Whether it's rambling along walking trails through Alpine meadows, tackling legendary cycling climbs or participating in one of the many other outdoor activities on offer, the French Alps provides the perfect environment and simply stunning views.
Trekking around Mont Blanc affords some of the finest mountain scenery in Europe - flower-filled scenery and pretty villages at the lower levels through to glaciers and snowfields higher up.
And elevation is the name of the game for road cyclists who flock to the area for some of the most challenging climbs around, made famous by the Tour de France.
Mountain bikers are in their element too, often utilising the ski lift network to get up high before plotting their adventures downwards on a myriad of incredible trails.
Climbing, paragliding and whitewater rafting are just some of the other popular summer activities and in winter of course the area becomes a playground for skiers and snowboarders.
