Mountain is the new seaside!

Holidaymakers tend to think that summer is incomplete without sea, sand and palm trees, while mountains remain associated to winter sports. Yet, it’s also an ideal summer holiday destination, less crowded, milder and just as pleasant. The French Alps are the perfect example of mountains where you can hike as well as swim and try many other activities. And to top it all, you’ll come back with a glow more radiant than a postcard from the Alps! Ready to go?

What to see and do

Lake Annecy

Lake Annecy is the perfect blend of landscapes, the best of both worlds. Here, the mountain overlooks the city and the waterfront. Lake Annecy is a place with a unique range of activities, perfect for holidays with your friends or family. It’s the dream destination for those keen on swimming, pedalo, water skiing, stand up paddleboarding but also hiking and biking; without forgetting sunbathing, obviously! As for the city of Annecy, it’s got a lot to boast about too: a quaint old town, picturesque canals and an architecture strongly marked by the Middle Ages and Renaissance. The “Venice of the Alps” has everything going for you!

The Mercantour National Park

Feeling like taking a break and embracing untouched and majestic nature? You’re going to love the Mercantour, one of France’s most protected ten national parks. Which means you’re likely to run into locals like the marmot or chamois! As you hike, enjoy the stark contrast between the Alpine mountains and the Mediterranean atmosphere. It’s the perfect haven of peace to take a well-deserved breath of fresh air.

La Grave and the Écrins National Park

Northwest of the Mercantour lies the Écrins National Park. Its mere name meaning "jewellery box" in French suggests the many natural treasures that are hidden there. Highly bucolic hikes where you can gaze at stunning glacier lakes, like the Glacier Noir, and a rich ecosystem with rare animals such as the ibex or the golden eagle basking in the radiant sunlight. You can also spot the Barre des Écrins, the range’s highest peak, gleaming at 13,458 ft. Lastly, don’t miss La Grave, one of France’s Most Beautiful Villages, a 5,000 foot-high stone-clad jewel lying at the feet of the lofty Meije mountain.

Get your fill of thrills   

The mountain, with its dizzying heights and breathtaking views, is the ideal place to get an adrenaline rush in the winter as well as in the summer. Whether you’re sporty or not, why not have a go at typical Alpine activities like: summer toboggan, paraglider, hang-glider, via ferrata, climbing, rafting or canyoning. Get ready for unique sensations in incredible surroundings! 

Feel on top of the world  

Tired of buildings blocking the view? In need of wide-open spaces that lie as far as the eye can see? You’ve chosen the right destination. Rise up and enjoy a breathtaking panorama at the top of the Aiguille du Midi. A cable car will take you up the famous 12,605 foot-high summit. Once you get there, you will feel on top of the world, literally. Let your senses soak in the immensity of the place and enjoy the view from one of France’s most loved peaks.

Recharge your batteries  

After all these emotions and activities, now is the time to get some well-deserved rest. The Alps and their pure waters boast numerous spa resorts, perfect to revitalise yourself. Head for Evian-les-Bains or Thonon-les-Bains for a nice hot bath with medicinal properties and enjoy the ultimate relaxing experience.
