Surroundings Vallorcine

Admire the stunning surroundings

The French Alps have a beautiful natural landscape with impressive views in both winter and summer. An absolute highlight is the top of the Aiguille du Midi, which offers a spectacular view of Mont Blanc and Italy. A brisk, long walk will take you to the summit, or you can take the cable car, which goes steeply up the mountainside. The route to the highest point is quite an experience in itself, and from there you can take in the beautiful view. Are you a true daredevil? Go and have a look in the glass cube, where you can look down as much as 1,000 metres through a glass floor!
