What people are saying about these trips


 

There are many reasons for choosing France

The French Alps are an invitation to explore the outdoors in all possible ways. The charming town of Chamonix, lying at the foot of the Mont Blanc massif and the Aiguille du Midi, makes a great starting point. To the south, three stunning national parks ‒Vanoise, Ecrins and Mercantour‒ allure hikers and nature lovers from all around the world.

Best time to visit:

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

What’s the weather like?

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

Getting there

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
