France is one of the premiere places in all of Europe for extreme sport destinations. When you think of France, many think of the Alps and a sport paradise, it’s no wonder that along with the United States, the Winter Olympic Games have been held in France the most.
Some of the best extreme sport destinations are Grenoble and Chamonix. The area surrounding Chamonix, home to the Mont Blanc region, is especially popular with those who are seeing new and exciting adventures. There is literally something to get out and do for any kind of extreme adventure you can come up with!
Home to not only some of the best skiing and snowboarding in Europe, these areas also offer ice climbing, dog sled tours, and ice diving under some of the area lakes. For those who are more summer sport orientated then there are plenty of extreme options available as well, anything from bungee jumping to mountaineering, paragliding to rafting and even canyoneering.
And don’t think that just because it is a winter favourite, that Chamonix isn’t full of action packed extreme sports all year round. The steep and rugged trails provide a perfect challenge for mountain biking, as well as hiking for those who are looking to summit Mont Blanc.
If you are considering planning a holiday to a place that is known for all of its great extreme and adventure sport options, it makes a lot of sense to explore everything that France and especially Chamonix has to offer. With everything that is offered there, it would be extremely difficult to end up disappointed.
