Your comprehensive guide to visiting Chamonix in summer

Our summer guide is here to help you make the most of your trip to Chamonix in summer. Below you’ll find everything you need to know about visiting Chamonix in summer, including lift passes, walking and hiking, activities and day trips.

Explore Chamonix valley…

Many of Chamonix’s ski lifts also open in the summer to give easy and affordable access to the high mountains – see our guide to the lift areas and lift passes. Once you’re up there, you can enjoy the views on your mountain bike or on one of the many well-indicated hikes and walks – or for a bird’s eye view book a parapente flight! There are loads of activities for adults and families with kids to enjoy in Chamonix in the mountains and direct from the valley floor.

… and beyond

As well as all the exciting activities, Chamonix  has lots to see and do all year round, just see our entertainment guide which has suggestions for must-see attractions and things to see and do all year round. Our transport team also offer summer day trips and adventures for all ages to help you get around Chamonix and beyond, as well as in-resort transport and airport transfers to make organising your trip even easier.
