Chamonix, in the shadow of Mont-Blanc!
Getting to Chamonix with OUIBUS is just the first stage of your adventure: 15 780 feet high, the top of Mont-Blanc is calling to you! Capital of alpine sports, Chamonix will delight both hiking experts ready to hit the slopes and amateur climbers, who will be charmed by the town’s easy atmosphere and its many traditional shops and restaurants.
At the heart of the valley, discover the Lac Blanc and its transparent waters in the Aiguilles Rouges nature reserve, where you can admire the 65-feet-high Dard waterfall. Here, everything is about altitude: let the cable car take you from the centre of Chamonix to the incredible Aiguille du Midi, 12 391 feet high… where you can take a lift to go even higher and discover the incredible panorama from specially built terraces.
Nearby, a little train will take you to Montenvers and the Mer de Glace. In a cave carved inside the glacier itself, learn about the lives of the mountain dwellers from the early 19th century onward. To warm up before your journey home with OUIBUS, sit down for a delicious fondue or go see a match and cheer for the Chamois, the players from Chamonix’s hockey club, thirty times champions of France!
