Chamonix Valley

Back To Regions

The Chamonix Valley is a magnificent glacial valley stretching from the Swiss border at Vallorcine incorporating Argentiere, Les  Praz, Chamonix, Les Houches and ending at Servoz. The valley is most famous as being home to the highest mountain in the Alps, Mont Blanc. For centuries this magnificent peak has drawn mountain enthusiasts from mountaineers, hikers and mountain bikers to paragliders, skiers and snowboarders.

 

Vallorcine is an untouched area of natural beauty rich in animal and plant life where you can catch a glimpse of deer, red squirrels and chamois in their natural alpine habitat. It’s the perfect place for relaxation and tranquility.

Argentiere is gateway to the Grant Montets ski area, the highest altitude in the Chamonix Valley. It’s a small village approximately 10 minutes drive from Chamonix, with traditionally styled alpine chalets dotted on its slopes and a gentle river flowing through it. 

Les Praz de Chamonix is a small hamlet 5 minutes drive from the centre of Chamonix, or a half an hour stroll along woodland paths. From here you can access the La Flégère ski area via the cable car which takes you over Chamonix golf course.

Chamonix is a lovely mountain town which thrives on its close proximity to Mont Blanc. It’s a popular base camp for mountaineers, hikers and snow sports enthusiasts alike due to it’s abundance of amenities, lively atmosphere and short transfer times from Geneva airport. 

Les Houches is a scattering of hamlets comprising beautiful alpine chalets and apartments amongst the thick forests and alpine meadows with amazing views of the Mont Blanc Massif and Aiguilles. Renowned as a family friendly resort it’s a fantastic place to introduce children to mountain sports with ski, mountain biking and climbing schools nearby. 

Servoz is a quaint hamlet standing guard at the foot of the Fiz mountains guarding the entrance to the Chamonix Valley just North of Les Houches. It’s a traditional village maintaining its pastoral and architectural heritage making it a beautiful first stop on a tour of the valley
