Plan de l'Aiguille - Montenvers

This is the itinerary we suggest for a day trip combining the visit of two of the most legendary sites in Chamonix, with a nice family hike through the mountains. Go up to the incomparable Aiguille du Midi, perched at 3842m in altitude, and get ready to be blown away by the unique views of Mont-Blanc and the surrounding peaks and glaciers. As you come back down, stop at the mid-station, Plan de l'Aiguille from which a picturesque path crosses over to Montenvers (about a 2hr walk) where you will enjoy a view over the mythical Mer de Glace, you can visit the ice cave which is carved right inside the glacier, and this Summer you will even be able to fly up in a hot air balloon and enjoy an even more spectacular viewpoint over this famous glacier ! Finally, after an action-packed day, you can go back down to Chamonix with the train...or on foot if you are not too tired ! Finally, taste a pleasant rest in a hotel in Argentière, near Chamonix.
