Alpes du Nord (Northern Alps) is part of France’s famous mountain range, between the regions of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. Mont Blanc stands at 4,810 metres, making it the highest peak in Alpes du Nord. Summertime sees the northern mountains covered with spruce and fir forests, where you can embark on miles of well-maintained hiking trails.

    Winter is the best time to visit Alpes du Nord – locals and travellers make their way to major skiing sites like Paradiski and Trois Vallées to enjoy skiing, snowboarding, and ski jumping during their holiday. Some of France’s oldest ski resorts, like Chamonix and Megève, can be found in Alpes du Nord.
