- Trip to Chamonix, thursday the 26th in the afternoon.

Departing from Chamonix (at 1035 m altitude), the Montenvers cog railway train, in circulation since 1908, provides easy, safe access to the foot of the Mer de Glace (1913 m), the biggest glacier in France (7km long, 200 m thick), in 20 minutes. This historic site marked the start of mountain tourism in the 19th century, and offers panoramic views of prestigious peaks like the Drus (3754 m) and the Grandes Jorasses (4208m).

On site, the ice cave tour is a journey to the centre of the glacier, carved anew each year by human hands: discover an original collection of ice sculptures, depicting the life of mountain people in the early 19th century. You can get there by walking along a footpath for around 20 minutes, or by cable car. The Crystal Gallery has a collection of items from the Mont-Blanc massif. Like the Crystal Gallery which, dug into the rock, has a collection of rare, extremely beautiful items on display, most of which come from the massif: quartz, smoky quartz and amethyst. Visitors can also discover the Museum of Alpine Fauna, and Montenvers Museum. This is a tour that won’t leave you cold!
