    -Watersports. In the spring and summer the rivers Durance and Guisane swell with Alpine melt-water. This attracts thrill-seekers who come for the first-rate whitewater conditions – there are some spectacular drops and long stretches of rapids to battle through. Local businesses offer kayak, canoe and rafting trips. The rivers, together with their various tributaries, offer astounding scenery, with gorges and steep mountainsides clad with dense woodland.

    -Briançon. This medieval walled city is the highest city in Europe, at more than 1300 metres above sea level. The UNESCO-listed fortifications here were designed by the esteemed military engineer Vauban in the 1600s to defend this vital strategic post on the very edge of southeastern France. Inside Briançon see the Cathedral of Notre Dame and Saint Nicholas, recognised by its remarkable twin bell towers.

    -Gastronomy. At the various local restaurants, inns, open farms and markets you’ll be able to get to know the cuisine of the Hautes-Alpes. Laragne and Queyras are two locations in this department known for their superb cheese – bleu du Queyras is a wonderful cow’s cheese. Honey is another important product in this Alpine region, as are some fabulous wines, known for being agreeably fruity.
