But beware, Chamonix is not just a ski resort, it is also a popular city for tourists in the summer thanks to the various activities that one can practice (hiking, climbing, biking, rafting, canyoning , climbing, paragliding, wingsuit, tennis ...).
No introduction of Mont Blanc which alone attracts large numbers of tourists. The sights of the Aiguille du Midi and Montenvers are among the most visited in the world (3rd). With the recent creation of the "Not in a vacuum", Chamonix has managed to surprise and amaze once again.
