Being the site of the first Winter Olympics in 1924, you'd probably expect Chamonix, France, to provide you with a multitude of winter sports - and you'd be right. Winter activities in Chamonix include tobogganing, skiing, snow shoeing and mountaineering to name just a few. Heading over in summer? Not to worry - you can try white-water rafting, rock climbing, mountain biking or paragliding. With Mont Blanc, the tallest mountain in Europe, to the north and the Mer de Glace glacier close by, you're within easy reach of some of Europe's most spectacular natural wonders. The resort also offers plenty of indoor activities - spend the day shopping, visit a bowling alley or arcade, indulge at one of the many restaurants and if you're not tired enough to head back to your hostel early, relax at a brasserie or bar and dance until the small hours at one of the resort's vibrant nightclubs.
