaciers in the Chamonix area, but this is the one which is most accessible. Sit on the left side of the train while climbing up for enjoying mist of the views. Pack a lunch. Take the walk down to the glacier from the station, and take the gondola back up. The only thing sad is how... More

This is well worth a visit. You can go inside a glacier but you have to walk down and up some 400 steps. The views are stunning.

This is a great experience for most ages. Our 10 and 12 year old kids were impressed with the cave and did not complain about being tired, bored or hungry.....could not stop being amazed. Must see!!!

Great off piste skiing from the Aiguille de midi with some amazing views of the Mont Blanc range. Unless you are very familiar with the actual ski, Definitely go with a ski guide to prevent any possible nasty accidents (We witnessed someone who was skiing on their own have a heart attack and be airlifted off the mountain). If you're... More
