Situated in the Haute-Savoie region of France, Chamonix is bordered by Switzerland and Italy and dominated by the incredible Mont Blanc Massif mountain chain which peaks at the top of Mont Blanc (4810m) - the highest in Western Europe.
Whilst the principal town is of the same name, 'Chamonix' is often used in reference to the whole valley, stretching over 28km from Le Fayet to Switzerland. It is, however, made up of several distinct and charming villages including Servoz, Les Houches, Les Bossons, Les Praz, Les Tines, Argentiere, Montroc, and at the top of the valley, Le Tour. As such, there are six separate lift systems in the valley, each offering a wide variety of activities.
To help you get your bearings, in this section you will find street maps, activity maps, and ski piste maps for the whole valley.
