An Adventure Activity Holiday in France

It also doesn’t matter what your skill level is, because we only work with trusted local operators who understand that not everyone wants to get out on the ledge of adventure straight away. But you can stick your toes out as far as you like and we’ll be there to make it happen for you!

Here are a few of the exciting things you might like to try on one of the activity holidays in France.

Mountain Biking and Hiking

If you’re planning to visit France in summer, the terrain lends itself perfectly to mountain biking and hiking activity holidays. In the southern part of the country, in places like Les Gets, Vallée de la Bévéra and Samoëns, there are some wonderful biking trails of different levels with the added advantage of spectacular views to keep you company. In terms of hiking (which is practically a national pastime here) there are excellent trails all over the country. If you’re a beginner, or you have younger children, you might consider Provence, or if you’re pretty fit and up for a challenge, exploring Corsica on foot can make for a magical adventure.

Rock Climbing

Wherever there are mountains (and France’s are particularly spectacular), someone’s going to want to climb them! Fancy something a little more adrenaline inducing? Let us take you rock climbing somewhere like Alpe d’Huez or Tignes. Again, if you’re just starting out in the sport, or are even a complete novice, our fantastic fully-trained local guides will set you challenges appropriate to your skills and keep you safe at all times.

Skiing and More

We could hardly mention the French Alps and not mention skiing! Or snowboarding, or ski touring or snowshoeing, for that matter! As one of the world’s most renowned ski regions, in winter you can hit the powder all over the Alps in places like Les Gets, Châtel, la Rosière, Avoriaz, Les Arcs and St Foy.

Sea Kayaking

For something completely different, our activity holidays based around Moliets and Aquitaine can introduce you to the wonderful world of sea kayaking. This is something suitable for anyone in the family and you’ll be able to explore the amazing rock gardens situated around the tidal ranges in this picturesque area.
