The Chamonix Valley

The Resort

A winter and summer holiday destination popular the world over, Chamonix is the largest of four mountain villages occupying the valley at the foot of the infamous Mont Blanc. Widely known as the extreme Sports Capital of the World, adventurers can find themselves elevated to 3840m within minutes,  enabling them to access the phenomenal high mountain terrain of the Mont Blanc Massif.

But Chamonix should not only be considered as an extreme sport destination.  The expansive range of slopes offer plenty of options for all levels of ability, not to mention a huge range of activities for non-skiers.  The town provides a buzzing, thriving atmosphere full of diverse cultures, wonderful restaurants, and stunning scenery.  This is a wonderful place full of energy, history and beauty, all just an hour away from Geneva airport.
