Chamonix offers a range of activities during summer and winter such as skiing, climbing, hiking and golf.
For most people the first thing that comes to mind when they hear the name Chamonix-Mont Blanc is alpine skiing.
In the heart of alpinism, of course climbing plays a big part. Some of the world’s best climbers are born and raised in Chamonix, and there is no coincidence that the world’s very first mountain guide association, “Compagnie des guides de Chamonix”, was founded here as early as 1921.
In 1741, the first tourists to Chamonix were transported to Montenvers on the backs of mules in order to admire the glaciers.
Golf in Chamonix? No it is not a joke, the golf course nestles between the Mont Blanc range and the Aiguilles Rouges.
