Chamonix is what all my Alpine French/Swiss dreams are made of, its’s so dreamy!
We had a few meals in town and enjoyed them all, lots of al fresco opportunities!
The town is very outdoorsy with lots of hikers, mountain bikers and trail runners around. It was so tempting to buy all the pretty outdoor gear they are selling.
We took this little tour train around town when it was raining to see more sights.
Usually we love these little town tours but other than keeping us out of rain I don’t think it was worth it. You can walk Chamonix easily on your own.
We found a little playground.
Then made our way over to Le Brévent.
Brevent and its great panoramic view of the Chamonix Valley including a stunning view of Mont Blanc. From Chamonix, you can take the gondola/telecabine lift to Plan Praz (1,999m), then the cable car to Le Brévent (2,525m).
We had already eaten lunch in town but I wish we had waited and eaten here, the views are stunning!
We explored around the top and read up on the history of mountaineering in the area.
We did a little hiking as well before heading down and back across town to our RV.
We loved Chamonix SO SO much but it was time to move on to Switzerland next!
