With over 300 days of sunshine a year, Nice Côte d’Azur is the ideal destination for outdoor activities.
Whether you are a novice or an experienced sportsman, set off on an adventure!
A whole territory is open to you, both on the coast and on the top of the mountains of the high country.
Hiking or cycling, discover new sensations in the middle of nature
Are you a keen hiker? Follow one of the many trails and walk for miles through the nature. Don’t forget to stop at the various viewpoints to admire the spectacular 360° landscape. The flora and fauna around you are exceptional. Watch them change from one season to the next, when the vegetation changes colour and the wildlife also takes advantage of the Mediterranean climate.
Discovering Nice Côte d’Azur by bike is also possible. Whether you are an amateur or an experienced cyclist, get on the saddle and ride through the most beautiful routes. Choose your pace: in the middle of the forest for a sporty ride or in the city for a family ride. For the less adventurous, don’t worry! You can also rent electric mountain bikes to enjoy and roam without the slightest effort.

And for even more thrills, how about a first paragliding experience in Valdeblore? Take off like a bird and fly over this magnificent territory. It’s even more beautiful from above!
Are you more sea than mountain? Take the plunge along the coast and discover the sea bed and aquatic animals. The spectacle is breathtaking! Then board a boat and head out to sea to meet dolphins, whales and sea turtles. The Pelagos sanctuary, a protected marine area of almost 87,500 km² in the heart of the Mediterranean, is the perfect place to observe animals in their natural habitat…
