French Alps to Provence to South of France
Organising this 9 day event for July 2024
I have organised many events in the French Alps and other regions in France over the years. I only combine French Alps and the South of France once in every 5 years as the logistics is complicated with the multiple locations. The schedule is packed with high adrenaline activities and beautiful sight seeing, so you will need to be fit and full of energy. All of the activities are suitable for beginners, however if you are not comfortable with water sports, contact me and I may be able to give you information that would assure you or find you an alternative activity. The group has already purchased their flights from London to Geneva and Marseille back to London. If you wish to join this group contact Michael and he will search for the cheapest flight for you.
