Chamonix Best Summer Hiking Trails and Trekking Guides

La Jonction Chamonix Chamonix Best Summer Hiking Trails and Trekking Guides

Chamonix Valley is a beautiful walking country with vast dark and light pine and spruce forests, gleaming glaciers and soaring rocky peaks. Discover the diverse natural beauty and wildlife scattered throughout the valley. Walks are well sign-posted and accessible either from the valley floor or by cable car (open usually from 15th June to mid September). If you are using lifts, it is very important, especially at the end of your journey, to check when the lift closes as you will face a long and potentially difficult walk back down to the valley floor if you miss the last one.

Gear and Clothing

For gear, lightweight boots, waterproofs and a mobile phone with the PGHM's number on it (+33 (0) 4 50 53 16 89) are essential. Don't forget sunglasses, sunscreen, and lip protection. From the months of June to August shorts may be sufficient. Always carry drinking water and make sure to check our website for the weather forecast before you set off. Beware of patches of old snow, especially early in the season, in some instances crampons and trekking poles will be useful; take local advice or check here for more information on the risk of trekking.
