Come and join me for a thrilling day of mountaineering at Chamonix in the French Alps.
Home to the First Winter Olympics in 1924, Chamonix is an amazing place. It is home to some of the most famous peaks in the French Alps. From Mont Blanc, to Aiguilles Rouges to Aiguille du Midi. It has a population of less than nine-thousand people. Hence creating the feeling of discovering something small and hidden. When you come here, you feel like you’ve found the X on a treasure map. And believe me, Chamonix is definitely a treasure.
Perfect for beginners and experienced mountain climbers alike, this French Commune has everything you could want. You can climb gorgeous ridges like the Ladies Ridge and Cosmique Ridge. There is also the Grand Perron Traverse that you can enjoy. You can climb one of the many Ice or Granite Walls. One of the World’s Highest Cable Cars that links the town to the peak of Aiguille du Midi is even here. And there is so much more.
The scenery you will take in during the day will leave you mesmerised. From the aforementioned peaks, to other peaks such as Aiguille Purtschaler and Aiguille Dorres, to the gorgeous Snow Slopes that look like frozen ocean waves, or desert dunes of pure white. Simply stunning.
The beauty is so overwhelming here that you will lose track of time. The day will be over before you realised it has even begun. But that’s okay because you can always stay longer and keep exploring all that Chamonix has to offer.
So come, let me guide you for a full day inside this mountaineering playground, where the rides were millions of years in the making and the views will take your breath away.
I’ll be awaiting your message.
