Summer in the Alps

Summer in Chamonix

Surrounded by beautiful mountains, peaceful woods, and crystal blue lakes, Chamonix is a fantastic year round outdoor playground. Summer vacations here are all about being active and there are a wealth of activities on offer for all the family.

A haven for hiking there are 350km of hiking trails available with various levels of difficulty, and plenty of other activities on offer whether you want to be on the ground, mid-air or in the air. With something for everyone, from biking to climbing to paragliding, this is somewhere you are not going to be bored. Just make sure you take some time to relax and take in the spectacular views on offer too or visit one of the spas to relax and rejuvenate.

The town of 'Cham' as it’s affectionately known is both charming and cosmopolitan. The pedestrianised center is characterized by its Victorian architecture - a reminder of when the British began to visit, today it is full of shops, galleries, restaurants and cafés, making it good to visit both day and night.

Chamonix has plenty of museums for those wanting to delve a little deeper into the fascinating history of the valley.

There is also a vast array of gastronomic delights from typical mountain restaurants serving Savoyard specialities to international cuisine to stylish Michelin starred restaurants.
