Chamonix

— 6 nights

Alpine Capital of the World

"Situated near the massive peaks of the Aiguilles Rouges and, most notably, the Aiguille du Midi, Chamonix is one of the oldest ski resorts in France and known as the Alpine Capital of the World.
Step out of the city life by going to Aiguille du Midi and Parasailing & Paragliding. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chamonix: Grotte d'Orjobet (in Collonges-sous-Saleve), Cascade de Chedde (in Passy) and Annecy (Lake Annecy, Maison de la Galerie, &more). The adventure continues: explore the activities along Lac Blanc, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mont Saleve, take in the dramatic natural features at Les Gorges du Fier, and get great views at Brevent Cable Car.

Well-known for its winter sports and holiday destinations, including some of the country's best ski resorts, Haute-Savoie is a department in the Rhône-Alpes region bordering both Switzerland and Italy. You will find Lake Geneva and Switzerland to the north, the Aravis mountain ranges are southeast, and Mont Blanc, with the famous Mont Blanc Tunnel that crosses the border into Italy, to the south. This mountainous department offers great outdoor sightseeing, and has a large range of elevations from its low river valleys to its high peaks. These helped to create the second largest lake in France, Lake Annecy, and some of the best water in the world, such as Evian mineral water.
