Are you looking for ideas for a relaxing and nature weekend? Do you want to go to Chamonix soon to take advantage of the resort and its privileged location at the foot of Mont-Blanc? Discover our top 3 activities for a relaxing and nature weekend in Chamonix.
Go up to the Aiguille du Midi cable car
If the Chamonix station already allows you to benefit from a superb view of Mont-Blanc, it is also the starting point for the cable car that will take you to the Aiguille du Midi. Unmissable excursion in the Alps, the ascent to the Aiguille du Midi with the Aiguille du Midi cable car is the first activity that we recommend in Chamonix. At 3842 meters above sea level, you can enjoy a breathtaking panorama of the Alps. This attraction is always very popular, a reservation is strongly recommended especially in summer if you want the chance to do this activity during your weekend in Chamonix.
Discover the Mer de Glace glacier
Another must-see activity that we then recommend, the Mer de Glace is the largest glacier in France. To get to the Mer de Glace glacier, you will have to take the famous Montenvers cog train which is already quite an adventure and will take you through sublime landscapes. This typical train departs from Chamonix and will drop you off at the foot of the glacier. You will then be able to benefit from a magical panorama in a unique natural environment. On site, you can also go to the ice cave to continue your discovery. Throughout your excursion, be sure to take care of this exceptional natural site. This is already very weakened by global warming.
Stay in a hotel with spa
Finally, to combine activities in nature and relaxation, we strongly recommend that you stay in a hotel with spa during your next weekend in Haute-Savoie. What could be more pleasant when returning from a hike or a discovery of the Sand Sea than to enjoy a spa in Chamonix. If you are looking to treat yourself to a relaxing weekend, this accommodation option is ideal to allow you to enjoy a relaxing moment all to yourself while being in a unique setting in Chamonix. Focus on your well-being for your next weekend and opt for a hotel with spa.
