- Skiing Skiing in France takes place in two parts of the country: the Alps and the 5 times smaller Pyrenees.
The skiing season in these starts in late autumn and ends in the first days of May. The height of the season is during February and March, which is reflected in the higher prices.
- Canal Cruising France is criss-crossed by canals and rivers.
Cruising these canals and rivers in France and in the old Europe is a delightful, peaceful and unforgettable experience. No matter the size of the boat, canal cruising is unique.
- Hiking Perhaps no country has a more extensive network of hiking trails and as much natural variety as France. There are thousands of miles of carefully marked trails in France known as Sentiers de Grande Randonne. As opposed to the hiking experience in America which is mostly related to wilderness in Europe hiking is a more civilized affair.
- Traditional sports Traditional boules (also called ptanque) requires much social skill as well as adeptness.
People who wish to join may find it easier if they speak the language.
