Your Essential Ferry Travel Guide To France
Discover Things To Do In France
With French ports such as Calais, Dunkirk and Dieppe in such easy reach, it's no wonder we love to keep visiting the beautiful landscapes and historic cities of this amazing country.
France's landscape is varied and interesting, with the northern coastlines of Brittany, the snow-topped mountains in the Alps, the verdant meadows in Burgundy and the golden, sandy beaches in the south. There are several big cities in France, but the country is generally rural, making it an ideal destination for outdoor activities.
What to see, do and visit
Ski resorts in the French Alps are among the best in the world, with tourists regularly flocking in huge numbers to hit the slopes. Outdoor types can also enjoy specialist areas for hiking, cycling, canoeing, watersports and other activities, as well as excellent facilities for camping and caravanning.
For families, France is also home to Europe's most magical theme park, Disneyland® Paris! A break that is sure to delight both children and adults alike, with everything from excellent rides, restaurants and other leisure facilities on your doorstep, not to mention all your favourite Disney characters!
