Directions to Montenvers - Mer de Glace

The ‘sea of ice’ was discovered in 1741, and has been one of the main attractions in Chamonix ever since. The Mer de Glace is France’s biggest glacier; it’s 7 km long and has a surface area of more than 40 km2.

From 1908 the Montenvers Train made the site easily accessible and even more popular. More than 1 million people visit the glacier every year, enjoying the magnificent views over the sea of ice and the neighbouring peaks.

Other than the amazing surroundings, you can take the gondola down (or walk down) to the ice caves, taking you straight into the heart of the glacier. Or visit the Montenvers museum and find out everything about the construction of the train and be blown away by their crystal collection. There is also an Museum of Alpine Fauna, where you can see chamois, marmottes etc. And there are plenty of walking routes that start or end at the Mer de Glace. There is also a café and a souvenir shop on site.

Opening hours: Every day, all year round. First departure 8.30am, last departure back to Chamonix 5.30pm.

Prices: adults 23 euros, kids 18,40 euros.
