Owner description: From Chamonix (1035m), fly over the forest to reach le Plan de l’Aiguille in 10 minutes (2317m). On your right, the Glacier des Bossons, in front of you the Mont-Blanc (4810m), on your left the Aiguille Verte, the Drus and the Aiguilles de Chamonix. Then take a second cable car which, in just 10 minutes takes you up to 3777m, over the seracs, the glacier des Pelerins and the hanging glaciers on the north face of the Aiguille du Midi. . From the top, a sightseeing panorama unique in the world. Experience a very high altitude.

Went up on day 3 of the break, and wasn't disappointed. The views are incredible and if you miss out you will be left kicking yourself. Its a must see.

“Breathtaking and a MUST See”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Ascent/Decent included with purchase of a ski pass but only for those skiers with guide to brave the 5 hours trip off piste to ski down. For those just looking to enjoy the views, it is an amazing trip. Take pictures, enjoy the views but dress warm!

“Incredible experience”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

We were staying in the area in summer, and decided to give this a go. The price of almost EUR100 for the two of us almost put us off, but that would have been a big mistake. The ride was enjoyable and a bit hair raising near the top. We broke through the cloud and stepped out at the top and the views were amazing. I've been on other cable car rides but this was something else. On the way back we stopped at the mid point which was just above the snow line, and decided to walk down the trail from there... it is a long way! Several hours and tough on knees, but a pretty and secluded trail if you have time.

“Goodness what a day out this was.”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

Pick a clear sunny day and travel up to 12000 feet, for genuinely breath taking views, the chance to take the cable car pods across the glacier and look into the crevasses over to Italy. So much to do, precook your ticket in advance as it can be very busy. Do take a packet of crisps though to see what the altitude does!!

“Interesting even in bad weather!”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

Lots of history and interesting exhibits. We couldn't see a thing because the weather was so fierce but are still glad we did it! If you have a combined Chamonix Ski Pass, it's included - make sure you use it because otherwise it's an expensive trip.
