Top experiences in France’s national parks

The proportion of protected land in mainland France is surprisingly low: eight parcs nationaux fully protect just 0.8% of the country. But the government is making a press to obtain 30% of its land territory under special environmental protection.

With incredible diversity throughout the parks, you will find superb opportunities for wildlife watching, skiing, mountain biking, swimming and hiking. From the lovely coves of Calanques to the diverse fauna of Mercantour and the park closest to Paris, listed here are the best things to accomplish in the national parks of mainland France. The calanques (coves) of the coast surrounding Marseille became France’s 10th national park in 2012, preserving their astonishing beauty and harboring an extraordinary wealth of flora and fauna: including 900 plant species, Bonelli’s eagle. You can find 12 miles of spectacular promontories, sheer cliffs, hidden coves and beaches along the coast.

Marseille beaches offer lots of preference with a style for each and every occasion: inlets carved out of limestone cliffs, an ideal antidote after long hikes; idyllic boat trips to nature reserves on sandy islands; wide city beaches to play sport or even to party with friends; and private nooks. For a great itinerary, we recommend at least two, three days so you can explore the city’s famous port, its diverse neighborhoods, and the delicious food scene. Tack on more time for Marseille’s ancient sites and modern museums, with possible day-trips to the Provençal countryside or Mediterranean coast.
