Second visit to Aiguille du midi, much better time to visit in low season avoiding queuing. This time we paid the extra 29 euros to go over on the helbronner lift, worth every penny views over glazier amazing and information on Italian side excellent. Expensive...More

Once you get to the top you can walk into a glass enclosure and look straight down for thousands of feet and be totally safe.

After 10 days of hiking we still couldn't get enough of the mountain views. Slower time of year so no wait times. The sky cleared just in time for us to see Mont Blanc and see some hikers in the snow.

I was there in a cloudy day, with almost zero visibility, still I give it a 5 star rating. Really, how often can you go up to 3,842 meters and breath in the thin air of the Mont Blanc?! Go there from 15 degrees in...More

Be prepared for long queues at the bottom. Buy your ticket and get a timed slot (plastic numbered tag) and then go to the entrance when the number of your tag is displayed. The cable car is in two parts, so stop at the mid-point...More

We were told that only passes bought in the Chamonix Valley were valid on the Aguille du Midi cable cars. This covers Sevos to Vallocine from memory.
