185133107 0964c43281 z National Holiday in France: what we like the most in the neighboring country is...

The 14th of July marks the Holiday in France. The origin of this commemorative celebration is the taking of the Bastille, an event considered as the starting point of the French Revolution.

Without being a precedent, we will pay a small tribute to our neighboring country on its most important day. So let’s talk about what we like the most about France that is … the French Alps. Let’s see some things that we are passionate about our favorite summit:

Mountain villages as Chamonix

This French town has 350 kilometers of marked hiking trails, 50 kilometers of mountain bike trails, climbing, mountaineering, summer tobogganing, paragliding, canyoning, golf, a variety of exhibitions and excellent gastronomy. Do you begin to understand why we like it so much?

Aiguille du Midi Cable Car

It is one of the most spectacular cable cars in the world and the highest in Europe. It is taken precisely from the center of Chamonix. We take the cable car of Aiguille du Midi and we planted ourselves directly at 3840 meters of height. The views are from another planet.

 Mont Blanc Tour

It is the most popular trek in Europe and is considered one of the most beautiful and spectacular circuits in the world. A trek through 10 mountain passes, and admiring 40 glaciers that descend from the peaks. Although sharing ground with Switzerland and Italy, today is his day is more French than ever.

Refuges, lakes and glaciers

In the Tour of the Red Needles in the French Alps, we contemplate some of the most fabulous alpine landscapes. One of the most incredible experiences is to spend the night in a shelter at 2350 meters, on the shores of a lake of glacial origin. Prepare the cameras, because the sunset over the Mont Blanc massif is absolutely great.

Touching the Sky in Mont Blanc

We love to feel close to the stars. Of the French too. We propose an intense week of mountaineering in the valley of Chamonix learning techniques of high mountain and progression in glacier, that later you will be able to use in other ascensions. The goal is to reach the most mythical summit of European mountaineering.

What do you like most about France? Happy National Day for all our French adventurers.
