Chamonix Mont Blanc, at the top of Europe



Chamonix is probably best known as the skiing and alpine capital of the world. As a destination it has a reputation for the extreme and this, whilst undoubtedly true, can mask a wide array of sporting and leisure activities (particularly in summer), a great nightlife, and superb scenery that can be enjoyed at whichever pace suits you.

Chamonix is the perfect place to come for a weekend break, a week's holiday, a season, or a lifetime, as you will never run out of things to do or tire of the views.
Whilst the principal town is of the same name, 'Chamonix' is often used in reference to the whole valley, stretching over 28km from Le Fayet to Switzerland. It is, however, made up of several distinct and charming villages including Servoz, Les Houches, Les Bossons, Les Praz, Les Tines, Argentiere, Montroc, and at the top of the valley: Le Tour.



Mont Blanc, in the heart of the Mont Blanc Massif, is the tallest peak in the Alps and the highest summit in Western Europe, hence its epithet the 'Roof of Europe'. The mountain sits astride the Franco-Italian border, south of Chamonix and northwest of Courmayeur.
The 8th August 1786 was the date of the first ascent by Michel Gabriel Paccard and Jacques Balmat. It is generally agreed that this ascent marks the birth of mountaineering.
Mountaineers from all over the world dream of climbing Mont Blanc. This dream is very achievable as long as you don?t underestimate the apparently easy-looking slopes of this famous mountain. Climbing Mont Blanc is mountaineering, a high altitude ascent that requires physical fitness, technical skill, and careful preparation.
The best way to ensure you have only wonderful memories of your ascent is to climb with a mountain guide.
