Owner description: From Chamonix (1035m), fly over the forest to reach le Plan de l’Aiguille in 10 minutes (2317m). On your right, the Glacier des Bossons, in front of you the Mont-Blanc (4810m), on your left the Aiguille Verte, the Drus and the Aiguilles de Chamonix. Then take a second cable car which, in just 10 minutes takes you up to 3777m, over the seracs, the glacier des Pelerins and the hanging glaciers on the north face of the Aiguille du Midi. . From the top, a sightseeing panorama unique in the world. Experience a very high altitude.

“On the top of Europe”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Very good place to visit if you like mountains and sensational views. The cable car is a feat of engineering. Really impressive. On the other hand the most expensive cable car I have ever tried.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

The kids love cable car ride with great view of Mont Blanc. They felt a bit sick from being light headed from the high altitude but overall we enjoyed it a lot. There's cafe and souvenir shop on the top. Feel like you are in top of the world. Definitely would do it again!!

“The 'wow' experience”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

I loved every minute of this experience, from the trip up on the cable car, the views at the top, the buildings on top of unbelievably high pinnacles, and the audio-visual displays.

“Spectacular views”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

The double cable car journey is a definite 'not to be missed'. The views are simply spectacular. Arrive early to avoid the cues! Wear proper warm clothes because it is bitterly cold in mid winter.
