ENJOY THE MOUNTAINS ! With its southern exposure, overlooking the Mont-Blanc Range, the Brévent is the ideal departure point for classic hikings and easy rambles to various mountain lakes (Lac du Brévent, Lac Cornu…)

A must when staying in Chamonix, the views from the top are incredible. We decided to walk down which was hard in places but well worth the effort.

Loved going up on the mountain. Gorgeous views. Wear layers. We got up there wearing four layers and were down to a t-shirt by the end of the afternoon. Hiking trails if you plan your day right.

We took the cable car from Chamonix to Planflaz, and then again to Brevant. Gorgeous views! From here you could hike back to Planplaz, but we took the cable car back, and then hiked to Flagere. From there we took a cable car back down...More

We took the cable car early in the morning which was a bit of a problem since you're going to have the sun in your eyes. I would recommend to go in the afternoon if possible. In any case the view is incredible. Definitely worth...More

Excellent option to take the teleferic to Brevent instead of Aiguille du Midi, both in Chamonix. Less waiting time and great view to Mont Blanc and surrounding.

Came for a vacation in Chamonix. We wanted to go to see the Aiguille du Midi. The cable car was closed to Renovations. So we took the Brevent cable car. The price is a Little bit high buy the view worth it.

From memory it was 80 to 90 euros for a family of four. I’m sure their website will give exact prices.
