What to expect

This ticket combines three unique experiences in one: Visit lovely Chamonix at the foot of majestic Mont Blanc, take the cable car up to the summit of Aiguille du Midi and enjoy a picturesque mountain train ride to “La mer de Glace”, the largest glacier of France.

The bus roundtrip starts from Geneva in the morning. Enjoy a picturesque 90 minutes' ride and discover one of the most famous mountain villages in the world upon arrival. Wherever you look up in Chamonix, you will see the roof of Europe: 4.810m (15.781 ft) high Mont Blanc. Breathe in fresh mountain air and stroll through the charming streets of the city that hosted the first Winter Olympics in 1924 and has become a capital of alpinism, freeride skiing, ice climbing and ultra-trail running ever since.

The cable car will bring you up to the summit of Aiguille du Midi, the peak just in front of Mont-Blanc. Look forward to spectacular views on the French, Swiss and Italian Alps at 3.842m height and to feeling like touching the sky.

Enjoy a train ride through the mountain landscape in the afternoon and see the largest glacier of France, also known as 'La mer de Glace', the Ice Sea. A panoramic terrace will give you a breathtaking view on the glacier. If the seasons allows it, you can also visit an ice cave.
