The Must-Read Guide to the Rhône Alpes

Here I have put together the must-read guide to the Rhône Alpes. It is pretty inclusive so I’ll do it as a bit of a bullet point. But it is a good start where to see all their ski resorts and which ones could tempt you for your perfect ski holiday.
The Rhône Alpes is an extensive area in the Central West of France. From west to east it offers the Auvergne Volcanoes to Lyon and the French Alps and Mont Blanc. This is the roof of Europe at 4,810 meters.

You must go to visit the Aiguille du Midi to see the Mont Blanc from a close distance, and try the Step into the Void. This is a glass cabin where you step into the abyss.
 
Another attraction is to take the train from the station in Chamonix into Montenvers. You get off at the end and you have a view of the end of the Mer de Glace. In summer you can go all the way down to the glacier and get into an ice cave. Going down the steps, you’ll see how fast the glacier is melting and the effects of climate change. It is a very shocking view. The terminal of Montenvers has a beautiful lodge. If you cannot stay there, you can still have lunch in its terrace. There is also a bigger restaurant in the main building.
