The Roya Valley: The paradise of canyoning !!
The famous Côte d’ Azur – join us for some marvellous days of sports and exploration in the magnificent and pristine hinterland of the French Riviera. Discover the hinterland near the Mercantour National Park, its crystal clear fresh water and enchanting Provençal hilltop villages. But one of the greatest pleasures in this part of the planet is the opportunity of having lunch or dinner, Provencal-style. With regional delicacies such as fresh fish, peppers, olives, garlic and fine ‘vin rosé’, this really is foodie heaven.
