"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.
Kick off your visit on the 6th (Sat): stroll through Brevent Cable Car and then fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour.

Plan my Chamonix trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Melbourne, Australia to Chamonix is an approximately 26-hour combination of flight and shuttle. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or do a combination of flight and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 9 hours traveling from Melbourne to Chamonix. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Lyon.
