Activities and sports in the open air

The Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolitan & Visitors Bureau is at your disposal free of charge to help you put together a tailor-made programme that meets your expectations and your budget.

Due to its privileged position between the sea and the mountains, the Nice Côte d’Azur metropolitan area and its region offers the ideal setting to indulge all year round in the numerous out‑of‑the‑ordinary leisure and sports activities in the heart of the countryside.

Supervised by mountain specialists, you will be spoilt for choice between canyoning or rafting down a river through preserved countryside to Roubion or to Duranus. You can choose to get close to the cliffs on the via ferrata of Lantosque, to touch the top of the trees with the high-rope course in Isola, practice climbing in Roquebillière or fly like a bird by taking the giant zip line in La Colmiane, the biggest zip line in France (2,663 metres).

Do you prefer walking? The magnificent Mercantour National Park lends itself to outstanding hikes and walks at an altitude of more than 2,000 metres. Impress your colleagues with the discovery of the 36,000 prehistoric cave paintings in the Vallée des Merveilles, the biggest open-air museum in Europe!

As well as a flora of unbelievable wealth, this classified archaeological site is also shelter for many savage animal species including Chamois, Ibex, Roe Deers, Groundhogs, Golden Eagles and bearded Vultures…. Get a breath of pure fresh air and stop for a picnic at the side of a surprisingly emerald coloured lake.

Are you worried about the uncertainty of the weather? Swimming, climbing, canyoning and caving… In the heart of the countryside, the activity centre Vesubia Park in Saint-Martin Vésubie offers you the entire experience of nature sports….. indoors!

Cycling on the Nice Côte d’Azur is also an experience. 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.

The endless variety offered by the Nice Côte d’Azur metropolitan area as well as its authentic, unusual, and even unique features are certainly a guarantee of the success of your event.
