On Sunday 27th September 2015: Battle of the Cows or the Cow fighting, a pure alpine tradition. This spectacle is a battle that designates the "Queen", the commander of the herd. Refreshments, snacks and fun for all day long!
There is a multitude of summer activities on offer in Chamonix. Enroll in a paragliding school or take a tandem flight. Try the thrill of white water rafting or canyoning.
Chamonix and the neighbouring region are meccas of climbing, mountaineering and trail running. On a rainy day, pay a visit to the impressive indoor climbing wall in Les Houches or the Chamonix Sports Center.
What can I do in the Chamonix Valley during my winter ski holidays? Fancy a bit of skiing, snowboarding, telemarking, cross-country skiing, ski-touring, mountaineering, ice climbing, ski joering, paragliding or snowshoeing? Well, then you've come to the right place.
