Weather varies greatly between regions: the northern cities and mountain towns have very cold winters (with heavy snowfalls on the mountains) and warm summers; while the coastal cities by the Mediterranean enjoy mild temperatures almost all year and very hot days during the summer season.
Most of the world’s major airlines have direct flights to Paris. Other important regional airports include Lyon, Nice, Marseille and Toulouse. France is well-connected to many European cities by train, bus or ferry. If you are traveling to the French Alps, the closest airports are Geneva (in Switzerland, near the French border), Grenoble and Chámbery. To explore the French Riviera, the best gateway is Nice.
France can be visited all-year-round. During spring (April-June) and fall (September-November) you’ll find less tourists, lower prices and mild temperatures. Summer (especially July) is very crowded. The ski season in the French Alps runs from December to April.
France is the largest country in Western Europe. Incredibly diverse, a trip to the country allows many possible itineraries. The glaciated peaks of the French Alps are the perfect scenery for all types of mountain activities, while visiting the wine regions of Champagne and Bordeaux makes for a singular experience. To the south, the French Riviera allures travelers with sun-drenched beaches and the island of Corsica, tucked in the Mediterranean Sea, provides endless options for hikers and explorers alike, including the most challenging hiking route in Europe: the GR20. When it comes to cities, the big favorite is always Paris: a major tourist destination featuring some of the world’s most iconic historical sites, museums, architecture and cuisine.
Cedric is a fantastic guide. He is helpful, friendly, very competent and caring. He made our time in Corsica very enjoyable and we would love to organise another trip with him in the future.
Great experience with very knowledgeable and friendly guides. Great atmosphere.
We had a great trip and it was an epic challenge but we only made it to 4400metres which is 400metres from the summit when we had to turn around as I became sick with altitude and needed to get down safely. So had to abandon our summit attempt. Gigio was a super guide and looked after us very well and got me as far as I could go but in the end the best decision was to come back down to a safe altitude and feel good again
We had an amazing trip and are not deterred from possibly trying it again someday but will look to acclimatise for longer next time
Thanks for organising our fantastic guide and tell him a big thank you from us
I had a great adventure to climb Mont Blanc and summit successful. The two guide are very nice, friendly and helpful, I really appreciate them. They always keep the safely first, well done. The experience is very good, from safety, service and Mountain View. I will introduce my friends to come here.
Thank you very much!
I joined this trip 30 Jul – 2 Aug with my friend from Japan. This was third try of mountaineering in foreign countries . The weather was not good, but we were able to stand on the summit. It was amazing experience for us because we have wanted to climb European mountains for a long time. We appreciate our guide and support staffs. Thank you!
My trip was great and the guides were the best!!!
I might recommend to extend the trip with a couple of more days to make sure the weather dont stop you from reaching the summit, and also to enjoy being in the mountains.
I had a brilliant time on my 2 day climbing ascent of Mont Blanc. The guide was great and I really enjoyed the challenge of the climb aswell as the stunning views and scenery. I would recommend this trip to anyone who is thinking of climbing Mont Blanc and feels they have the fitness and ability to do so in limited time and feels they are able enough for the harder Trois Monts route. It truely was an amazing experience!
More challenging than I thought I would be. Happy to get up; happy to get down. All 3 guides were great. Showed confidence, and took very good care of us 🙂
Safe and reliable guiding services. Would strongly recommend if you are fit and willing.
The tour was fantastic and it was made even better because of our guide, Raphael. He was incredibly nice and helpful while telling us funny and cool stories and facts! LOVED THE TOUR! RECOMMEND 10000000%
Mihnea is an awesome guide. He is very knowledgeable, great company and everything you would want in a guide. If I come back or do another route I will try to get him again for sure. Thank you.
It is a great though gruelling adventure that all mountain loving climbers should experience, especially under such wonderful care as that provided by the Damian and his colleagues from guiding team. Thanks to the piece of mind they provide – they look after your safety, food, transport, etc.- you can focus 100% on climbing this beautiful mountain.
We were very satisfied with the whole experience. Our guide Matteo was very experienced and taught us a lot during the short trip. He looked after us and made sure that we felt secure even on the most dangerous stages of the ascent and descent. I cannot express enough how happy we were with Matteo’s support and guidance. He was very professional during the whole trip and also very jovial and kept us a good company. His knowledge of the mountains and mountaineering is exceptional and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone wishing to climb in the Alps.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
