Busy cable car. Start of many treks

The Flegere cable car was the starting point for a lot of our hikes. It got very busy and it was too crowded. We did like how close it was to Chamonix.

The cablecars in the Chamonix area are very nice and works very good, the only problem is that it´s to expensive. I think it´s much more expensive here than in the rest of the alps.

This is a busy cable car, popular for going to Lac Blanc. It is a lovely setting. There is a cafe and seating area at the top with amazing views.

The cable car itself is maybe not all that exciting but I give it 5 stars because you can do the Grand Balcon Sud hike starting from here to Planpraz. If you have a multipass, the lift up to L'Index is a nice little sidetrip too. We went in August and there were tons of wild blueberry bushes along the... More

A totally different view from that of the "du Midi" but in someways equally as beautiful. Buy a multiple day pass and be sure to take this car to the top. We watched paragliders prepare and take off. We watched climbers practicing self arrest with ice axes, and we saw the incredible beauty of the mountain.

Excellent views on the Mont Blanc and the Mer de Glace from La Flégère. Fast, easy, and you are far above the crowd of Chamonix.

Go up to the mid station and take a trail to Brevent. The trail from Flegere to Brevent is quite easy, 2 hours for normal walkers, almost no elevation difference. Amazing views of the Mont Blanc and Chamonix Valley all the way.

Very nice, somewhat smaller, téléphérique. First leg offers you access to many hikes. Upper part is more oriented towards skiing and true alpinism, but puts you right in some snow in the middle of summer. Nice for kids.

We enjoyed this lift immensely! The views at the top are amazing & the options for where to go once you get to the top are endless. My husband and I were not really equipped for serious walking but we thought we woud set out for Lac Blanc anyway (2hr 45mins according to the signpost). we walked for well over... More

We hiked to the cable car from Chamonix, approx. 1/2 hour. There is a tree covered pathway from the center of town, along a wonderful stream that makes for a very pleasant hike. The cable car ride was fine but the views at the top were outstanding. We used the snack bar at the top and hike on up the... More
