Day hiking Chamonix means a compact patchwork of trails and great mountain views!
The Chamonix valley offers an incredible variety of accessible day hikes.
Join a local mountain leader and discover the beauty of the natural environment, the history and the local fauna and flora.
Are you ready to escape the daily routine and dive into nature?
Let us take you to one of the deep blue mountain lakes overlooking Mont Blanc or explore a high balcony walk on the south or north side of the valley with us. We also like to hike to small mountain chalets to enjoy a local speciality and pick some blue berries or wild strawberries along the trail.
If you rather like to do a high alpine hike above tree line, Chamonix offers that too. We take one of the many cable cars to start and will find some alpine flowers, maybe a group of ibex but for sure lot’s of great views!
Let us know what you’re wishes are and we design a great day outdoors for you.
Perfect for families and privat groups!

How to get to Chamonix, France
Chamonix lies on the foot of Mont Blanc very near the Swiss and Italian border. If you are travelling from outside of France, then flying into Geneva is the quickest way to get to Chamonix. Geneva has a great choice of airlines offering good value on flights all year round. Once at the airport you can take an airport transfer that brings you to the valley in a bit more than an hour. Once here, buses and trains are free with an overnight stay. From Milano (ITA) you can find buses to Aosta, Courmayeur and than trough the Mont Blanc tunnel to Chamonix. From Martigny (CH) take the scenic train to Chamonix that takes a bit over an hour.
