All in one! France
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover All in one!

La Meije, Verdon, the Calanques... With a wealth of majestic natural landscapes, the region offers 8,860 mi of signposted and maintained hiking footpaths, which is equivalent to 10 % of the total managed nationally by the FFRP (Fédération Française de Randonnée Pédestre ? French Hiking Association). Although they are especially concentrated in the Hautes-Alpes and the Alpes-Maritimes, they are present across the whole region.
With 933 routes, the cliffs of Verdon represent a first class climbing site. In 1998, the region had 14 'via ferrata' (out of the 31 listed in France) and their number continues to grow.
As far as mountaineering is concerned, the highest summit of the Écrins National Park is higher than 12,000 ft.
In the winter, of course, you can devote time to skiing. The Hautes-Alpes offer internationally famous slopes like Serre-Chevalier or Risoul, where the snow remains excellent right up to the south of the Alps, at the Isola 2000 resort, for example.
