“A must see when in chamonix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

The most important thing is that you need to go on a bright sunny day when there are no clouds. The weather forecast of chamonix official site comes to your aid and should be used when planning a trip to Aiguille de Midi. It is an experience which cannot be missed.

“Awsome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Excellent trip, not to be missed! Beware taking small children up as they will most likely experience breathing difficulties. Be sure to wander around all the tunnels, there are other lifts and viewing platforms to explore.

“Over the top”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

The panorama is stunning, while you ascend by the Téléférique: you get to more than 3800 mt, and can walk around the peak of the Aguille. White in white, it seems you can fly, and at your feet you see the valley of Chamonix

“WOW!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

My wife and I decided to take the kids up to Aiguille De Midi on a beautiful clear day this May. All I can say is wow what a trip, I hate heights but after semi conquering my fears I stepped on the cable car and climbed to the very top. The views were amazing and the experience of being so high up was truely sensational. I would recommend this to anyone, my daughter aged now 3 loved being there and when we came down we could not stop talking about our experience.

it was alittle expensive, but as a trip i would do it again.
