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.

We bought a 3 day non consecutive pass and when the weather looked good jumped at the chance to go! Arrived about 8am and still queued for 45mins to board. Well worth buying your ticket in advance as queues for tickets were even longer. Once on cable car it was a quick ride to first stop, short wait then second similar cable car to top. Felt a bit queezy at top but had taken sweets and water which helped! Waited about 30min to get lift to very top which was worth it as views are amazing. You can also step into the glass cube void but was another wait and we needed a hot drink by then as very cold. We were about 90mins at the top and no wait to return. Highly recommend it...well worth the money!

We used the Mont Blanc multi pass and found it worthwhile.

this is the biggest single span cable car in Europe, the views from the top are absolutely breathtaking, weather winter or summer its worth the trip.

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.

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!!
