Austrian man tried to take 5yr old son up Mt Blanc

Grand Couloir

Grand Couloir

An Austrian climber who was attempting to take his 5yr old son up Mt Blanc has been stopped at the refuge “Tete Rousse” by members of the PGHM.

The refuge is located at 3,200 meters altitude which is already quite high for a 5 year old child.  The pair hadn’t yet crossed the Grand Couloir but would have needed to in order to get to the summit.  The couloir is notorious for stone fall during the summer months and many people have been killed here.

The major of nearby town “St Garvais” has complained that Mt Blanc is becoming a bit of an amusement park due to this and other recent events.

Geneva to Chamonix day tours.

During a summer time visit to Geneva many people wish to experience a “bit of the Alps” by seeing some spectacular mountain scenery and maybe even stepping out onto some snow, as well as eating some local produce and buying a few presents.

By far the quickest, highest and most spectacular mountain town to visit from Geneva is Chamonix.  Located only 1hr from Geneva city centre and with a great highway leading straight into the heart of town there is lots to do for everyone.

There are cable cars open all year round to allow access to viewing platforms, restaurants and high level walks.  There are tandem paragliding flights, mountain bike tracks, running tracks, sports centres, Spas, Bars, Cafes in fact there is so much going on that a day may not be enough.

For more information about getting to Chamonix from Geneva in one of our luxury Mercedes People carriers please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Aiguille du Midi day trip from Geneva.

One of the most popular Geneva day trips at this time of year is to Chamonix and the Aiguille du Midi.  At around an hour from Geneva its the perfect place to find a truly Alpine experience during a visit to Geneva.

The Aiguille du Midi is found in the Mont Blanc Massif and is only a cable car ride away from Chamonix town centre.  Built in 1955, it was the worlds highest cable car for over 2 decades and still holds the world record for the highest vertical ascent cable car ride going from 1,035m to 3,842m.

Included in the recent renovations is the now famous “Step into the Void” glass box that is suspended out over a 1,000m void.

At Deluxe we can provide luxury transportation to Chamonix from Geneva (and elsewhere) and back again, please contact us for more information.

New Mercedes Viano coming soon.

We have been waiting for quite some time to get a look at the new Viano (sorry, V-Class) so we were very excited to see this new video release from Mercedes showing what the new people carrier will look like.

Out in spring 2014, waiting lists exist already in france but 4×4 options and certain types of finish may not be available straight away.
