Chamonix is the most famous mountain town in the world. It is where mountaineering began and its incredible hiking trails are on the 'bucket list' of most hikers. Its peerless reputation owes everything to the mighty Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Western Europe. Our hikes will take you to the finest viewpoints of the mountain and its glaciers. Only the most epic walks in the Chamonix Valley are included.
Each walk has been carefully selected to enable easy access by public transport, including the Chamonix Valley's incredible cable car network. Real IGN maps are included (1:25,000) so there is no need to carry additional maps, and numbered waypoints link the Real Maps to the book's clear descriptions. There are graded walks to suit all abilities and everything the hiker needs to know is included: route descriptions, difficulty, weather, how to get there, information on wildlife and plants and much more.
