Full description
A 75 minutes drive by motor-coach through the picturesque Arve Valley takes you from Geneva to Chamonix, one of the most famous mountain villages at the foot of the remarkable and majestic Mont-Blanc, the highest peak of Europe (4807 m./15.771 ft). The Chamonix Mont Blanc valley and neighbouring mountains are a wonderful natural resource. Discover the protected plant and animal life (Aiguilles Rouges Nature Reserve), and the amazing glaciers (Mer de Glace, Glacier des Bossons, glacier d'Argentière). From higher up, experience some of the world´s most stunning alpine views for real (Aiguille du Midi, Tramway du Mont Blanc or Grands Montets). In 1924 Chamonix hosted the first Winter Olympic Games. Skiing was introduced in Chamonix at the end of the 19th century by Dr Payot. Nowadays, Chamonix is the most famous moutain village and Mont Blanc the highest mount of Europe. In the morning, ride the Aiguille du Midi cable car, the highest in Europe, climb more than 2700m and enjoy the unique journey between the ground and the sky with year-round snow! On a clear day, you may even see Mattherhorn, the famous Swiss peak and icon of Switzerland – it’s even found on packages of delicious Toblerone chocolate.

Great but could be greater

The driver, guide ant time management was great. We just waisted our time in the Olympic museum when we could've visit the old city of Lausanne. We also didn't need to go back to the shopping mall when we could've stop at the Vineyards and tasted some white wine or had lunch from that St tuning view. In general this trip is a great invisment for short time visitors to Switzerland. Thanks for the very helpfully guide and driver.
