"Situated near the massive peaks of the Aiguilles Rouges and, most notably, the Aiguille du Midi, Chamonix is one of the oldest ski resorts in France and known as the Alpine Capital of the World.
On the 15th (Thu), fly down the slopes at Sport 2000 Cham'Sport Aiguille du Midi, then head outdoors with Brevent Cable Car, then glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and finally hit the slopes at Domaine des Planards. Here are some ideas for day two: explore the activities along Lac Blanc, then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Tunnel du Mont-Blanc, and then take in the awesome beauty at Aiguille du Midi.
