    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The French Alps have some of the most thrilling & exciting skiing in the world. The most popular area is called Espace Killy. Some Espace killy facts

    300km of slopes
    Green runs : 20
    Blue runs : 60
    Red runs : 35
    Black runs : 16
    Cross country trails : 44 km
    2 snowparks
    2 glaciers
    Ski lifts : 90
    10 free ski lifts

    An area within Espace Killy is the Three Valleys where with the net work of lifts you can ski in to Italy & around some of the larger area in the Savoy such as Tignes & Val 'd Isere.

    There is one Ski school after another in all the resorts, hitching up with one will not be a problem, especially outside school holidays.

    Equipment: Can all be hired or bought once here

    Ardeche Activities

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Ardeche is a very popular area for kyaking & canoing, there are dozens of water sport schools and hire centres dotted along the river shores. 62 km of the 120km Ardeche River is navigatable, with 20 sets of rapids along the way to get your heart pumping.
    The schools were not open when we visited, but we do plan to return & have a go one day. In the 70s my aunt actually worked as a watersports intructor here.

    The steep rocky gorges also make this a great place for rock climbing, over the hills mountain biking & also hiking.

    Check out the web page below for lots of great information about all the activities in the area.
