Haute-Savoie (French Alps)Step into the Void

If you don't mind heights and have faith in modern technology then you might want to 'Step into the Void', or as the French say, take a 'Pas dans le Vide'. Step into the Void, inaugurated in December 2013 is a 12,602 ft (3,842 meters) high sky-walk at the Aiguille du Midi in Chamonix France.

Step into the Void is a 2x2 meter - 6.5x6.5 ft glass room above a 3,280 ft drop. It can withstand winds of up to 130mph and is the highest sky-walk in the world. The glass used in Step into the Void has three layers and was specially made for the project.

To protect Step into the Void visitors wear slippers over their shoes and can't bring bags, phones (so no selfies) or cameras into the sky-walk. But workers at Step into the Void will happily take your photo and let you take photos as long as you don't take your camera or phone into Step into the Void.

Step into the Void is at the summit of the Aiguille du Midi. After taking two cable-cars (via the Téléphérique de l'Aiguille du Midi) to the Aiguille du Midi, there's an evaluator to the upper level. Step into the Void is included in the price to the top of the Aiguille du Midi, adult €55 round trip, 2014 prices.
