Chamonix without skies

FRENCH ALPES: Chamonix is the legendary alpine destination for ski entusiast that are craving steep slopes.

But there are far more to do in this city in the French Alps!

The houses are adorable, and there are plenty of cosy cafes and restaurants to visit. Remember, this is a French town, with all the culinary and sophistication of other French places. Here you can have good champagne to enjoy in the spring sun, for just a quarter of the price in Norway.

There is good shopping, spas and a lot of sights. I would recommend taking the train or the cabelcars up the mountain side, even though you don´t carry skies. The views are amazing! And the ice caves in the glacier Mer de Glace by Mont Blanc is well worth the visit. And that is a visit which best without skies.
