Have you ever imagined to reach the top of Monte Bianco? Now you can climb up to the European’s top peak riding a futuristic cableway.
Now this dream can be realized with the Skyway Monte Bianco. This unique cableway has been built following the most up-to-date technologies, to assure safety and stability to the passengers. In less than 20 minutes you will ride inside an air-conditioned and rotating cabin moving from Courmayeur to Punta Helbronner station. Along the way that will bring you closer to the highest mountain peak in Europe, you will have the possibility to enjoy a 360° degree view that will enlarge your horizon.
Reaching the top of the Monte Bianco is an unforgettable experience all-year-round. Booking here on My Tour is useful for two main reasons. First, you have skip-the-line tickets, and that is a good point because during the high season or the weekends the cableway is very crowded. Secondarily, with this tour you have a 3-course meal included, having the possibility to taste Aosta Valley local products in a wonderful scenario. Furthermore, during the whole day, you can sunbathe while enjoying the view!
In order to let visitors decide on their own, the climb is divided into two parts. Leaving from Entrèves-Courmayeur, in less than 10 minutes you’ll reach the Alpine refuge of Mont Frety (Rifugio Pavillon) at an altitude of 2,173 meters. For those who suffer heart-related problems, this stop can be enough. Mont Frety is not only an Alpine refuge but a charming terrace in the sky, where you can visit the botanical garden and the mineral museum. For those who appreciate the plant world, the stop at the botanical garden is mandatory. The Giardino Saussurea (Monte Bianco Alpine Garden) is a true evidence of the Italian Alps vegetation. Extended on a 7,000 square meters surface it offers two main areas - the rock garden presenting plants organized by their geographical origin, and the high mountain flora area. The best season to get into the garden is July, when the flowering process begins. Their growing cycle extends over July, August, and September.
Eating in Aosta Valley is a unique experience, doing it at those altitudes can be even more wonderful. After your full-visit at the environments, your lunch will be served at Mont Frety. Included in the price of this tour there is a three-course meal served at the Buffet Alpino, where the chef Agostino Buillas will introduce you to the true mountain flavors. Awesome food like the Italian fonduta, the polenta concia, and different varieties of grappa.
After lunch, we’ll take again the cableway to climb close to the top. The highest reachable point is Punta Helbronner at 3,466 meters above sea level. As you can see from this video of Punta Helbronner, here we’ll really touch the sky. Thanks to the several observation decks built for the visitors, here we have the possibility to admire the glaciers and some of the stunning peaks of the Italian-French White Mountain, like Dente del Gigante and Cresta di Rochefort.
