Chamonix: A Hiker's Paradise

Travel & Tourism
If you’re looking to relax and escape from the city, a short break spent hiking in the French Alps is ideal for you. Chamonix, with its maintained trails and well-signposted routes, offers long and easy walks across beautiful valleys. Let yourself be replenished by this impressive mountain range’s fresh air and tranquil atmosphere.

Cascade du Dard

Hiking in the French Alps offers some terrific views, and this route is no exception. With just 200m of altitude to gain, this small climb is perfect for a pleasant morning stroll –even your pet dog will enjoy it! Starting in Grépon car park, this trail begins with a leisurely 45-minute walk up a scenic winding route. At the top, you’ll reach a remarkable 20m waterfall. Take your time to sit, relax and admire its beauty while enjoying a bite to eat at the cosy chalet. There’s no rush, it only takes 30 minutes to walk back down.

Grand Balcon Nord

This ‘balcony’ trail is a 5-hour trip which takes you along either side of the valley. Spend the day hiking in the French Alps and enjoy a panoramic view of the area. The walk starts from the Grand Hôtel du Montenvers, which you can get to by train from Chamonix’s station. You can then choose to head towards the Signal Forbes and gain more height to get a better view of the Mer de Glacehead; or you can stay at a lower altitude and follow the trail towards Plan de l’Aiguille. As you walk towards Aiguille du Midi, let yourself be blown away by the glorious view of the Glaciers des Bossons and Brévent-Flégère. A cable car will then take you back to Chamonix for just €30.50.

Lac Blanc

This stunning lake in the Reserve Naturelle des Aiguilles Rouge is the epitome of hiking in the French Alps. Surrounded by snow-covered mountains, the clear blue waters are truly something to behold. It’s an easy 1 hour 45 minute walk from the Flégère cable car, or a slightly more challenging hour and a quarter hike from the Index chair lift (a return ticket to Flégère or Index is just €17). The lake also has a restaurant so you can spend an afternoon soaking up the sites with a glass of wine.
