Mini travel guide for explorers

Looking for a holiday trip to France? Whether you like snow, sun, or simply nice landscapes there is always a place for you! If you like culture, history and ruins, you will find something to visit pretty much anywhere you go.

For mountain explorers…

France offers plenty of activities in the mountains, which you can enjoy during summer, just as much as during winter, thanks to activities such as summer sledging. The Alps are renowned for their exceptional scenery and are home to the highest point in the European Union called the Mont Blanc which peaks at 4808 meters.

For beach explorers…

The south coast of France is ideal if you want to get a nice tan. On the east part of the coast between Marseille and Nice, you will mainly find narrow and rocky beaches, whereas on the west part around Narbonne you will find wide and sandy beaches. You also will find one of the best nature reserves such as the island of Porquerolles which is worth seeing for its untouched scenery, turquoise water and its amazing wildlife.

For the adventurous…

If you can’t make your mind up, Annecy is perfect for you, this medium sized city offers one of the purest lakes in Europe. During summer, the average temperature of the lake is 23 degrees, having said that, you can easily admire the mountains while swimming in the crystal-clear water or laying down on one of the various beaches.
