Full description
Feast your eyes on dramatic landscapes as you travel by coach through the scenic Arve Valley to Chamonix. Chamonix’s position at the foot of Europe’s highest peak, Mont-Blanc, makes it one of the most popular mountain villages in the area. On this full-day trip from Geneva, you’ll have access to Aiguille du Midi, a rocky 3,842-meter peak close to Mont Blanc. Take a ride up on the most famous cable car in the world, (please note this cable car is currently under maintenance, your tour will feature an alternative cable car or activity). This high mountain site, equipped for your comfort and safety, offers a 360-degree panorama taking in the majestic Mont-Blanc as well as the whole of its massif. In addition, you’ll also enjoy panoramic views of the Chamonix Valley and the major peaks of the French, Swiss, and Italian Alps. The Aiguille du Midi comprises the Piton Nord, the Piton Central with the Mont-Blanc gallery, and the Mont-Blanc terrace with its unforgettable view of Mont-Blanc. Take a charming little red train from Chamonix to the Montenvers site and the world famous Mer de Glace glacier. The Montenvers site is surrounded by the magnificent summits of les Drus, les Grandes Jorasses, and les Grands Charmoz. Learn about the largest French glacier and nature in the Alpine environment at exhibits here.

Worth the trip , very recommendable ❤️ our guide is good and the experiences is amazing and we all have the satisfying day. Its a wonderful thing to do to put on your list the ice sculpture was mesmerize but the 600 steps to come there is a big challenge

Spectacular! Helped by the perfect weather. I did suffer a little, with the altitude at the highest point of Aiguille du midi, making it uncomfotable and returned early, but the features and walkways at the top are breath taking. The Mer de glass was awesome seeing the path it had taken and how it had carved through the rocks, the glacier is now a fraction of it's size, so to get close you had to climb down over 500 steps and back. There were several smaller glacters to be seen.

There is nothing for a guided tour… at the starting point we were informed that some cable cars were not working, they refunded 65 chf, put us on a conventional bus and gave us a map explaining what to do, where to go and what time did I have to return… despite that, the city is charming, and it was well worth the trip. I RECOMMEND!!!
