Leaving from the centre of Chamonix, the little red train will take you on a panoramic ride up to France’s largest glacier, the famous Mer de Glace – “Sea of Ice” on a beautiful 20-minute journey. You might find you’re sharing the journey on the way up with mountaineers heading for a glacier hike, or else returning to Chamonix with skiers and boarders who have just completed the Vallée Blanche.

Reaching the top you will leave the station, and you will be amazed by the view that will open in front of you - you will see the extraordinary view of the glacier, frozen like a sea in motion. From the station, you will take the bubble lift down and enter the ice cave – carved into the glacier anew every year.

During the whole tour, your private glaciologist will tell you everything about the place. A glaciologist is a person who observes and studies glaciers, analyzes the movement and physical properties of glaciers and their evolution for centuries.
