Overview

Book
France's Chamonix Valley, with its spectacular backdrop of Mont Blanc, Europe's highest mountain, is the perfect setting for a family adventure holiday. Based at our comfortable chalet in the village of Argentiere, this superb activity holiday will ensure that your family gets the most out of their week in the Alps. This holiday is designed to involve the whole family, with a fun packed itinerary and the option to finish off the evening with a soak in the hot tub! Adapting the itinerary as necessary, the local guide will escort you on the activities and choose scenic day hikes along famous Alpine trails close to the border with both Switzerland and Italy. Activities offered include introductory canyoning, whitewater rafting or hydrospeed' on the River Arve, as well as the exciting high ropes course at the Chamonix Adventure Park. You will also be able to ride Europe's highest cable-car to the breathtaking viewpoint of the Aiguille du Midi, take the Mont Blanc Express train to Vallorcine and stay overnight in a mountain hut. Also available locally are swimming, ice-skating, biking and the summer 'luge'. This is an action-packed week of fun and adventure at the heart of the French Alps. If you are looking for a two-week holiday then you can combine this holiday with our Family Tour du Mont Blanc Walking Week Holiday, a mini-trek on this classic circuit.

Suitable for children from 8 years old

With our comfortable chalet base and a variety of included activities, this itinerary should appeal to all families with active children. Our four walking days include cable cars to the top of the mountains and around 4-6 hrs of walking and up to 600m of ascent and descent. We have optional rafting, hydrospeeding, canyoning, an adventure tree tops course and rock climbing. There is also the option of taking the cable car up to the Aiguille du Midi to 3842m. Also included in this exciting holiday is a walk to the Miage refuge where we overnight, meaning we need to carry our overnight things (sheet sleeping bags and teddy bear) in our backpacks. The walks are on good and well-marked trails and they are suitable for children provided they are used to walking in the hills. The itinerary is suitable for children aged 8 and above, although children must be aged 12 to do the hydrospeed and canyoning (children under 12yrs will raft instead). Also note that height restrictions may apply for certain activities. The itinerary includes one night in a mountain hut, all other nights are at our chalet in Argentiere. Chamonix is served by several low-cost airlines flying into Geneva. You should allow approximately EUR200 per person if you wish to take part in all activities. Please see 'spending money' for activities break down.
