France - French Alps & The Jura Mountains (Chapter)

The Alps and the Jura mountains are places where superlatives fail: colossal peaks thrusting upward into cobalt-blue skies, crevasse-fissured glaciers, tumbling crystal-clear rivers, sapphire lakes, and mountain passes blocked by snow for nine months a year.

- try, just try, to ski all the terrain at the vast, international ski area of Portes du Soleil

- explore stately Annecy’s medieval lanes, strongholds and crystal-clear waters

- hike up to turquoise Lac Blanc for a breathtaking view of the Mont Blanc massif
