The King of the Alps for unforgettable summer and winter holidays
It is the highest mountain in the Alps, and the whole of Europe. At an altitude of 4,807 metres, Mont Blanc is a true paradise for mountaineering and downhill skiing enthusiasts. The King of the Alps is part of the Mont Blanc massif, which stretches over 400 square kilometres between the Aosta Valley and Haute Savoie and includes such lofty peaks as the Dent du Géant, Mont Dolent and the Spires of Chamonix.
The main reference point for winter sports is the Mont Blanc - Courmayeur ski resort with 100 kilometres of groomed and off-piste trails, 33 pistes with varying gradients and 18 ski lifts that take you up to an altitude of 2,755 metres. With the Skyway Mont Blanc cable car, you can reach 3,466 metres and enjoy a unique view of the sky.
Those looking for some ideas for summer holidays at the foot of the majestic Mont Blanc can count on kilometres of trekking and mountain biking routes starting from Courmayeur, such as the 170 kilometres of the Tour du Mont Blanc, or from Planpincieux with the so-called Mont Blanc Balcony, one of the most beautiful trails in Italy.
