The French Alps are home to the iconic Mont Blanc, western Europe’s highest peak
On all sides are towering mountain slopes with world-class skiing, hiking, mountaineering, and unspoiled nature. Wintertime visitors will enjoy fresh powder on epic pistes, while summertime visitors can take a cable car to L’Aiguille du Midi to see panoramic views, explore the lovely canal-based village of Annecy, visit medieval historic landmarks, such as castles and citadels, hike to turquoise glacial lakes, stroll through charming village markets sampling local cheeses and indulge in classic French cuisine.
