& BIKING HOLIDAYS
Chamonix is quite different to the typical alpine holiday resorts and really is a genuine year round mountain town. The summer months transform the Valley into a lush green paradise surrounded by the highest snow-capped peaks in Europe.
The skiers are replaced by hiking, climbing, mountain biking enthusiasts who love the beautiful natural surroundings.

In summer the valley really comes alive with visitors walking, mountain biking, climbing and anything that can take to the air. Chamonix is actually busier in August than it is in February - a pretty unique position for a ski town.
To really get the most out of your trip to Chamonix let FTX Holidays take the strain with a catered holiday. We'll pick you up from the airport, cook you breakfast in the morning, drive you to the slopes, show you around the mountain, bring you home where tea and cakes will be waiting and prepare a 3 course meal with wine while you enjoy the sun setting over Mt Blanc.
Unlike the purpose built resorts, Chamonix is a beautiful and lively French town full of character and characters, with enough pubs and clubs, bars and cafes to keep even the most energetic of you amused. The mountains and the slopes to be ridden, are quite simply incredible. If you haven't been to Chamonix before you must, if you have, its safe to say you will want to come again and again (have a look in the photo gallery for some action shots in the valley).
