Located at the base of Mont Blanc mountain range, dominated by giants rising to 4000 meters on one side and 3000 meters on the other, bordering Switzerland and Italy, Chamonix enjoys an exceptional location that has earned it the nickname “world capital of skiing and mountaineering.”

 

Base Camp for the ascent of Mont Blanc (4810 meters), the third most visited natural site in the world, Chamonix is a very cosmopolitan town that has kept its authenticity through a mountain culture whose roots date back more than two centuries.

 

Gathering place of travelers and adventurers from all backgrounds, Chamonix and its neighboring villages are a paradise for lovers of the great outdoors. Both in summer and winter, exploring the high mountain glaciers or walking the mountain trails, the valley is a gateway to a unique and majestic site for lovers of country walks or for thrill seekers.
