In Chamonix, lovers of the mountain and preserved nature will surely find their happiness : the panoramas are exceptional, the possibilities for walks infinite be it on skis, in snowshoes or by foot…

The Chamonix Mont Blanc Valley is a mythical place where ski is king. It offers lovers of preserved natural beauty and exceptional panoramas extraordinary views on the Mont Blanc, the third most visited natural site in the world, as well as the glaciers that are omnipresent in the Chamonix Valley.
