Chamonix

+ Google Map
Chamonix, France

Chamonix is often referred to as the ‘Capital Of World Mountaineering’, and rightly so! It is a remarkable base camp for mountain activities whether you are alpine mountaineering in summer, off piste skiing in winter, mountain walking or simply enjoying the superb high mountain scenery.

Chamonix is located in the Haute Savoie department of South East France, near both the Italian and Swiss alpine borders. The Chamonix Valley is a spectacular divide between the high altitude glaciers and summits of the Mont Blanc Massif to the South and the Aiguilles Rouges mountain range to the north.

Getting To Chamonix

Geneva Airport

Chamonix is about 100kms and a 1.5hr drive from Geneva Airport – less if there isn’t much traffic! There are many car hire options. Make sure your hire car has winter tyres if you are coming in winter!

Chamonix is very well served with regular transfer buses from a wide variety of companies offering both group and private taxis. Here are a recommended selection that we have found to be reliable and all offer slightly different formats and prices.

Guests who have booked any course or guiding with us can receive a special discount for a door to door transfer from Geneva airport to Chamonix accommodation with Mountain Drop Offs for just €30 during core hours of the high season.

Milano Airport

Milan Malpensa airport is nearly 300kms from Chamonix and around 4 hours drive. More if there is a lot of traffic waiting to use the Mont Blanc Tunnel. Thus Geneva airport is much closer, easier and cheaper but the access from Milan is via the beautiful Italian alpine Val d’Aosta, so this is a good route if you want to spend some time in the Italian Alps.

Rail

Chamonix is on the main train line between Le Fayet and Martigny across the Swiss border. Rail travel from Geneva airport is possible but slower and more expensive than using a private transfer company, see above, so these are much more popular.

Paris – Chamonix takes around 6-9 hours and it is possible to take an overnight sleeper train to Le Fayet / St. Gervais which then just provides a final short hop to Chamonix. Check with the French rail company SNCF.

Road

Road Access to Chamonix from France and the North is via the ‘Autoroute Blanche’ E25-A40 which links to the main European motorway network. Access from Switzerland is via Martigny, Col de la Forclaz and Col des Montets (occasionally closed in winter). Rapid access from Italy is via the Mont Blanc Tunnel at the head of the Valle d’Aosta (allow c.€55 for a return journey).

Welcome To Chamonix – Capital Of World Mountaineering!

Chamonix Accommodation

Please note that our courses usually meet in Chamonix town centre, often at a Hotel / bar / café near the train station. Thus easily accessed on foot from any of the town centre hotels but also with nearby parking for those arriving by car. Flexibility to arrange your own accommodation during your stay in Chamonix is a feature of our group courses. We prefer to let you choose your own budget & style of hotel, bunkhouse, self catering accommodation or camping. All of these are widely available in Chamonix.

For private guiding courses we offer door to door collection / drop off from anywhere in Chamonix and for group courses there is usually a pre-determined morning meeting point on the outskirts of the centre of town, eg near the train station or main market place.

Weather and conditions sometimes mean that a flexible approach is required regarding which nights are spent in mountain huts, and thus what nights are spent in the valley.  Some guests have found this flexibility is more easily managed when dealing direct with the Hotel / accommodation rather than having booked through booking.com for example.

Chamonix Hotels – In the Town

Refuge Des Aiglons – Smart & modern 4* Hotel with large reception & bar / restaurant / breakfast area, spa and outdoor swimming pool with Mont Blanc views.
