  • On a visit to Chamonix is one of the programs. To reach the Aiguille du Midi is necessary to catch two ski-lifts and the journey is comfortable. In winter go well wrapped up with Hat, gloves and a good coat so you can enjoy the view with cold and wind. The scenery is gorgeous, don't miss the photo in transparent cube. Everything is very well explained and flagged. Without a lot of people (queue) the full tour takes some 2:30.
