    Explore Paris’ Wall of Love (Le mur des je t'aime)

    3.7
    Located in the Montmarte district of Paris, the Wall of Love--or as the French call it Le mur des je t'aime--is an off-the-beaten-path place to explore. For a city known for so many different sights to see, a simple wall full of "I Love You" over and over is easy to get lost in the mix. However, ...

    Étretat is a small tourist and farming town on the coast of Normandy, best known for its coastal cliffs. It features wide pebbled beaches, natural arches and an eroded rock—and hiking trails connecting them all together.

    Bike along the Canal de la Marne a l'Aisne between Reims and Sillery

    10.6 mi
    There is nothing as romantic as a slow bike along a canal in rural France. If you talk to your hotel, guest house or AirBnB, they should be able to help you rent a bike. Ours were delivered and were only 20 Euros per day. Once you have the bikes, just head to the canal. It's a really easy to find...

    Snowshoe the Cormet de Roselend

    18.6 mi / 2986 ft gain
    The Roselend mountain pass is known in the cycling world for being part of the Tour de France, but in the winter it is essentially deserted. There are a few old buildings, a small electrical station and you'll perhaps see some locals out for a ski, but my bet is you'll feel magnificently alone in...

    You can go there either by car, boat, or bus and then start hiking.I personnally did it using the bus service. It is quite simple, but since we were not in the high season, there was not a lot of bus going there. From Marseille, you need to go to the metro station Castellane and take the bus 19 t...

On top of that, cell phone reception is spotty at its best, so make sure to print some directions before hitting the road!This is a very remote spot on a large beach, the next supermarket...
