Camping du Glacier D'Argentiere is situated right in the middle of the Chamonix Valley, in the Haute Savoie region of France, at the foot of the Grands Montets cable car, the departure point of numerous walking, mountain bike and mountaineering trails.

It is an ideal stop for those doing the tour of the Mont-Blanc (the campsite is situated right on the route of the GR5). Numerous mountaineering and climbing sites are in the vicinity.

Situated 7 kilometers from Chamonix Mont-Blanc, at the beginning of Argentiere, the campsite is at 1200 meters altitude, in the hamlet of Les Chosalets. We are set back 200 meters from the R.N. 506 France / Switzerland road link, an oasis of calm in the hustle and bustle of the Chamonix Valley.

The campsite lies in total peace and quiet, away from any traffic. To aid in the peace and quiet of the campsite, no cars can enter or leave the site from 22.00 pm until 06.00 am. Those returning or arriving outside of these hours can make use of the carpark at the bottom of the village.
