The Alps are the highest mountains in Europe, and Mont Blanc, on the border between France and Italy, is Europe's highest peak. The high French Alps are a dramatic and environmentally-sensitive area, where snow lies all year round in some spots; this is an area for hardy hikers and mountaineers. The lower Alps, the alpine foothills of the Vercors, and the Jura, offer beautiful mountain environments ideal for many outdoor pursuits, and appeal to nature-lovers. The highest areas are located along the Swiss and Italian borders, and it is here that two of France's national parks are located. Click for Climate and weather in the French Alps
