The dazzling snow cap of Mont Blanc, Western Europe’s highest mountain, is a magnificent backdrop to the colourful resort of Chamonix and its smaller, but very attractive neighbour, Les Houches. From relaxing strolls to challenging hikes, this ideal walking country offers something for everyone.

The huge choice of outdoor activities (see our excursions tab) includes rafting, parapenting, mountain biking, climbing, horse riding and summer toboganning. In Chamonix, there is also a superb adventure park, a sports centre and a wonderful 18 hole golf course in Le Praz and mini-golf.

Offering a wide range of shops, cafés, bars and restaurants, Chamonix also has a cinema, casino and nightclubs. Take a trip up the spectacular Aiguille du Midi, one of Europe’s highest cable-cars, or a ride on the famous rack railway to 6,200ft to admire the stunning Mer de Glace glacier. For those looking to beat the crowds, spend an unforgettable night in the Refuge du Montenvers, sitting on the top of the Mer de Glace.
