Chamonix and the Aiguille du Midi

There are lots of great reasons to visit the Chamonix valley all year round, so much so that many people will visit just for the day.

The number one attraction in the Chamonix valley must be the “Aiguille du Midi” and by far the best way to present this amazing location is to let people watch this short film, words can’t describe it.

The PIPE

The PIPE

the-pipeIts summer time in the Alps and as usual Chamonix is starting to get its summer visitors.

This year there are some new attractions for visitors to see in the Chamonix Valley that make a trip here well worth while, even if just for the day.

The recently inaugurated “Le Tube” is a metal construction tube that goes around the Aiguille du midi needle of rock. Not only is it an attraction in itself but it will allow for an easier and more logical walk around the top building.

VTC “Taxi” in Chamonix

Chamonix doesn’t have any “UBER” and there aren’t too many Taxi’s either! especially at night when you need one.

Its for this reason that we have been operating an In-Valley “Taxi” service in the Chamonix valley for the last 2 years.

We have vehicles on the road 24 hours a day 7 days a week all year round.

We are already taking bookings for New Year and we strongly recommend that if you are heading out in Chamonix over New Year you at least take our number with you, its better to book in advance but if you are unsure of when you want to return home you can always call us.

Call us on +33 6 79 01 46 02

Snow in Chamonix, Winter is here!

The weather in Chamonix has just made a massive “U” turn and gone from bright warm sunny weather to bitterly cold and snowy.  During Saturday (21st November) is snowed all day and even into the night, since then it has remained very cold (-10 Sunday 22nd November).

Whilst on a recent private transfer trip from Geneva city centre to Chamonix with a group from the southern hemisphere (who hadn’t seen snow before) we took this picture. Needless to say they were pleased.

After this, our group headed off to Annecy before returning to Geneva.

With all this snow and more forecast this week it looks like its here to stay, even the “Compagnie Du Mont Blanc” have announced they will be opening earlier than they usually do.
