(businesspress24) - As one of the oldest ski resorts in France, Chamonix is rich in history, culture and beauty. Situated in the Mont Blanc mountain range, the sprawling snowy peaks surrounding the valley are a thing of beauty. It’s the ideal location to feel at peace and at one with nature. Quick and easy ski transfers to Chamonix from Geneva make it an ideal location for British travellers.

Aiguille du Midi

Within the Mont Blanc range is the Aiguille du Midi. Chamonix sits near the mountain, which is the closest you can get to the peak of Mont Blanc without mountaineering.

The peaks of the mountains break through the snow filled clouds and create a stunning landscape. If you travel up to the Aiguille du Midi itself, you can see the whole mountain range from one of the highest physical points. It can only be described as breathtaking!

How to get to the Aiguille du Midi

The cable car leaves from the centre of Chamonix and makes two journeys to nearly 4000 metres up the mountain. Once you arrive at the station at the top, there are several terraces from which you can admire the panoramic views around you. Hopefully your trip is on a clear day, in which case you can see for miles and miles. The snowier the season, the prettier the scenery is.

On especially clear days, you can even see climbers making their way up the mountains!

What’s at the Top?

For adventurers taking the day to enjoy the spectacular scenery, there are snack bars and restaurants as well as a gift shop. What better place to send a postcard from than the peak of a mountain? The food served is local, traditional cuisine. Be sure to buy a nice hot chocolate to keep you warm, as this high up it can be incredibly cold.

There is a lot of information available about the surroundings at Aiguille du Midi, which can be found at the arrival and departure points. There is also a history museum at the Espace Vertical, which is a huge cave-turned-museum. Learn about mountaineering and history of the area in the highest museum in the world!

The Aigulle du Midi is a great day out for anyone. Wining and dining on top of the world is an unforgettable day out whether you go summer or winter.
