Les Grands Montets in summer offers two totally different experiences: the pastures of Lognan at 1970m and the ice-world of the Glacier d’Argentière up to the summit at 3275m. From the top of the first cable car (Lognan), walk 40 minutes to view some of the most spectacular ice-falls in the Chamonix valley and from the second cable car, mountaineers will depart for some of Chamonix’s most notorious peaks – the Aiguille Verte, the Droites and the Drus. There are some pleasant descents which you can do on foot or mountain bike which can also link up to the ‘Petit Balcon Nord’ for access back to Chamonix.

You can also book a tandem parapente flight from the top of the Grands Montets pass at 3220m or contact the Resort Team to find out about mountaineering and glacier hiking with a guide.
