Les Houches sits at the bottom end of the Chamonix Valley and is a popular place for hikers, mountaineers and mountain bikers in the summer months.
In the summer the Prarion gondola and the Bellevue cable car operate, plus you also have access to the Tramway du Mont Blanc train which leads from St Gervais all the way up to the Nid d'Aigle, a popular place for mountaineers to start their ascents from.
The Prarion gondola & the Bellevue cable car accept mountain bikes as this is one of the few areas in the Chamonix Valley with a dedicated downhill mountain biking area and you can take bikes on the first and last train of the day on the Tramway du Mont Blanc.
Just a short walk along the mountain top will bring you to the start of the Tour du Mont Blanc route and plenty of other hiking routes and trails which connect to neighbouring resorts.
