With its stunning landscapes, joi de vivre, and mouthwatering gastronomy, it’s no surprise that France is the number one most visited country in the world.
Things to do & activities in France
Go Skiing in the French Alps
Winter sports enthusiasts would lose their minds at the French Alps, as this region has some of the best ski slopes in Europe! Although not the cheapest of getaways, there is nothing like spending your days skiing and your evenings drinking wine in front of a log fire in your rented chalet or slope-side hotel. What are you waiting for? The slopes await!
Fall in Love with Paris
A global center for art, fashion, gastronomy, and culture, you can’t come to France without visiting its impressive capital, Paris. More than living up to its reputation as a major European city, Paris is packed full of iconic landmarks, charismatic architecture, and designer boutiques, not to mention a vibrant cafe culture and fine dining that will make you fall in love with Paris. A simply amazing city to get lost in, you can wander the streets, absorbing the energy and eat your way through Paris until your heart’s content.

Discover Lyon and its History
For a true French city, step back in time and discover the 2,000 years of history that is reflected in medieval Lyon. A great city known for its commerce, Renaissance neighborhoods, and impressive gastronomic scene, this is the place to go if you want to experience the French art de vivre (‘art of living’) where food, wine, culture, family, and friends are all we need to make life worthwhile. Soak up some culture, visit some medieval castle and explore the French countryside around Lyon, and you can be sure you will leave the city in awe.
Gawk at Mont St-Michel
As one of Europe’s most unforgettable sights, take some time to visit the mesmerizing Mont St-Michel while in France. Set atop an island commune in Normandy, the whole experience of this visit is majestic. From the walk towards the impressive mount to ascending the cobbled streets to the highest point on the island, there are no words to describe how incredible and awe-inspiring this experience actually is without experiencing it for yourself. Whilst in Normandy, don’t forget to also pay a visit to the D-Day Beaches. There are many bunkers and fortifications as well as memorials and museums where you can learn about France’s history in WWII.
