Day 4 - Morning
Aiguille du Midi

Get on the next tram up to the Aiguille du Midi (Aiguille translated… needle you’ll see why) at 12,605ft. A mythical place where climbing teams start out their long journey for the ascent of Mont Blanc, 15,774ft. Or in winter months it is where skiers start out their adventure of La Vallée Blanche.

 

This is the closest anyone (without hiking) can get to the Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest summit. The Aiguille du Midi has a restaurant and other facilities but the newest and most exciting one is “Step into the void”. An actual plexiglass box hanging (securely) off the side of the building.

 

This wonderful natural playground will not disappoint.
