DID YOU KNOW that France is a major skiing destination? In fact, France possesses the largest skiing area in the world. From December to April, you can enjoy the snow-capped summits of the Alps, the Pyrenees, among others. Even those who are not into skiing can spend unforgettable holidays in the French Mountains by hiking, enjoying traditional winter gastronomy or relaxing in fully equipped cabins.


You can also enjoy the French Mountains during summer as they are ideal places for hiking. National parks such as the Cévènnes, the Ecrins or the Mercantour, which were respectively created in 1970, 1973 and 1979, are famous for their beautiful trails. France developed national parks to protect the rich fauna and flora that they possess and to create awareness for sustainable development.
