Today we will know better one of the world capitals of hiking and skiing, although it has a little more than 10,000 inhabitants.

We are talking about Chamonix, a village in the east of France in the department of Haute-Savoie and has been blessed by nature as it is located right at the foot of Mont Blanc.

Chamonix is our base of operations in the French Alps since it is the beginning of most of our adventure trips in this zone. Besides, is very close to Geneva airport, so you have many direct flights from Spain.

Besides, Chamonix, is located at 1.100 meters high, so its height and location make it a paradise for nature lovers and adventure travel.

This French locality has 350 kilometers of signposted hiking routes, 50 km of tracks for mountain bikes, climbing, mountaineering, summer tobogganing, paragliding, canyoning, golf, a great variety of exhibitions and excellent gastronomy. Do you begin to understand why we like it so much?

This is the Chamonix of today, but its history has always been linked to travelers and adventurers for more than 250 years. Among its main events is the organization of the Olympic Winter Games of 1924.

From its 4,810 meters, Mont Blanc watches the valley in silence while its visitors enjoy the treasures that this mountain village sprinkled with all kinds of shops, sunny terraces, parks, lakes, diverse cable cars and trains of rack that allow to accede to the universe of the mountain and to contemplate its spectacular landscape.

This is Chamonix, our base in the French Alps.
