Halfway between Martigny in Switzerland and Chamonix in France, VerticAlp Emosson is a unique rail system allowing visitors to access a natural site nearly 2,000 m (6,500 ft) above sea level. From that lofty height, you'll enjoy an unparalleled view of the famed Mt. Blanc, the highest peak in the Alps. The rail is generally closed during the winter months, so be sure to check the website for opening dates and times before finalizing your plans.
