Winter Holidays in France

France Winter Holidays

One of the most iconic destinations for winter sports, France is blessed with magnificent mountain ranges including the Alps and the Pyrenees. Famed for its wine and cuisine, you will enjoy delicious meals including local winter specialties such as fondue, raclette and tartiflette, not to mention lunchtime stops for cakes and hot chocolate! 

The winter season begins in early December and stretches through to early April, with temperatures from Christmas to early February ranging from +4°C to -10°C. For those who prefer warmer climes, March and April can reach an enjoyable +15°C, perfect for a lunchtime break and to enjoy a picnic in the sun. Regions such as the Queyras in the Pyrenees are famed for their unique microclimate, which helps with snowsure winters and offers perfect terrain for snowshoe exploration.
