Glaciers and high altitude trails

When we speak of the French Alps, then we think of the beautiful holiday areas in the region "Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur" and "Rhône-Alpes". In the National Park Vanoise example, there are approximately 500 km of well-marked hiking trails. Peaks of up to 3000 metres in height are not uncommon. Another highlight is the Ecrins National Park with its imposing four-thousand "Barre des Ecrins". Do you like kayaking white water rafting, paragliding, hang gliding and horse riding? All on the river Ubaye!
