On board of the little red train, cross the streets of these villages filled with history. After leaving the center of Chamonix, the tourist train takes you towards a more greener and rural sector of these two villages that have kept their authenticity.
The village des Bois is certainly the most authentic villages of the Chamonix valley thanks to its remarkably typical architecture. It is an ideal place for non-aficionados of skiing and hiking. However, in winter, the skiing fans will be delighted.
The village des Praz is located between Chamonix and Argentière. It is the most beautiful village in the valley located along the Arve. This village gives direct access to La Flegère and Brevent resorts. In winter, these two areas mainly equipped with red and blue slopes are appreciated by intermediate skiers.
Then the tourist train will follow the “chemin des Cristalliers” by which you will discover the sulphurous spring waters, Frasse and its oratories, the old granite quarry and the Lake Praz at 1100 meters in the deep valley of Chamonix.
This night guided tour allows you to discover during one hour history, heritage and atmosphere of these two alpine villages.
