The Rhone/French Alps region
Chamonix sits at the foot of the highest mountain in Europe, in a valley surrounded by the most spectacular and dramatic scenery. Mont Blanc, at a height of 4810 meters, is the third most visited natural site in the world. As one of the most important mountaineering centre, it attracts people all year long with a summer season as busy as the winter.
In the winter, the valley's main ski areas of Grands Montets, Domaine de Balme, Brevent/Flegere and les Houches provide great challenges to experienced skiers whilst the lower areas of la Vormaine, les Planards, les Chosalets and le Savoy are ideal for beginners. The Aiguille du Midi cable offers superb off-piste skiing such as the famous Vallee Blanche and there is unlimited opportunities for some of the best ski touring in the world.
In the summer, the Chamonix area has more than 300 km of hiking trails offering walks adapted to all.
