Trekking holidays in the French AlpsAdventure Holidays in France

France is a large country by European standards, with a wide range of differing environments. The country's most important mountain range is the French Alps, a rugged region with numerous snow-capped peaks above 4000 metres. Mont Blanc (4808m / 15,767ft) is the highest of these summits and lies at the junction of France, Switzerland and Italy. There are many classic trekking, climbing, mountain biking and road biking routes and itineraries in this part of France, many of them accessed through the town of Chamonix. The second biggest range of mountains in France is the Pyrenees, which forms a natural border with Spain and rises above 3400 metres at its highest. The outlying French province of Corsica is another notably mountainous region, with more than twenty 2000 metre peaks. It is the most mountainous of the Mediterranean islands. There is a certain excitement, a certain 'je ne sais quoi' about any visit to France. This is associated with the feeling that somehow life is easier there and that the pace of life is more relaxed. It is all about sitting in a pavement cafe (the sun always shines in France) drinking a cafe creme, eating a pain au chocolat and watching the world go by. This is an essential part of the French experience and whether you are walking, cycling or climbing in the mountains, or working on your tan on a Mediterranean beach, you will never be too far from a 'sympatique' cafe or bar.
