Create an itinerary including Skyway Monte Bianco
Climb to the roof of the Alps on Skyway Monte Bianco. From the village of La Palud, ascend to the point at 3,462 m (11,358 ft), and from there gaze at the high peaks of the Piedmont region of the Alps and the Aosta Valley. You can continue on to the Aiguille du Midi cable car station 5 km (3.1 mi) beyond. Stop after any of the three legs of the cable car to sled in the snow or visit the crystal museum. The border of France and Italy splits the platform at the top. Plan your Skyway Monte Bianco visit and explore what else you can see and do in Courmayeur using our Courmayeur journey builder tool.

  • This was a breathtaking ride to the top of the Skyway. Very children friendly and enjoyable to the sight. I would definitely go on this ride again

  • We drove 2.5 hours just to ride the Skyway in July, and it was worth every minute and every cent. Even the drive into the Alps from the south was magnificent. But the views from both stages of the cable car were breathtaking, in all directions. The facilities are also wonderful - we had delicious hot cocoa and chocolate cake at 3,466 meters up Monte Bianco. You can go outside both at that level and at the midway point, where there is an amazing Alpine garden; when we were there it was brimming with flowers, butterflies and bees. Don't miss this!
  • Glad we did this. Reservations are required but know that the online and real time situation is a bit confusing. Our dog was allowed with muzzle during the gondola ride, then it can be removed. They are very strict about this. The Bistrot restaurant is worth the time and expense, make sure you make a reservation.
