Chamonix, France is such a special place!

Chamonix, France is such a special place!

Recently Alpine Adventure travel specialist AJ Templeton sent us her reminder about why Chamonix, France is such a special place. “The 4 star Grand Hotel des Alpes is located right in the middle of Chamonix, so right out of the door you are in the heart of the pedestrian district of this classic ski town! There is no restaurant in this hotel, but they don’t really need one because there is such easy access to shops and fun dining places. There are 30 rooms and 4 suites and your view is either the Brevent ski are or the Mont Blanc ski area, and the decor is a nice mix of modern/mountain/classic. The hotel has a ski room, sauna/steam room, hot tub and indoor pool. Breakfast is delicious, with omlettes available on request. Every evening there is a superb apres ski with sweet and savory. The service is outstanding! And new this year: a shuttle service to take guests to the ski areas if they don’t want to make the 5-10 minute walk. You will love your stay in this historic building, the Grand Hotel des Alpes, Chamonix.

Hut-to-Hut Ski Safari – Haute Route Chamonix – Zermatt

Tour description:
AlpineAdventures-logo

First completed in 1903 by the elder guides of La Compagnie des Guides, this route connects two historical alpine capitals. The notoriety of this route, taking part on glaciers for the most part, is based on the exceptional beauty of the landscapes.

Starting in Chamonix, at the foot of Mont Blanc and the great North faces of the Argentière cirque, your skis will lead you across the Wallis region of Switzerland, finishing with a unique ski descent just below the Matterhorn.

A dream for all touring skiers, this tour is a serious adventure, requiring a good experience of multi-day ski touring trips, and good off-piste skiing skills.

Why 6 days?
