Know More about this tour

In 1924 Chamonix hosted the first Winter Olympic Games. Skiing was introduced in Chamonix at the end of the 19th century by Dr Payot. Nowadays, Chamonix is the most famous mountain village and Mont Blanc the highest mount of Europe.

In the morning, ride the Aiguille du Midi cable car, the highest in Europe, climb more than 2700m and enjoy the unique journey between the ground and the sky with year-round snow! On a clear day, you may even see the Mattherhorn, the famous Swiss peak and icon of Switzerland – it’s even found on packages of delicious Toblerone chocolate. For lunch, enjoy the fine french cuisine. Our restaurant is situated in the center of the village, on the way you will discover the mountain architecture of the Alps.

In the afternoon, board the little red cogwheel train to Glacier Mer de Glace. It takes about twenty minutes to climb the 1,000 meters up to the Montenvers-Mer de Glace attraction. The track climbs the mountainside running through the forest, tunnels cut through the rock and over viaducts. You enter the realm of the high mountains, and round the last bend you'll feel the magic: you've arrived at your destination at the foot of the famous Mer de Glace glacier, at an altitude of 1,913m.

  • The ride wasn't too long, about 1 1/2 hours. The guide was a bit grouchy but we ignored him. The town was so amazing and quaint. The lift to the top f Mont Blanc was scary. If you are afraid of heights you may want to think twice and the air was very thin! It was cold, icy and raining at the top so we didn't get to see much. The lunch was at the most adorable restaurant and we are still talking about it! Really loved it. The train ride was fun but again, if you are afraid of heights once you get up the hill on the train you may want to stay in the restaurant/store if you don't want to ride another lift down to the ice caves. Over 400 steps to climb up and down in the ice caves. All in all this was a pretty scary but fun adventure.

  • The views were spectacular and the lunch was fine
    The guide was a waste of time, she was only a ticket collector!

  • Amazing experience, views, glaciars, mountains, food...

  • Tour is very well organized. Guide Maria was very nice and professional. The weather was amazing blue sky with almost no winds. Beautiful landscape.

  • This was the highlight of our trip to Europe.
    The tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Tickets are provided to you and then you're left to explore at your own leisure, which is very nice.

    We had the lunch included, which was at a nice restaurant in town and definitely exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend it!!!
