Region/State: Savoie

Savoie, a picturesque department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of southeastern France, is renowned for its stunning alpine landscapes, making it a magnet for outdoor enthusiasts year-round. During the winter months, the area transforms into a premier skiing destination, with world-class resorts such as Courchevel, Méribel, and Val Thorens offering an extensive range of slopes suitable for all levels of skiers and snowboarders. As the snow melts and spring emerges, these snowy slopes give way to lush green trails perfect for hiking, mountain biking, and climbing. The region is also dotted with crystal-clear lakes, such as Lake Bourget and Lake Annecy, ideal for water sports including kayaking, sailing, and swimming. For thrill-seekers, paragliding over the dramatic landscapes of the French Alps offers a breathtaking bird’s-eye view of this spectacular region.
