Enjoy our video and photographic walking tour of Aiguille du Midi in Chamonix, France.

Aiguille du Midi translates as “Needle from the south or Needle from midday (noon)”.  Aiguille du Midi is at 3,842 m (12,605 ft.), well above sea level and is at the base of Mt. Blanc the highest point in Europe dividing the French and Italian border. Two cable cars bring you to the top with the roundtrip price being 50 Euro’s. Though some elect to ski back down to Chamonix via the Vallee Blanche (white valley) over the glaciers (guides are advised for newcomers).The cable cars are quick 15- 20 minutes each, though the line waiting time can vary.

We enjoyed the experience of taking the Go Pro video as well as editing the piece and adding some music from a very good band, The Dave Matthews Band.
