Hello, The entire Compagnie du Mont-Blanc team thanks you for sharing your experience. The tramway descent is in the mountain pastures, in the middle of nature, indeed ! We hope to see you again on your next visit to Chamonix. Best regards,

We booked online - end Aug and beginning Sept there are fewer trains and a much less choice of times to book online. You can get a good deal if you know a couple of weeks in advance which slot you want. A very exciting ascent and marvellous view of the glacier. The possible walks - one descent to the next station were not described very well so we only went to see the glacier and have a picnic. The descent became more monotonous!

Definitely worth a visit, value for money, we thought it would fill a couple of hours but can do a full day of activity if prepared better than us.

Breathtaking views on the "romantic trip" with the train, which stopped in time somewhere in history (in positive way). The experience I would recommend especially to families and other who adore mountain view and magic landscape views

A fabulous train trip up the highest mountain in Europe, this charming train trip takes you up to the edge of the glacier.
First the practicals, book in advance, it sells out, start your journey at the bottom, for best chance of a seat. When you get to the top, get your return time, and allow at least one hour at the top to explore.
This really is a must do, the train gives a near perpendicular route to the top of the mountain, the views are amazing, at some points it feels you are above the mountains. It is spectacular, a superb day out, suitable for everyone

A must do, for sure! But once in your life could be enough… As mentioned by many before me, comfort is not what’s on offer. Splendid views and a tick the box experience is offered for sure. We took the train in peak season, leaving us with a bunch of crying toddlers who really really didn’t enjoy the time it took to get to the top station. Views from there are exquisite, seeing the (disappearing) gletsjer with your own eyes is impressive!

We were so glad we took the cogwheel train up the mountain. We didn't realize how long the entire journey was-1 hour 15 minutes each way. We went late in the day, so we didn't have time to hike around or stop at the "refuge" at the top for refreshments. I suggest going early, bring water and snacks as you will be on the train a long time.

The inclines that the train ascends/descends are very steep and make for an unforgettable experience. The views of the mountains slowly unwind before you. It is a very relaxing trip and the views from the summit are spectacular. Definitely glad that we did this!

The Tramway du Mont Blanc offered us astonishing views during the trip, both on the way up as well as on the way down. Never a dull moment! We greatly enjoyed the time at the top to walk around and experienced a close view on the Mont Blanc.

If you are staying in St Gervais taking the tram up to ski Les Houches is just a delightful experience. The cost is included in your ski pass. Highly recommended.
