What awaits you during this activity : The cemeteries of Chamonix

Strolling through the alleys of the Chamonix cemeteries will give us the opportunity to bring back to life many forgotten citizens.

We will go back in time to the town of Chamonix and especially the mountaineers.

In the Biollay cemetery and the English cemetery we will evoke these mythical characters, illustrious or anonymous, who have made the great and small history of the Chamonix valley. Edward Whymper, Louis Lachenal, Lionel Terray, Roger Frison Roche... The guides of the Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix but also professionals or amateurs "fallen" during a race in the Mont Blanc massif.

We will evoke some original personalities of the mountain society. Visiting these two cemeteries is a fascinating discovery of the mountain world.

Your guide for this activity in the Alps : Christine

In love with her region
I take great pleasure in sharing my taste and passion for history and heritage. My job is to shed light on a habitat, a church, a piece of art, etc., in order to make visitors want to see and learn more about it. Being a tour guide is not something that can be improvised. To lead a public to discover cities, villages, museums or monuments requires a lot of research, and we must always keep our knowledge up to date. More than forty years in this profession have taught me how to guide my public's vision in order to detect the hidden secrets of a site that we believe to be familiar. I like to explore the past in order to better understand the richness of the present.
