Tramway du Mont-Blanc

in Saint-Gervais-les-Bains

A ride on the Mont-Blanc Tramway is a pretext for adventure... Discover a variety of alpines landscapes along the journey and some of the most views from the top. More than a simple excursion, a true discovery !

In winter, it takes pedestrians and skiers to the Plateau de Bellevue (1800 m) and the ski area of Les Houches for the pleasure of a most picturesque walk and the grandeur of an exceptional panorama.

In summer, it takes you up to the Nid d'Aigle (2372 m). Take the cogwheel train for an effortless assault on the summits. Jeanne, Marie or Anne will take you to the gates of the high mountains, to the delight of your eyes... and your legs! Up there, the Bionnassay glacier is just a 30-minute walk from the refuge. It's an easy walk for the whole family to get up close to the ice, observe the seracs and feel the fresh breath of eternal snow on your face.
From here, experienced and well-equipped mountaineers can access the Tête Rousse and Goûter refuges for the ascent of Mont Blanc.
