At Le Refuge des Aiglons, we enjoy the mountains all year long!

During the summer season, Chamonix is a top outdoor destination.

And Le Refuge des Aiglons is happy to welcome you for an amazing summer stay!

Treat yourself to some hiking in the mountains with almost 350km of pedestrian trails. We can advise you about choosing trails and guides.

Those who aren’t afraid of heights can also find perfect conditions for rock-climbing, via ferrata and mountaineering.

Paragliding, mountain biking, golf, trail-running or tennis are also among the many things you might want to do here, everything is possible!

The town and the valley are very well furnished in terms of sports equipment and grounds.

Water activities

Water activities such as rafting, kayaking, and canyoning in the mountain streams are also very popular.

Of course, swimming pools and spas are also open if you want to enjoy the water with more tranquility.

Families can also take trips to various wildlife parks where they can see various animals and plants from the valley.

Every year, many events are organized in Chamonix, in the valley, and more particularly at Le Refuge des Aiglons, which plays host to concerts and other cultural events.
