Chamonix – only 1 hour from Verbier

Chamonix is an authentic French mountain town, set at the foot of Europe’s highest mountain Mont Blanc and about 1 hour and 15 minutes drive from Verbier. It is a fascinating traditional resort with year round activities for both adults and children. The Aguille du Midi with probably the world’s most spectacular viewing platform and a close-up view of the Mont Blanc is a must see for everyone on earth!


Chamonix – Mont Blanc

The picturesque town of Chamonix breathes Alpine activity all year round. Lots of the leading wintersport brands have a flagship store in town, there is a wide range of bars and restaurants on offer and there is even a casino. In total there are about 50 sports activities to do in and around Chamonix. There is a beautiful 18-hole golf course, an amazing ski resort in the winter, lots of hiking trails and much more.


Aguille du midi

Since 1955 it has been possible to take a cable car to 3.842 meters, the summit of the Aguille du Midi. From there you have one of the world’s most impressive views over the Mont Blanc, the surrounding glaciers and some extreme steep verticals. In December 2013 the ‘Step into the Void’ was opened, a glass skywalk with a view of 1.035 meters down. Last, but not least, the Aguille du Midi is also the start of the famous ski tour over the Vallée Blanche.
