The French Alps are the perfect hotspot for ski lovers. This means that they are at their busiest during the winter. But have you ever thought about what they’re like during the summer? Apparently, they have quite a lot to offer, and far fewer tourists around to bother you!
Going on a guided biking trip is a wonderful way to get a close look at the beautiful scenery and nature the French Alps have to offer. There are countless bike paths around the area ad you can easily rent a bicycle and join a group with a well-versed guide to show you all the ins and outs of this beautiful place. Don’t forget to take the difficulty level into account and join a trip that matches your skill!
The French Alps are cold and snowy during the winter, which makes them less than ideal for hikers. In the summer, however, they turn into a hiking wonderland! You can pick up a map and decide on your own trail, or you can join a guided tour to get the local perspective and the inside details on the hidden gems around. With all the beautiful lakes, waterfalls, flora, and fauna around, you are sure to have a good time either way.
The Acrobranche action park has a little something for everyone. Those of you who feel like getting physical but don’t want to do it in nature would love it. The park is full of extreme versions of playground monkey bars: ziplines, rope bridges, an obstacle course, and pretty much anything you need to pretend you’re Tarzan for a day.
This extreme sport is an Alpine favorite. It combines sightseeing, adrenaline, and actual flying. Paragliding would involve you being harnessed to a glider alongside a guide who will literally send you flying on air currents around the mountain peaks. Sounds like a dream, but it’s totally real and there are several paragliding schools around the area that would love to show you how it’s done.
