French Alps Adventure - Activity School Trips

A trip to the French Alps provides outstanding natural beauty, an exhilarating range of adventure activities and a superb choice of curriculum led excursions.

Alpine Adventure holiday in the French Alps

The trip to the French Alps is often the most popular tour in school, given the outstanding natural beauty, an exhilarating range of adventurous activities and a superb choice of curriculum led excursions.

Our Mountain adventure travel tour, is one of the most demanding and rewarding of all our Adventure activity programmes, but as a result it is often the most popular and early booking is highly recommended.

Our alpine adventure tours are easily accessible by road from Calais and enjoy dramatic scenery, delightful mountain villages, along with superb sports and leisure facilities.

It is completely up to you how adventurous you would like your activity programme to be, but it could include white water rafting, high ropes, canoeing, sailing and guided mountain walking. For a small supplement we can include the thrill of exploring this alpine environment on a via ferrata.

The Haute Savoie region also offers a wonderful selection of curriculum led excursions and is particularly suitable for Geography, History and Language students. Because of its excellent links to the continental motorway system, Calais is only 12 hours away.

I have been organising our Disney trip for the last 4 years and can I say the help and support I get from all your staff is outstanding. In particular I wish to bring to your attention Sophie Brandon, she is always polite, courteous and nothing is too much trouble for her, even some of my silly questions she always answers very quickly and efficiently. I feel she goes the extra mile. Over my teaching career I have been EVC at several schools and have never had dealings with anyone as good Sophie. Alan Farmer, Bluecoat CofE School and Music College
