If you have bought a combined attraction ticket, make a point to reach the Vallee Blanche before 3:30 PM. The ride to the top is equally breathtaking

We skiied down the glacier off-piste with Kailash Adventure (best guides in the area) and it was the best skiing of my life! Could've used more snow but the scenery more than made up for it. If your skiing aptitude is sufficient and you can hire mountain guides, this is a must-do!

Did this run - with a ski guide - a while back. Just getting to the top of the Aguile du Midi is scary enough, but then being roped together to move along the narrow ice path, carrying your skis is not for the faint hearted. But if you manage this, then the open vista of the Vallee Blanche is... More

Chamonix has a real aura about it. The landscape is amazing and the views are spectacular. This walk is definitely worth doing if you have time. A train will take you to the glacier and from there it is all on foot to the man made ice caves to see the carvings. If you are a bit unsteady walking, then... More

This was my best skiing experience ever. We had a guide for a day, went up to Aiguille de Midi and it was 2 meter new fresh snow in the beginning of April. It took us about 5 hours to go down the whole way to Chamonix. But it was a magnificent day

Catch the train from Chamonix, if you buy a day pass for Aiguille du Midi it's included, 20 minutes later you are at the station. A gondala ride takes you downb to where the glacier was in 1985, but not anymore, a further 400+ steps takes you down to it's current location. Once there you can walk into the ice... More

Beautiful valley with amazing views, shame that the glacier it melting... It was worth hiking from the middle part of Aiguille du Midi plus the views on the way were stunning as well.

Beautiful place, but very crowded (of course). Signs on the mountain wall make us very clear how fast the glaciers are melting. Beware!!

So much to see here. The little gondola cable car takes you to the ice cave, but as the glacier is melting s quickly there is a walk from this to the cave via many steps - but it is worth it.
