Hiking at Montenvers

Hiking in the cool air and astounding scenery of Chamonix is wonderful, and some of the finest walks of the Alps are accessed from Les Praz. You can walk up through the cool pine and larch forests, as the scenery shifts and changes through the trees, or the Flegere lift can take you up to the beginning of the paths.

The weather can change very quickly in the mountains, and you should always make sure you are properly equipped with water, good boots, waterproofs and sun protection. Always check the weather forecast before setting off.

I’ve posted some of the hikes that we’ve enjoyed here, but these aren’t intended as any substitute for a proper guidebook - just for inspiration! Most of the walks in the area are very well signposted, but you should always carry a map.
