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.

“Spectacular”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

This is a must if you have a few hours spare in Chamonix. The views are amazing and the trip to Italy in the gonadal cable car is simply breathtaking. Also the step into the void option is fun too

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

This is a must do if you are close to Chamonix! The cabin is taking you up to a fabulous view that you cannot see unless you are a class climber. If you are going up. Make sure that you take some thick sweater. Is not value if you go up to hurry then back just because you are cold.

“Amazing views, 3800+ Meter Altitude”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

The easy way to get up to 3800+Meter altitude level above sea level, with unrivalled views of Mont Blanc, and the Chamonix Valley.
If you do a lift ride in this area this is one to do.

“Busy but nice”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Very busy in August but defo worth a visit. The step into the void attraction - a glass box hanging above 1000m drop was the best attraction but very busy ;)

“Stunning Views”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Plan your visit and you will enjoy one of the best views in Europe. We took the cable car at 7.30am and we were not disappointed, no queues and straight up to the top. The clouds were non existent when we arrived at the top, it was a little cold but if you dress correctly it does not matter. The wind is quite sharp and strong so do be careful.
