“A stunning location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Chamonix is an exceptional places to visit both in winter and in summer. We visit every year in the winter and the snow is often brilliant. With a range of ski resorts easily assecible by car or bus the mountains are at your doorstep.

In the summer too the main lifts are often open and the mountains can be explored by foot. The hiking is exceptional as is the range of watersport activites such as canyoning and white water rafting. I recommend them all.

“get up there early”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We went up on one of the first cars - it gets busy up there and please remember - the air is very thin - so slow down and take it easy.

“Wonderfu & Inspiring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

I found a real gem. Lots to do in Chamonix shop-wise with stunning views and nearby treks. Recommend you take the cable car mid-way up Le Brevent and walk higher if you can. Otherwise just relax and enjoy the splendour of the mountain scenery. Nice restaurant and shop on route. One can just chill or be active: I visited in the summer season without the snow and ski activities. Would certainly return.
