As the Alps rise up from the Mediterranean Sea along one of the most famous coastlines in the world, they give birth to a very special and luminous land where nature offers an incomparable variety of scenery and atmosphere for your pleasure but also for adventure… These are the Azure Alps. The trip combines mountain meadows and forests, the majesty of treetops, picturesque perched villages, with the added bonus of a mirror of blue stretched out at your feet. This is the privilege of the Azure Alps.
