Tour Overview

In one day, combine three distinct experiences: Visit charming Chamonix at the foot of spectacular Mont Blanc, ride the Aiguille du Midi cable car to the peak, and take a scenic mountain train journey to "La mer de Glace," France's largest glacier.

The bus journey begins in the morning in Geneva. Enjoy a scenic 90-minute trip and experience one of the world's most famous mountain communities when you arrive. In Chamonix, everywhere you look up, you'll see Mont Blanc, Europe's roof at 4.810m (15.781 feet). Take a stroll around the picturesque streets of the city that hosted the first Winter Olympics in 1924 and has since become a center for alpinism, freeride skiing, ice climbing, and ultra-trail running.

Take the cable car to the top of the Aiguille du Midi, the peak that stands directly in front of Mont-Blanc. At 3.842 meters above sea level, you may expect amazing views of the French, Swiss, and Italian Alps, as well as the sensation of touching the sky.

In the afternoon, take a train trip into the mountains to witness France's biggest glacier, also known as 'La Mer de Glace,' or the Ice Sea. A panoramic patio offers a spectacular view of the glacier.
