France off the beaten path

..Why settle for the usual?

France’s diverse regions offer a wide choice of settings for your next adventure holiday.

Some visitors seek a physical challenge, some to get back in touch with nature, others simply a scenic vista to relax and unwind. We work hand in hand with you to design an exciting and inspiring getaway. We love creating new experiences and surprising our clients– and your sense of adventure inspires our creativity. We will help you discover France off the beaten path through authentic, unusual and remarkable experiences.

To start off, it’s time to choose a region to focus on. Which inspires you the most? The Luberon in Provence, with its striking ochre landscapes, or awe-inspiring fields of lavender there? The grand snow-capped mountains of the Pyrenees National Park? Brittany’s savage coastline?  Wild birds wheeling over rushing rivers in the Loire Valley? The awesome beauty of the Dune de Pilat and the Arcachon Basin? As a first step, explore France’s diverse regions and settle on one, two or three to focus on as part of your bespoke adventure.

Next, decide on some extraordinary activities to add to your bespoke itinerary. Gain a bird’s-eye view from a hot air balloon ride or ULM (microlight aircraft); explore France’s diverse waterways by kayak or on a luxury barge; take yourself back into the past in a vintage 2CV car, or speed down snowy hills on a dogsled. Even seeing unusual and little-known places in Paris can feel quite adventurous. There are so many ways to enjoy France: the sky’s the limit!

In keeping with Exclusive France Tours’s philosophy, your adventure will always be led by a local expert. Their expertise, passion and insight into local customs will greatly enrich your experience. They will share their favourite places that are often well-hidden from tourists: the best places to view local wildlife, the best café or bistrot, the best market: all slices of authentic French life. With their guidance, you’ll see and live France from an insider’s perspective.
