Whether you wish to try your hand at one activity like rock climbing, white water rafting, mountain biking, horse riding or paragliding, or if you just want to take a stroll and enjoy the wonderful scenery there really is something for everyone.
The town itself offers an excellent selection of shops, restaurants and boutiques and has excellent nightlife thanks to the numerous pubs and nightclubs. Chamonix also plays host to a number of events during the summer including a marathon around Mont Blanc in June and the world rock climbing championships in July.

The Aiguille du Midi lift – the world’s highest vertical ascent cable car – is well worth a visit. Not only are the views from the summit (3, 842m) spectacular, you’ll also get a great view of the famous Mont Blanc peak.
