We had a great time with Franck. He took us canyoning on the French and Swiss alps and we had the best time ever. We had a private tour that lasted half a day and couldn't recommend it highly enough. A must do while you are in the area!

I had my girlfriend and my daughter out with our excellent guide and I can say for sure that even in less-than-ideal weather, we had an amazing time. We were under-geared and the guide took us to a local outfitter and got us taken care of to stay dry, which we did. I can solidly recommend Chamonix Sport Aventure to... More

My boyfriend and I went for paragliding with Franck and his colleague, at the Brévent (2000m). It was my first paragliding experience and although we had already booked everything, I wasn't sure I would have the courage to do it. Franck was very professional and he really helped me feel safe and comfortable, both before and during the flight. The... More

Chamonix is a great place just to visit for natural beauty and good times, but your visit is made a lot more interesting and fun when taking advantage of the possibilities for fun filled activities. To get the most out of it you should engage local experts for arrangements and guidance. When going to Chamonix in July 2015 me and... More

We were in Chamonix for a family ski holiday over Easter with our two sons and daughter, Rob, Alasdair and Juliette (now all young adults who take pleasure in out-skiing me). I had wanted to ski the Valley Blanche ever since visiting Chamonix over 20 years ago and now that our family were older decided this was an adventure not... More

Had a great time skiing in Chamonix with Franck, Walter and Fred. Each day, the team picked us up at our apartment, helped us carry our equipment to the car, drove us to the ski area and guided us skiing around Chamonix. Franck and Fred guided us to amazing sites, including the best restaurants on the mountain. My young son... More

After a disappointing start to the day where the Vallee Blanche was too windy to ski, Franck pulled together a great day off-piste, with good Spring snow. He was full of fascinating facts about the region, glaciers and touring paths - pointing out many good adventures - enticing us back for another day!

We had a great day, off-pist skiing with Yannick Vallencant from Chamonix Sport Adventure. He found nice snow, despite there was lack of snow in the Chamonix area (december 2015). The pace was hight without being too much. And the short instructions we had from Yannick were very useful. All in our group summerized our experience as a wonderful day.

Spent one day heli'ing and 2 days off-piste with Franck. There is no question that Franck knows the valley area and where to find the fresh snow. We learned quickly that conditions can vary widely mountain to mountain and Franck was instrumental in guiding us to the best resorts and runs. He has been skiing in the Valley for over... More
