A totally flexible, tailor made activity holiday in the French Alps. Choose from a range of activities and accommodation to create your week of fun and adventure in the sun.
If you are a family with teenagers or younger children, an outdoory couple, or a group of adventurous minded friends looking for active holiday ideas, then read on...!
There are so many things to do in the Alps, you'll be spolt for choice! Walk in to a high mountain refuge 'en famille', take your fiancee paragliding, challenge your head for heights on one of the biggest via ferratas in the Southern Alps, slide down a natural toboggan and plunge into deep pools of clear water canyoning, give someone an adrenalin rush to remember on their birthday by sending them down the longest and fastest tyrolean zip wire in europe..... go mountain biking, white water rafting, rock climbing, kayaking..... the choice is yours!
With this holiday we give you activity points that you can exchange for a range of activities including canyoning, via ferrata, mountain biking, walking, tree climbing, rafting, paragliding, caving.... and more to tailor make your ideal activity week.
We have a range of accommodation including camping, luxury chalet with private hot tub, farmhouse bed and breakfast, chalet style youth hostel or hotel to suit your budget.
When you arrive we will meet you to explain the week and give you maps and directions for getting to the activities. They are all easy to find so don't worry about getting lost! We will also suggest walks and other things to do near the meeting points if you would like to have a full day out and give you advice on markets, events and other things to see and do whilst you are here. There are some beautiful lakes (including a great life-guarded swimming lake), villages, museums, nature walks... and we are in the area throughout your stay for any questions, advice or information.

The nearest major city is Gap which is just south of Grenoble and north of Marseille. Gap has a train station which links to the major TGVs such as Aix-en-Provence and Lyon and also has a night train directly from Paris. The nearest airports are Marseille, Genoble or Lyon but Nice, Turin and Geneva are also drivable distance.
We highly recommend you self drive rather than let us drive you to and from the activities. The area has so much to offer and for you to explore in your free time and public transport is limited. Have a look at our our blog on stop-overs to help plan your journey.
However, if you are a group with a full itinerary and would like a quote for a transport included holiday, please just let us know when you make your enquiry.
