Chamonix can rightly be called the adventure capital of Europe. It's the main centre of the Houte-Savoie region of South east France. The first ever winter olympics was held here in 1924 so it's no surprise that it's a playground for winter mountain adventures as well as summer activities. From anywhere in Chamonix the huge glaciers, peaks and granite spires are visible and are at an almost stones throw distance. Looking to the south up to the Mont Blanc Massif, you'll see the Aiguille du midi peak, Mont Blanc peak itself and the imposing Glacier du Bossons. Many mountaineers claim that modern mountaineering was born here in Chamonix due its immediate access to the mountains – a claim that’s hard to deny form standing anywhere in town!
But it's not just the extreme activities or winter sports that make Chamonix such an incredible place. Set in a long, steep and green valley, surrounded by meadows, rivers and forests, Chamonix is a playground for hiking, biking, horse riding, golf, rafting and many other activities. It's a place you have to see to believe!
