Full description
Travel through the picturesque Arve Valley from Geneva to Chamonix, explore the famous village of Chamonix, and marvel at the alpine views. The resort experienced its first growth spurt in the Victorian era, hosted the first Winter Olympics in 1924 and has emerged as the capital of all-mountain skiing. The steep-sided valley, with its glaciers and rocky spires, is where snow-sports and mountaineering meet. The busy town is a popular destination for day trippers. Find shopping designer brands and fashionable mountain brands in the many boutiques. Sample local products such as cheese, meats and fresh honey.

Even though the attractions were closed in Chamonix for scheduled maintenance this was still a great day trip. Weather was perfect, I wanted a better view of Mt Blanc so I went the opposite way to the tourists and hiked up Brevent (was completely alone for about three straight hours, it was a great and the views were incredible). It’s probably the best kept secret in town I’d highly recommend

We had a fabulous time! There was heaps of snow in Chamonix. Going to the summit of Mont Blanc is a must - we went up & had a coffee & snack in the Cafeteria at the top. Luckily we had a day with very little cloud & the views were stunning! Wrap up warm though.

The activity was very nice, the guide explained the route well, the driver very professional. the service good. the only thing I didn't like was the train ride because the area was closed and there was nothing to see or do there, it seemed like a waste of time. Too expensive for the value.
