Courmayeur, Italy's oldest ski resort, is flanked by two mountains: Chécrouit and Val Veny. The shape of the valley is such that you can see the Mont Blanc mountain chain. Mont Blanc (4810 m) is the highest mountain in Europe. To reach the resort from the Mont Blanc Valley it's possible to use the gondolas which leave from Courmayeur and Val Veny, the stations which are found respectively in the towns of Courmayeur and Entrèves. In the summer it's possible to trek the specular “Tour du Mont Blanc”, or “TMB”, trail. It's one of the most scenic trails in the Alps, and winds through France, Italy and Switzerland. At least 10 days are necessary to cover the entire trail, which is almost 200 km long. It's also possible in the summer to take a series of gondolas to Aiguille du Midì, a station just below the peak of Mont Blanc on the French side. Three gondolas transport visitors up over 2000m from the valley floor at Helbronner Point to the peak. At the first station, Pavillon du Mont Fréty, it's possible to enjoy the Pavillon du Mont Fréty Natural Oasis, home to the Saussurea Alpine Garden, which is one of the highest gardens in Europe and which hosts over 900 alpine plant species. It's also possible to visit the Crystal Exhibit and the magnificent Ice Terrace with its 360° view of the Alpine arc. Crossing the glaciers is an extraordinary aerial voyage across the heart of the Mont Blanc massif: a half hour trip on a panoramic gondola with breathtaking views while suspended above glaciers and crevasses that connects to Aiguille du Midì (3842 m).
