What You Can Expect

Half-Day Trip to Chamonix and Mont Blanc from Geneva

Half-Day Trip to Chamonix and Mont Blanc from Geneva

Your half-day trip from Geneva begins with an unforgettable 90-minute drive across the Switzerland-France border and through the picturesque Arve Valley to Chamonix, situated at the foot of majestic Mont Blanc, the highest peak in both the Alps and Western Europe at 15,780 feet (4,800 meters).

You’ll continue to Aiguille du Midi, a rocky peak near Mont Blanc with year-round snow. On a two-stage cable car, you’ll reach the mountain’s summit in just 20 minutes. Then, prepare to be awed by the spectacular panoramic views of the Chamonix Valley and the French, Swiss and Italian Alps! 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.

There are many terraces and balconies at the Aiguille du Midi summit, where you can enjoy the alpine views and watch skiers zooming down toward the glacier. There's also a cafe, where you can have a hot chocolate or enjoy a light snack (own expense) before returning back to Geneva with your driver-chauffeur.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

Awesome trip. The view from the top is insane. The trip is just the right length; we had enough time to not feel rushed but not too much that we got bored. Everyone spoke English too which was useful; even though both of us spoke French sometimes there can be some translational issues so being able to switch back and forth was extremely helpful. At the top, there's both a restaurant and a cafeteria. The cafeteria is cheap but the food is pretty good. If you're in Geneva, you'd be insane not to head out to Chamonix for a day.
