The Tramway du Mont Blanc runs from Le Fayet or St. Gervais station to the Nid d’Aigle station (2372 m), which overlooks the gorgeous Bionassay glacier. In the winter months, the train stops at Bellevue (1794 m). This 18 km route follows the south side of the Mont Blanc, and was build almost a century ago.
In the winter, when the Tramway stops at Bellevue, you can ski down to Les Houches. This ski area is especially suitable for families because of its easy slopes. Another option is cross-country skiing with blue and red loops for example to Lac Bleu. Snowshoeing is an easy and original way to discover the mountains, and the Bellevue area is perfectly suitable for it.
In the summer, the Tramway gives access to numerous hikes from the Col de Voza, Bellevue and Nid d’Aigle. Or use the train to take mountain bikes up and ride down towards Les Houches or St. Gervais. The Tramway is also used as a starting point to ascent the Mont Blanc and other mountaineering routes. And you can also access plenty of great climbing areas from here.
There is a fast food restaurant at Bellevue and a refreshment room and take-away restaurant at the Col de Voza and Nid d’Aigle
