The advantage of Saint Gervais is that is a real town where you can explore everything from Le Fayet to Bettex, the skiing, through to the authentic Savoyard village of Saint Nicolas de Saint Gervais or Véroce and its historic centre with its typical spa-town architecture. Whether you choose to walk, explore, ski or snowboard... On the paths, trails, freeride spots or in the snowpark, whatever you choose you'll be overlooked by a picturesque Mont Blanc. Enjoy hot air ballooning, paragliding or the Tramway du Mont Blanc, just a taste of the myriad of activities offered at St. Gervais that allow you to indulge your every whim. The Tramway du Mont Blanc is one of the last three narrow-gauge railways in France today. In the winter it allows access to skiing in Prarion / Bellevue (1800 m). In the summer taking you to the foot of Bionnassay Glacier at Nid d'Aigle situated at 2372 m in altitude. From there, experienced and well equipped mountaineers enjoy access to the Tete Rosse and the Gouter mountain huts where they rest before the ascension of Mont Blanc. Besides skiing and mountaineering, St. Gervais is also known for its thermal baths. Since 1806, the Baths of St. Gervais-les-Bains have been reputed for the treatment of dermatological conditions. The treatments use the Saint-Gervais-les-Bains natural thermal water which has anti-inflammatory qualities, gently soothing and healing the skin. In addition, St. Gervais-les-Bains baths show characteristics of dual pathology that treat Asthma and Eczema, both very common in children.
