Chamonix Pre-Tour Extension
If you are reserving our Flight + Tour Combo, you may wish to arrive one night earlier in Chamonix, allowing you to become thoroughly acclimatized to the time zone and be well rested for the Mont Blanc Circuit. The birthplace of mountaineering and the site of the first winter Olympics (in 1924), Chamonix attracts all levels of mountain enthusiasts year round. You may choose to ascend to the summit of the Aiguille du Midi peak at 12,605 feet on the highest vertical-ascent cable car in the world. An additional thrill at the top is walking on the “Step Into The Void” glass skywalk with a “drop” of 3,000 feet below the glass floor at your feet. The Tramway du Mont Blanc is a more historic ride to a mountaintop. Or you may explore the town’s geologic and human history at the Alpine Museum in the former Chamonix-Palace.
