Epic Adventures in Chamonix

Dive into Chamonix's top-rated adventures amid stunning Alpine landscapes!

The adventure capital of the world

Ultimate destination for thrill-chasers

As the gateway to Mont Blanc, the highest peak in the Alps, Chamonix attracts outdoorsy people from around the world in search of a new and epic adventure.

The whole area is one massive playground with world-class facilities, experienced guides, and numerous opportunities for both recreational and extreme activities.

The stunning Alpine setting, including glaciers, valleys, and dramatic peaks, also makes for a breathtaking backdrop for outdoor adventures.

A magnet for outdoor enthusiasts

Diverse terrain suitable for a wide range of activities caters to different skill levels and preferences, while the vibrant après-ski scene adds another dimension to its appeal. Here are four reasons why we love Chamonix:

  • Extensive trail network

Well-marked trails provide numerous options for exploration, leading to stunning viewpoints, alpine lakes, and picturesque villages full of history.

  • 22 peaks ready to be summited 

Chamonix sits within a region encompassing 22 summits that are more than 4,000 meters (13,123 feet) high, making it a paradise for high-altitude enthusiasts.

  • Off-piste terrain

Skiers often flock here for the chance to explore the challenging and thrilling terrain. The high-altitude glaciers make Chamonix a destination for summer skiing as well!

  • Mountaineering heritage

In 1760, two Chamonix locals guided Jacques Balmat to the summit of Mont Blanc, marking the beginning of the town’s mountaineering legacy.

My husband and I did the 7-day self guided tour through Nuyama. We had a great time and we really appreciated all the care Nuyama put into getting us prepared for our adventure! The guidebook and itinerary were perfect! The places they chose for us to stay were all great, and the food was delicious. It was just what we hoped it would be. We highly recommend booking through Nuyama and we will do so again when we are able to head back to Europe. Thank you so much Nuyama crew, you’re all amazing!!

As we prepared to leave we contemplated our amazing adventure and sense of accomplishment. Thank you to Nuyama for great organizational skills, prompt responses, sound advice along the way and the perfect for us choices of routes for each day. As we interacted with hosts and fellow hikers it became obvious Nuyama has built solid relationships and is highly respected. We felt confident doing this hike self guided because of our own experience and the support given. Thank you Nuyama! Experience of a lifetime!!

My wife and I recently completed the TMB Highlights Tour with Cloud 9 and Tom as our guide. It was the best trip of our lives. Challenging, beautiful, rewarding. We are still thinking about it daily and I’m actually emotional thinking that’s it’s over. Cloud 9 took care of everything and made it all very easy to plan. Tom did a great job making sure everyone was doing well and guiding us to the best spots in the trails. I couldn’t recommend them more!

This trip has been in the works for almost 3 years and through the Covid epidemic you somehow managed to pull it off. The additions and changes you had to make were remarkable in fitting our needs. How can an 11 day trip go off without 1 hiccup? It did because of your knowledge, professionalism and extreme dedication to your clients. As one of your guides(Suze) said: Emma never sleeps! Every single detail from luggage delivery, hotel accommodations, trip notes, maps, food requests(we had 2 vegetarians) was spot on. From the bottom of my heart, you made a 25 year dream to hike the Haute come true. It was way beyond my expectations. To do it with friends was even more special. On any future expeditions, I would never consider another person(or company) to arrange my trip. No wonder Richard Branson so highly recommends you. To all who read this review, I personally have arranged dozens of trips over the years, but I knew from the start that Emma was the one to arrange this one.

We just finished a 12 day Mont Blanc tour and with the help of Cloud 9 it was an incredible experience. Our original trip was booked in 2019 and postponed due to Covid. Cloud 9 offered a full refund or the opportunity to continue with no additional cost both years we postponed. Once we finally hit the trail, the accommodations, trip notes and attention to the smallest of details made the tour an outstanding experience for us. I will certainly consider using Cloud 9 again and highly recommend it to anyone wishing to tour Mont Blanc.

Excellent guide service. From the moment of booking to the end of the course, the staff and guides were helpful, enthusiastic, patient, and very knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

If you’re looking for a mountain guide to bring you out climbing, mountaineering, skiing or an all around alpine mentor, Jayson is the one. I’ve traveled the world with Jayson and other mountain guides and can confidently say he is the best in the business! A great teacher and a fun person to spend time with in the mountains.

Bruno Schull

Rob is a great guide, a great teacher, and a great person. I’ve worked with many guides to expand my range of skills and experiences in the mountains, and Rob is one of the very best. He literally wrote the books about guiding! (Check out his books about climbing and skiing). He is extremely generous with his knowledge and time, he focuses on making sure his clients have a great experience, and he genuinely loves the mountains. I will definitely go climbing and skiing with Ron again!

Charlotte Moyles

I was lucky to have a private tour with Alex, who had a brilliant knowledge of the area and shared interesting information about the climbers and skiers. Highly recommend!

Tom

Unreal trip. Beautiful views the whole way around the haute route. The guides and the logistic team made the whole experience all the more epic. Ace accommodation and food for the every day – just be prepared for the holiday blues when you get home.
