Vallee Blanche Ridge Walk, by Ola Cedell

To get to the top of the amazing Aiguille du Midi in the Mont Blancmassivet, you need to get with the world’s most famous cable car from Chamonix. It’s the closest thing to the top of Mont Blanc without climbing. Walking on the ridge is a must to achieve the classic over 20 km long glacier ride Vallee Blanche. Enjoy panoramic views of France, Italy and Switzerland and take a step into the void for a memorable and unique experience.
