“Amazing views at the top of Europe (for mortals)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2014 NEW

Going up to the Aguile du Midi for sightseeing is a must when in Chamonix, even when the skiing is OK! Amazing to see the ridge allowing you to ski down the Vallee Blanche, but also the ultimate hurdle for those that ventured up the Mont Blanc, but that have to climb up this ..... ridge when having achieved or failed to master the Mont Blanc.

“Amazing scenery - A must DO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2014 NEW

Even though the lines are long (you have to queue for the tickets first, and then to queue to get in the cabin), even though the rates are high (52€ per adult return ticket to the top), this is a place to go!
The maginificient Alps on a 360° view are worth it. It is cold in the winter, be careful.
The exhibitions are interesting too.

“Stupendous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2014

Absolutely loved the time I spent travelling up to this spot. Unfortunately couldn't quite see Mont Blanc on the day, but just being in the vicinity and seeing everything that was visible was unforgettable. A must do for everyone!

“A life highlight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2014

If you are not a skier, this is the star of a stay in Chamonix. What a ride, what a view! Watch the dizziness at the top at about 3580m. If the sky is clear, then the view to Mont Blanc and the village below is amazing
