“My visits to Chamonix-Mont-Blanc Valley always take my breath away,” enthuses Quentin, a holidaymaker we met out and about in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc. “I came to see the glaciers as I’m fascinated by them. I started with the Mer de Glace. The climb up in the Montenvers train is an amazing journey through time. I loved being able to get up close to the glacier and learn more about its history. Then, I went up to the Aiguille du Midi to see the iconic peaks and glaciers up close. You go up in the cable car at the same time as the mountaineers on their way to their climb - it’s extraordinary. It’s a quick ride up and then there you are, at the heart of the Mont-Blanc Massif, at 3,842 metres altitude! It’s incredible being so close to Mont Blanc.”
The view of Mont Blanc ...
The view of Mont Blanc is also what encouraged Giselle and Bernard to come and visit Chamonix-Mont-Blanc Valley. We met them on their way back down from La Flégère: “We love hiking and were keen to discover Lac Blanc after seeing it on the tourist office’s social media pages. It’s truly wonderful! And the view of Mont Blanc is simply outstanding!”
Take time to visit the village resorts of Servoz, Les Houches, Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, Argentière and Vallorcine, which reserve a wonderfully warm, typically Alpine welcome.
