15. Aiguille du Midi, Chamonix
Nestled in the French Alps is a mountain in the Mont Blanc massif known as The Aiguille du Midi. This mountain receives over half a million guests per year just for the sights. Get up close and personal with this magnificent wonder of the world without having to put on your mountain-climbing gear. Your adventure up the mountain begins in Chamonix where you can board the cable car which holds the world record for highest vertical cable car starting at an altitude of 1,035 m and reaching 3,842 m.
Once you’ve reached the Aiguille summit, take in the (literally) breathtaking views as you sip on something hot at the café and peruse the gift shop. Even in the middle of summer, temperatures can dip to -10ºC, so make sure to put your toque and mittens on!
