As Mark Twain famously noted:

Join us in Chamonix this summer and extend your stay in Europe’s adventure capital completely free of charge.

This has been a year unlike any other for travel and tourism. We saw the ski lifts in France finish early for the season, but the last few months have seen a recovery to the ‘new normal’.

Chamonix has been leading the way. It was the first resort in France to re-open its lifts and has just announced another great innovation for tourists for this summer.

More good ‘déconfinement’ news from Chamonix as the mountain refuges have started to reopen, with new health and hygiene protocols in place.

While Chamonix is best known as a ski and summer adventure destination, with a list of activities to get your adrenaline pumping, the rich variety of styles of architecture in Chamonix might surprise the casual visitor.

This weekend the Aiguille du Midi cable car and Montenvers train in Chamonix both opened. They became the first lifts to start again since all ski resorts in France closed down due to Covid-19 in March 2020.

The Compagnie du Mont-Blanc has confirmed that both the Aiguille du Midi and Montenvers lifts will open again on 16 May.

As government updates continue regarding the approach to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we would like to confirm our position.

[Update 05 May] The Aiguille du Midi and Montenvers lifts will open on 16 May


It’s surprising how often we are asked if Chamonix has a train station. The good news is that it does and it’s well serviced from France and Switzerland, as well as along the Chamonix valley.

Chamonix is one the best possible locations for team building. The adventure capital of Europe, Chamonix is easy to get to and there are team building options for every organisation.
