"Summertime in Chamonix" Top 5 Page for this destination Chamonix-Mont-Blanc by Manara

Chamonix-Mont-Blanc Travel Guide: 322 reviews and 689 photos

Chamonix is famous as a skiing resort, but I do not ski and go instead to mountain resorts in summer, to escape the heat, to walk and to enjoy the beauty of the landscapes. So in my page you will find only tips concerning summer activities.

I had spent two weeks in Chamonix in July 2008 and it was my first visit in this area. I liked it so much that in the summer of 2009 I spent another three weeks here and returned again for my summer holidays in 2011.

I was actually staying in the small village of Les Praz which is in fact more an 'appendix' to Chamonix than an independent village. However, since Les Praz has its own place in the database of Virtual Tourist, I have created a separate page for it.

    Lovely page with nice photo's. The view of the glacier is beautiful, and the ice cave would be quite an experience, especially since I live in a warm country!

    I visited Chamonix once when I was much younger. It lingers in my heart as one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. Thank you for the memories.

    It's a beautiful region and I love your pics. The one of the paraglider with the aiguille du Midi in the background is stunning!
