Route de Thones, France, March 17, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The French Alps Tour has organized a week-long trip (4-11 September, 2010) in the less trodden parts of the French Alps. Being an avid traveler herself, Cynthia designed this tour to take advantage of the places that has brought her the most pleasure in the two years of living in the Alps, as well as focusing on those things that are unique to the region and can't be experienced in other parts of France. The diversity of the land is secret of Savoie and the French Alps. You can find magnificent landscapes with deep blue lakes, colorful vineyards, Medieval towns and castles, quaint ancient villages, modern metropolitan cities, tall snowy mountains, and green valleys dotted with wild flowers. Eight months out of the year, the weather is mild and mostly sunny.
This tour package reveals the most exotic and interesting destinations of the French Alps. Travelers have the opportunity to pamper themselves at the Aix les Bains thermal baths inside their lakeside hotel, or take a horseback ride in the Alps, or fly through the trees at the High Ropes Adventure for those adventurous spirits. Food lovers can enjoy local chocolates, cheeses, wines and walnut oils during the scheduled tastings. The Tour also offers a short cooking class taught by one of Grand Bornand's best chefs and restaurateurs. Lyon's Old Town or Vienne's Roman Temple and Forum are included in the tour schedule for the history enthusiasts. Guests will have the opportunity to explore the towns on their own, shop at their leisure, and relax while enjoying the scenery. Wander the Medieval town of Annecy, nicknamed the Venice of the French Alps, and take a boat ride on its crystal blue lake. Enjoy watching the hang gliders and sunset at a catered outdoor dinner on the top of a mountain overlooking Annecy’s lake.
